Black Aria II is a 2006 album by Glenn Danzig, the follow-up to his 1992 Black Aria classical solo album. Despite being discussed in various interviews throughout the 1990s, Black Aria II was not released until October 17, 2006. The album reached the top 10 on the Billboard classical music chart.[4]

Music and recording

The writing of Black Aria II was completed in early 2001.[5] The recording began in late 2004, with the majority of tracks finished by early 2005.[5] Due to the album release date being delayed by record label issues, Glenn Danzig used the extra time to further refine the album and record an extra song.[5]

The subtitle of Black Aria II is Lilith, Whore of the Desert, a reference to Lilith, the first wife of Adam and the subject of the album's content.[6] Danzig explained “This one is more Eastern, because it's about Lilith. It still has a lot of the classic elements I like, but many of the sounds come from elsewhere because of this fascinating story, which has its origins in even older myths and legends.”[6]

Black Aria II is produced, written and - with a couple of exceptions - performed by Danzig.[6]

Track listing

Artist Bill Sienkiewicz painted the album's cover art.


Discussing the writing and recording process, Danzig stated “I just let the story take me. Each song tells me what it wants. Sometimes I have it all written in my head - every single part. But at other times, I'll be doing the skeleton framework and different parts will come to me. At times, I'll be listening to playback and suddenly I'll hear where another part can go. It tells me what I need to add.”[6]

[6] "Unclean Sephira" consists entirely of layered vocal tracks.[6] Some of the pieces comprise up to 40 individual music tracks.[6]
