Rob Zombie’s ‘Shock… Shock… Shock!!!': Unboxed
Some artists are "just about the music." Rob Zombie, however, is the type of guy who values his visual presentation as much as his songs. And that's totally apparent with his new box set, Shock...Shock...Shock!!!
The set includes 11 LPs, with several of the discs requiring two discs to include all of the songs. Hellbilly Deluxe, American Made Music to Strip By, The Sinister Urge, Educated Horses, Hellbilly Deluxe 2, Mondo Sex Head, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor and The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser albums will all be represented, as well as the live releases Zombie Live and Spookshow International Live. But the jewel in the crown for many fans will be the addition of Astro-Creep: 2000 Live, captured during a performance at Chicago's Riot Fest in 2016, when Zombie revisited one of White Zombie's biggest albums in its entirety with his current band (including guitarist John 5).
Loudwire's Social Media Specialist, Anthony Lauletta, was at that epic Rob Zombie show at Riot Fest, so we asked him to handle the unboxing honors for the below video. Appropriately, the box set contains more than music: there's a mask (which Anthony declinded to wear... does he know something we don't?), lithographs, a turntable mat and a cleaning cloth... presumably to wipe the blood and guts off of your sweet new LPs.
