Biography

Marilyn Manson is the title of a band led by and named after one of the most standout rockers in the history of music. Critics may rate Manson’s art differently, but it remains highly demanded at the youth market. Manson himself has managed through years proved that he is talented in many other spheres of arts apart from music, including painting and poetry. This musician was born Brian Warner in Canton, Ohio. Aged eighteen, he relocated to Tampa Bay where the young man found a job of music journalist. In 1989, he met the musician Scott Mitchell. At that time, they changed their names to Daizy Berkovitz and Marilyn Manson and formed the band Marilyn Manson & the Spooky Kids. Since Manson gradually grew into the only constant member and ultimate leader of the group, it shortly reduced its title just to his name only. Following the gothic-rock influences, the band began distributing tapes with their demos and giving gigs at local clubs. From the very start, Manson’s team stood away from the rest of the performers due to a very specific makeup and thoroughly designed stage effects. In 1992, the musicians replaced the drum-machine with a human drummer and made their sounding considerably heavier. The group was quick to draw attention and took about a year to become one of the Florida’s most influential acts.

1993 was the year when Manson and his fellows signed a contract with the label of Nine Inch Nails and performed several times to open this band’s concerts. Manson’s debut long player, called Portrait of an American Family, touched the market in 1994. This release was followed by a streak of impressive shows, Manson being considered an active promoter of Satanism for his actions and words on the stage. Many did nit take his behavior seriously, which did not hinder the rise of his popularity among the young minds. 1996 saw the release of the Smells Like Children EP, strongly backed by the cover of The Eurythmics song Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This). Soon, Berkovitz quit the band and left his duties to Zim Zum. Renewed, the group recorded a very proficient album, Antichrist Superstar, released in 1996 and placed under number three in the pop-charts. The more famous Marilyn Manson grew the harder where the attacks on him and his musicians from the part of religious organizations and strict censorship.

At the same time, Marilyn Manson’s promotion from underground to the heights of the mainstream culture questioned the ideology and sincerity of their music. Despite all this, Manson followed the course and released another top quality album, Mechanical Animals, in 1998. In 2000, the outfit prepared the long player under the title Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death) and spent the whole following year on the road promoting it. In the spring of 2003, Marilyn Manson and his formation topped the charts with the full-length record The Golden Age of Grotesque and remained there for a week. After that, Manson fought in the court his former partner Berkovitz who released a collection of the unreleased stuff they made together ling before. Manson lost the case. To strike back, he made his own compilation, Lest We Forget. This one featured the musician’s best compositions and the cover of Depeche Mode’s Personal Jesus, the track that granted the album with the golden status. In 2005, Manson announced that they had almost finished the preparation of the new studio effort, but the official release occurred only in two years. Manson wrote, performed and produced solely the largest part of the whole material. This meant practically that the band had turned in his solo project. The lineup of the musicians supporting his on the stage went once again through a transformation after one of the band’s oldest and most active members, Tim Scold, decided to go. He was replaced by Twiggy Ramirez who helped Manson pen the songs for the seventh studio album. Entitled The High End of Low, it became available in spring 2009.
