Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown

Dig It! Rob Zombie is Back

Few people transcend their profession in a way Rob Zombie has. The shock rocker turned horror director has returned to the studio to release his latest solo effort; "Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor." The album channels that old school Zombie feel giving listeners flashbacks to White Zombie days. This new album hits a home run that will leave new and old Zombie fans wanting more.

The album opens with the totally fun "Teenage Nosferatu Pussy." This is one of those songs that would fit right in next to "Thunder Kiss 65." The lyrics are catchy and Rob's famous growl is in top form. The perfect way to open the album and prepare you for what is coming next.

The first single from the album comes next in "Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Supertown." This one tells the listener a story of the world this album is set in. Rob is set to have a new anthem for audiences to sing along with during his live shows. A great track that keeps the album rolling on an upswing.

"Revolution Revelation" keeps pace going fast and heavy. It must be mentioned, especially with this track how great the band sounds this time around. John 5 delivers some of his best guitar work to date. His heavy riffs are head and shoulders above many guitarists and you definitely see what the past few Marilyn Manson albums have been missing without him.

"Theme for the Rat Vendor" prepares you for the rest of the album and we get into the track with perhaps the most ridiculous song title ever released. "Ging Gang Gong De Do Gong De Laga Raga" is a smooth track with a dance feel to it. This track is destined to get people on their feet and shaking whatever they have. The definite toe-tapper of the album, Zombie keeps the party going all night.

"Rock and Roll (In a Black Hole) is a track that seems to be the listeners break. It isn't the heaviest of tracks and has an industrial vibe to it. Zombie's lyrics are on point and the bass line great. "Behond, the Pretty Filthy Creatures" may be the low point of the album. Not the best track, but on an album with so many high quality songs; being the weakest doesn't make it poor. The mix feels a bit off on it; but the song does still deliver on some levels.

"White Trash Freaks" is another track that John 5 just goes off on. His work stands out so much, that it forces this album to shine on his merit alone. Zombie delivers stellar vocal work that give a haunting, yet fun vibe. Which rolls us into a cover track of Grand Funk Railroad's "We're An American Band." A great cover that fits Zombie's style perfectly. Rob did a few covers back in his White Zombie days and this track stacks up really well to 'God of Thunder" or "Children of the Grave." It will be awesome if he chooses to add this to the setlist for upcoming concerts.

"Lucifer Rising" is one of the darker tracks on the album and the only other low point to me. The song is enjoyable, but it gets overshadowed by the tracks around it. The next track. "The Girl Who Loved the Monster" is a great song. It's fun, spooky, and overall terrific. Rob delivers another song that will get fans banging their heads and throwing up devil horns.

The final track wraps up the album nicely. "Trade in Your Guns for a Coffin" is a nice swan song to a great album. The track is heavy when it needs to be and the lyrics strike a great tone. Zombie usually ends his albums with a solid hit and this is no exception.

Overall, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor is a great outing from Rob Zombie. His band has never sounded better and he is at the top of his game once again. He blends his old school style with the new school funk which makes for a great experience. The listener is in for a treat. Don't miss this one. Go buy it now.
