White Zombie had everything going for them. They were a band that pretty much threw the whole Horror Movie/50's Dragster magazine/tattoo-parlor-come-to-life image in everyone's face, and guess what? Everyone loved it! "More Human than Human" did not help drive "Astro Creep:2000" to double platinum status (I'm pretty sure it's gone at least triple since then) all on its own. White Zombie was just a kooky camp of kids that lived for cheap thrills, horror movies(you're going to hear a lot of this in the review), and whatnots. Their music was a genius combo of Sludge Metal, Doom, some semi-Thrash influences with a flavor of Disco's up-beat Pop sensibilities. Add into the factor of the most brilliant(and sometimes heavy) usage of Sci-Fi and Horror movie audio samples and you definitely have a new Frankenstein-like monster brings a new definition to the saying 'WHAM! BAM! Thank-you mam!'
Rob Zombie was at the top of his game as far as writing lyrics and arranging the music to fit his voice(he lost this with his sub-par solo material, which disappointed me as a long-time WZ fan). He knows his limits and doesn't see the usage to over-step those boundaries. Next to Rob's genius is bassist Sean Yseult. Any male fan of White Zombie knows how much of a mythical goddess Sean Yseult, golden curly locks and all, was in our early days of puberty, but none the less a rather excellent bassist and laying down a thick wall of extra 'crunch' to WZ's sound.Read more ›
Sure, a lot of water has flown in the river since then, loads of crossover bands released their music and even more metal bands tried, most unsuccessfully, to copy Zombie's music. Even when Rob Zombie went solo he didn't come close to reaching the stunning metal assault of this album.
White Zombie were incredibly daft when they released Astro Creep. Incorporating electronic beats and effects, some of which were downright techno was not exactly what the average metalhead was willing to swallow. But the blending of all the elements in a masterful way produced a mix that was instantaneously addictive. It got you banging along without a second thought. Actually, if this album wont get you moving i hardly see what will.
The reason i consider this to be among the very best metal releases of all time is because of its boldness, its ferocity and its surreal grooviness. It's no accident that ten years later it sounds as fresh as ever and were it to be released today it would still make for a massive and a very influential rock album.
Sometimes i think that White Zombie's masterpiece was in a way "lost" in the wave of grunge releases back then, especially when i consider that yes it didnt sell bad, but at the same time it still remains undiscovered -mysteriously so- by quite some music buffs even among the metal scene itself.Read more ›
This album is why White Zombie will always be my favorite band. La Sexorcisto was really f'in cool in it's own way. But this album is insane?!!?!?!? HAVE YOU LISTENED TO SUPERCHARGER HEAVEN? Each song is hard, every single one...even Blood Milk and Sky which sounds like a Hippie mixed metal jumablaya.
This is by far the best weight lifting album out there. Each song gets you pumped up and rearing to kick the crap out of any little emo beitch that gets in your way. It is better than any of Zombie's other attempts...but the songs are so awesome..that they even sounded good on Supersexy Swingin' Sounds all techno'd up.
It's a shame as someone before me wrote...that this album didn't get more attention than it did. If it had come out now...it would turn the tide of music from Rap's favor back into hard rocks. Unfortunately music like this cannot be found these days thanks to whiny bitches like Green Day and Blink 182 and all those other 'singin-about-my-girlfriend-who-cheated-on-me-with-the-cooler-guy' bands.
This album is 100% whoopass and NO ONE will be disappointed listening to it. Go out and get it now...and stop accepting the crappy new rock music that has been coming out. We are entitled to much much more...and this album is proof.
