    White Zombie was heavy metal band named after the 1932 film of the same name, which starred Béla Lugosi. They formed in New York City in 1985.

    They originally a noise rock band and a good one IMO, but they are better-known for their later heavy metal-oriented sound which is considered groove metal. Their lyrics were heavily influenced by horror films.
    One of my favorite bands of all time and a great band IMO. Not a fan of Rob's solo work, but White Zombie I am nuts about.

    I like some stuff by these guys but maybe it's because I never bought and inidual albums (I only have a hits collection with the groups stuff and Rob's solo work in the same c.d.) but they don't sound that different to me. My favorite White Zombie song is a cover of a funk song.

    White Zombie-I'm Your Boogie Man


    Love that song!!!! :grinthumb

    I think Rob's solo stuff is to dancey if that makes sense.

    Sounds more like club music then White Zombie did.

    I know he plays White Zombie material on tour, but I am really hoping they reunite. It would be great.

    Ha Ha! Ironically I picked the danciest song White Zombie has! :heheh: I get what you mean though! I mean Never Gonna Stop wasa wrestlers theme for a while so it's definately more palatable to the masses in some ways but I like both the group and solo anyway! :grinthumb

    White Zombie kicked some serious ass man haha. I love their groove metal stuff. Thunder Kiss 65 is probably my favorite song by them.
    My cousin saw them live with Pantera. I would kill to have been able to have seen that show.

    I used to love White Zombie back when it first came out especially La Sexorcisto: Devil Music vol. 1
    Great stuff, it's too bad he went all industrial dance metal on us. :rolleyes:

    Still makes some decent horror movies though.
