Spookshow Baby! Rob Zombie Cannibalizes Detroit by Adam O’Connor
The thing about Rob Zombie that many people seem not to understand is that – aside from having sold upwards of 15 million albums as a living dead rock star of epic proportion over the past quarter-century and helmed numerous films successfully – he’s really just a dude. Granted, his legal surname actually is Zombie, and yes, he utilizes every ghoulish trick, antic and mind-blowing visual and aural stunt imaginable during his live permormances – certainly providing one of the most incredibly dynamic and entertaining live shows of any modern musician (more…)
The Twins of Evil tour is in full swing.

The Rochester City Paper chats with Rob Zombie about all his different projects and the current tour. Enjoy!
ZOMBIE-FIED! by Frank DeBlase
Rob Zombie’s brutal creativity is spread equally over his music and films. Both aspects of his career bleed with a visceral cult verve and classic B-movie horror. Zombie’s work is over the top. Whether rocking the stage with his trademark metal/industrial kerrang or getting his slasher ya-ya’s out on film, one look, one listen and you know it’s Zombie. (more…)
Arkansas Times contributor Aaron Sarlo chatted with Rob Zombie on the phone recently to discuss his tour, the forthcoming new album and more. Rob Zombie, along with his Twin of Evil Marilyn Manson, will be heading to Arkansas on Saturday (6 Oct).
Rob Zombie talks tour, new album by Aaron Sarlo

Whatever makes you comfortable. (more…)

Rob Zombie promises epic theatrics in upcoming Topeka show By Mike Krings
It’s hard work being this evil.
Veteran rocker and horror filmmaker Rob Zombie has bounced back and forth between recording, touring and making movies for 20 years now, finding his own brand of success in two endeavors that have each burned out more than a few creative minds. (more…)
On October 1 the Twins of Evil hit Salt Lake City for another show of sounds, sights and extremities. Before the show both artists sat down to chat with the Salt Lake Tribune to discuss their work, staging and more.
Brian Hugh Warner — better known as Marilyn Manson — is now 43, and many dismiss him as a musician past his expiration date.
But when Manson’s album “Born Villain” was released in May, it debuted at No. 10 on the Billboard album chart and broke iTunes’ Top 10 album lists in 22 countries.
Those numbers prove that Manson, who will headline the “Twins of Evil” tour with Rob Zombie on Monday, remains a commercial force. (more…)
“The only thing I ever really care about is animals — animal causes. I don’t really care about people that much, but animals I feel like they always need to be protected,” Zombie told Samaritanmag, while in Toronto promoting The Lords of Salem.
It’s not like the filmmaker hasn’t incorporated animal mutilation in his films. Let’s face it — the guy makes horror films. In his remake of Halloween, there is animal mutilation (fake, of course). But in The Lords of Salem, he uses the dog as an interesting device for the lead character, Heidi, played by his wife, Sheri Moon.
Check out this new interview from the Illinois Entertainer, Chicagoland’s Free Music Monthly Magazine. In it Rob speaks about the way heavy metal music and horror movies are overlooked by their peers.

Just call Rob Zombie the second coming of Rodney Dangerfield. The two differ drastically in appearance (Zombie prefers graphic tees and unruly bedhead to Dangerfield’s trademark white collared shirt and sloppy red tie), but both curse the establishment with the same mantra: “I don’t get no respect!” (more…)
Rob Zombie embarks on his co-headlining Twins of Evil tour with Marilyn Manson from tonight (September 28) in Arizona at the first Desert Uprising. But before he began the tour, Rob sat down with Loudwire Radio to chew the fat about the tour, his new movie The Lords of Salem and more.

Expo-bound Rob Zombie talks screen, stage by Bill Blankenship

My Roots: Rob Zombie by Leslie Michele Derrough
Rob Zombie is a no-bullshit visionary. While leading White Zombie on a gory-fun trail through the rock & roll hemisphere, he carved up electrifying stage productions and music videos filled with fluorescently vivid images of the macabre while playing grungily catchy tunes; something that he continues to do with his solo band. Throwing his hat into the movie making business in 2003 with House Of A 1000 Corpses, Zombie found himself in a whole new world with more challenges for his creative brain. (more…)

Rob Zombie recalls standing in his back yard on the phone with John 5, the guitarist in his rock band, humming ideas back and forth to get that perfect passage of music for a film involving a 300-year-old witches’ coven, Beelzebub and a blasphemous modern-day rock station. (more…)

Rob Zombie on Going for Broke With ‘Lords of Salem’ and Why Making a Third ‘Halloween’ Would Be “Masochistic” by Nigel M Smith
Rob Zombie impressed many (ourselves included) with his grisly and demented sophomore effort, “The Devil’s Rejects,” only to betray many admirers of that film with his tepid stab at the “Halloween” franchise. After helming the 2009 sequel to that reboot, new film “The Lords of Salem” (which world premiered in Toronto earlier this week in the Midnight Madness section) finds Zombie back in non-remake mode with a gonzo tale that proves the musician turned filmmaker has lost none of his mojo. (more…)

Revelation: Rob Zombie is a neat guy. And not just in that platinum selling/Grammy nominated/re-invented horror movies/upkeeps amazing dreadlocks kind of way. Rob Zombie is literally a neat guy. “I don’t like clutter,” he divulges during a recent phone call. In fact the house he shares with Sheri Moon, his wife and oft-featured actress in his slew of directorial curveballs, is “super sparse … I don’t like shit everywhere. I like being organized and super particular.”
Rob Zombie chose the Midnight Madness film screening at Toronto’s International Film Festival to premiere his latest movie The Lords of Salem. He speaks to Robert A. Mitchell of the official Midnight Madness blog about how the movie was made.
THE LORDS OF SALEM marks Rob Zombie’s first time at the Midnight Madness programme at the Toronto International Film Festival.

I have always believed Zombie is a consummate visual stylist. (more…)

Entitled Mondo Sex Head: A Conversation with Rob Zombie, KRUU-FM’s Mike Ragogna interviews Rob Zombie in an interview which appeared on The Huffington Post.
Mike Ragogna: Rob, how involved were you in overseeing your latest remix project, Mondo Sex Head? And how did you go about finding the right remixers?
Rob Zombie: Well, I do have a heavy hand in the albums that I’ve done. Luckily, when we’re making the remix albums-this is the third that I’ve done-I can have a much lighter hand. The way that I do things is to compile a master list of who does the best remixes of the moment. Then we farm out the songs and let the artists pick the songs that they could do the best job with-I obviously try to sway some of them in certain directions, then I give them some slight parameters about what I want, though, I don’t want to stifle what they do.
