Make Them Die Slowly [1989]

Make Them Die Slowly” is the second studio album from White Zombie and was released by Caroline Records who reissued their first studio album “Soul Crusher“.

The album introduced new guitarist John Ricci who replaced Tom “Five” Guay. It was his only appearance on a White Zombie album as he left the band after being diagnosed with carpal tunnel syndrome.

For the first time, Rob Zombie drops the Rob Strakermoniker.

The album again utilizes the movie samples that would become signature to White Zombie and Rob Zombie’s releases. The album opens with a line from Night Of The Living Dead: “the killers are eating the flesh of the people they murdered“.

Speaking about the album at the time, and the change from a “noise band” to what people perceived more as a “metal band” Rob said; “I don’t know if you’d really call it ‘metal’ but there’s a lot more focus to it. The songs are more like….songs…. And now I get to say ‘let’s rock!’ a lot too. That’s important.”

Title Length Lyrics Listen*
1 Demonspeed 05:21
Raw deal institution
Wreck that I call myself
City slam penetration
Play it like a fool
Need born invention
Puts the war in your face
Payback time execution
Demon speed crackdown
Compute the kill
Blackmarket war
Damnation sings
Brain waves roar
Escape the pain
In a pit of power
Deep sixer sleep
Like a devil flower
Raw deal institution
Wreck that I call myself
City slam penetration
Play it like a fool
Need born invention
Puts the war in your face
Payback time execution
Demon speed crackdown
Give the world
Blood syphony
How low is your
False sypathy
Justice claws
A death horizon
Freak-zone flesh
Maggot man rising
I am your satisfaction
I am your memory
I am your suffocation
I am your sanity
Demon speed too fast for you
Cry in the night
So lonely
Obsession
The only
Money talks
You listen
Hungry game
Submission
Demon speed too fast for you
Innocent
The big time
Avenging
My mind
Generate
A smooth gain
Live in fear
With no pain
Demon speed too fast for you
Fade away in the silence
Speed racer baby is
Lost in love
I see a blood sucker soul
Come on baby push to shove
Squeeze a drop of mercy
Place yourself outside of life
I see a blood sucker soul
Come on baby push to shove
2 Disaster Blaster 06:03
Conquest heat master
Skin crack move faster
Doomwatch got open eyes
Perversion never lies
Disaster blaster
Disaster blaster
Creature of destruction
Laughing dead corruption
Challenge to survive
Love butcher alive
Disaster blaster
Disaster blaster
Take a journey into fear
Demon warp invasion
Thunder wheels rolling
Crush 1000 faces
Sworn to fun and loyal to none
When the beast is clever
The best it ain’t over
Walk alone on borrowed time
And kiss tomorrow goodbye
Sworn to fun and loyal to none
Lost inside a human zoo
Edge of life wants you
Got a grip on the wire
But my brain don’t get no higher
Disaster blaster
Disaster blaster
Leather skin move to the beat
Beastman insulated heat
Looking for a sleeping dream
Hop-head body scream
In the morning
Ready to learn
What’s happening
And who’s gonna burn
Get on your feet
Time to die
On the floor
Machines don’t die
Stealing the world
Walking away
Poison mind
Everyday
3 Murderworld 06:10
Summer of love
What a waste now
Earth magic strikes out
A million dollar monster mind
In search of the devil’s garden
Make them die
Make them die
Make them die
Make them die
In this land there’s no return
Everybody licensed to thrill
A killer alien selling point
Invasion can be fun
Martian war death machine
Turns into a jungle hell
Hang ’em up in the trees
See how hard love bites
Make them die
Make them die
Make them die
Make them die
Shot down
Watch the skies
U.F.O. suicide
I say believe in me
Trip on mars
And get free
Interpretation
Wiped away
No more to say
Time unleashes death
Mid-air plague
Brain damaged rage
Come and get me
Death star reaches
Out to crush you
Idealistic super-hero
Hell squad kingdom
Gets to jammin’
Somewhere in time
Rock the house down
This is murderworld buddy
Not just another traffic jam
No credit card gonna get you home
Jewels in the night don’t
Shine no more
This murderworld brother
Nobody loves you anymore
Out of sight and out of mind
What is it what it is
This is murderworld sister
A deep throating little baby-face
Horror of the body is alright
Come on baby and get it on
4 Revenge 04:22
Live to die
For a heart jam
Fight to love a
Super bitch
Drive her roots
Straight to hell
Atomic ass 99
Another cosmic monster
Spits his teeth
In your eye
More dead than alive
Revenge is better than
Love
Revenge is better than
Love
Frankenstein
Was built for you
But he must be
Destroyed
Cut him down yeah
In his prime
And let the party
Begin
Not much of a face
tombstone laughing
More dead than alive
Revenge is better than
Love
Revenge is better than
LoveRevenge
Revenge
Revenge
Revenge
They sharpened their war
Pure fear as a weapon
Brilliance through
Centuries
Time rolls on and on and
The river of life
Drowning everyone but me
Turn my back
And disappear
Chill is in my gut
Turns me loose
Head splits like wood
Mind collide confession
Rambling remember when
Sweat meant something
More dead than alive
Revenge is better than Love
Revenge is better than Love
5 Acid Flesh 05:30
Great white eyes
Bleed away the
Trembling sound
No more time
Body spasm deep
And passing
Acid flesh
Human river stepping
Stones of
Love and death
A living legend’s legacy yeah!
Hustler of the dead
Revolution steals the world
And turns the sky to red
Home sweet hellhole to the
Last man on earth
See what the face of evil
Is truely worth yeah!
Turn your eyes
To the sky
A corpse of blue
Night is time
Growing strong
With every moment
Acid flesh
Chaos pulsing
In my viens yeah!
Hell house temptation
Walk on to salvation
Cold steel-pain trust
Hot blood-forever lust
Raw horror make cheap thrills
Twitch the nerve get your fill
Razor make clean cut
River red so what
Gut twisting holiday
Skin dripping pay to play
Stain is blood
Without a doubt
Godslayer action
Eye to fist
Fist to eye
Dig the war anyway
Killing time
Killing time
Bending cracks up
In my mind
Bite down
Bite down
Money burns
In my hands
I can’t seem to
Get enough
Hammerhead
Says to you
Love is the one
Thing money can buy
Bite down
Bite down
Down
Down
6 Power Hungry 05:12
Out of the past
Machines of crime
Brute force side-split
Live and let dieDealing I am
Triumph blood is
Thicker water
Getting
Power hungry
Track down weak flesh
Some like it hot
High roll get down
Fist face get down
Dull years
Strait jacket baby
Wired from 10 years
Of pain
Bending the rules
Seems more likely
Than going insane
Sweating time
In the hot house
Toyland broken yea
Eating away
All fascination
Got the power
To get away
Steel crush destroy
Call of the soul
Money mindstorm
Run for your life
Dealing I am
Triumph blood is
Thicker water
Getting
Power hungry
Future alive
Robot city
Take what I need
Young stuff
Get down
Taking refuge
In a breakdown

Takedown
Forming a theme
Staple characters
Flying god-head
Non-conforming
Precision
No direction
Collision
Accelerating
Evolution
Dinosaur
Revolution
Slaughter house
Blood slamming
Emotional
Bitch scamming
Impossible

7 Godslayer 07:12
Listen
To the horror of satan sea
Listen
To the guns of superman
Well I say
Return to a platinum stranger
Hooked on
The enemy under your skin
Panic
Despite the heart of stone
Doomsday
For all the beautiful people
Hey I know what I want now
And it’s right in front of me
And I know how to get it
The good things in life are
Always free
Landscape of greed and hate
It keeps me going
Victim of what’s inside you
Outside of truth
Only hurts now when I laugh
Live by fire
Forever is a long long time
War is hell
Hanging man twitches in agony
Death rattle shakes itself free
Raise you hand to the mountain
Drown in your own bloody fountain
Shadows become longer the sun
Burns down
Don’t need to look I am found
Lucky
If you still remember your name
Freedom
Visions of a showdown
Blood is
Boiling in the midnight sun
Sizzling
Like the enemy under your skin
