The Sinister Urge [2001]

Rob Zombie’s second solo album “The Sinister Urge” was released three years after his debut solo effort Hellbilly Deluxe.

The album title was borrowed from the Ed Wood movie of the same name released in 1961.

Although only one single was released – Demon Speeding– tracks from the album would appear on soundtracks for Mission: Impossible 2 and as promotional releases.

Two official videos were created, including for the track Never Gonna Stop (The Red Red Kroovy), which saw the band recreate A Clockwork Orange.

Zombie was able to call on several friends to appear on the album, including again Tommy Leeon drums and Slayer’s Kerry Kingon guitar. The biggest scope was securing vocals from Ozzy Osbournefor the track Iron Head. Speaking at the time in an interview with KNAC.com, Zombie said: “I thought that somehow the song didn’t seem special enough. Somehow I thought that the song wasn’t as good as it should be and I had been talking to Ozzy a lot and working on stuff for the tour and someone was like, ‘Why don’t you just get Ozzy to fucking do it?’ It was like, duh. Sometimes you don’ think of the obvious ideas.”

Demonoid Phenomenon
Regulate the flux and reflux

Bleed the masses and watch’em cry
Slumber like Houdini’s dog
Die alone out in the fog
Iron head- regenerate
Iron head-exterminate
Iron head-liberate and crucify you
What is my name

Laugh in your face and
Break because you don’t belong
Vent upon the brink
Appear another demi-god
Suddenly forever knows
What it takes and where it goes
Paint it black inside your head
I defy what you have said

8 Transylvanian Transmissions, Pt. 1 01:09
This idea is sufficiently plausible in an attempt to account
For the phenomenon the sickness and the sentence
Of blood. I could no longer strubble, every moment
Threatened to be the last – there was pain, dizziness and
Profuse bleeding at the pores, how is this possible
The transmission was transfusing
In a moment the sober eye of reason would detect a
Vibration in the flesh. Creeping, incoherent,
Bearing no mark of a human hand
9 Bring Her Down (To Crippletown) 03:59
I went out walking to Crippletown
My crutch hit the floor with a boney sound
Now all the girls go beep beep beep
How can I love when you’re so cheap
Turn me on, turn me on, turn me on
Don’t be long, Don’t be long, Don’t be long
Bring her down, Bring her down,
Bring her down, see the wonders around you baby
Now everybody gather in the square
To twist their fingers in my hair
They hang around like a serpentine
And try to speak like FrankensteinThe children come all dressed in black
One foot forward the other back
They splash around in a muddy hole
While everybody crying they got no soul
10 Scum of the Earth 02:55

11 House of 1000 Corpses 09:26
She got a corpse
Under her bed
He had her fun
But now he’s dead
Hear momma said
Come feed desire
Her brother said
Hey, throw her on the fire
This is the house
Come on in
This is the house
Built on sin
This is the house
Nobody lives
This is the house
You get what you give cut the flesh
And make it bleed
Fresh skin
Is what I need
I let it dry
Out in the wood
All your crying
Did no good, yeah
Now you’re lying
On the floor
Yeah, you can’t
Take anymore
The devil’s laughing
In your face
Give me another taste, yeah
