Rob Zombie has been frightening a worldwide audience for over twenty-five years now; whether its with his band, White Zombie, his many solo albums and music videos, or his spine-tingling movies like House of 1000 Corpses or his Halloween remakes. Even with a successful career as a filmmaker, Rob Zombie continues to thrill fans on tour dates around the world with his unique brand of horror-themed groove metal. During tour dates in 2011, Zombie will be teaming up with possibly one of the scariest metal bands around, Slayer, to co-headline Hell on Earth tour dates.
Rob Zombie was born Robert Bartleh Cummings on January 12, 1965. He developed an interest in art and drawing in high school but, with his creativity hampered by the sleepy Massachusetts town, left for New York when he was 18. He enrolled in Parsons School of Design and there met Shauna Reynolds, better known as Sean Yseult. Sean was playing keyboards in a band with Ivan de Prume and, when their band broke up, Yseult and Zombie (who was going by Rob "Dirt" Straker) decided to start their own band. Later, in 1987, White Zombie released their first full-length album, Soul-Crusher. Reception of the album was mixed, with members of the punk community (including Kurt Cobain, Thurston Moore, and Iggy Pop) expressing a keen interest in the unique music.
By 1998, White Zombie had three more albums (two of which went platinum), and multiple Grammy nominations, had moved to LA, and developed a huge fan base. Rob Zombie also released his solo album, Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside The Spookshow International, that year. With the sensation of his solo album, White Zombie disbanded and Rob embarked on his solo career. Zombie followed the album's prosperity with the release of The Sinister Urge in 2001 which, despite experimenting with different musical styles, became a huge success and eventually went platinum.
Educated Horses was released in 2006 and more of Zombie's musical experimentation can be found on the album. Rob Zombie backed away from his trademark metal style in favor of a slightly softer glam rock sound on some of the record's tracks. The album's success rivaled that of Hellbilly Deluxe, reaching #5 on the Billboard 200. Rob Zombie's latest album, Hellbilly Deluxe 2: Noble Jackals, Penny Dreadfuls and the Systematic Dehumanization of Cool, was released in February 2010. While physical CD sales were lower than expected, digital sales did quite well, prompting Zombie to state that this will probably be one of his last actual CDs, although he will continue to release music.
Zombie is currently working on a new film, Lords of Salem, the soundtrack for which will be performed by his band, with plans to release a new album after the movie's release. In the meantime, fans can see Rob on his upcoming tour schedule, which includes 2011 tour dates on the Hell on Earth tour with Slayer and Exodus. The North American tour will only include twelve tour dates, with most of those located in Canada. To see if hell is coming to a town near you, check out the 2011 tour dates posted on Eventful.
