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.
