Rob Zombie, 'Mondo Sex Head' -- Album Review


Rob Zombie has recently released his new remix album, 'Mondo Sex Head'. The album includes remixes from some top producers in the dubstep and electronic scene, including Ki:Theory, Photek, and JDevil (DJ side-project of Jonathan Davis [KoRn]). The remix album comes just as Rob Zombie is set to begin touring with Marilyn Manson and JDevil on "The Twins Of Evil Tour."

'Mondo Sex Head' features many of Rob Zombie's greatest songs, including (but not limited to) 'Thunder Kiss '65', 'Dragula', and 'P**** Liquor'. The impressive aspect of 'Mondo Sex Head' is that the original sound from the rock songs blends together flawlessly with the EDM sound. The remixes have an eerie feel to them that will keep the original fans, and branch out and create new fans all at once.

No stranger to a remix album (having done one back in 1999), Rob Zombie knows exactly how to cross two sounds and turn it into something spectacular. The rock sound is more prevalent in some of the tracks, whereas the electronic sound stands out in others. Perfect example: 'Thunder Kiss '65 (J Devil Number Of The Beast Remix)' maintains the rock sound of the original song by using the guitar riff from the original track. On the flip side, songs like 'Living Dead Girl (Photek Remix)' and 'Lords Of Salem (Das Kapital Remix)' have the electronic vibe, which is even more apparent with the lengthy electronic beats and breakdowns.

Though the remix album comes at an ideal time for a new Rob Zombie album, a new studio album is currently in the works. After the completion of Zombie's new film, 'The Lords Of Salem', and the conclusion of his upcoming tour, the band will be heading back into the studio. "The Twins Of Evil Tour" featuring Rob Zombie and Marilyn Manson kicks off on September 28th at Desert Uprising in Phoenix, AZ. Check out the official track list for 'Mondo Sex Head' below:
