FROM OUT OF THE DARKNESS, THE ZOMBIE DID CALL

For all future releases, I just may have to get somebody else to review Rob Zombie. He would really have to step on his dick to make me say anything bad about him, he's that damn good! Can you think of anyone else who could make Metal so danceable?

*UPDATE:

Look for Rob Zombie/White Zombie music on the following soundtracks:
BRAINSCAN, JUDGE DREDD, ESCAPE FROM L.A., THE CROW: City Of Angels, BEAVIS AND BUTTHEAD DO AMERICA,
THE MATRIX,
IDLE HANDS,
END OF DAYS

April 15: 1999
The CROW 3 project is cancelled as far as Rob Zombie's involvement with it is concerned. Perhaps the Owners of the Crow Movie Franchise thought they could make another one every bit as good as CROW 2. Catch the crappy series on UPN.

January 23, 2000
THE CROW 3 (THE CROW: SALVATION) was such a piece of shit that it wasn't worth the money to promote it. It gets quietly released to Video Rental Stores.

2001
Rob Zombie is dropped by Universal Pictures for his movie HOUSE OF 1000 CORPSES. He releases his new album THE SINISTER URGE. Movie release is slated for 2002.

2003
HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES is a hit at theaters and video rental. Zombie is lined up to make the sequel. Lions Gate films will back it.

2005
THE DEVIL's REJECTS continues and ends the saga of the Firefly family that started with HOUSE OF 1,000 CORPSES. Zombie moves on.

UPDATES

BILLY IDOL you say?

HA! You poor stupid fool! Don't make me laugh! Billy's VITAL IDOL was a remixed looping piece of shit!

MARYLIN MANSON's REMIX AND REPENT?

HA! Again! Those songs were good the first time and he didn't improve them. If anything, he homogenized them!

On the other hand, have you heard WHITE ZOMBIE'S SUPER SEXY SWINGING SOUNDS? Incredible! Not a false note in the entire thing (the less said about WHITE ZOMBIE: NIGHT CRAWLERS and it's remix by KMFDM's Sascha Konietzo, the better)!

Well, what about HELLBILLY DELUXE? The Rock Freakin' Zombie still walks among us! He stakes his territory in the genre he loves, horror, and becomes its musical master. The child's voice introducing the album goes right into SUPERBEAST,
"Hell yeah! I'm the one that you wanted /
Hell yeah! I'm your Superbeast!"

which in turn, shotguns right into DRAGULA and so on. The album never rests.

Between each song there is an audio trivia game of sound clips. I couldn't figure out what was his and what came from some damn movie I could barely remember

"Who is this irresistable creature who has an insatiable love for the dead?"

The CD booklet is good fun too. Done up like an old Monsters of Filmland magazine (Famous Monsters of Filmland artist Boris Gogol himself did the cover to this album!), the booklet is a hoot to flip through while blasting the tunes.

Song after song rocks the Rob Zombie way. If this was a tape I would have destroyed the thing by now from playing it so much. Rob is moving into movie writing and directing (The Crow 3*), and after he's done with his music career I can easily picture him as king of the TV horror hosts.

This album is outstanding and well deserves its five perplex skulls.
