Samhain - Transition rituals

How Samhain got their band name - CuinbattleDeath rock and horror punk: behold the diet the gothic metal band Samhain put itself on. No wonder they were in business for only four years.

It is only fair to report here that the group continued as Danzig (after their frontman Glenn Danzig).

The name Samhain comes from the Celtic culture: it is the name of the Celtic New Year that begins around 1 November, but there is no set day for it - it is too complicated to explain, it has something to do with the lunisolar calendar or so.

Suffice to say that Samhain marks the transition of summer to winter and that Halloween has everything to do with it.

Active: 1983-1987, USA
