Overview

Following the belated surprise success of La Sexorcisto, Astro-Creep: 2000 carried the weight of high expectations, something that White Zombie was never familiar with before. Unsurprisingly, White Zombie plays it safe on Astro-Creep, never straying from their white-trash-on-acid metal. While it's undeniably campy, the band genuinely loves the trash they sing about, so they fit right into the tradition of tongue-in-cheek heavy metal bands from Alice Cooper to Kiss. Where those bands relied on songcraft beneath their shtick, White Zombie relies on a full-throttle roar. Borrowing such techniques as distorted vocals and drilling riffs from pseudo-industrial metal like Ministry, the band beefs up their basic sound, making it powerful enough to disguise the lack of solid song structures and memorable riffs. Sonically, Astro-Creep delivers the initial goods, yet it never develops into trash as substantial as "Thunder Kiss '65."

If you're looking for the best that White Zombie has to offer, look no further. Astrocreep 2000 pumps out ominous, yet thrashing heavy-metal riffs that keep you hooked. From the always popular More Human Than Human to the mystifying Blood, Milk, and Sky, this CD offers up eveything White Zombie is best known for. If you like hard-hitting, creepy, loud, gut-mashing rock, then you can't go wrong with Astrocreep 2000.

It's tragic that White Zombie never put a real album out after this one. This album picked up where La Sexoristo left off, and just kept getting better. This album had many more catchy riffs and infectious hooks than the prior, and even had a big hit single: More Human Than Human. Both of the Electric Heads are great, as is El Phantasmo &The Chicken Run Blastorama.
