Surprises are on Alice Cooper 27 Studio album PARANORMAL far more than enough. The most important - if not the most sensational - is his consistent return to the (Rock) values of the 70s, when this music experienced its most colorful epoch. As if there had never been bulky and disagreeable releases such as BRUTAL PLANET (2000) or DRAGONTOWN (2000), Cooper continues to devote himself to deep melodic songs without interfering experiments. In the process, he fires psychedelic space rock from the imagination fog machine (Fireball), surprisingly funky (Dead Flies) confesses to his Deep Purple Roots (Paranormal) and ends the new album with a song to which even Pink Floyd was proud in her blood phase (The Sound Of A). Coming to the highpoints already announced in the run - up: Cooper has a lot of well - known guests with Roger Glover (Deep Purple), Billy Gibbons (ZZ Top) and Larry Mullen Jr. (U2), as well as a bonus CD Promised reunion of the original band (feat. Dennis Dunaway, Neal Smith and Michael Bruce). The best thing about PARANORMAL, however, is: There are at least twelve powerful new songs!

Spooky Pinball LLC will release an Alice Cooper pinball machine, Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle, in this fall.
Says Spooky Pinball LLC: “YES! We are doing Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle. Here's what we can say for now. Lots of classic and modern Alice Cooper music! NOT a "greatest hits" package, (of course it has Coop favorites) but we selected what fits an awesome Spooky monster filled adventure game.
“Matt Montgomery (Piggy D from Rob Zombie's band) is doing some awesome instrumental spooky ambiance music. Jeff Zornow is the artist doing the bad ass retro comic style artwork you see in the backglass. That theme carries through the entire game.”
