After what seems like an eternity to fans, but is more along the lines of three years, Rob Zombie is finally releasing his sixth solo album titled The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser which is scheduled for release on April 29, 2016 and produced by Chris “Zeuss” Harris. Rob Motherf***ing Zombie is back and this is his best album yet. Joining him are John 5 (guitar), Piggy D (bass) and Ginger Fish (drummer) and they have put together what Zombie classifies as “seriously, the most f***ed up musical monster piece to date, and while it has taken so much time to put together, it was worth it.” After listening to the album a dozen times, we would have to agree.
With the first single off the album Well, Everybody’s F***ing In A UFO already being made into a music video/movie that has been receiving rave reviews since it’s debut on January 27th, Zombie has also filmed three other music videos including one for track three called The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God and has promised that each song will have its own music video or movie to go along with it. So, for those who are fans of not only his music but his films as well, consider this a gift from Zombie himself.
The first track titled The Last Of The Demon Defeated starts out with the usual intensity that Zombie’s albums begin with as the build up to a 12 song climax begins. With a slow and sexy groove, track two, Satanic Cyanide! The Killer Rocks On! floats from a more mellow sound into Zombie’s distinctive vocals and ending with the haunting sound of a men’s choir. There is most definitely a story starting here and each song seems to be another chapter in this astronomical album. Track three, The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God is the first song on the record that brings us back to some of Zombie’s older songs “and all the freaks will come out to worship me” once they hear this. Chanting the chorus is one thing people won’t be able to control themselves from. Then, there is Well, Everybody’s F***ing In A UFO with it’s impeccable timing, beats and memorable lyrics that you won’t want to miss a single part of. This song is incredibly enjoyable on many levels. The eerie Spanish guitar and footsteps in track four called A Hearse Overturns with The Coffin Bursting Open is not only a mesmerizing instrumental piece to the album but it is a perfect break before the pace picks back up with songs like The Hideous Exhibitions Of A Dedicated Gore Whore with its monster movie organ riff and Medication For The Melancholy being the part of the story that speeds everything up into a time warp monster madness frenzy that all Zombie fans love. Super-Doom-Hex Hloom Part One is an instrumental trip you won’t want to come down from with a psychedelic scale, it is very colorful, very nostalgic and very cosmic. In The Bone Pile is reminiscent of his How To Make A Monster Remix from the American Made Music To Strip By album.
There isn’t one song on The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser that will be skipped. Many times, you buy an album and only like a few of the songs, but this album is one that will be played from beginning to end every time. John 5, Piggy D and Ginger Fish all exude a perfect force to Zombie’s world. For an artist who can continuously put out such memorable and infectious records time and time again, Zombie has outdone himself once again.
