On August 25, 1998, Rob Zombie unleashed his album: Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside Spookshow International on the world.
The album was his first since deciding to embark on a solo career and debuted at no.5 on the Billboard album charts. It reached Platinum status just three months later and to date has sold over three million units in the US.
It featured guest appearances from Charlie Clouser (Saw/NINs), Danny Lohner (NINs) and Motley Crue’s Tommy Lee.
