"The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy" is a stand out album from Rob Zombie. The piece not only gives us the sound we are used to from this artist but also contains some weird tracks that are so different from what Rob Zombie normally puts out. The American artist has always been known for his whacky song titles and lyrics that are a little bit nonsensical. This new album gives us that while also introducing us to new sounds that we haven't experienced from Rob Zombie before. The first two singles that were released prior to the albums drop "The Triumph of King Freak" and "The Eternal Struggles of the Howling Man" were typical Rob Zombie songs so it's interesting to see how much of this album is different and that they chose to give us the ones that stuck to the same formula prior to this release. There is other songs on the album such as "Get Loose" that in my opinion also stick to that same formula that we have been hearing from Rob Zombie for years. So if you are a fan that isn't too keen on change there is definitely songs in there for you. Now to talk about the new and interesting songs. I have to start with "18th Century Cannibals, Excitable Morlocks and a One-Way Ticket on the Ghost Train", this one really shocked me but in a good way. We see the hard rock artist turn to a more country inspired sound. This may be something totally different, a sound that I personally have never heard Rob Zombie venture into but I have to say he did an amazing job of it. The song is super catchy and still contains a lot of hard rock/metal elements within it. Rob Zombie has managed to fuse the two sounds the same way many artists have before but he has also managed to make it totally Rob Zombie. A couple other songs I really want to talk about are "The Satanic Rules of Blacula" which is a personal favourite off of the album, and "Crow Killer Blues". These two songs to me felt heavier than the rest of the album. A complete contrast to the super chill "Boom-Boom-Boom". "The Satanic Rules of Blacula", has these amazing drums and as a whole the song has such a hype vibe and is very catchy. It didn't take me long before I was headbanging along with this one. Then there's "Crow Killer Blues" which is to me by far the heaviest on the album. It seems to contain elements of classic metal and has these stadium worthy guitar riffs. Definitely a song for those of you that are into heavier Zombie. Overall I found "The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy" to be a really interesting album. It's as though Rob Zombie threw in a little something for everyone. Is there songs that I don't particularly enjoy on here? Yes, but there all also songs I love and I think a lot of people may find that with this album. It wont be one I spend a lot of time listening to cover to cover but there are definitely songs on here that I will be sticking on repeat.
