More than just a musician, rocker Rob Zombie is really a renaissance man in the entertainment industry. From music to movies, he really has done it all and has become a fixture in popular culture as a result.
His career began in the mid-1980s with the creation of the band White Zombie. The band is hard rock or heavy metal, but Rob Zombie has also been called "industrial metal," for his use of synthesizers and distorted vocals. While he found some success with the band, his great successes have come as a solo artist. In fact, he has received three Grammy Award nominations for Best Metal Performance.
The somewhat twisted mind of Zombie that is evident in his music also shines through in the choice of movies that he works on. He has directed several popular films include The Devil's Rejects, two Halloween movies, and House of 1000 Corpses. His films are known to be full of blood and gore, of course played to a great soundtrack of music. In this case, Zombie is able to combine his two loves. His movie Tyrannosaurus Rex will be out soon.
His latest album is Hellbilly Deluxe 2, which he has said will likely be his last physical album, given that most fans today download their music. This will also save Zombie and his label the costs associated with releasing actual compact discs. This kind of forward thinking will reward Zombie in the future.
In support of his latest album, Zombie went on the Hellbilly Deluxe 2 tour. After that it was planned that he would tour with another rock legend: Alice Cooper. Their tour was called the "Gruesome Twosome," named because they both have the reputation of being a little out of the ordinary and a little weird.
Zombie is going to be touring through the summer as part of the Mayhem Festival and if you want to get tickets to see this great heavy metal rocker in person, there are tickets available here on EventTicketDepot.
