    @hmobius: What do you think of Hellbilly Deluxe 2? I personally like it, and consider it's dirty, horror pop feel a welcome change from his last few albums. It just seems...better. I don't find myself turning it off halfway through like i did Educated Horses. I was actually listening to it thinking it sounded like La Sexorcisto from the early White Zombie stuff a bit.

    Wu-Tang/Beatles Mash-Up - Enter the Magical Mystery Chamber
    Eluvietie - Evocation I: The Arcane Dominion
    Four Tet - There is Love in You
    Gatsby's American Dream - "Saint Nicholas" (Single song, and yes, it's a Christmas song.)
    Big Sugar - 500 Pounds
    Doomtree - Doomtree
    Hacride - Lazarus

    @Internaut: Given HB1 was released 12 years ago, I'm amazed how similar HB2 sounds, which is no bad thing. RZ's music has always been about soundtracking the Cirque du Freak, like he did with White Zombie before going solo. I need another few listens but the glee in his oily horror metal is there and it sounds good to me so far. John5 makes a good writing partner. What's the Four Tet like?
    • CommentTimeFeb 3rd 2010
    I've been listening to the new Rob Zombie and enjoying it as well. I dug HBD 1, but I was pretty bored by the rest until Educated Horses when John 5 joined. He seems to have expanded things a bit from the standard downtuned chug that the middle stuff was stuck in. The new one feels like it continues that creativity while still delivering the sleaze and gore we expect.

    Other stuff:
    Pig Destroyer - PITY
    Motorhead - the first three albums
    Eyehategod - Dopesick
    Ramones - the first few
    Leatherface - Mush
    The Virus - Nowhere to Hide
    Zero Boys - Vicious Circle
    Danzig - III
    Alice in Chains - Dirt
    Bruce Springsteen - Darkness of the Edge of Town & Born To Run

    Right now, Gravenhurst's Fires in Distant Buildings. Such pretty music.

    Don't know what will be next; looking for a similar level of anger and hostility to the music of Eyehategod and Today is the Day with about the same pace and deliberation of Godflesh's Streetcleaner, but something with more crunch and slightly more crushing. Any recommendations?

    Around 6 years late, but finally caught up with Run The Road. Have become just a tad obsessed with grime. And frustrated at how few inroads it has made into the mainstream.
