We have entered “The Golden Age of Grotesque”

Marilyn Manson has returned to crash the ether with a wit-savage shape, painting us a depraved new world disorder on his fifth studio album titled, “The Golden Age Of Grotesque.” Manson is currently in the studio and is expecting a fall release on Interscope Records. Even at such an early stage, the focus of the music’s aggressive transformation is fashioned and fearless.

The nearly completed collection of songs is being orchestrated by the theatrical production team of Manson, Tim Skold and Ben Gross. The result is what Marilyn Manson describes as his “most genius deluge of hardcore guitar-drum violence and reckless electronic-punk vaudeville mixed with 30s cabaret decadence and Arch-dandy dada. These snot-nose stompalongs will convince the finger-waving, faithless bangsters one thing for sure. We can only become what we really are when we no longer believe what others have convinced us to be. We won’t follow religion, we are one. And the understanding of my art is only the sad product of journalism. Fuck art. I am art.”

On his influences, Manson had this to say, “My inspiration for this record came from historic parallels to my own present position in popular culture. Most notably, I found myself fascinated with the overwhelming imaginative, sexually-depraved artistic chaos that just bled from some of history’s greatest minds as Berlin reached its creative extreme peak. The unfortunate onset of rigid control and conformity that brought Berlin to its fiery end seemed to almost mirror today’s less violent, but equally ignorant censorship and fear of ‘dangerous’ art.”

As a close to his speech, Manson added this: “So stand up dopplegangers, we are on a leave of Absinthe! Our lives are theatre, we are the art and the world will now become the beautifully grotesque stage it was always meant to be. Am I just an innocuous entertainer or am I the destructive force and the terrible reality you’ve suspected all along?

The simple answer is, I am Marilyn Manson.”

It sort of makes sense that Marilyn Manson has chosen to cover Soft Cell's 1982 new wave classic, "Tainted Love," for the upcoming film "Not Another Teen Movie."

A video for the track was shot by Philip Atwell, who has directed clips for Dr. Dre and Eminem. The soundtrack for "Not Another Teen Movie" is in stores NOW.

A remix of Manson's track "Nobodies" is currently featured in the Johnny Depp film "From Hell." Originally, Manson was approached to score the film, but creative differences with the production team nixed the deal, a spokesperson for Manson said. In the end, South African composer Trevor Jones supplied the sparse orchestral score.

Manson's other project of the moment is a live DVD, which was shot October 8, 2001 at the Grand Olympic Auditorium in Los Angeles. The still-untitled DVD is scheduled for release sometime this year, the spokesperson said.
