ROB ZOMBIE Bassist BLASKO To Be Featured In 'Wizard Of Gore' Remake

THE DEATH RIDERS, the California-based band featuring ROB ZOMBIE bassist Rob "Blasko" Nicholson, will be featured in the upcoming remake of "The Wizard of Gore", starring Crispin Glover. The band, which also includes Jonny Coffin (owner of Coffin Case Co.), will be featured playing during a carnival-like bar scene. They will be playing two songs from their debut CD, "Soundtrack for Depression", which was released by Horror High in August 2005. The band will be shooting their scene(s) on Tuesday, March 7, 2006

In an interview with Horror Rock Bass, Blasko described THE DEATH RIDERS' sound as "very much different [from ROB ZOMBIE]. To do something like Rob or Glenn [Danzig] would be too predictable, and let's face it, those guys are awesome, no one wants to hear me ripping them off. THE DEATH RIDERS is a project that has a been a few years in the making and I'm very excited about it finally seeing the light of day. Fans can expect a barrage of everything from AFI to WHITE ZOMBIE and everything in between. Imagine 'Night of the Living Dead' meets 'Satan's Sadists' put to music."

THE DEATH RIDERS consists of Blasko, Coffin (guitar), Daniel Gray (vocals) and D.C. (drums).

"Soundtrack for Depression" track listing:

01. God Hates the Dirty Ones (feat. Steve Stevens)
02. Suffer (mp3)
03. Under (mp3)
04. I'm a No One
05. Death In The Valley
