Rob Zombie’s solo debut album Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside the Spookshow International, came out 17 years ago (August 25, 1998). It debuted at number 5 in the Billboard charts, and reached Platinum status just three months later. It carried on the vein of sounds fans were familiar with from the White Zombie years, and its mix of metal and industrial sounds meant it garnered new fans as well as placated loyal fans.
Speaking to Loudwire, Zombie says; “I think people could tell I was having a good time making this music and playing around a little with this different technology and these different sounds,” he said. “As long as I’m having fun with what I’m doing then it will probably come through in the music.”
The album has sold over 3 million units and continues to be a fan favorite with tracks such as “Dragula“, “Living Dead Girl” and “Superbeast” still being played in Zombie’s live set. It also received a re-release in 2005 with new artwork, and was the basis for the successful remix album American Made Music to Strip By.

Occasionally, one of them makes the big time and becomes a star in their own right.”

Rob Zombie finishes working on his next studio album, “I can easily say this is my favorite album yet… no joke”
Rob Zombie has finally wrapped up his latest studio album, the as yet untitled follow-up to 2013’s Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor. The studio has been mixed by Zombie and Zeuss, and Rob is very pleased with the way the new album sounds. Says Zombie; “The new studio album is done! The last mixes were put to bed and the studio is back in storage. Can’t give you much info yet… but I can easily say this is my favorite album yet… no joke. Yeah I know every fucking asshole says that. But it is seriously our heaviest most fuck up musical monster to date. One song entitled “Well, Everybody’s Fucking In a UFO” is sure to be an instant Zombie classic! Not since Hellbilly Deluxe have I spent this long putting an album together. It was worth it. Our man Zeuss did and awesome job producing and has helped us construct the perfect next step after Venomous Rat.”
Keep locked onto robzombie.com for more details.”
