CD Review: Rob Zombie Remixes His Songs And Hits The Road With Manson

Rob Zombie has been a very busy man of late. He has a brand new horror movie entitled “The Lords Of Salem.” He just released his second remix album, “Mondo Sex Head” through Geffen Records and he is currently on tour with Marilyn Manson as part of the “Twins Of Evil” tour. While Manson is promoting his new disc “Born Villain,” on this tour, Rob Zombie has packed his show with hits from his four solo albums and songs from his earlier band, White Zombie.

The new remix album features many songs that Zombie fans will know, but have never heard in this way before. JDevil handles the first remix on the album with an all-out rave version of one of Zombie’s biggest hits, “Thunder Kiss ’65.” Document One’s remix of “Let It All Bleed Out” sound like a horror movie within itself as the sound effects find their way to the front of the mix. Zombie’s heavy metal hit “More Human Than Is Human” sounds like shell of its former self as the song drags, but the album finds its punch on “Pussy Liquor” and “Lords Of Salem.” Zombie’s guitarist John 5 lends some extra guitar work to the Kraddy remix of “Superbeast” which gives the song some extra juice before finishing the album with club beat filled “Mars Needs Women.”

The Twins of Evil tour is rolling into Connecticut on October 20 with a show at the Mohegan Sun arena. The tour wraps up its U.S. dates on Halloween before heading over to Europe to finish out the year.
