The bassist of Danzig and Samhain, the original and unofficial photographer for the Misfits – Eerie Von has seen a lot. Lucky for us, he has the photos to back up his journeys through the annals of punk and metal, and they’ve now been published in Eerie’s new book Misery Obscura, released yesterday through Dark Horse. His photos span from 1981-2006, and are supplemented with plenty of road warrior stories. With so much speculation on a band like the Misfits – thinking of what they are today, compared to the good ol’ days – Misery Obscura is pretty much the perfect visual supplement to document what made the Misfits legendary.
