  ROB ZOMBIE 'MONDO SEX HEAD' COVER ART REVEALED
3rd July 2012

rob zombie mondo sex head



On August 6th 2012, Spinefarm Records 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 film maker 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 1996s '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, Spinefarm'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' and '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.

Rob Zombie's 'Mondo Sex Head' finds its creator returning to claim his legacy in the burgeoning world of electronic dance music. By bringing together music and film, rock and dance, arena mosh pits and club dance floors, Rob Zombie is proving a cultural phenomenon, with a fan base that is constantly growing.


WACKEN WINTER NIGHTS IS HEAVY METAL WONDERLAND

wacken

Wacken Winter Nights 2018 takes place between February 23rd and 25th 2018 and the great news is that you can now experience a full-on, top class German Metal Festival easily and affordably.

It only takes an hour to fly to Hamburg from London and we've had longer journeys than that within the capital and they were certainly more expensive than the £33 air ticket that just appeared in our 'flights to Wacken Winter Nights' search.

Wacken Winter Nights is organised by the same team who are responsible for the world's greatest Metal festival, Wacken-Open-Air and the 2018 bill includes Skyclad, Orphaned Land, Elvenking, Finntroll, Grave Digger, Aeverium, Comes Vagantes, Coppelius, Corvus Corax, Die Pressgëng, Elvellon, Heimataerde, Hell-O-Matic, Ignis Fatuu, Ingrimm, Irdorath, Johnny Deathshadow, Krayenzeit, Letzte Instanz, Mr Hurley und die Pulveraffen, Pampatut, Pat Razket, Schandmaul, Sündenrausch, The Aberlour's, The Moon And The Nightspirit, Torfrock, Visions Of Atlantis, Vroudenspil, Wind Rose and more.



Besides this rich billing of superb Metal bands, there is so much more to see in the festival area including the medieval market and also the walking acts and jugglers you will meet at the theme worlds, including Robert Blake, three-time World Cup winner of street magic.

We just priced up the whole four day trip with hotels, flights, shuttles and festival tickets for less than £300 and we don't think you will get a better value festival than that, anywhere.
