WHITE ZOMBIE’s “It Came From N.Y.C.”

This week marks just one month left until the highly anticipated release of Numero Group‘s “It Came From N.Y.C.” — the quintessential resurrection of WHITE ZOMBIE‘s eternally out-of-print early EPs and LPs.

This set is the most exhaustive attempt so far to document the band’s wondrously ugly birth. Get reintroduced to WHITE ZOMBIE as New York noise-rock, a grotesque creation that clawed and threatened its way to crossover metal glory.

Today, you can watch a never-before-seen unboxing video featuring a lucky set of hands rifling through the vinyl edition of the set. What you see inside is just a taste of what you can expect from this painstakingly-arranged media documentation of WHITE ZOMBIE‘s formative years.

Years before Beavis and Butt-head headbanged “Thunder Kiss ’65” and “More Human than Human” into the eternal rock video canon, there was primordial WHITE ZOMBIE — a diabolically loud by-product of Manhattan’s underground rock scene, born of art-school rendezvous and squalid apartment circumstance.

On June 3, 2016, Numero resurrects WHITE ZOMBIE‘s eternally out-of-print early EPs and LPs as “It Came From N.Y.C.“. This set is the most exhaustive attempt so far to document the band’s wondrously ugly birth. Get reintroduced to WHITE ZOMBIE as New York noise-rock, a grotesque creation that clawed and threatened its way to crossover metal glory.

Spread across five LPs or three compact discs, all 39 tracks have been remastered by WHITE ZOMBIE guitarist J. Yuenger and packaged alongside the original lurid artwork. The accompanying 108-page book painstakingly documents WHITE ZOMBIE‘s punishing progression through scores of unpublished photos, period discography, a T-shirtography, and tales from the terrifying early years that stitch together the sordid story of a band whose true power eclipsed its mainstream heyday.
