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 2014.

    If you think Deep Six is awesome wait to hear "The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles" and "Cupid Carries A Gun"!

    Half of the songs from the new album, like Odds of Even, Killing Strangers or Birds of Hell are actually top tier good. Funny part is, that the only mediocre song is Deep Six.

    No matter what you say about the album, boring lyrics/cheap ''Deep Six'' video and stuff like that, I think that after all it's a pretty good and strong album and actually I loved it after the first listening. ♥

    Manson has forgotten how to make great music and great videos. He's become a deplorable shadow of what he'd been in the past. Mr Manson, you're beat.

    The album is pretty good, don't know really why it's getting so much praise, especially for the lyrics... The lyrics in this album doesn't come anyway near, for and example Overneath the path of misery. And he repeath what he is saying half of the songs. I feel the lyrical part is the most boring thing with the album and probably why the album won't live as long as his classics. I mean Killing Strangers...buäh

    To have more than just a passing interest for a new MM album is a good sign these days... People aren't exaggerating when they say best since Holy Wood, I can imagine agreeing with that after it's all sunk in, the songwriting is really strong here, the lyrics are actually biting instead of just being teenage angsty.

    It's one of his best albums ever, together with Mechanical Animals
