Yes time does fly. Educated Horses is now 11 years old.
The album which came out on March 28 2006 was the first to feature guitarist John 5 and featured four videos, including two animated videos for The Lords of Salem and American Witch featuring animation from David Hartman.
The album debuted at number 5 on the Billboard charts and the track The Lords of Salem was nominated for a Grammy for Best Hard Rock Performance of 2008.
Explaining the album title Rob said at the time; “It was a weird kind of phrase, like, that I remembered as something as a kid. You know, my parents, my grandparents, my aunts and uncles, the whole family, were involved in carnival business and, like, circus business, so as a kid, we would get dragged to these things, and we’d have to spend all this time there. And that was just one of the attractions I remember, what they would call the trained animals, you know, educated horses.”

“In the Age of the Consegrated Vampire, We All Get High” named in Loudwire’s 20 Best Rock songs of 2016
“In the Age of the Consegrated Vampire, We All Get High“, from Rob Zombie’s 2016 album The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser, has been named as the 7th best rock song of 2016 by Loudwire.
“Rob Zombie has a knack for that over-the-top, full throttle gore-infused rock and he scores again this year with “In the Age of the Consegrated Vampire, We All Get High.” Driving guitars, random inserted dialogue and pure Zombie aggression drive the song. The singer has made a career off of this style of music, and as he says in the song, “I’m wicked / So hideous / I’m morbid / Don’t fuck with this.” It definitely works well, so who are we to question.“
Loudwire have put together their definitive list of the “20 Best Rock Albums of 2016” and Rob Zombie’s latest offering, The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser has come 2nd.
“Rob Zombie has found the zone with his current band and they are embracing it for all that it’s worth with ‘The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser.’ Zombie goes deep with stellar cuts on this one, first finding his groove with the outrageous yet rocking “Well, Everybody’s F–king in a U.F.O.” This album is fun to listen to and to sing along to, with cuts like “In the Age of the Consecrated Vampire, We All Get High” and “Get Your Boots On! That’s the End of Rock and Roll” being perfect additions to his live show as well as his overall catalog. “The Hideous Exhibitions of a Dedicated Gore Whore,” “The Life and Times of a Teenage Rock God” and “Medication for the Melancholy” are also solid listens in what could be argued as Zombie’s most complete solo effort to date.”
