7 Horribly Scary Manson Videos...

Ah, Halloween Night is upon us again, but before you go to off to the land of dreams there´s not better thing than a good scare.

Over the past sixteen years we´ve seen some very disturbing scene in Marilyn Manson´s universe, but can you recall the most mind-blowing, creepiest and spookiest experiences ever?

1. Dope Hat, Smells Like Children, 1995.

What starts off as an innocent tribute to Willy Wonka´s legendary boat ride turns into a horrible nightmare. Come to think of it, the boat ride was already super creepy.

 2. Sweet Dreams (are made of these), Smells Like Children, 1995.

Oh dear, who ever thought the new wave 80s  Eurythmics hit could turn into a modern goth anthem? Only Manson knew better. Here´s one of our personal favorites featuring ghouly makeup, Manson in drag and an overgrown cute pig.

3.  The Beautiful People, Antichrist Superstar, 1996.

There´s nothing beautiful about this video, and that´s the greatest thing about it. What seems like a silent protest to cosmetic surgery obsessed Hollywood and Christianity has become one of Manson´s best videos of all time.

4. Disposable Teens, Holywood, 2000.

"A rebel from the waist down."

These lyrics did lift some eyebrows back in the days. The opening sequence of this videos features an in incredibly tall Manson emerging from a black lagoon and powerful esoteric imagery.

5.  The Nobodies, Holywood, 2000.

Based loosely on The City Of Lost Children (or so they say)  this is one that tots might find incredibly scary.

6. mOBSCENE, The Golden Age Of Grostesque, 2003.

Think a 30s Burlesque inspired video isn´t scary? Think again.

7. Putting Holes In Happiness, EAT ME, DRINK ME, 2007

Inspired by the imagery from Fritz Lang´s "M", the video also explores the everlasting subject of vampirism that we all love, but kiddies beware...

"Grey Daisy" Up For Auction

According to

MARILYN MANSON fans can buy a piece of the shock rocker's original artwork this Halloween (31Oct10) - his famed Grey Daisy painting is set for auction.
The watercolor painting, one of his most documented and widely-recognised artworks, is set to be sold at The Gods 'n Metal Monsters Auction, which will showcase over 500 rare pieces of rock memorabilia.
It was originally unveiled and sold to a private collector at the rocker's very first art exhibit in 2002, called The Golden Age of Grotesque.
Manson previously called the painting his only "nice" artwork, telling MTV News: "Someone said, 'Why don't you ever paint something nice like a flower?' so I painted one, but I ended up using only the dirty water from another painting. If I wasn't me, I would probably want this one."
Manson's art has proved popular among private collectors and celebrities. His Harlequin Jack and the Absinthe Bunny was purchased by Jack Osbourne and Red Hot Chili Peppers' bassist Flea picked up Elizabeth Short as Snow White at the 2002 exhibit.
The Grey Daisy auction, held online at, will run through 7 November (10).

They might be referring to this little cute painting:

Who wants it?

My, my, my, how long has it been since we haven´t posted anything?

We snatched these brand new studio photographs taken by Perou, who has become one of Marilyn Manson´s best allies when it comes to style. The UK based photographer has worked previously in promos made for The Golden Age Of Grotesque, EAT ME, DRINK ME, and now for this new untitled album.

What has changed in these last few years for Marilyn Manson since 1996 when Christians roared at his provocative concerts? Well, the makeup´s still there, however this recent pic shows a very interesting effect that resembles body art. It seems like part of Manson´s face looks literally like it was hand painted.

 This next one displays some white wave patterns very similar to the ones used for the poster art for Magic Vs Science; a past event where Manson appeared briefly as The Evil Magician.

Poster art for "Magic Vs Science, 2010"
Do these waves represent anything in particular, or is just a graphic design coincidence?

This next one is visually beautiful, reminiscent of some pics done by Delaney Bishop for The High End Of Low.

Notice how Manson carries a neon light in hand.

So how can we possibly label this new style? A long time ago the term heavy metal was said to be fashioned by a critic after listening to a Jimi Hendrix concert quoting,

  "listening to heavy metal falling from the sky." 

Judging from the latest pictures there certainly seems to be an impressive level of minimalism compared to the mid-90s and 2000s eras where glam and shocking imagery invaded MTV and rock magazines. We hopes that this goes hand in hand with the new sound.

More to come...
