  White Zombie (band) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
White Zombie was an American Groove metal band named after the 1932 film White Zombie, which starred Bela Lugosi.
White Zombie was known for combining heavy-metal music with driving lead guitar riffs (as on "Super-Charger Heaven"), overlayed with lyrics heavily influenced by horror films, with often nonsensical imagery.
While Rob Zombie has mostly kept the image of his former band, fans of both have noted significant musical differences between the two, notably the absence of the heavy bass and lead guitar-playing that characterised White Zombie's musical style.

White Zombie opens on a dark road in the Caribbean nation of Haiti.
In movies like this, the zombies were menaces, but weren't the villains, a role reserved for human characters like Legendre who manipulated the undead for their own evil purposes.
This release of White Zombie is the highly-acclaimed restoration of the film done by the Roan Group, and they should give themselves a big pat on the back for this effort.

 TrouserPress.com :: White Zombie
When White Zombie crept into New York's then-vaunted scum-rock scene, the group was perceived as playing a kitsch in-joke on downtown types by enveloping a standard Birthday Party-via-Blue Cheer sludge onslaught in the gaudiest arena-rock trappings you could buy at the 99-cent store.
But despite the art-school background shared by singer Rob Zombie (actually Robert Cummings, aka Rob Straker, aka Rob Dirt) and bassist Sean Yseult (Reynolds), it soon became evident that White Zombie viewed their capering with the ghost of metal past not as burlesque but as communion.
A pair of self-released singles put the Zombies on the Lower East Side map, situating them somewhere between Raging Slab and the Swans — with an uncommon flair for the visual manifested in the frontman's Big Daddy Roth-inspired cartooning and a bandwide affection for mangy threads that antedated "grunge" per se.

 MTV.com | White Zombie | Biography
And while White Zombie was originally thought to be a full-fledged ‘band,' it would later become known that the group was almost entirely the vision of their larger-than-life singer, Rob Zombie.
Hence, the White Zombie story begins with good ol' Rob (who was then known as Rob Cummings), shortly after he relocated from his hometown of Haverhill, MA, to New York City, during the early ‘80s.
It was also around this time that White Zombie began incorporating industrial rock elements into their sound, which made them one of the few hard rock bands of the era that you could also dance to.

 Zombies of the Early Horror Movie
The word "zombie" was not used until 1929, yet since then, zombies have been used as a subject for horror movies as frequently as other famous movie monsters.
Instead of an inherent need to kill as soon as they left their graves, the early walking dead were usually woken for a specific purpose under the wilful gaze of a madman who seeks cheap labour, or a scientist wanting to help the war effort with invincible armies.
Although the word "zombie" was introduced to American audiences with the book about Haitian voodoo, Magic Island by William B. Seabrook in 1929, cinema's zombies had begun their evolution as far back as 1919.

The four members of White Zombie are all in their late 20s; they're all of the last high-school class or so that can remember a time when a band could hit the top 10 before everyone in the U.S.A. knew what the lead singer looked like.
White Zombie is indeed a small family, but as its fortunes grow, the band is attracting a growing network of family friends.
As for today's TV heroes, Beavis and Butt-head, and their role in breaking White Zombie, Rob can only say, "Hey, it's gotta be mentioned in every article." His tone of semi-resignation registers as he cites sales figures to show the level of the band's success prior to Beavis and Butt-head's largesse (rock'n'roll's greatest backhanded compliment).

Having landed in a world of almost perpetual night, where hollow-eyed zombies lumber through the sugar mill and the ghostly town is eerily bereft of living souls, she becomes the object of desire for Legendre, whose plan to possess her involves her initiation to the world of the undead.
This first zombie movie is also one of the best, with Lugosi's archly sinister performance dominating the film (thankfully obscuring a lot of overacting by supporting players), and astounding sets and gorgeous matte paintings creating a wondrous sense of poetic doom.
WHITE ZOMBIE is a great movie with a nice, dark subtext about control and the consequences of obsession.

Beaumont uses Legendre's zombie potion to bend Madeleine to his will, but then is dissatisfied with her soulless husk and wants her turned back.
"White Zombie" never really frightens its audience, but instead sustains a high level of downright eeriness throughout, achieving its effect by taking such simple objects as the scarf used to wrap a voodoo doll or a rose containing poison and making them important elements in Lugosi's evil machinations.
This film might be a talkie, but its sensibilities are those of the silent era and since it begins the tradition of zombies in the movies that continues down to "Night of the Living Dead" and other light hearted fare makes it at least an interesting footnote in the history of horror films.

The drums were quite steady (almost boring) however, he integrated his drums, adding effects to the guitar (just made it sound better, plus the triple kicks on Black Sunshine were superb).
The bass delivered, and Rob Zombie was definitely a genius, adding almost a rap like sound, with some samples and such, and delivering out the songs with almost a thrash/death metal-like croak.
I believe Rob Zombie was trying to do this, but I'm not sure.

 Ziggy's Video Realm: Bela Lugosi in White Zombie (1932)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-07)
White Zombie is a classic horror film like no other, one that does not follow the standard forms adopted by all of the Universal releases in either scripting or presentation.
The makeup work on the zombies is excellent, avoiding the temptation to go with something overdone while at the same time giving them a truly otherworldly, undead appearance, the look of sallow automatons whose souls have been stolen and whose lifeless bodies are in the thrall of their master.
Unfortunately – again, perhaps because White Zombie did not have the benefit of Universal to watch over its print – most versions of the film available (or broadcast) are not of the greatest visual quality, appearing quite dark, especially around the edges.

 White Zombie: Anatomy of a Horror Film by Gary Don Rhodes | PopMatters Book Review
The 1932 film White Zombie has been hailed by some as classic horror and derided by others as an incompetent mess.
Since the film was made independently, the few records that were kept are long gone, and what reminiscences might have been given in long ago interviews are filled with easily detected (but less easily corrected) inaccuracies.
It's true that White Zombie could bear more examination than it generally gets, but Rhodes' analysis seems absurdly out of keeping with a film that was slapped together quickly and cheaply by a director showing few intellectual preoccupations in his other films.

You've got the perfect music and video package in his greatest hits compilation "Past, Present & Future."

It's a solid career retrospective for one of rock's true showmen, the devil spawn of Alice Cooper, who himself pens an appreciation as part of the album's lurid packaging and even did a duet with Zombie (included here) in 1996 on the song "Hands of Death (Burn Baby Burn)" for "The X-Files" TV series soundtrack.
