Single Slam – WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE by Marilyn Manson (Heaven Upside Down)


Needing no introduction, the shock rock legend that is Marilyn Manson has released a new single. That single is aggressively called WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE (caps lock included) and it will feature on Manson’s new album due out on the 6th of October. That album will be called Heaven Upside Down and you can see the full track list at the foot of this article.

Fresh from his outburst at pop queen Justin Bieber, Manson certainly seems to have a renewed fire and passion in his belly. It makes me really optimistic for the new album which will be his 10th and follows 2015’s The Pale Emperor. You can read our review of that by following the link.

FUCKING LIVE

WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE is 4 and a half minutes long. There is a huge amount of distortion on the guitars in the chuggy, slow paced intro riff. Manson sings softly but menacingly in his unmistakeable style as the drums and guitars pick up pace a little. The verses are relatively calm but are built by a sense of growing urgency from the instruments to a louder, shouted chorus. Manson sounds fine here – his voice is strong and the riff is solid and packed full of industrial/nu-metal feeling.

WE KNOW WHERE YOU FUCKING LIVE kind of reminds me of the Mechanical Animals sound a bit. Maybe less polished so it has the rawness of Antichrist Superstar but it is Mechanical Animals that I hear most. There is a lot of distortion, a load of effects and industrial sounding drums. It is nice to hear Manson spitting aggression though I must admit it doesn’t feel much like an evolution – more like more of the same really. It is very familiar, very Manson and while it is great that you can instantly know his music from a bar or two being played, it does mean that his music changes very little.

With that said though, I do like it. I love the aggression within and love to think of Manson back annoying parents and the populace with his violent, sexualised and shocking heavy metal. It doesn’t showcase a brand new sound or direction, instead it sounds like Manson just being Manson really.  There isn’t enough here to say that I love it. There is enough to seriously raise my hopes and expectations for the new album though.
