ROB ZOMBIE: Upcoming Album Will Be 'Much Heavier, Darker'

ROB ZOMBIE has told MTV.com that he plans to start writing his next solo album early next year. "I really want to make a much heavier, darker record," he said. "I'm not worrying about radio or television or anything. I just want to make a really scary record."

Zombie will once again co-write with Scott Humphrey, who has worked on all of his solo albums, but Zombie's backing band will probably be entirely new. "I want to get some new people in there and just experiment," he said. "But I don't have any timetable. If a bunch of songs come quick, the record will come quicker. If they don't, the record will take longer."

In addition to writing his new solo album, Zombie will start casting the production for "House of 1000 Corpses 2", the sequel to his directorial debut, which hit theaters in April and raked in $7.1 million in its first 10 days at the box office.

"It's a very different film," Zombie said of the upcoming sequel. "It's much darker and more serious. It's a gritty crime movie like [the 1973 Terrence Malick film] 'Badlands'. There's nothing campy or wacky at all."

If the production stays on schedule, "House of 1000 Corpses 2" will be in theaters next summer.
