zombie_featured_rat

Rob Zombie has been making music as a solo artist for nearly 15 years. In 1998, he bounced back from the break-up of White Zombie with 'Hellbilly Deluxe,' and he hasn't slowed down since.

Stone Sour, ‘House of Gold & Bones Part 2′ – Album Review

Stone Sour
Roadrunner Records

Stone Sour set the bar high with their 'House of Gold & Bones Part 1' disc in 2012, and they don't disappoint with the concept album's conclusion. What listeners get on 'Part 2' is a hard-hitting collection that digs deeper into the storylines that are laid out in the opening disc. And, as Corey Taylor has stated, the second portion plays more like a soundtrack than the first release.
