Pro-social Content

A stray nod to prayer.

Objectionable Content

Racy audio clips on "Foxy, Foxy" seem to be lifted from a porn movie or some other sexual encounter, giving obscure lyrics twisted erotic overtones. The plague of "17 Year Locust" talks of drug use, suicide and creeping insanity. In gothic detail, "American Witch" opens the disc by spinning a yarn of 20 witches sent to the gallows. "Lords of Salem" provides the second sonic bookend, closing things out by honoring the doomed coven ("God hates the lords of Salem ... No one can destroy them"). Other oppressive yet inscrutable cuts ("Let It All Bleed Out," "Scorpion Sleeps," "Death of It All") peddle darkness. The most violent song is "The Devil's Rejects," a homicidal quest viewed from the killer's perspective ("Blood is the rain ... head split and tongue tied/Watch the sun die when you're running out"). If that sounds like a Marilyn Manson throwback, it might be. For this grim disc, Zombie recruited Manson guitarist John 5.

Summary Advisory

The White Zombie frontman specializes in occult themes involving death and apocalyptic doom. Horses could be the soundtrack to a sick horror film—no surprise coming from the director of the gruesome cult flicks House of 1,000 Corpses and The Devil's Rejects.
