Rob Zombie's move into the solo arena ran parallel with White Zombie for a while. 1998 debut Hellbilly Deluxe (a play on Dwight Yoakam's Hillbilly Deluxe) is subtitled 13 Tales of Cadaverous Cavorting Inside the Spookshow International and it does exactly what it says on the sleeve. It raises merry hell. Hardcore industrial noise and grimy metal abound here but as astute critics noted, despite the wall of metallic sound the arrangements are as fastidious and considered as on any soul or polished pop record. Zombie never throws it against the wall just to see what sticks: there is always a method to his madness. It spawned three hit singles ("Dragula," "Living Dead Girl" and "Superbeast"), made the Billboard Top 5 and sold in excess of three million copies.
