Overview

Like all of his projects, the deluxe edition of Hellbilly Deluxe reflects Rob Zombie's sizable ego. He conceived of and directed everything on the bonus DVD -- it includes videos for each track, many of them unreleased -- and also drew the 24-page booklet, which depicts his usual dark gallery of ghouls, half-dressed damsels in distress, clown-crushing robots, and relatives of Ed Gein. It all adds up to more content for the twisted Astrocreep universe, the mythology Zombie's been actualizing since 1992 and La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1. But even as his vision threatens to outpace his actual music -- this is Zombie's second retrospective in two years -- his shtick is still devilishly fun. How could it not be? He throws in everything a growing boy needs -- scantily clad bad girls, B-movie mad scientists, midnight creepy-crawlies, and a grand vision of hell that includes serpents, impaled warriors, and topless cavewomen astride bloodthirsty dinosaurs. And then there's the music. Typified by the Hellbilly hits "Dragula" and "Living Dead Girl" and the equally strong "Superbeast" and "Meet the Creeper," Zombie's tunes are an exuberant mess of industrial, metal, and grindhouse devotion. Melody might sometimes fail him, and he's a slave to repetition. But there's always a monstrous guitar riff ready to save the day, or more colorful interpretation of NIN and Ministry's overbearing nihilism. As dark as Zombie's music gets, his mood is always closer to a Saturday afternoon television matinee than the empty violence of a slasher film.
