Review by Trish Boer

45-second excerpt from "Irresponsible Hate Anthem" (351 Kb .au file)

I saw this really cool Marilyn Manson shirt, once, and it had a freaky dead-type guy on the front. On the back it said, "I am the god of fuck."

That's pretty bold.

I would have bought it, but where was I going to be brave enough to wear it?

So I got my friend to buy it.


So anyway, the new album: very angst-ridden. Some of the words used repeatedly are:

Antichrist Superstar really rocks my world. It's great to blast through the hi-fi. It's quite industrial and well-engineered, and if I hadn't gotten this piece of art for free, I definitely would have used my hard-earned cash to obtain it.

And let me tell you something about this band: THEY ARE ALL SEXY. There is something to be said about looking dead...

Sooo, if you love dead people and great music, then this one's a keeper.
