Rob Zombie has released the track ‘The Eternal Struggles Of The Howling Man’, taken from his upcoming album ‘The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy’, due out 12 March 2021 via Nuclear Blast.
Words: Paul Monkhouse
There are no half measures with Rob Zombie and for that we can be eternally grateful. With his usual flair for showmanship, this new track is Grindhouse Rock ‘n’ Roll par excellence, full of 70’s scuzz but put through the biggest set of speakers you have ever seen.
As with Zombie’s previous work, there is an unhinged genius at play here, the multiple layers each displaying a glinting, but equally disturbing, facet that both chills and thrills.
Like the nightmarish ghost train in a broken down Mid-Western fun fair that just seems to have appeared from nowhere, you can not help but be drawn in, holding on for dear life as your mind screams warnings and asks if those ghoulish figures are mannequins or living and breathing beings about to tear you limb from limb.
Music should not be this darkly exciting, but when the Master of the Macabre is in town you have just to obey that siren call.
‘The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy’ is Rob Zombie’s seventh studio album and marks his first new album in nearly five years.
