I get a certain enjoyment out of reviewing records that I know have no chance in hell at being decent. So when I saw The Devil Made Me Do It by Scum Of The Earth in the review queue I quickly jumped on it. That was the easy part, because now I'd have to listen to it.

Scum Of The Earth is a project from Riggs of Rob Zombie fame. That alone was a pretty good indication of what I was in for. What I didn't know is that it would be some weird electro/dubstep/butt rock that sounds like Anton La Vey fucking a Transformer. He is obviously and shamelessly riding Rob Zombies' coattails with his image, lyrics, and everything else. What I don't think he intended on was sounding like a zombie member of Rammstein that has come back from the future to rape our ears. I think this just sounds like goth dubstep, which I call darkstep, but my girlfriend says it isn't dubstep. If it is dubstep, it is stupid, if it's not dubstep, it is still stupid.

There is a song called "Zombies Vs. Skeletons." That war sounds more brittle than brutal. I'd rather watch a rap battle between Stephen Hawking and Hellen Keller on World Star Hip Hop and hope for some grimey hood shit to go down. Not only would it sound better, but I'd walk away with a feeling of sympathy and respect instead of the disgust and hatred.

If you are into Rob Zombie, Skrillex, and hate your parents, then this might be for you. If you that sounds like something for you please be aware that you are likely out ranked in taste by Juggalos and I don't like you very much.

I was at a Zombie show a few years ago and they were giving away this shitheaps first record. I made attempts to listen to it on the way home. It's pretty awful. Even people I know that tend to gravitate towards shit like this admit that it's terrible too. That says alot.
