Rob Zombie's fifth album, "Venomous Rat Regeneration Vendor", sold 34,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release to land at position No. 7 on The Billboard 200 chart. The record arrived in stores on April 23 via Zodiac Swan/T-Boy/Ume. The CD was produced by Bob Marlette, who has previously worked with everyone from BLACK SABBATH and ALICE COOPER to WILSON PHILLIPS and LYNYRD SKYNYRD.
KORN's 11th studio album, "The Paradigm Shift", is the first to feature original KORN guitarist Brian "Head" Welch in more than eight years. Welch rejoined the group permanently earlier this year after leaving in 2005.
KORN will release "The Paradigm Shift" on October 8. A deluxe edition will feature two bonus tracks and a documentary DVD called "Reconciliation".
