Earlier today I have covered the other headliner of the 2015 edition of the Graspop Metal Meeting. Which headliner closes off this first day is still unknown, but it doesn’t really matter does it? Because Marilyn Manson can give you a good time as well.
Whereas KISS, the other headliner, are a band that have begun in the early 1970’s and have conquered the music industry straight through the ’70, ’80 and the ’90, Marilyn Manson is a relatively younger player of the industry. But with his mostly industrial and alternative rock and metal he is a completely different musician.
With albums like Mechanical Animals, Antichrist Superstar and Portrait Of An American Family, Manson already has a quite grotesque discography.
It’s always a bit difficult to talk about “hits”, but with the popular ‘Mechanical Animals’, a cover of Eurythmics ‘Sweet Dreams’ and ‘The Beautiful People’ this man has achieved a lot in his career.
The biggest risk? Marilyn Manson was the last act on Graspop a couple of years ago and it was terrible. Many heavy metal media crowned the show with the dubious honor of “Worst Show Of The Festival”. Let’s hope he does better this year.
Also, Marilyn Manson’s new album ‘The Pale Emperor’ will be out on the 19th January in Europe and the 20th of January on the USA.
