For the longest time, I did not know what to make of Marilyn Manson. When I was younger, I thought he was a devil worshipper, sicko, and all-around frightening figure but over the years my opinion has changed. It wasn’t till 2 years ago when I actually sat down and started to listen to his music that I actually learned how much of a genius he is.
The Pale Emperor was one of my favorite albums of 2015 and led to a newfound respect for Marilyn Manson. I have been hyped for his new album which is set to come out next month. Last week Marilyn shared the first single from the album entitled “We Know Where Your Fucking Live.” The song is heavy and loud and features a disturbing music video that was shot in true Marilyn Manson form.
Chelsea Wolfe has a beautiful and haunting voice that is further emphasized on the acoustic track “Flatlands.” The guitar gently moves along as violins sweep in to lift and carry Wolfe’s vocals. Check it out below.
Let me tell you when I first fell in love with Chelsea Wolfe’s music. About a year and a half ago, I was looking for new music that could fit under the dark ambient category and somehow youtube brought me to Wolfe’s “Tracks (Tall Bodies)” song. It took one listen to completely hook me and I have been listening to her ever since. Her dark lyrics and heavy guitar chords resound perfectly on rainy days and nights.
Great news came to my attention today with Wolfe’s new single “16 Psyche” which further expands upon the sound from her last album Abyss. You can literally feel the dark weight descend upon you and leave you wanting more.
