Marilyn Manson - Deep Six

by paul_guyet Rating:5 Release Date:2014-12-15

The first 21 seconds of 'Deep Six', the newest single from Manson's upcoming emission, The Pale Emperor, are good. Then, the vocals, drums, guitar and bass come in and that changes pretty deistically.

The first 'verse' and the fourth 'verse' are the same, as are the second and third 'verse'. Yes, there is grumpy, mush-mouthed mumbling. Yes, there is bad word-play, repeated ad infinitum ("You wanna know what Zeus said to Narcissus?/ You better watch yourself"). Get it? Huh? Get it? There's something somewhat appealing about the mantra towards the end, with Manson pushing his voice to new heights of agony at times, but whether that's good or not, I'm not going to hazard an opinion. 

This is, hands down, the most interesting thing we've heard from TPE thus far, including the first official single 'Third Day of a Seven Day Binge', 'Cupid Carries a Gun' (which was used for the opening credits of Salem), and 'Killing Strangers' (which was featured in the recent Keanu Reeves blood orgy, John Wick). That isn't saying very much.

The Pale Emperor begins his reign of mediocrity January 19. Hear 'Deep Six', pre-order the standard or deluxe album (featuring three bonus tracks) or the hilarious, limited edition 'definitive box' here, and mitigate your expectations.
