  • This album changed everything for me. I first heard songs off of this in 1998 when Twisted Metal III came out(RZ was on the soundtrack). They still kick. It’s both very sad and very true that Rob Zombie dumped his former guitarist and bassist so he could go solo, replacing the name White Zombie with his name and the two previously mentioned talented musicians with two fools. Regardless, Hellbilly Deluxe delivers. Aside from all the filler tracks, lead-ins, and intros, the songs hit with a bullet train force of industrial rhythm, techno machinery, and power metal guitar. “Superbeast” has that MACK truck quality, with a cool solo and Zombie’s creepy voice transfers for the chorus and verses. “Dragula” is a dance club staple for being as incredibly rave-able as it is a mosher. “Living Dead Girl” is a pop-oriented number that falls a bit shy of the other songs, but it’s still good. “Demonoid Phenomenon” is nothing but a piledriver, “Spookshow Baby” mixes an Arabian-sounding guitar twang into the song to mix it up and “The Ballad Of Resurrection Joe…” makes another transition from quiet verses to a rocking, shocking, chorus. The crowning glory is “Meet The Creeper.” That song is perfect! All there is to it. Grab this album, Astro Creep 2K and Sinister Urge for creepy, monolithically heavy, fun, dance-able, mayhem!…
