Marilyn Manson said in a interview with chanel 4 news (2017) that Saturnilia is his favorite song from the album and that "The song will affect your brain chemistry."
He said that when he and Tyler Bates were writing the song that they "channeled" the music of their youth
Saturnalia was an ancient Roman festival in honour of the god Saturn, held on 17 December of the Julian calendar and later expanded with festivities through to 23 December.
The holiday was celebrated with a sacrifice at the Temple of Saturn, in the Roman Forum, and a public banquet, followed by private gift-giving, continual partying,
and a carnival atmosphere that overturned Roman social norms: gambling was permitted, and masters provided table service for their slaves.
