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. Read more Marilyn Manson – The Pale Emperor (2015)
