Since he created a 'band' in the early '90s bearing his namesake in the mangroves of southern Florida, Marilyn Manson has utilized a rotating cast of cohorts to deliver his music and message. The seer, scribe, painter, actor, panderer of chaos, live performer and rock and roll demagogue, Marilyn Manson roars back above the froth of mass-media and mediocrity to deliver a set of soul-stripping, kiss-smearing, church floor-burning songs. Dare you enter the world of Grammy-nominated metal shock-rocker MM, whose dark gothic image and outrageous behaviour guarantees him front page news across the world? You should do - underneath the make-up, there's an inviting mixture of industrial rock with a techno-distorted edge (and occasional glam-rock slant) that never makes the tabloids. An unforgettable live experience, too.
