I believe Marilyn Manson is on the number one spot, if we calculate how many posts on The Blek Goat are dedicated to him. No, I am not obsessively addicted to him and neither is he my favorite artist. Why am I posting so much of Manson up here is because normally there is so much negativity written on the web when he puts out something new. I seriously do not know what is wrong with people to talk shit about his music. Ever since he released his newest album The Pale Emperor I really started getting into his music. I was listening to him every so often back in the days, but with the release of PE, I am pretty much listening to Marilyn Manson on a regular basis.
It was just yesterday when the new music video for “The Mephistopheles Of Los Angeles” was released and both, song and video are awesome. I really find it funny how I needed a dozen years to start loving his music. Not that I hated Marilyn Manson in my early heavy metal years, he just was not my thing. And oh yeah, his music sure is my thing nowadays.
P.S. I may take all the hateful stuff I read on the web a bit too personally, but hey, it just is stupid seeing people talking shit about something. I said it already many times and I’ll say it again, if it isn’t your cup of tea, don’t listen to it and most importantly, don’t talk crap about it.
Now go and enjoy this new video from Marilyn Manson.
