Rob Zombie, née Robert Cummings, is a veteran shock rocker, `` King of the Monsters '', born in 1966 in the States. A worthy successor to the work of the idols of his youth - Ozzy Osbourne and Alice Cooper, Rob formed the White Zombie group in 1985, the sound of which compiled the thunderous energy of heavy metal, aggression of hard core, hammering precision of industrial and ... the `` iron '' rhythm of disco ... The Zombie lyrics were teeming with chilling stories about walking corpses, vampires, sacrificed virgins, etc., which was the result of Rob's fascination with classic horror films, anti-science fiction and in general all kinds of `` chernukha ''. The group got its name from the 1932 `` horror film '' filmed by the iconic White Lugosi and immediately gained a reputation as a Satanist. In addition to the original sound, Zombie also worked on the unique image of the group: `` branded '' T-shirts and outfits in general, cover design a la horror-comics and scenery for stage shows - everything was done by hand. However, the resounding recognition was long in coming: only after five `` independent '' releases, White Zombie's efforts were rewarded and the group signed a contract with a major label Geffen Records. Zombie's major debut was marked by the album '' La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1 '' (1992). The single `` Thunder Kiss' 65 '' won a Grammy and has sold over 2 million copies.

The next album, Astro-Creep: 2000 (1995), entered Top 10, staying in the hot 200 for 89 weeks. And again Grammy - for the single `` More Human Than Human ''. I could not help but fall under the charm of Zombies and MTV, which awarded the artist the Best Hard Rock Video award for the music video he directed for this song. The album itself went double platinum and was completely remixed by leading remixers in 1996 ('' Supersexy Swingin 'Sounds'' went '' gold ''). The group toured extensively and successfully.

Meanwhile, Rob Zombie was also carrying out some 'special' projects, for example, he recorded a duet with the idol of his youth Alice Cooper. The song `` The Hands of Death '' became the soundtrack to the famous TV series `` The X-Files ''. And in the equally famous film The Crow: City of Angels, another Zombie song, I'm Your Boogieman, sounded. While on the next tour, Rob began working with the creator of such famous MTV characters as Beavis and Butthead - Mike Judge - on the key scene of the film Beavis and Buthege Made America (where Beavis, having eaten mushrooms, plunges into a hallucinogenic hell). Here Zombie performed not only as a composer, but also as an artist-designer.

After this successful work, as well as the successfully directed psychedelic video I'm Your Boogieman, Rob was asked to write a script for the sequel to The Crow, which he did. Further - more: Howard Stern himself (the famous comedian) invited Zombies to sing with him, Stern, a duet on the title theme for the film '' Private Parts '' - '' The Great American Nightmare ''! It is not surprising that the film, like the soundtrack, thundered all over the world. After that, Rob decided that it was no longer fit for him to work in a group, and released his first solo album Hellbilly Deluxe under his own name (Rob Zombie). The recording, among other musicians, featured guitarist Danny Lohner (Nine Inch Nails), fellow White Zombie drummer John Tempesta, and family friend Tommy Lee (Motley Crue), produced by Scott Humphrey (Metallica, Motley Crue) and Rob himself.

The Zombie style remained the same, although it underwent some impact of techno-pop. And Rob sang all about the same - corpses, sinners, virgins, retribution ... but, fortunately, without the annoying seriousness that distinguished his follower Marilyn Manson. As a follow-up to this work, Zombie released The Sinister Urge in 2001. Zombie toured frequently with Korn, Limp Bizkit, Ice Cube, and Orgy, and was recently announced to support his godfather Ozzy Osbourne, who sang one of Zombie's songs on the 2001 album.
