Rob Zombie: Hellbilly Delux

Rob Zombie launched his mega-successful solo career 20 years ago with Hellbilly Deluxe: 13 Tales Of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside The Spookshow International (1998).

Zombie disbanded White Zombie shortly after his album’s release.

Musically, Hellbilly Deluxe is much like his previous band’s material, though possibly a little more industrial and electronic influenced.

Creatively, Rob Zombie wrote all the lyrics and co-wrote all the music with the album’s producer, Scott Humphrey, making him completely in charge of his solo direction.

Rob also directed music videos for every song on Hellbilly Deluxe.

Songs from this platinum debut remain in Zombie’s live show all these years later, especially Dragula, Superbeast, and Living Dead Girl.

As a solo artist and movie director, Rob Zombie allows all of us metalheads and horror movie fanatics to collectively celebrate Halloween year ’round.
