This might sounds really odd due to some of the extreme metal that I listen to, but I am a huge Marilyn Manson fan as well. Antichrist Superstar is an amazing album, and I will all in with everything that he did up until the last album really.
Marilyn Manson has released a brand new single! â€˜No Reflectionâ€™ is taken from his upcoming new album â€˜Born Villain, due out April 30 via Cooking Vinyl.
Marilyn Manson has spoken about â€˜Born Villainâ€™ in depth and is feeling pretty bold about it, which is unsurprising.
â€œItâ€™s very cinematic in the sense that when youâ€™re watching a movie and you feel the tension of the score or whatâ€™s happening in the film and something violentâ€™s gonna happen,â€ he tells Aussie radio station Triple J. â€œYou wanna be able to change it when youâ€™re watching the movie. Itâ€™s a very cinematic record in that sense. I think itâ€™s my most conceptual record in that it tells a story. And it told a story while I was making it. It was really interesting making it. I really had to reinvent the way I thought by just stripping everything away and then almost living in a place that was almost like this room, which is white walls, black carpet, and I had to fill the room with music and paintings and other things.â€
On changes in his life and the new era of the Marilyn Manson brand:
Manson: â€œI believe that you are not stuck with a pre-destiny. I believe that there is ways to see all these things that are laid down in front of you and where you belong and to smack yourself in the face when you realize that youâ€™ve strayed off your path and get back to where your path is. And sometimes you have to burn it all down and build it from the bottom up. And thatâ€™s what I think that I really needed to do. Instead of trying to convince myself that Iâ€™d done it before, and in different ways â€” musically, artistically, relationship-wise â€” I had to literally just strip it down to nothing and go from the bottom up.â€
