On August 25, 1998, Rob Zombie unleashed his album: Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside Spookshow International on the world.

The album was his first since deciding to embark on a solo career and debuted at no.5 on the Billboard album charts. It reached Platinum status just three months later and to date has sold over three million units in the US.

It featured guest appearances from Charlie Clouser (Saw/NINs), Danny Lohner (NINs) and Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee.

Hellbilly Deluxe 17 years

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.
