Rob Zombie – The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser

Ghouls, goblins, witches, warlocks, vampires and every single creature of the night and shadows gather around, cause uncle Rob is here! With The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser the ever charismatic hillbilly voodoo master Rob Zombie and his band of miscreants are back to hit us with the most groovy, bluesy and catchy (industrial) heavy metal you can imagine. Get ready for a spooky party and grumble along with all the lyrics.

Starting with The Last Of The Demons Defeated it builds up in a very Rob Zombie way with heavy beats on the drums, guitars and Rob shouting ‘Electric Warlock Acid Witch”. This intro song tells you immediately all you need to know about this record, the all too well known (horror movie) samples, industrial additions, the impressive lead guitar by John 5 and groovy creepy vocals by Rob Zombie.

One of my early favorites is The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God that has some hooks that worked like an earworm on me. You hear him sing ‘All the Freaks are in Love With Me’ and I can imagine he’s not far off really. Right after comes Well, Everybody’s Fucking In A U.F.O. which is yet again incredibly catchy with a very Southern twang to it. Definitely check out the short film they made for the song!

With Medication For The Melancholy and  In The Age Of The Consegrated Vampire We All Get High we probably get the heaviest tracks on the whole release with the most industrial sound to it. I can imagine these songs causing the crowds going wild. Especially check the Elvis inspired music video for Get High. Just when you think they can’t crank up the party any more, they hit you with the heavily rock ‘n’ roll inspired Get Your Boots On! That’s The End of Rock And Roll. The song is so damn groovy you can’t stay still and has some really catchy hooks yet again. The use of some really well-known lyric pieces like ‘Gabba Gabba Hey’, ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’ and ‘Wham Bam Thank You Mam’ only adds to it getting stuck in your head. I simply couldn’t get enough of this one.

Closing this release they do with the way slower song Wurdalak. Being the longest song on the record, it has a very doomy atmosphere with tons of samples threaded through it. The outro of the song with just piano music and an ambient background is really a great way to close the record.

Rob Zombie delivered again. Catchy and groovy industrial metal that will most likely induce a party wherever it’s played. Did he do anything special or new here? No, not really. Do I care about that? No, not really! The music is just way too much fun… I am a bit curious what the result would be if he actually would dare to stray a bit off the path, cause I know how damn artistic he is. But for now I’m really satisfied by The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser. A very groovy 8/10.
