Rob Zombie’s latest film 31, like every other one of his movies, has been extremely divisive among fans and critics alike. Whether or not you liked the film (or any of his films, for that matter), I think we can all agree on one thing: The man knows how to create a kick-ass soundtrack. 31 is no exception, and it was recently released on vinyl for your listening pleasure. In Hell, everybody loves popcorn. And a good vinyl.
Not only does the album contain such awesome rockers as Lynyrd Skynyrd’s “That Smell” and James Gang’s “Walk Away”, but it has numerous tracks throughout the 28-song running length that are original pieces of music from 31 by both Rob Zombie and John 5. Even better is the inclusion of certain spoken word sequences from the film. Put together, these three ingredients make for a vicious, haunting collection of music. On vinyl, no less!
The physical vinyl release is available through Amazon, which includes a free mp3 rip of the album. You can also buy it digitally through Apple Music, but come on – every collector knows that vinyl is where it’s at.
Additionally, you can purchase the film on BluRay through this link. We’re still waiting on the official uncut version, but in the meantime, fans can get their hands on the plain old “R” rated cut. I’m expecting nothing short of complete mayhem when the original NC-17 version is finally viewable – as if the theatrical wasn’t gory enough.
You can find more information on the soundtrack through Zombie’s official website here, along with links to download it from Spotify and Google Play for subscribing users.
Man…all this talk about the soundtrack has really made me want to go back and rewatch the movie. I mean, how insane was Richard Brake as Doom Head? One of the best characters Zombie has ever cooked up, if you ask me.
