Rob Zombie on His New Record, New Movie, and Why Metal Shows Need Girls By Lauren Wise

Rob Zombie isn’t out to terrify you. He’s out to blow your mind. He holds a number of titles: director, artist, musician, actor, writer, lover, and freak show.

Rob Zombie on Pee-wee’s Playhouse, and how he’s not on tour to party and to fuck around By Tom Murphy

Rob Zombie originally came to prominence with his first band, White Zombie. With a penchant for campy horror imagery and music that was the perfect mutant blend of an industrial aesthetic with trashy metal and punk, White Zombie was one in a handful of bands that crossed the alternative-rock world and the metal world at a time when the former was going out of vogue.

Slipknots Sid Wilson to replace Jonathan Davis on Twins of Evil Tour

J-Devil (aka Korn’s frontman Jonathan Davis) will be replaced on the Twins of Evil tour with Slipknot’s Sid Wilson, after doctors ordered Davis to take time out for exhaustion.  The decision was announced in an official statement;

“JDevil will no longer be able to join Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson on their co-headlining Twins Of Evil Tour this October. Due to exhaustion from his recent eight week overseas tour with KORN, Jonathan’s doctors have ordered him to refrain from any travel and performing for the next few weeks while he recuperates. We got this from management: ‘Jonathan is really bummed right now and regrets having to disappoint anyone, especially his fans and his good friends Marilyn Manson and Rob.’ We’ll keep you updated, everyone expects he’ll be back on track soon.”

We wish him all the best in recovering and welcome Sid Wilson on the tour.

Glide Magazine interviews no-bullshit visionary Rob Zombie

Rob Zombie is one of the most hardworking artists out there – he can’t sit for long and twiddle his thumbs in case he gets bored.  In this interview with Glide Magazine, the director and singer, talks about making movies, making music and what really scares him.

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 hits the right spooky notes with Lords of Salem

Karen Bliss of Rolling Stone Magazine caught a moment or two with Rob Zombie to speak about the music of The Lords of Salem.  Enjoy!

A short sequence of spooky notes is as critical as any character in Rob Zombie’s latest directorial endeavor, The Lords of Salem. The witchy strain lies at the core of all that goes horribly wrong for Heidi Hawthorne, the radio DJ, dog lover and former drug addict played by Zombie’s wife, Sheri Moon Zombie.

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…)

The Lords of Salem gets a distributor

Rob Zombie fans have been waiting for this movie for a while.  The Lords of Salem which received its premiere last week in Toronto has been teasing the fans with Rob’s regular updates from filming and production, on both his Facebook and here at the official site.  Now release comes one step closer as Anchor Bay signed up to distribute the movie in the USA.

“I have always been a fan of the care and respect Anchor Bay has put into their genre titles,” said Zombie, whose first film was the cult 2003 fright flick “House of 1000 Corpses,” in a statement. “I can’t wait to work together to bring this bizarre, special movie to the masses.”

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.
