Misery Obscura: The ART and Photography of Eerie Von
Eerie Von will be performing LIVE and displaying his personal art at The Shrunken Head (Columbus, OH) on June 25, 2011.
Eerie Von is widely known as the Bass player from the Goth Punk pioneers Samhain, and the Hard rock/metal band Danzig. A lifelong photographer and graduate from The Germain School of Photography, Von photographed everything from The Misfits humble beginnings to the underground journey of Samhain to the heights of Danzig's stadium-rock glory. With behind the scene shots, he essentially captured the dark heart of rock's most vital and bleeding-edge periods.
As of 2011, Eerie has contributed to 27 commercially released recordings since 1983, which includes 5 solo releases. His music has evolved into "an intriguing blend of rockabilly, blues, and goth." Further described, "The Darkness, the Blues, the strong vocals are still there, only now it seems more natural." Von continues in whatever direction his mood, and the songs take him. But, as he states, "I'll be a Punk Rock guy until I die, and there will always be blues in everything I do. It'll always be dark, that's just how it is."
