4.0 out of 5 stars hard hitting horror rock that remains essential, 11 July 2006
This review is from: Astro Creep - 2000: Songs of Love,... (Audio CD)
white zombie were a band that could be deemed the first fantasy band and what i mean by that is that they wrote songs that werent influenced by real life but by horror movies and horrific ideas,this is the last proper white zombie album and it has to be said that this is a masterpiece of dark riffs,funky bass work and groove riden songs,all racing along with rob zombies unique voice,this is very much a horror album that wishes to haunt your dreams and because its so catchy and fist punchingly anthemic then they more or less suceed in that.Its horror rock or indeed alternative rock at its fiercest,but the riffs are all catchy and there is a downtuned dirty scuzzy feel to it as well.

The album opens with the ultra catchy electric head part 1 which draws you in for the kill,and from there classic after classic falls out of your speakers and goes for your throat,such as super charger heaven,real soultionnumber 9,creature of the wheel,i zombie and the belting and hypnotic album closer blood,milk and sky which although 11 minutes long has some class moments.

Its an album that influenced so many,granted they may have taken many ideas from the true monsters 'the misfits' but i have no doubt that murderdolls and wednesday 13 and many others have drawn alot from white zombie,so in conclusion this album will sit very comfortably in your collection,just sleep with one eye open

"We were only in our early twenties and we were having a lot of fun with it.
We just thought of writing horror music at the beginning.
I remember we thought, 'Let's just write some scary music.' "
