I have been a White Zombie fan for many years, and when I found this pro-shot full live video, I knew I had to post it here. Scroll down to see the video, or if you have randomly landed here and don’t know who the band White Zombie is, I encourage you to read more.
Watch White Zombie, 1993 Live Performance
The concert video below was filmed on August 10th 1993 – in Norwalk, Connecticut, on the La Sexorcisto tour. Props to brainphreak who took the time to upload it. If you like White Zombies music as much as I do, then I am sure you will get the same excitement I felt when Rob starts doing his trademark zombie strutting around.
White Zombie (band)
In the early ’90s, one of the hottest bands on the groove-heavy metal scene was White Zombie, a four-piece with a signature style fronted and founded by writer, vocalist, and graphic artist Rob Zombie with Sean Yseult on bass, Jay Yuenger on guitar and Phil Buerstatte on drums. Phil Buerstatte sadly died in 2013.
In 1993, the band was touring on the back of the success of their critically acclaimed album La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1. The album featured 14 groove-heavy songs of electrifying biker metal splashed with horror cinema samples and scream-along choruses. The hit album spawned the all-time classic singles Thunder Kiss ’65 and Black Sunshine.
The band followed up La Sexorcisto with Astro-Creep: 2000 – Songs of Love, Destruction And Other Synthetic Delusions of the Electric Head, which reached 6th on the US Billboard 200. Astro-Creep: 2000 is White Zombie’s best-selling album, certified Double Platinum by the RIAA and selling over 2,600,000 copies in America since its release in 1995. Hit singles from this album include “Electric Head Pt. 2 (The Ecstasy)”, “More Human Than Human”, and “Super-Charger Heaven”.
The band split in 1998, with Rob Zombie launching a successful solo career, winning a Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance and later establishing a career as a film director, creating two of my favourite horror movies House of 1000 Corpses and The Devil’s Rejects.
