The famous theme song to M.A.S.H., Johnny Mandel's "Suicide Is Painless," has received the cover treatment by Marilyn for the "Book Of Shadows: Blair Witch 2." soundtrack will hit stores on Manson's vanity label, Posthuman Records, October 17th. The complete song with lyrics was heard in the hit 1970 film M.A.S.H, and then an instrumental version was used for legendary television series based on the film. 

The soundtrack will also feature previously released tracks from Queens Of The Stone Age, Rob Zombie, System Of A Down, and U.P.O. as well as a new song from Godhead titled "The Reckoning." 

Marilyn will release his new full length CD titled "Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of
Death)" on November 14th. (originally set for a Halloween release). A tour in support of the CD will kick off on Oct. 27 in Minneapolis.
