THE MODERN MANSON
The post-golden age albums revisited
Eat Me, Drink Me
INTERSCOPE – 2007
The goth-pop album. When Manson’s marriage to burlesque icon Dita Von
Teese imploded, he went full rebound. The video for lead single Heart-Shaped glasses was shot like a sex tape of himself and his new actress girlfriend, rachel evan Wood.
The High End Of Low
INTERSCOPE – 2009
Documenting the ups and downs of his relationships, the songs swerved from the vulnerable to the violent, with surprisingly straightforward – if indulgent – lyrics. Twiggy returned to the band, bringing the album’s distinctive low end.
COOKING VINYL – 2012
addressing the question of whether someone’s born a villain or made one, Manson’s eighth record encompassed an impressive range of styles, from the stompy to the subdued, while mixing high literary and film references to intoxicating effect.
The Pale Emperor
HELL, ETC.– 2015
With the title nodding to David Bowie, Marilyn reinvented himself again with the help of composer Tyler Bates, creating a collection of slick, sexy, Southern songs with broad appeal. as close to mainstream as the God Of Fuck swims.
