An uncut and extended version of a classic Rob Zombie interview that first appeared in a 2004 documentary has been released online.

Zombie spoke to Sam Dunn for the documentary Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey – a conversation that Dunn describes as “the most quotable” interview he’s ever carried out.

The new clip, titled Rob Zombie Raw And Uncut, can be viewed below.

Explaining the devotion of metal fans, Zombie says: “Metal fans love it forever. No one goes, ‘Yeah I was really into Slayer one summer.’ I’ve never met that guy. I’ve only met the guy that’s got ‘Slayer’ carved across his chest.”

He also discusses the importance of image in the music industry and his obsession with all things aesthetic when it comes to his work.

Zombie’s upcoming album The Electric Warlock Acid Witch Satanic Orgy Celebration Dispenser is issued on April 29 via UMe/T-Boy Records.

He tours North America with Korn later this year.
