Marilyn Manson Debuts Four New Songs Live in Budapest
Industrial shock rock legend Marilyn Manson last released Pale Emperor in 2015 to critical acclaim with many calling it one of the best of his career. This year is expected to see the release of the follow-up, Heaven Upside Down, and while details surrounding the album have been murky, fans now have something concrete to hold onto as four new songs were debuted at Budapest Open Air on July 20.
The set opened with "Revelation #12" (video below), per setlist.fm, swirling with mechanized abrasions that entertain subdued moments, only to set up the more bombastic elements of the track perfectly. The same goes for "Say10" (video above) and "We Know Where You F--king Live," (video below) while no footage of "1°" has surfaced as of this time.
The warm guitar tones recall some of the band's finest moments dating back to their earlier career, as Manson had already indicated. “[Heaven Upside Down] is, I would say, the last thing people would expect after hearing the previous album, The Pale Emperor. And it’s also, coming from the people who I’ve played it to, a combination of Antichrist Superstar and Mechanical Animals in feeling," the singer previously commented.
Fans had eagerly awaited the release of Say10 (the album's original title) on Valentine's Day, Feb. 14, earlier this year. Not much had been said in the weeks leading up to the holiday and it eventually came and went with no new album. Manson would later swap the title for Heaven Upside Down, but has yet to disclose a release date.
