Artist: Rob Zombie

Quick Review: Rob Zombie seems to be another one of everybody’s favorite musicians to hate on recently, despite constantly putting on an energetic live show and basically being the closest thing we have to this generation’s Alice Cooper.

Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor is a mouthful of a name, but the album itself is a concise 38:50 in length, and combines some of the industrial sounds back from the original Hellbilly Deluxe and The Sinister Urge with the more straightforward style found on Educated Horses and Hellbilly Deluxe 2.

With songs like the hard rockin’ “Teenage Nosferatu Pussy” and  the industrial tinged “Rock n Roll (In a Black Hole),” you can kind of guess what to expect here, however, that’s not necessarily a bad thing.

Final Verdict: 8.5 out of 10
