Welcome back Rob Zombie,
This review is from: Hellbilly Deluxe 2 (Audio CD)
One thing a lot of metal bands seem to be doing lately is going from very Heavy Metal to Melodic and more toned down material. Pretty much what Rob Zombie did before he started directing films.
So I listened to this album with an open mind to see if I would be surprised or disappointed...
Straight away I hear the Rob Zombie we all know and love returning with his old school heavy metal style making me think ahhhhh ok so this might be interesting. Kicking off with the first track Sick bubblegum which I am already resisting the urge to hit the skip button. Still on edge I hope that the rest of the album would not disappoint, from What? To Burn every song had either my feet tapping or head nodding away
There is also a lot of guitar solos in this song which I haven't really noticed in his other songs so that makes a nice change
One thing I miss is the odd fast song as it was Super beast that got me into Rob Zombie and I guess I was hoping for similar tunes on this album although Werewolf Women of the SS delivered nicely
On the whole I am very happy with this album and don't regret getting it
