A few weeks ago, we learned that Danzig, who is keeping pretty busy in terms of writing new material nowadays, will be contributing a track to The Walking Dead. We didn't have many details at the time, but Danzig has since elaborated.

During a recent appearance on the Eddie Trunk show, Danzig said he wasn't sure if the track would make it into the show or end up on a soundtrack but he definitely sent the AMC show a new track:

"I don't know if it's gonna be in an upcoming episode — they wanna find a place for it there — but it'll definitely be on the soundtrack."

He added: "I actually wrote that song kind of just because I became a fan of the show. And I'm, like, 'I should write a song for them and see if they wanna use it.' And then my lawyer, Peter, was telling me about the soundtrack, and I submitted it, and they loved it."

'zig, as I like to call him, said he didn't catch on to The Walking Dead initially but soon was a convert:

"I was surprised," he said. "I watched one episode. 'Cause someone had said, 'You've gotta watch this.' And I remember the indie comic. 'Cause I still have my comic company. And I remember the indie comic. And I started watching it, and then I watched another episode, and I [was like], 'Oh, I've gotta see all these back episodes.' [Laughs] It's a great show."

Some advice to Danzig: wait until you get up to season three, then you'll question whether you should keep watching or not. And for the most part, the answer is no.

Danzig isn't the only metal icon being employed by The Walking Dead. Scott Ian of Anthrax recently filmed a cameo as a walker.
