Early Years of Marilyn Manson
His teachers at Heritage Christian School advised him on the genres of music that were impure and blasphemous. On occasion, they would play what they deemed to be “wrong” music. The young Brian Warner first heard this genre of music and immediately fell in love with it.
In college after receiving his high school diploma in 1987, Warner studied journalism. Later, he conducted interviews with a number of performers, including Groovie Mann and Trent Reznor, who served as early influences on his own musical career. The latter performer—a member of Nine Inch Nails turned out to have the most influence on Warner. Later, Reznor worked with Manson to develop his debut album.
Early Musical Career of Marilyn Manson
Brian Warner and his friend Scott Putesky founded their first band in the late 1980s. The two came up with theatrical names for themselves that combined serial killers and Hollywood sex symbols. Putesky took on the personas of Daisy Berkowitz and Brian Warner took on the persona of Marilyn Manson, a cross between Marilyn Monroe and Charles Manson. Later, the group adopted the name, Marilyn Manson.
Early on, Marilyn Manson swiftly lost the ability to perform in specific places.
Marilyn Manson Breakthrough
Eventually, Trent Reznor developed a personal interest in Marilyn Manson and produced Portrait of an American Family, their debut studio album. Antichrist Superstar has a price, though. Heavy drug usage caused conflict within the band, and original member Daisy Berkowitz abruptly left during the recording of the album. The band also came under greater pressure from a number of activist groups, some of which even went so far as to demonstrate at the band’s performances. Marilyn Manson was the focus of a congressional hearing after a fan killed himself.
The band’s next album, Mechanical Animals, was released in 1998, and it changed their sound. Marilyn Manson explored themes of excess, celebrity society, and femininity while drawing from Glam Rock. Despite the absence of Daisy Berkowitz from the group, the record received excellent reviews and went platinum. Holy Wood from 2000 wasn’t as commercially successful, but it was nonetheless highly regarded by critics and did remarkably well abroad. This album heralded the group’s return to its industrial metal sound. Although he vehemently denied having any influence over the attackers, Marilyn Manson was at this time famously connected to the 1999 Columbine school tragedy.
Born Villain: a return to the fundamentals with an incredibly powerful sound was released by Marilyn Manson in 2012. Again, reviews of the record were inconsistent. The Pale Emperor released their CD the next year in 2015, and reviewers hailed it as the best in decades. In addition, many magazines named it the year’s top album. The album completely changed the direction of Manson’s style, moving away from his heavy metal roots and toward a blues and rock sound. With the release of Heaven Upside Down, an album with incredibly harsh lyrics and a hard punk aesthetic, Manson carried on this great trend in 2017.
