(8/10) One thing's almost crystal clear; Rob Zombie is probably winning the award for 'longest album title' and 'longest song title'. Just writing the tracklist is an effort that takes quite a while. But is it also worth it? Is the sixth solo album of our dear horror 'industrialist' also living up to the high expectations?

Yes, it does. Like each time listening to a new Zombie album it takes me some time to get into the songs. "The Last of the Demons Defeated" is kicking off this record. It's an heavy industrial metal track that incudes weird samples and an almost endless repetion of Zombie shouting "Endless War".

The next track" Satanic Cyanide! The Killer Rocks on!" is one of the slower ones on the new album. It's a bit more Mason-related and the fun part is in the beginning when some helium-vocals build an introduction for this heavy steam roller.

"The Life And Times Of A Teenage Rock God" is a very rhythm-based creepy monster that is an acoustic horror show. And it's the most approachable track looking on the first triple of tunes. In case this song would become a single release, I could foresee some airplay potential.

Each of the tracks on "The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser" comes with a lot of loops and samples, something that's also valid for "Well, Everybody’s Fucking In A U.F.O.", a number that reminds me partly of Ministry's "Jesus Build my Hotrod". 

The longer I listen to the album, the more I get the impression that if Alice Cooper would make heavy industrial music, the result would partly sound like Rob Zombie. "The Hideous Exhibitions Of A Dedicated Gore Whore" is one of these tracks that sound like an industrial version of an Alice Cooper song, that could almost come from "Brutal Planet".

The weirdest track on Zombie's new album comes at the end. "Wurdalak" includes mighty modern metal riffs, crazy samples and also silent, but unholy piano parts. This track is an evil monster that will follow you eventhough the album ends at this stage. "Wurdalak" is a musical madhouse of sounds that underlines Zombie's status of being the master of horror, moviewise and musicwise. 

"The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser" became a typical Rob Zombie album, containing songs that can easily be recognised as being from the American master of horror sounds. In addition the disc got an excellent sound and is a 'must have' for fans of the 'Catweazle of rock'n'roller', with songs like "The Hideous Exhibitions Of A Dedicated Gore Whore", that opens doors to new fans too.
