Hellbilly Deluxe

EW's GRADE
C+

Details Lead Performance: Rob Zombie; Genre: Metal

On Rob Zombie's first solo album Hellbilly Deluxe, White Zombie's dreadlocked frontman has concocted a veritable blood feast of hair-raising guitars, spine-tingling drum loops, and a cast of ghoulish characters who could be refugees from an old William Castle horror flick. It's all a little creepy, to be sure, but Zombie's cartoonish antics are too over-the-top to really get under your skin. C+
