Rob Zombie guitarist John 5 is a very busy guy. In addition to working with Zombie on his fifth solo album, Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor , the axeman recently scored Zombie’s upcoming film, The Lords of Salem , which hits theaters on April 26.
"This was a huge challenge for me,” said John 5 in a statement. “It was like 10 times the intensity of writing a record. You had to be able to follow the story and create emotions for each scene with the music.”
While the guitarist is excited for fans to check out the horror flick, he’s also looking forward to fans getting their hands on Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor , due on April 23. “I can only describe this album as an aggressive, live-sounding and totally unique album,” he explains. “This album has a little bit for everybody. The guitar tones are not traditional. There is also an instrumental track called the ‘Theme for the Rat Regeneration Vendor’ which is played aggressively with an electric sitar.”
