Artist Direct gives Rob Zombie “Thunder Kiss ’65” (J Devil Number of the Beast Remix) 5 stars
From Artist Direct’s Rick Florino:
The track is the first taste of Rob Zombie‘s forthcoming remix record, Mondo Sex Ahead [Available August 7], and it’s devilishly delectable.
The new take begins with an eerie beat that could’ve been ripped from a classic horror flick score, and then it descends into a raging industrial banger tailor-made for the hottest club in hell. The robotically demonic “666” chant is a nice flourish, and J Devil amps up the song’s legendary riff by armoring it with acidic electro flourishes.
Zombie sounds as fierce as ever screaming along over J Devil’s deep, dark, and deadly production. It thrashes intensely, and J Devil once again proves why he’s the most innovative and inimitable artist in electronic dance music.
If he and Zombie did a whole record like this, it’d be an instant classic. For now, enjoy this mind-blowing remix of a classic.
Available now on iTunes!
