When Rob Zombie returned to the studio to work on the full-length follow-up to his 1998 solo debut Hellbilly Deluxe, he took an "if-it-ain’t-broke" approach to songwriting. Not only did he craft a new batch of anthemic industrial-tinged metal songs filled with b-movie samples and campy rhythmic flourishes, he hired the same musicians and drew from the same production team to make a record that’s pretty much a sequel to its predecessor.
The Sinister Urge, which came out on Nov. 13, 2001 was recorded with producer Scott Humphrey at the Chop Shop in Hollywood, Calif. and Zombie worked on the album with guitarist Riggs, bassist Blasko and his former White Zombie drummer John Tempesta. It would be the last Zombie album to feature Riggs and Tempesta, who resurfaced two years later in Scum of the Earth, a band named after a Rob Zombie song which – though they only played originals – pretty much sounded like a Zombie cover band.
