Hellbilly Deluxe 2 (Edited)
by Rob Zombie
Released: Feb 2010
Label: Roadrunner Records/Loud & Proud
A quarter-century into his career and by now as famous for making movies as noise, Zombie builds another aural haunted house. There's more boogie-fied slide guitar than usual -- most notably in the teen-lupine Alice Cooper homage "Werewolf, Baby!" and in the Cramps-sounding "What?," about cannibal men, jungle girls and wild bikinis. But mostly his fourth solo set is the headbanging industrial-doom stomp you'd expect, coagulated with old horror samples, belfry bells, tribal drum parts, "papa oom mow mows," and a classical fanfare closer that stretches past the nine-minute mark.
