ROB ZOMBIE: ‘Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown’ Video Released

The official video for “Dead City Radio And The New Gods Of Supertown”, the first single from Rob Zombie‘s eagerly awaited new album, “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, can be seen below. Zombie himself directed the clip, which is described by the rocker as “pretty fucking cool.’ He adds: “For all of you hoping for an old-school, weirdo-style Zombie video… well, you are gonna get it. Big time!”

“Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor” will be released on April 23 on Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Ume. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette, who has previously worked with everyone from BLACK SABBATH and ALICE COOPER to WILSON PHILLIPS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD.

Asked what the story is behing the album’s title, Rob told Revolver magazine: “There’s no real story behind it. I just thought of it one day. With every album I’ve ever made, we’ll get it basically one hundred percent done and everyone will go, ‘OK, what’s the title?’ And I’m like, ‘I don’t know what the fuckin’ title is yet. It hasn’t hit me.’ And then one day I’ll just blurt out, ‘La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1!’ or ‘Hellbilly Deluxe!’ It’s the same with this one. I have it written down somewhere, but I don’t remember doing it.”

He added: “Truthfully, the whole record was conceived as a concept album. But I’m not really selling it that way. I was getting obsessed watching things like ‘Tommy’, ‘The Wall’, ‘Quadrophenia’, where you have a movie to go with the album and it’s a whole big concept. So I thought I’d write this album with that in mind: That maybe one day — it could be a year, it could be 10 years — I could turn the concept of this record into a movie. That being said, nothing about the concept of the record will make any sense to anyone until it’s a movie. The band doesn’t even know the storyline. No one does, except me. But I won’t discuss it because it’ll all make sense someday. Or it won’t. [laughs] lt doesn’t matter. The songs work fine even if you don’t know the concept.”

Regarding his decision to include a a heavy-duty cover of GRAND FUNK RAILROAD‘s “We’re An American Band” on “Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor”, Rob said: “I’ve never recorded a cover song as a solo artist, and I only recorded a few with WHITE ZOMBIE [KISS‘God Of Thunder’, BLACK SABBATH‘s ‘Children Of The Grave’ and KC AND THE SUNSHINE BAND‘s ‘I’m Your Boogie Man’]. But you always wanna add new songs into your live show, so [Zombie’s guitarist] John 5 and I would always sit in the back of the bus listening to stuff we could cover, but it was always like, ‘Nah, that one’s not right.’ Cover songs are tricky. You gotta find just the right one. ‘We’re An American Band’ hit us because it just felt so much like our life. We’re a quintessential American band — everything that’s right or wrong in Americana in one band. It wasn’t like we were trying to say anything deep or meaningful. [laughs] It was just like, ‘Yeah, we’re in a rock band. Fuck you — it’s awesome.'”

Zombie told The Pulse Of Radio what goals he set for himself in making the new album. “I wanted someone to hear it and go, ‘Wow, I haven’t heard that before,'” he said. “I wanted it to be just different. We really went out of our way with the sounds, so every song has a very different sound, a very different guitar sound, drum sound, just everything, where the sound, the actual sound becomes very important. You know, after all these years you want to still try to feel that you can break through new, creative areas in your own mind, and that’s really what we’re just trying to do, you know.”

TOXIC HOLOCAUST: Revolver Magazine Streams From The Ashes Of Nuclear Destruction In Its Entirety

Mammoth Anthology Out TODAY!

In honor of its release today, Revolver Magazine is hosting a stream of TOXIC HOLOCAUST’s From The Ashes Of Nuclear Destruction in its entirety! The monolithic 22-track anthology compiles over a decade’s worth of TOXIC HOLOCAUST rarities into one maniacal compilation of hostile bliss. Amassing the band’s many contributions to various comps and vinyl-only splits with the likes of Municipal Waste, Midnight and others, alongside demo versions of timeless TOXIC classics,From The Ashes Of Nuclear Destruction is a historic romp through the history of one of today’s most revered punk metal deviants.

Said Stereokiller of the offering, “If I was a diehard thrash fan, I’d have this album framed on my wall, another copy spinning on the record player, and a third copy in my arms, while I’m clutching it close and waiting for the inevitable apocalypse that TOXIC HOLOCAUST is preaching so fiercely.” Adds Metal Temple, “This historic look at the many facets of the band is the perfect introduction for those not initiated with TOXIC HOLOCAUST yet. There is example after example … that shows why TOXIC HOLOCAUST is the clear leader of the modern day thrash movement. They capture the essence, attitude and vibe of the legendary bands that created one of the most important genres of metal.”

Check out From The Ashes Of Nuclear Destruction at THIS LOCATION.

TOXIC HOLOCAUST is currently in the studio working on the as-yet-untitled follow-up to their 2011 Conjure And Command full-length. Praised for its “nuclear reactive riffage and Repo Man punk attitude,” by Revolver and commended for its “tar-thick riffage, staggering breakdowns, and a corroded dose of self-loathing,” by The Onion’s A.V. Club, Conjure And Command continues to reap hails from fans and critics globally. As an added bonus, the band closed the year with the honor of having the song “Bitch” rear its sonic apocalyptic menace in an episode of high-rated FX drama series Sons Of Anarchy (season 5; episode 11).

TOXIC HOLOCAUST mutated into existence in 1999, when Joel Grind merged his love for classic punk and metal into his ideal band. Like his influences – Bathory, Venom, English Dogs, Possessed, Broken Bones – TOXIC HOLOCAUST offers up blazing riffs, gravel-throated vocals, and a deadly fixation on the evil in man and a post-apocalyptic world wrapped in a DIY attitude.

From The Ashes Of Nuclear Destruction is available now. Order your copy HERE. And don’t forget to check out the band’s new lyric video for “Agony of the Damned” HERE!

BUTCHER BABIES: New Video Interview Posted Online

On February 15, Stefanie Heminger of “Stefanie’s Rock Show” conducted an interview with BUTCHER BABIES when the band played in Modesto, California as the support act for MARILYN MANSON. You can now watch the chat below.

BUTCHER BABIES recently signed a deal with Century Media Records. The band’s full-length debut is scheduled for a summer release.

Hailing from Los Angeles, the BUTCHER BABIES have emerged as one of the biggest draws on the Sunset Strip, their incendiary blend of heavy metal and horror-inspired theatrics inciting crowds worldwide.

Fronted by Carla Harvey and Heidi Shepherd — named two of the “Hottest Women In Rock” by Revolver magazine — the blood-splattered band left its mark on the United Kingdom in June 2012, appearing on the Download festival and supporting ANTHRAX in Cardiff. They returned to America last fall as direct support for OTEP.

When asked by Revolver magazine why the BUTCHER BABIES refer to themselves as “slut metal” and what the hell “slut metal” exactly is, Shepherd said, “We can’t go balls out — so we go tits out! When girls are perceived as sexual or outspoken, they get labeled sluts, but we embrace those qualities and bring them to our music as well. BUTCHER BABIES is true slut metal: We’re doing what we want, how we want.”

On the topic of BUTCHER BABIES‘ goals, Harvey told Revolver, “To bring slut metal to the masses — duh! In all seriousness, we feel like we are just touching on what we are capable of, and we want to continue to grow, get our music out there, and get on the road! There are so many repressed people out there that need to see a show like ours. Hopefully they will take home with them the message that they are able to do everything they want to do regardless of who they are told they are supposed to be.”
