ROB ZOMBIE ANNOUNCES NEW REMIX ALBUM 'MONDO SEX HEAD'...

Featuring Rob Zombie Favorites Remixed By Some Of Today’s Groundbreaking DJS On August 6, 2012, Universal Music will release Rob Zombie’s Mondo Sex Head, featuring new and unique remixes of Rob Zombie classics by some of today’s top DJs, including KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis, Photek, the Bloody Beetroots, Drumcorps and Ki:Theory.

'Mondo Sex Head' was curated and executive produced by Jason Bentley, Music Director at L.A.’s influential KCRW and Electronic Dance Music expert. Richard Bishop, co-executive producer of RE:GENERATION music project and documentary film, supervised the project.Each track was hand selected by Rob Zombie who road-tested many of the songs in his car, driving the L.A. streets.

Throughout his career, iconic music artist and auteur filmmaker Rob Zombie has continuously challenged audiences as he stretches the boundaries of music, film and publishing. Zombie, who has sold over fifteen million albums worldwide and has earned seven Grammy® nominations, is no stranger to repurposing his work, cross-fertilizing his fan base and generally pushing the limits of modern-day art. Over the years he has worked with outside DJs, remixers and producers starting with the 1992 remix of White Zombie’s first-ever, MTV-fueled hit, “Thunder Kiss ’65.”

“I like the idea of taking songs and reconfiguring them,” says Zombie about the album, who is taking an alternative approach in the digital retail space. The album will be preceded by two separate, digital-only EPs, with tracks taken from Mondo Sex Head and exclusive bonus tracks. Rob Zombie’s sound and style have always lent themselves to the dance and DJ culture, and he has previously released two remix albums—including 1996’s Supersexy Swingin Sounds, which featured songs from White Zombie’s previous albums as re-envisioned by the Dust Brothers, John Fryer, P.M. Dawn, Mike “Hitman” Wilson and Praga Khan, and others. Another collaborator on that album, Charlie Clouser, evolved into the band’s producer. American Made Music to Strip By came out in 1999, featuring remixes from Zombie’s ground-breaking Hellbilly Deluxe by Rammstein, Oliver Adams, DJ Lethal, Nine Inch Nails’ Chris Vrenna and Clouser.

With dubstep and rock rapidly banging heads together, Universal Music’s Mondo Sex Head couldn’t arrive at a better time, featuring remixes from all corners of dance music by the likes of KoRn’s Jonathan “JDevil” Davis (“Thunder Kiss ‘65”), Photek (“Living Dead Girl”), Document One (“Let It All Bleed Out”), Ki:Theory (“Foxy Foxy” & “Pussy Liquor”), Big Black Delta (“More Human Than Human”), ††† aka Chino of Deftones (“Dragula”), Das Kapital (“Lords of Salem”), Drumcorps (“Never Gonna Stop”), former Glitch Mob member Kraddy (“Superbeast”) and the Bloody Beetroots (“Burn”), among others. Zombie credits the idea for the album to a conversation with his manager, Andy Gould, who told him he was constantly hearing DJs incorporate samples of Zombie’s music into their performance sets

Kobra And The Lotus Announce Debut Self-Titled Album

news feature

KOBRA AND THE LOTUS – the five-piece group fronted by powerful vocalist Kobra Paige – will release their debut, self-titled album on August 6th 2012 via Spinefarm Records.

Produced by Kevin Churko (whose previous credits include both Five Finger Death Punch & Ozzy Osbourne), this 10-track outing has an intentionally grand-scale dynamic, revelling in the glories of the genre and making its mark as arena rather than garage rock; precisely delivered music, still heavy with emotion.

Commenting on the record, songwriter & no-holds-barred performer Kobra divulged…

“Some of the songs do have more specific meanings – for example, ‘Heaven’s Veins’ is about addiction, ‘Calm Before the Storm’ is about children born into troubled situations, ‘pearls in the ashes’, and ‘50 Shades Of Evil’ is about greed, about the constant desire for more… but, by and large, the theme is one of hope, of finding a way through dark situations…

“I do have broad musical tastes, but by choice I’m a heavy metal fan, and I’m truly excited with the album we’ve just finished. It’s rooted in the great history of the music, the escapism and the larger than life imagery, which is something I’m very comfortable with, but it’s for a new generation too, and it’s delivered 100 per cent from the heart!

Rammstein send Metal Hammer a thank you note...

 

 

Rammstein send Metal Hammer a thank you note...

So the Rammstein boys won Best Live Band at this year’s epic Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards, and they’ve just emailed us a nice little thank you message for all of their fans! Cheers, lads!

“Vielen Dank to Metal Hammer and to the readers of the magazine for this tremendous accolade. We’d love to have been there to collect the award, but rest assured, we will be returning to the UK. Metal Hammer has been a great supporter of Rammstein over the years, and that has meant a lot to us. To be honest, we weren’t sure if the UK would truly accept the band, but we now have wonderful friends and fans over there, and the last UK dates have been some of our favourite shows. Oh, and don’t play with fire… it can be dangerous!”
