vinyl'La Sexorcisto : Devil Music Volume 1' was both a critical and commercial success for White Zombie, climbing up the charts in the US and gaining massive MTV video airplay and mainstream rock radio airplay with 'Thunder Kiss '65' and 'Black Sunshine'. The album's sound is a mix of groove metal and funk metal with lots of B-movie samples. Tactless and continuously shocking, lyricist Rob Zombie reveals blatant tales of muscle cars, sleazy encounters and Fangoria-mustered fantasy, clearly paying homage to vintage trash culture. Rob Zombie explained he 'wanted to keep a groovable dance element in the music', a trait which is often absent in metal music.
