  • I borrow a lot of CD’s from my bud Eric and I was kind of worried when I popped this one in my CD player. I never cared for White Zombie and the fact that on the cover he looks like a cross between Charles Manson and a critter from a George Romero movie didn’t help. So, I was expecting something along the lines of Marilyn “Look at me, I’m GOTHIC!” Manson. Thankfully as the first track played my fears were put to rest. where as Marilyn goes out of his way to gross you out, Zombie heads in the opposite direction, tackling his songs with a kitschy, B-Movie/comic book kind of campiness that would make Glenn Danzig smile. Add to that musical style that splices techno with EXTREMELY heavy metal, throw in Zombie’s gravelly vocals and you’ve got a winning combo. (WARNING: Do not play “Superbeast” while driving, that guitar solo alone will make you want to break speed limits.)The only problem: It’s too short, clocking in at under 40 minutes. But heck, I’d buy it, if for no other reason, to run up to my religous zealot of an ex-stepmother, shove the cover in her face, and shout “NIENER NIENER NIENER!!”
