Marilyn Manson - The Pale Emperor (2015) Scheduled to be released on January 20, 2015 in the US, but already leaked out to the internet, the much anticipated, ninth in line, studio album by one of the most feared, targeted and blamed artists, Marilyn Manson it’s here. Are you ready to meet your maker?
Age 45, born Brian Hugh Warner, but better known as Marilyn Manson are manage to reinvent himself and his music each and every time. “The Pale Emperor” pick up where “Born Villain” left off in 2012, and The Pale Emperor is a much calmer, grown up and cynical character then the outrageous and furious Anti-Christ Superstar was back in 1996. Probably some of you guys will miss those massive, bone-cutting riffs and unstoppable industrial metal hurricanes like “The Beautiful People” or “Irresponsible Hate Anthem”, but this post-rock/post-metal melange of bitterness and muted revolt reflects who is Marilyn Manson now. Looking back won’t bring back that energy and feeling or his former band mates.
The current line up it’s made of old and constant brother in arms bassist Twiggy Ramirez, music producer, film music composer and guitarist Tyler Bates and drummer Gil Sharone of Stolen Babies.
And “The Pale Emperor” it’s quite film-like, don’t judge the (ob)scenes – tracks – separately, but think about the bigger picture, the whole album instead. (more…)

AC/DC - Rock or Bust (2014) Who would believed that there will be a fifteenth AC/DC album in 2014 on 19 February 1980? With a serious six year gap since the release of their previous album, “Black Ice”, and repeated rumors regarding their eminent retirement, nobody really expected one more AC/DC album. But damn, if Rolling Stones managed to celebrated their 50th anniversary in the summer of 2012, it would be a serious treason if the Australian rockers would not have their 40th anniversary with a world tour in 2015! Still in school-uniform outfit, Angus is 59 years old!!
At under 35 minutes, it is the shortest studio album ever released by the band, two minutes shorter than their previous shortest album, “Flick of the Switch”, which was released back in 1983. Looking at the song titles – Rock the Blues Away, Got Some Rock & Roll Thunder, Rock or Bust, Rock the House, Play Ball, Baptism by Fire – it is definitively a genuine AC/DC album: everything just stay the same as it ever was. And – obviously – that’s what most of their fans expect from them. I think bringing in someone like DJ Lethal – for instance – or any other creative fresh mind and not some fancy assh*le like Sonny John Moore (aka. Skrillex), would be a nice touch, but then again, experiments are always involve high level of risk and these guys and their hardcore audience are extremely conservative. Don’t worry guys, the album consist of only good-old Rock’N’Roll!!
The only change is Malcolm and Angus’ nephew Stevie Young replacing Malcolm Young who seems to be seriously ill and unable to perform. (more…)
