THE SINISTER URGE
ALBUM GEFFEN, UNIVERSAL RELEASE: NOVEMBER 19, 2001 REVIEW: NOVEMBER 19, 2001
It’s kind of hard to describe the music of Mr Zombie. The closest description would sound something like "groovy industrial horror rock with a lot of samplings". Another way of giving an idea of how "The Sinister Urge" sounds, would be by simply stating "like White Zombie". Because that’s how it is - "The Sinister Urge" takes off from the landing pad of "Astrocreep 2000". The same goes for Rob Zombie's first solo endeavour, "Hellbilly Deluxe"; it heads in almost the same direction.
So is this artistically challenging?
And that about sums it up. Rob Zombie and "The Sinister Urge" is all about having fun. Not the 50:s kind of "good clean wholesome fun", but more a sort of scary, dirty horror comic kind. If you like Rammstein, Alice Cooper, or, obviously White Zombie, you are going to enjoy "The Sinister Urge". Groove to "Never Gonna Stop", listen to the scary keyboards in "Bring Her Down (to Crippletown)", rock with "Demon Speeding" or "Dead Girl Superstar", or be scared by the serial killeresque Nick Cave-like "House of 1000 Corpses".
Lock your doors and windows, be very, very afraid and get down and boogie.
