Loudwire had a blast at this year's Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio, but the highlight came when we were called upon by the rock gods to sit in a room and have a conversation with Rob Zombie. The rocker and filmmaker was incredibly gracious and offered insight into a number of items on his plate.

We got the skinny on the creative process for his new album, for which he'll head into the studio to record this summer; we discussed the relationship between him and Marilyn Manson (now that a couple of Manson's former band members are in Zombie's group); and we even squeezed a few details about his upcoming movie 'The Lords of Salem.'

Step deep into the mind of Rob Zombie by checking out our video interview with the rocker below:
