Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem Rock Out to Norwegian Death Metal





Fans of Norwegian death metal, rejoice! Come on! Let us hear you. No really. Um ... Oh, okay. More casting news for Rob Zombie's The Lords of Salem has come our way, and we have it for you hot and fresh.

Zombie announced via his Facebook page that Torsten Voges has been cast in his latest film to play Count Gorgann, lead singer of the Norwegian death metal band Leviathan The Fleeing Serpent.

He joins the previously announced Jeff Daniel Phillips as Herman "Whitey" Salvador, one third of "The Big H Team" at WIQZ - Salem's Rock Radio; Meg Foster as "Margaret Morgan", the leader of a secret coven of witches in Salem; and Ernest Thomas, who will play Chip "Freakshow" McDonald, the station manager at Salem's #1 rock station.

Jason Blum, Steven Schneider, and Oren Peli of Haunted Pictures are producing as well as Zombie regulars Andy Gould and Brian Kavanaugh-Jones. More as it comes.

Synopsis
Heidi, a blonde rock chick, DJs at a local radio station and, together with the two Hermans (Whitey and Munster), forms part of the "Big H Radio Team".

A mysterious wooden box containing a vinyl record arrives for Heidi, "a gift from the Lords". She assumes it's a rock band on a mission to spread their word. As Heidi and Whitey play the Lords' record, it starts to play backwards, and Heidi experiences a flashback to a past trauma.

Later Whitey plays the Lords' record, dubbing them the Lords of Salem, and to his surprise, the record plays normally and is a massive hit with listeners.

The arrival of another wooden box from the Lords presents the Big H Team with free tickets, posters and records to host a gig in Salem. Soon Heidi and her cohorts find that the gig is far from the rock spectacle they're expecting: The original Lords of Salem are returning, and they're out for BLOOD.

While I appreciated what Rob Zombie did with his "Halloween" installments, especially the second one, he's at his best with original material. This sounds like a perfect project for him, and though I'm not expecting "Devil's Rejects"-level brilliance from this one, I think I'm in for a fun, bloody good time!
