Educated Horses is Rob Zombie's 3rd solo studio album and was released in 2006.
Rob Zombie of the band White Zombie is an artist that I have always been aware of and I have heard various tracks from him in White Zombie or as a solo artist in some rock bars, on KNAC radio and occasionally small glimpses on television. He is not an artist, I knew a great deal about - so checking out the Educated Horses album was a bit of a gamble.
Zombie, like me a lifelong fan of Alice Cooper has worked with him numerous times in the past and this album Educated Horses, whether intentionally or unintentionally sounds very similar to Alice Cooper's Brutal Planet album - it may have been that this was Rob's sound on the albums (Hellbilly Deluxe and The Sinister Urge) which were made prior to Brutal Planet and it would therefore be his sound, I'm not sure - I've never listened to those albums.
Either way, it sounds similar - which is a good thing as the raucous heavy metal from Brutal Planet is an excellent thing in itself. American Witch and Seventeen Years Locust are my two favourite tracks of the album due to their sing-a-long qualities and catchy lyrics and riffs. The later tracks tend to have a bit of an industrial metal sound to them rather similar to one of Marilyn Manson's best tracks - Rock is Dead. It seems that the Zombster has achieved this sound with twice the annoying publicity and whilst dabbling with other sounds too to create a fairly eclectic album which is noise-filled from the first second.
