Bill Bodkin and Ann Hale of Pop-Break.com, dig through the ditches with the heavy metal icon and horror movie director Rob Zombie
Rob Zombie is the man — he’s been able to create a horrifyingly enchanting persona and style and successfully spread it across numerous artistic mediums. Since the 90s he’s been creating thunderously macabre heavy metal anthems with his band White Zombie and on his own. Since the early 2000s he’s taken his love for horror movies and made it a career — delivering modern blood soaked horror classics like The Devil’s Rejects, re-interpreting the classic Halloween series and even making ho-hum procedural crime drama like CSI: Miami extremely interesting.
And as we speak, Zombie is splitting time putting the finishing touches on his new film, The Lords Of Salem while concurrently gearing up to record a new record and hitting the road to tour with Megadeth.
Pop-Break’s Bill Bodkin and Ann Hale teamed up to speak with the musician and director about his new record, his new tour and his new movie. But before we jump into the interview our writers felt a strong need (a sinister urge perhaps?) to talk about how the art of Rob Zombie has impacted their pop culture lives.
