Description

It is with no small amount of pride that Inside Out Music has the unique opportunity to announce its very first signing from a former communist country: Poland’s Riverside. Behind the Iron Curtain, over the past years, and especially in Poland, progressive music has very quietly (but surely) been growing in popularity and establishing itself as a real scene. As a result, some very interesting and promising bands have begun to see the proverbial light-of-day. Enter Riverside, with their hyper-creative compositional and instrumental skills, they create very intense compact soundscapes that could remind one of Pink Floyd from the days-of-old. Their debut CD received rave reviews from the progressive rock community with many calling it ”the album of the year.” We expect no less from Second Life Syndrome.

  • Couldn’t even believe it was out already. I’m a die hard white zombie/rob zombie fan and have been awaiting this release for some time. It was an unexpected surprise when I spotted this for sale earlier today. I’ve been checking Rob’s website monthly to see a release date.

    Anyways basically it’s worth it more as a collectors item, but had a little buyers remorse after. I’ve owned the earlier white zombie records and trust me they’re not something you’re going to listen to for pleasure. Some songs sound like a garage band playing for the first time. The rest of the cd is some soundtrack songs mixed with the rest of the white zombie collection.

    DVD is pretty solid.

    I guess I personally had higher expectations.

  • You’re probably thinking whether the White Zombie boxset is really worth getting or not. Well I’ll tell you right now that it’s definitely worth it, you get 4 discs of music including a couple of rare songs like the Sabbath cover Children of the Grave and Ratfinks, Suicide Tanks & Cannibal Girls which are both sound fantastic. And you also get a completely awesome DVD containing all their music videos (the one on the past, present and future CD had a few missing videos for some reason) and some great live footage which includes the show at Donnington 95. For many fans this box-set was long overdue. White Zombie were for me one of the greatest bands the early 90’s metal scene and their break up shortly after releasing Astro-Creep 2000 and the remix CD made me wonder if anyone could fill that void. It was a real shame when that happened cause I really wanted to see where they were going to head off to next but unfortunately it didn’t happen. There is no doubt that Astro-Creep 2000 was an undisputed classic 90’s industrial metal album with songs like Electric Head pt.1, More Human Than Human, Supercharger Heaven and Phantasmo and the Chicken-Run Blast-O-Rama.

    This set comprises all Studio recordings, including the Soul Crusher & Make Them All Die Slowly albums that have been very difficult to track down for those of us without unlimited funds, so its great to have them all complied here together. I’ll be honest some of the earlier stuff before they became a mainstream industrial metal group was kind of bad and slightly dodgy, Make Them Die was pretty good though despite the low production (Disaster Blaster being the highlight). I usually like to read about the band and most other box sets I own all have a biography or the bands history, some of these are fantastic and talk about studio sessions for each album, such as the Sabbath Black Box and you get a real insight into what made the band tick and learn more about these talented and amazing bands. Although Let Sleeping Corpses Lie does have a booklet, its just full of sepia tone photos and little else other than a track listing, which I was a little disappointed with. Still all things considered though, this is still a fantastic set and well worth the money, check it out if you’re a die hard White/Rob Zombie fan.

  • This box set is the grand finale for everything White Zombie. Overall I’m very pleased. Granted there isn’t much along the road of extras, but White Zombie is a band that makes music and that’s what you get… the music. Considering the restraints Rob Zombie had while making this, no communication with the rest of the band and little time, I thought it was an exceptional effort. For those who are complaining about the included material this article, http://www.ultimate-guitar.com/interviews/interviews/rob_zombie_i_find_it_distracting_to_hear_my_own_music.html , should explain much. All in all, a great effort from Rob Zombie and an amazing buy for White Zombie fans.

  • Preface: I am a HUGE White Zombie fan, and have been looking forward to this box set for years. As far as the quality of the music contained herein, this set gets a 5 out of 5.

    1. Omissions. The set contains no remixes, which is neither surprising nor disappointing, since White Zombie’s remixes were done by outside personel and, quite honestly, were never as good as the original recordings. Strangely, though, “Black Friday” and “Dead or Alive” are omitted from this set (maybe because they were only on the cassette version of “Gods on Voodoo Moon”?). Songs like “Star Slammer” which were previously recorded but never before released are also AWOL on the box set. What a shame.

    2. Redundancy. La Sexorcisto and Astro Creep are contained, in their entirety, on Discs 3 and 4 (respectively). Anyone who’s a big enough White Zombie fan to shell out this kind of money for the box set already has the two albums, both of which are owned by millions of fans across the world. Rob knows this, but included them anyway. Why? So he could justify a higher price tag? I feel like a moron for paying for something I already own.

    3. Aesthetics. The packaging is very, very disappointing. Back in the day, Geffen declined to front the money to give Astro Creep the kind of elaborate booklet that Rob wanted. So, what did he do? He spent a big chunk of change out of his own pocket to give the album the kind of treatment it deserved. Sadly, Rob seems to have gotten miserly in his old age. The set’s packaging is in the form of a compressed fold-out digipack. The booklet (which is in the form of a standard CD booklet, not an actual book, as I had hoped) is uninteresting and offers neither liner notes nor lyrics. This really caught me by surprised, as this is what usually makes box sets distinct from the rest of a band’s catalogue. Rob really didn’t come through on this.

    In summary:
    1. It’s incomplete.
    2. It has stuff you already have.
    3. It doesn’t look as nice as it could have.
    BUT!
    4. The music is great, and the quality of all the old pre-Sexorcisto tracks has been cleaned up a little bit.

    Oh, and the DVD is good too, although the videos for Boogieman and One curiously omit clips from the films in which they were featured (licensing issues, perhaps?).

    All in all, the good outweighs the bad. Buy it.

  • Man, I hate to admit it, but I am disappointed with Let Sleeping Corpses Lie.

    Ironically, I wasn’t expecting much in terms of content and am pleased to have a partial “one-stop shop” for White Zombie’s records (all studio records are here with soundtrack and tribute album one-offs, but remix eps, for example, are nowhere to be found). I knew what I was getting, track-wise, and cannot complain. For the newbie, much of this stuff has been hard to come by (fans in the 90s could still get Make Them Die Slowly in record stores but the first albums were generally findable only via bootlegs (albeit decent ones)). The noisy scumrock left many of the neophytes turned on by La Sexorcisto-Devil Music Vol. 1, frankly, turned off and many were perfectly happy to accept the Geffen debut as an alternative starting point. These early tracks sound great here and are cool to have in “official form.”

    What I am so sorely diappointed with is the package. The “fondlability and fetishability factor,” to misquote Frank Zappa. White Zombie has been almost as much about the image and artwork as the music and the buyer is left swindled. I recall a radio interview in 1995 or so promoting Astro Creep: 2000 — Songs of Love, Destruction, and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head in which Rob spoke about how much the band enjoyed giving the fans a complete package that included stickers, posters, etc. Here we get a small, sepia digipak with some artwork, all in the same tone, none in color, no lyrics, no notes from the band members or critics, no complete historical articles, no original cover art, NOTHING. We get something nice to load into iTunes and then file onto the shelf. I was so looking forward to tearing this sucker open and spending an afternoon reading through its book – now I guess I’ll re-watch The Devil’s Rejects (Unrated Widescreen Edition) instead.

    With most bands, substance trumps style every time. With a band like White Zombie, they’re intertwined. And while nice to have all the tunes (and a killer DVD) in one place, this cannot help but feel like a product rushed to market for Christmas that forgot a lot about its fanbase in the process.
