Biography

Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States (1989 – present)

Marilyn Manson is an American rock band from Fort Lauderdale, Florida, United States formed in 1989 by frontman Marilyn Manson and Daisy Berkowitz. The group was originally named Marilyn Manson & The Spooky Kids, with their theatrical performances gathering a local cult following in the early 1990s, until the band shortened the name in 1992. The band’s lineup has changed between many of their album releases; the current members of Marilyn Manson are the eponymous lead singer (the only remaining original member), bassist Twiggy Ramirez, guitarist Tyler Bates, live guitarist Paul Wiley, and drummer Gil Sharone.

Until 1996, the name of each member was originally created by combining the first name of an iconic female sex symbol and the last name of an iconic serial killer (e.g. Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson). The members of the band dress in outlandish makeup and costumes, and have engaged in intentionally shocking behavior both onstage and off. In the past, their lyrics often received criticism for their anti-religious sentiment and references to sex, violence and drugs. Their performances have frequently been called offensive and obscene, and, on several occasions, protests and petitions have led to the group being banned from performing.

As this controversy began to wane throughout the 2000s, so did the band’s mainstream popularity. Despite this, in June 2003, veteran rock journalist Jon Wiederhorn of MTV.com referred to Marilyn Manson as “the only true artist today,” and the frontman and band continues to have a strong cult following in 2015.

    Great new effort! I really like it, good to have him back. But to be honest though - imo even THEFL had it's moments and good songs. Same with Eat me, Drink me. Everyone is entitled to his own opinion though. At least it's good to have him in this world. :)

    What I think not very good! Voice is totally gone! Yes, he was never the voice of the 90's but damn at least when you record you can fix it with all the tech and gadgets we have! It just seems like a rushed album! A lot of repetitive text! Just for me there was no heart and desire in this album!! At least high had heart and a meaning! At least he made 4 great albums I can deal with that I guess :)
