Marilyn Manson Got The Blues For The Pale Emperor
Asked what he'd done differently on The Pale Emperor compared to earlier records, Manson tells Loudwire: "Maybe partially learning the whole point of the blues on the record. One part being about the story of the creation of the blues with Mephistopheles and Faust, and making a deal with the devil to become a rock star.
"The record has me singing in a blues range, which I've never done before. The blues to me came way late in the game and it was more about you telling your story - but you're telling your story in a way that everyone who hears it is sharing the story with you so they're going to hear the story differently.
"The blues is the same story, but it's told by different people in the way you say it, the timbre of your voice or your good or bad deal you've made with the devil."
Meanwhile, footage of Manson's performance at the Rock Am Ring festival in Germany last weekend has been released and can be viewed here.
