By definition REQUIEM is prayer for the salvation of the soul(s) of the departed, REQUIEM is also the title of various musical compositions used in such liturgical services. In the case of John 5, REQUIEM is a mind-blowing, sinister guitar instrumental with song titles named after torture devices. “I find the macabre fascinating, it’s all over history. In researching the torture devices I heard music to describe each one,” explains John 5.
John 5 performs all instruments with the exception of the time-keeping by Zombie band-mate Tommy Clufetos (drums). The album was recorded in the middle of night that lent a cool vibe and only time John 5 had studio times. Most of the songs are 12–13 minutes long so John 5 decided to put in markers to divide them up so when songs change from track to track it seems to meld in to each other.
John 5 has created a worldwide following as a widely respected guitarist with such platinum artists as Marilyn Manson, David Lee Roth, Rob Halford and now an integral member of Rob Zombie. John 5’s eclectic influences combine for a truly unique guitar oriented record that once again sets new standards in the genre.
