WHITE ZOMBIE / La Sexorcisto: Devil Music, Vol. 1 (1992)

This album was the soundtrack to my time in art school.  Being inspired by Van Gogh, Hieronymus Bosch, and White Zombie was an exhilarating experience.
Musically it’s dominated by psychedelic, sludgy, almost stoner groove riffs that are undeniably catchy.  The aesthetic is helped along by a plethora of audio samples which capture the feeling of living inside a Horror B-Movie, which I imagine was the idea.  If it didn't fall into sameness in the last third it’d be perfect.
Rob Zombie never topped this album, either musically nor conceptually.
