FOR THE FIVE OR TEN OF US WHO STILL CARE, HERE’S SOME NEW MARILYN MANSON MUSIC
I understand that most readers of this site hate Marilyn Manson, and from a certain perspective, I understand why. But Manson is one of the last consistently decent purveyors of pop metal, and, well, some days I loves me some pop metal.
That being said… these two new Manson leaks from his forthcoming The High End of the Low are just terrible. I think that most fans were hoping that the return of Jeordie White Twiggy Ramirez to the fold would mean the return of the rock to Manson’s music – something a little more in the vein of “Irresponsible Hate Anthem” – and this just isn’t that. Which might be fine – personally, I like the Twiggyless Manson albums – but these songs are weak.
The first one, “Arma-God-Damn-Mother-Fucking-Geddon,” has one kinda funny lyric (“First you try to fuck it, then you try to eat it,”), but otherwise sounds like some third rate hipster bullshit; the second song, “The Wow,” is pretty much just a stright-up rip-off of NIN’s “Only.” Seriously. It’s stupid.
Here are the songs. A third, “We’re From America,” will apparently be avail for free download from Manson’s website later today. Although, after hearing these first two songs, I’m not very excited.
Thanks to long time MetalSucks Maniac Kye for the tip!
