The Autobiography Of Marilyn Manson

Little known fact: I was/am/probably always will be a big, big fan of Marilyn Manson. His biography, his music, his persona in interviews, and his live shows. Back in high school I was a typical suburban goth kid who wore lots of black in the middle of summer, had a small collection of his band shirts. Also, Anti-Christ Superstar holds a place in my top10 alltime records (it's at #7 between Bjork's Post and Converge's Jane Doe, if anyone gives a poop).

Ok, so that was more than one LKF, but here goes some information on the June 5th release of his 6th studio album, Eat Me, Drink Me. According to Manson, this is "the record he was always supposed to make," despite his 4 year black-out period in the music industry. "I feel like after Columbine, I went over the hill" of what he could tolerate. Following the shootings at Virginia Tech yesterday, the infamous 1999 school-shooting has been brought up more often than usual. Recorded with Tim Skold (KMFDM, MDFMK), who joined the band upon the departure of Twiggy Ramirez, the biggest hype about the record has been Manson's proclamation that "If I Was Your Vampire," a six-minute track on the record which he's described as an updated "Bela Lugosi's Dead."

I may love Manson, but damn...nothing's going to replace that song.
