"This will hurt you worse than me," promises Marilyn Manson on his brand new single, "No Reflection."
The first official release from his eighth full-length album, Born Villain, is classic Manson but with 21st century teeth. Dissonant industrial scraping quickly devolves into a neck-snapping riff as Manson's inimitable delivery takes hold and he announces "something violent coming." That violence comes in the form of a venomously irresistible arena-filling chorus. The song boasts an undeniable power that's patented for a mosh pit beatdown or an intense roll in the sack—pick your poison. At the same time, Manson's sardonic sense of humor remains intact as he asks, "Am I deaf or dead?"
A brooding bass line rumbles on the bridge as Manson proclaims, "You don't even want to know what I'm going to do to you."
We already know though. You're going to wonderfully kick our ass like you always do. Welcome back sir. You've been missed more than you know.
