Today marks the 30th anniversary of White Zombie‘s La Sexorcisto: Devil Music Vol. 1 being spat into the world. For many, this author included, the record is a monumental moment in metal history, an example of how weird, far-out, and fun metal could be at a time where it was shaking on its legs. Now, our friends at Metal Injection have gotten 3/4 of the band together to talk about the process and impact behind this historic record.
In the video below, fans can watch as three of the musicians behind La Sexorcisto — Sean Yseult, Jay Yuenger, and Ivan de Prume — sit down with Metal Injection’s Frank Godla to talk about the history and legacy of this amazing record. From the songwriting process to Beavis and Butt-Head to their absent bandmate, the trio dive into all things Sexorcisto on the anniversary of the album’s birth.
Tune in below, and party like it’s NINETEEN SIXTY FIVE FIVE FIVE!
