Album Review : Marilyn Manson – The Pale Emperor

Review by Wezzy Crüze – www.wezzycruze.com
Marilyn Manson2015 is off to a raging start, as we see the release of The Pale Emperor, the latest LP from controversial media personality and shock rock pioneer, Marilyn Manson.

The album poses as a real return to form for Manson, the “Anti-Christ Superstar” going above and beyond previous efforts to deliver an album that fans familiar to his work will not only appreciate, but feel the energy and rawness that some felt has been missing for a lengthy period.

While The Pale Emperor see long time member and musical collaborator Twiggy Ramirez (Jeordie White) absent from the writing and recording procedure (for unknown reasons), we’re introduced to Tyler Bates as he is welcomed to the fold as Manson’s new creative partner.

We caught up with AREA-7 Keyboardist DJ to chat about Soundwave Festival 2015, touring and the year ahead.

You’re playing at Soundwave 2015. What are you most looking forward to about the festival?

Oh that’s easy… touring, playing on huge stages, seeing other acts. playing to people who have never seen us and hoping to give our regular fans a highlight festival show.

What’s your favourite/least favourite festival experience?

Only ‘least favourite’ I can think of is not playing more festivals! Favourite’s are Main stage St Kilda Festival, sun setting over the beach as a backdrop and a sea of thousands’n’thousands of people out front. Also, as last band on at Warped tour on the Gold Coast, it’s pissing down and the show is running behind, they’ve gotta get everything to the next show so the crew are packing the stage up around us. We’re getting rained on, most of the stage was down before we finished and ran straight in to the bus to the next show.
