BY Rick Florino 

As always, Rob Zombie is a rather busy man. He just dropped his novel, The Lords of SalemThe film of the same name hits theaters April 19, and his brand new solo album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor is in stores April 23—each entity stands on its own, though.

The book dives deep into the mythos of The Lords of Salem, expanding the world of the film into graphic, gory detail. It’s a horror fan’s delight. Meanwhile, the movie itself stands out as a psychological head trip unlike any of his previous work. Of course, there’s also the record which proves to hit just as hard as, dare we say it,Hellbilly Deluxe. In this exclusive interview with PureVolume, Rob Zombie talks to Rick Florino about all of the above and more.

PureVolume: Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor really is your strongest and heaviest record since Hellbilly Deluxe.

Rob Zombie: I’m glad you said that. That’s what we were thinking when we made it. You kind of make it in vacuum so you’re never sure if anyone else is going to agree. Luckily, that seems to be the consensus so far.
