Rob Zombie recently told “Revolver” that he is channeling White Zombie on his forthcoming new album. He had the following to say about the opus, which he recently finished tracking with producer Bob Marlette (Black Sabbath, Alice Cooper):
“It would be really easy to grind out a traditional ‘Rob Zombie‘ record, but I didn’t want to do that because that’s boring. So I went back to the early days of White Zombie, took some of the wild and insane elements out of that band, and combined it with the skill level we’re at now.
White Zombie was writing stuff that barely made sense. It’s so weird, but it kinda worked. I wanted to bring back some of that oddness and make something really new. We’re making our best record ever. It’s the most alive, raw and crazy thing we’ve ever done.”
An early 2013 release date is being mapped out for the album.
