Well, I did a little digging an uncovered a song recorded by our pal Eugene. I guess back in 93 kid was shopping his demo around town for a top producer. For your pleasure Eugene's letter.
Dear Producers at XXXXXXXX
Here is my self-produced “Demo” album that I promised you. As I explained in my previous letter, these songs are in the rough state and I placed guitar riffs and a baseline in where they should be placed…etc. I feel with your musical expertise we could turn this into “Gold”! These songs flowed out of me and I have a whole catalogue of similar songs from “the Broken Heart”. I think this can be an unusual concept album that a whole market (in multiple demos) can relate to, I mean who hasn’t been there before?
Again I really feel that this is a diamond in the rough and if properly re-mastered and fine-tuned it could be lucrative for all parties. We don’t necessarily have to use my voice but I am open to receiving professional training.
I look forward to meeting with you in the near future. Rock on.
Eugene S. Van Dekak
THIS SONG IS AMAZING!

SLAYER AND ROB ZOMBIE TO BRING HELL ON EARTH TO NORTH AMERICA
The Two Metal Icons Will Together for the First Time in More than a Decade
LOS ANGELES, CA - MONDAY, March 28, 2011 -- Get ready for hell on earth, because for the first time since they tour together on Ozzfest 1999, Rob Zombie and Slayer are teaming up to hit the road, bringing a glorious purgatory to fans in 12 North American cities. The co-headline trek kicks off Wednesday, July 20 at the Sovereign Center in Reading, PA. Tickets go on sale this Friday, April 1 at 10:00AM local time. Tickets for all shows are available at the venues' box office, and via the online outlets as listed below.
"We haven't toured with Zombie since Ozzfest 1999, so you can expect no less than 'hell on earth,'" said Slayer's Kerry King. "Total sonic annihilation and a visual bludgeoning. Bring your own body bag..."
"Total destruction on stage and off is what this combination promises," states Zombie, "Seriously, how much more Hell could you ask for? The answer is none more Hell."
Both Zombie and Slayer will present their full headline sets at every show, and both bands will close shows over the course of the tour. San Francisco's thrash-metal band Exodus has been confirmed to open all shows.
Slayer has been performing its classic 1990 Seasons In the Abyss album in its entirety over the past several months, but will instead draw from its entire 30-year catalogue for this tour's setlist.
Never one to play it safe, Zombie will be bringing his legendary stage show out in full force. Audiences can expect an exploding non-stop barrage of sin, sex and Satan guaranteed to rip your face off. This a true rock and roll spectacle at its finest.
Rob Zombie: With more than 15 million albums sold, seven Grammy nominations, the helming of five major motion pictures (including the #1 record-breaking Halloween) and dozens of music videos under his belt, Zombie is truly a force to be reckoned with in today's entertainment landscape. For over 25 years his unique meld of horror and hard rock has influenced his sound as a musician, and more recently, his vision as a director and writer. After the tour, Zombie will be starting production on his sixth feature film, The Lords of Salem, with the producers of the Paranormal Activity franchise.
Slayer: The Chicago Tribune's Greg Kot wrote that the four-time-nominated, two-time Grammy winning Slayer is "one of the great American rock bands of the last 30 years, forget about genre." Indeed, few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, having been named "Best Live Band" by numerous media outlets including Revolver, SPIN, and Metal Hammer. With songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society - God's terrifying global genocide, the chaos of our broken political system, chemical warfare, the hideous minds of serial killers, and the way-too-close proximity of world horrors that technology has brought us, Slayer remains crushing and brutal, steadfastly refusing to cater to the Mainstream.

After chants of, “Zombie, Zombie, Zombie…” from the audience, the lights dim and vampiric organ music plays as we are led into the opening of what promises to be a very entertaining set from Rob Zombie. The band emerge covered in skeletal face masks, elaborate helmets and Zombie himself with an elongated skeletal claw on one arm, before launching themselves into Jesus Frankenstein.
After the introductory songs, Zombie is quick to shed the extra weight of his helmet, claw and trench coat, instead whipping out the litheness of a much younger man. In Scum Of The Earth, he is all knees and joints as he kicks and struts around stage in flared leather pants. Visually, the massed array of screens behind the band show schlock imagery from pre 60’s horror movies and violent anime, setting off the acts shock horror metal perfectly. Perhaps due to the lengths between visits to Australian shores, material doesn’t seem to centre on one album, with older fan favourites like Living Dead Girl getting as much of a run as newer album songs like Sick Bubblegum, with its gender-dividing call and response of “Rock” “MotherFucker” while beach balls are launched overhead. Other highlights include American Witch, White Zombie track More Human Than Human and Demon Speeding, which ends in a double-kick heavy drum solo.
Apart from Zombie himself, the focus is very much on guitarist John 5, who goes through a ridiculous solo that ends in him playing with his teeth. Meanwhile Zombie, when addressing the audience, acts as some kind of crazed Preacher drawing out his words and raising his hands out above his head. The set closes out with the dirty yet catchy Pussy Liquor from Rob Zombie’s first foray into film House Of A Thousand Corpses, Never Gonna Stop and finally the White Zombie hit Thunder Kiss 65.
The band are led into an encore set by Rob Zombie’s grindhouse trailer for Werewolf Women Of The S.S. Leading into the song of the same name. The band returning to stage outfitted in SS-like red military uniforms, This leads into Devil Man before a brief interlude in which Zombie changes into robe made entirely of the Australian flag, closing with the industrial powerhouse of Dragula -- FASTERLOUDER.COM
