Fun, wild, and addictive, The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy builds upon 2016's already-impressive Electric Warlock and winds up being one of Zombie's best.

Consequence of Sound

The veteran rocker's first album in five years is a spooky, groovy, heavy, horror-inspired effort.


... what sets The Lunar Injection… apart from its predecessors: a greater sense of fun and abandon.

With a hackneyed focus on forcibly juxtaposing several random styles into their main rock sound, the stupidly long track names, and the uninspired hard rock instrumental work we get on here, essentially the album comes across as a tasteless meme.
Rolling Stone
New Rob Zombie albums are as lame and predictable as the D-grade fright flicks he worships. His new one offers the same disco-metal dreck he's been peddling for 30 years.
Rob Zombie. So much can be said about him, and to be honest I’m not even sure what I fully think about him. I can say this for certain - he is not tasteful, but he is interesting. That can easily be said about the title of his latest project, “The Lunar Injection Kool Aid Eclipse Conspiracy”, and that’s before you even hear any of the music.

There’s a lot that Rob Zombie and company brings to the table on this project, some are to be expected from one of his ... read more
I am not a follower of Rob Zombie but I would be lying if I say I have never enjoyed one of his songs. The guy is fun, the riffs are most of the time quite contagious and He knows how to mix industrial metal with other styles and even makes the offer danceable.

In this opportunity there are not big surprises to be honest but I must say that at least in terms of energy this album is for sure a step forward compared with “The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration ... read more
Rob Zombie is one of the few heavy acts I still love from childhood....and to be honest, I don't think he and his band get enough props for their recent releases. Once again they return with a long and weird tracklist full of references to horror and many of its subgenres. It's just so heavy, groovy, funky and consistently fun that it's so hard to dislike.
You'd be hard pressed to find a person who'd think that rob zombie's latest effort would be his standard industrial metal stuff, but fused with oblique stuff like country, funk, and Indian folk, and stoner . But it happened, and we're living in that timeline. It sounds interesting definitely, the interludes do bog down the overall experience, but overall, zombie manages to deliver a pretty weird, yet digestible album that sits nicely on his discog.
There are a lot of good moments on here buried under a lot more interludes. This theatrical album would have been better stylized as something in a prog metal category with longer songs that flesh out stories. I don't entirely like the approach this album takes, but this is Rob Zombie in his typical fashion.
