Astro-Creep: 2000 – Songs of Love, Destruction and Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head
“Astro-Creep: 2000 – Songs Of Love, Destruction and other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head” is the fourth and final studio album from White Zombie.
Following the success of their previous album La Sexorcisto, the album took 6 months to write and record. It was also the first and only White Zombie album to feature drummer John Tempesta who replaced Ivan DePrume. Tempesta would join Rob Zombie as he embarked on his solo career.
Heavier and more industrial than La Sexorcisto, the album saw influences from writer Philip K. Dick, with the track More Human Than Human referencing the motto of the Tyrell Company in the movie Blade Runner (based on Dick’s short story Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?)
Speaking about the album, Zombie said at the time: “I was never that happy with it [La Sexorcisto]. In some respects, it was probably the best thing we could do at the time under the circumstances; and that this record was exactly what we wanted it to sound like.”
Astro-Creep: 2000 is White Zombie’s best-selling album, selling over 2,600,000 copies in the US and certified Double Platinum by the RIAA.
