7/10

Ever since his first album was released in 1994, Marilyn Manson has been no stranger to controversy; from picketers protesters at his first appearance at the Big Day Out in 1999 to his well-publicised relationships and just recently his little ‘beef’ with Bieber. This latest track, the first single We Know Where You Fucking Live from his yet to be released album Heaven Upside Down, will be no different and is bound to strike up a lot of controversy with its NSFW video.

Listening to the song itself, the first thing that you think is Manson is BACK. The song is intense, brilliant, wrong, catchy, dark and with lyrics like “what’s a nice place like this; doing round people like us” and “I love the sound of shells hitting the ground” it’s going to strike a chord somewhere deep within. Whether that’s fear, anger, love/hate of Manson or just incites the need to get into a moshpit and go crazy will be up to the individual but for me? Bring on that pit and bring on the new album!

And that video? Well… when the first thing that you see is a Parental Advisory Warning which mentions depictions of sex and violence, you know that it’s going to be pretty out there. And for someone who watches a lot of horror movies, this video skirts with that line of what is ‘comfortable’ to watch. Viewer discretion is indeed something that you need to listen to, particularly if you have an issue with sex and violence… perpetrated by nuns. Just don’t say that we didn’t warn you.
