Marilyn Manson Decapitates Donald Trump in New “Say10” Video
Marilyn Manson has released a video teaser for the title track to his new album, Say10.
Unsurprisingly, Manson has attempted to make the video controversial so you’ll watch — in this case, by pretending to decapitate Donald Trump.
Surprisingly… the song actually sounds really cool. It’s very much in the vein of Antichrist Superstar, or at least Holy Wood, either of which would be a massive improvement over his more recent output. I was legit bummed when the song cut out so early because I wanted to hear to the rest. We had fun with Manson’s less-than-sophisticated wordplay, but the shock rocker may yet get the last laugh.
Manson had the following to say about the clip (via The Daily Beast):
“Either way tomorrow goes, the visuals are meant to create contemplation. Because it’s obviously bigger than just tomorrow. It’s about the desperate acts of people who believe something that is preached by an unbeliever. Right now we’re in such a state of confusion when it comes to religion, politics, sexuality, and how they all tie together, and it’s being turned into a circus and a sideshow—and that’s something that I’ve been described as a ringleader of. It seems like a time for me as an artist, and as an American artist, to make something that causes a new set of questions to arise that aren’t simply statements.”
Check out the video below. Consider it NSFW due to violence and gore. Say10 is tentatively scheduled for release in February.
