Irresponsible Hate Anthem
The Beautiful People
Dried Up, Tied And Dead To The World
Angel With The Scabbed Wings
Minute Of Decay
The Reflecting God
Man That You Fear
The latest volley in industrial music's invasion of the mainstream, shock-rock band Marilyn Manson revels in the perverse, the unpleasant and the grotesque, championing hate, alienation and negativity with the same fervour with which happy-face troubadours of the '70s promoted sunshine, peace and happiness. The band's music owes a great deal to labelmates Nine Inch Nails, incorporating processed vocals, screeching electronics and enough bad attitude to bring even Norman Vincent Peale down. But rather than follow Trent Reznor down the path of sonic experimentation, Marilyn Manson establishes an unrelenting, grungy, guitar-driven attack that makes Ministry and The Butthole Surfers sound "unplugged".ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR is not an album for everyone. It is the aural equivalent of root canal without novocaine. Marilyn Manson creates a harsh, nightmarish soundscape to symbolise all that is evil and corrupt in contemporary society. There can be no such thing as a casual listen to ANTICHRIST SUPERSTAR's 16 scabrous tracks, and no listener will come away unscathed.

Dark, heavy and without a trace of commercialism

Manson's darkest album - the nearest to commercialism here is heavy hate chant The Beautiful People - just down and dirty, outright grit. This is when Manson was still being produced by Nine Inch Nails frontman Trent Reznor, and his presence here is undeniable, pure gold, makes the album.
This is also Manson's heaviest, the lyrics are dity, nasty, hateful and evil; the music is dark and crunchingly heavy in places. He covers metal, goth and industrial. The best moments are the superbly dark and sick Tourniquet and the morbid and poetic closing masterpiece Man That You Fear.
Also check out the very dark and arty videos to the singles and the album art you'll never tire of studying, one of Manson's best, definitely one for the hardcore fans.

The Ultimate Manson album, dirty and evil and clearly produced by the God of Industrial: Trent Reznor. Can't go wrong with a sick dude like manson and a productional genius as Trent. Had to buy this cd for a 2nd time, i ruined the 1st copy because of the scratches and dents it received in those years of usage. Bought in 1997 and still one of my all time favorites. Highly recommended!
