Guitarist/composer John 5 recently spoke about his work for the upcoming Rob Zombie film The Lords Of Salem, which hits theaters on Apr. 26th. John 5 also gave some information about the upcoming Zombie album Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor, which hits streets Apr. 23rd (pre-order here).
Talking about the film score, John 5 states, “This was a huge challenge for me. It was like 10 times the intensity of writing a record. It took months and months as the timing is key to each scene. The music was very challenging and sometimes there was no key signature or time signature for this music, which is all orchestral and acoustic with the exception of one death metal song. You had to be able to follow the story and create emotions for each scene with the music. I cannot wait for people to see and hear this movie. It is incredible!”
About the new Zombie album, 5 adds, “I can only describe this album as an aggressive, live-sounding and totally unique album. This album has a little bit for everybody. The guitar tones are not traditional. There is also an instrumental track called ‘The Theme For The Rat Regeneration Vendor’ which is all played aggressively with an electric sitar.”
