The Samhain Boxed Set was released in 2000, more than 13 years after Samhain effectively ceased recording and performing. The set's five CDs and one VHS tape compile nearly all of the band's original catalogue, newly remastered from the original master tapes, and a wealth of previously unreleased material, the latter of which includes a live CD and a VHS video cassette of live footage.
Initium" puts to shame any black metal or death metal album. After listening to this album, everything else considered "evil" will sound silly. Danzig's voice never sounded better than on "Initium" and it kept evolving on the following Samhain albums. His voice easily defies any production value that could take away from it. His howls are just frightening as a wolf after a fresh kill.
