Though they eventually became a highly successful heavy metal act, few of White Zombie's fans have any inkling of their beginnings in New York City's late-'80s "pigf**k" scene. Alongside grimy kindred spirits like Pussy Galore, White Zombie played an intense style of noise rock heavily indebted to both No Wave and hardcore, coated in distortion and feedback. Their first two albums, SOUL-CRUSHER and MAKE THEM DIE SLOWLY, employed the style, but have been in the shadows for almost two decades. LET SLEEPING CORPSES LIE finally collects those albums, along with early EPs and the hugely successful platinum albums LA SEXORCISTO and ASTRO CREEP: 2000. Despite their eventual embrace of cleaner, high-tech production and more conventional metal guitars, White Zombie has been consistently grindhouse-movie fixated throughout. Raw punk like "Shack of Hate" is thematically consistent with later, more polished monster rock like "Soul-Crusher" and the colossal radio hit "More Human Than Human."
