Music metal rock White Zombie band picture (pic) and photo gallery, albums covers pictures.
Formed: 1985 in New York City, NY.
White Zombie was an American band named after the 1932 film White Zombie, which starred Bela Lugosi.
White Zombie was known for combining heavy-metal music with driving guitar riffs (as on "Super-Charger Heaven"), overlayed with lyrics heavily influenced by horror films and pseudo-Satanic imagery. Unlike other metal bands of the 1990s, White Zombie was almost exclusively a "fantasy" band, writing songs not about real life, but about surreal horror fantasies.
The group officially disbanded in 1998 shortly after the release of singer Rob Zombie's solo album Hellbilly Deluxe.
Founded by Rob Zombie, writer, vocalist, and graphic artist, after coming up with the band idea in 1985 while attending Pratt in his Junior year. Rob's girlfriend, Sean Yseult, was playing the farfisa in the band LIFE. Ena Kostabi owned a studio. They then recruited Peter Landau to play drums and began to write and record songs. White Zombie's first release was an EP titled Gods on Voodoo Moon and was recorded on October 18, 1985.
White Zombie released their second EP Pig Heaven that year.
In 1987, band released their third EP Psycho-Head Blowout. Later that year, the band released their first full length album Soul-Crusher.
In 1989, the band released their second LP Make Them Die Slowly. The album was a huge musical shift for White Zombie, While their previous releases had been strictly punk influenced noise rock, Make Them Die Slowly had more of a heavy metal sound.
On March 17, 1992 they released La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1, the album which would break them from their underground status and launch them into mainstream recognition.
