Jesus Frankenstein kicked things off in gloriously fun fashion, massive screens around the stage firing off retro-horror imagery, a multi-limbed skeletal structure looming ominously over the crowd in front of a gigantic iron man structure, before Rob Zombie was suddenly roaming the stage, appearing like a long-dead hobo sent back from the underworld by Lucifer himself to whip the audience back into shape.

The Lords of Salem had its US Premiere at the SXSW Festival in Austin Texas last night (March 11). The film is due for full release on April 19 2013, distributed by Anchor Bay Films. In this latest review, Complex.com give a 7 out of 10 rating for what they call “his most ambitious and befuddling work yet—befuddling in positive ways comparable to the least comprehensible, yet no less enthralling and delightfully appalling, films from, say, Alejandro Jodorowsky and Dario Argento“.

Tonight the Twins of Evil will conclude their spectacular tour which has entertained crowds from the US to Europe over the past 2 and a bit months. Meanwhile, here is an extract of the review by rockfreaks.net, for the Valby Hallen, Valby, DEN, 6 December show.
In the case of Rob Zombie, I just don’t know what to expect from the man. His previous appearance in Denmark took place in 1995 – and that was with White Zombie, so my frame of reference is extremely limited. (more…)

Here’s a review from the show in Stockholm, by Music and Festival Reviews. Enjoy
Rob Zombie…did everything right this evening. From opener “Jesus Frankenstein” to the encore “Dragula”, he showed everybody how a true professional works an arena. Zombie’s stage rap was both funny and crowd pleasing. (more…)
Well it’s certainly been a ride so far the European leg of the Twins of Evil tour. Thursday night the spectacular show arrived in the home of Metal – Birmingham, UK. This is home to Ozzy, Sabbath, Judas Priest and more. The magic was already there and the Twins of Evil blew the crowd away. Read this review extract from Bloodguts.co.uk
As soon as the final curtain drops, up pops another, this time with a large print of King Kong grasping Faye Ray and its instantly apparent that the next act is a film buff and as the lights go down, the chants of Zombie! Zombie! Zombie! are near deafening. Robots, porn and splashes of distressing horror, ladies and gentlemen, Rob Zombie is back! (more…)
Manchester is known in the UK as the home of stalwarts such as Oasis and the infamous The Haçienda but on Wednesday it became the home – for one night – of evil – Twins of Evil style.
QRO Magazine reviewed the show and you can read the extract here and see images from the show by photographer Ian Pickles.
If Manson’s set verged on the over serious the same cannot be said of his partner in wickedness on the night, the gloriously over-the-top Rob Zombie. Having revitalized the Halloween franchise, Zombie now divides his time between music and filmmaking, but whichever he’s doing he seems to give it one hundred percent, and his set featured every horror trope in the playbook. (more…)

Zombie and Manson Twins of Evil Tour by Jeff Resta
You knew with Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson co-headlining the Twins of Evil Tour on Halloween night was going to be so wickedly awesome, but this show was mind-blowing. Often times when two top billing bands “co-headline” there is usually a noticeable difference in staging, lighting and even sound giving you the feeling that there is still a headliner! Not here.

The Hartford Courant reviews the Mohegan Sun show for the ‘Twins Of Evil’ Tour.

At what point does it become okay for an artist to wear a shirt with their own name emblazoned on it? Do they need to be an international metal star? A renowned director? Or is it more the mentality of not caring, like one big middle finger saying “Yeah, my shirt says ‘Rob Motherf****n Zombie,’ and I don’t care” (it literally did).
It seems likely to be the last, but let’s face it. Rob Zombie, like his ‘Twin Of Evil’ Marilyn Manson, have carefully crafted stage personas. Horror metal theatrics were at their finest at Mohegan Sun for their co-headlining tour. Rotating for the top bill, Saturday night had Manson opening and Zombie on the top slot. (more…)

What better way to close out the concert season at one of the most often top ranked music venues in the country than with a chilly October night featuring two of the most chilling and thematic acts touring this year. Veteran shock rocker Marilyn Manson paired up with horror aficionado Rob Zombie to bring a stunning, emphatic close to the concert season at DTE Energy Music Theatre on Friday October 12th…..with terror master Rob Zombie storming forth for his set from a giant mechanical creature, harking back to the days when metal bands put on a true kick ass stage show.
