The zombies may not have lived very long, but their music is some of the most innovative and creative ever made. Odyssey and Oracle is one of my favorite albums, and they have a plethora of other amazing songs on Begin Here and released as singles.
It's insane to think they broke up before this was even released, this album and their first are awesome. That part in Maybe After He's Gone where it slows down and White's voice comes in....man oh man. When the band reformed in the eighties they did so by rising from the grave and biting people.
The Zombies actually were close to releasing a follow-up album. This album has in recent years been released as “Rest In Peace” and contains many great songs such as “Imagine the Swan”, “I'll Call You Mine”, “Smokey Day” and “I Could Spend the Day”.
Their 1968 album Odessa and Oracle is ranked number 100 on Rolling Stone's list of the 500 Greatest Albums of All Time. The Zombies were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2019.

By playing the game you will be able to expand your knowledge, exercise your brain and a have a great time. For this album, White Zombie’s 4th, kept the hell-bending, booty-shaking grooves of La Exorcist and the countless movie samples, but added an industrial tinge which sometimes reminds me vaguely of Die Krupp's.
Pant era/Sound garden producer Terry Date also came on board to give the band their heaviest sound ever, and former Testament drummer John Tempest luckily replaced the lackluster Ivan de Prume. Guitarist Jay Younger may have produced a great FM Manchu record (The Action Is Go, 1997) but hasn’t done much else worth paying attention to.
As much as a love Sound garden, their show was one of my most anticlimactic concert experiences after seeing White Zombie’s high octane Mad Max-meets-Tim Burton stage antics.
