Rob Zombie "Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Super Town" Song Review — 5 out of 5 stars
Tue, 12 Mar 2013 08:36:37
On first listen to "Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town", it sounds as if Rob Zombie is revving up that same engine that fueled the classic La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1. However, this isn't simply a retread or return to past glories for nostalgia's sake. Zombie's far too smart and creative for that. Instead, "Dead City Radio and the New Gods of Super Town" is the ultimate 21st century Zombie anthem.
John 5's guitars burn rubber from a ratcheting, raw riff into the sublimely scorching lead, while Ginger Fish and Piggy D.'s bass and drum assault bounces irresistibly. Zombie struts through the heavy instrumental madness with effusive charisma, screaming out one of his catchiest choruses in history.
Already, he's unleashed a bruiser on par with "Dragula" and "Black Sunshine". Now, he's going to revolutionize rock 'n' roll again with Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor on April 23.
