Checked out Kerrang! today, MM got a small mention and photo with the Sonisphere announcements, but then on the page on the back of that was a Motionless In White interview where they talk about Marilyn Manson briefly. Thought I would share that, some might be interested in it.

When I read ''I don't want to meet Marilyn Manson'' and saw Tim Skold's picture, it was instantly in my mind: ''oh, I bet it has something to do with Skold's bitching''. But turns out it was not. :)
Thanks for sharing.

I actually already knew this band cites Manson as an influence because my friend's a big fan of theirs and knows I'm a big fan of Manson, so she told me haha.
I think having bands like MIW and The Pretty Reckless open for Manson is an attempt to turn a younger audience onto Manson.

This band definitely aren't something I enjoy. I'm sure they're all nice-hard-working-people-etc.-etc.-etc., but the music sounds predictable and shit to me.
I think when bands like Nine Inch Nails, Marilyn Manson and White Zombie were re-interpreting extreme influences from their childhoods; Ministry, Skinny Puppy, Alien Sex Fiend, RevCo - there weren't any godawful subgenres like Screamo to confuse it with, which is what this band seem to have done. Although always interesting to explore on subsidiary levels, discussion of far-right Christianity in rock music was taken to its natural conclusion by Marilyn Manson, whereas these doing it seems incendiary for the wrong reasons, and derivative. The other themes in a few songs I listened to this afternoon, well, your guess is as good as mine what they're going on about.

Ah well, it was just a tour slot. I think to date the only Manson support act I'd either enjoyed before the package was arranged, or who I'd enjoy separately was Peaches.

I think it's a transparent case of tour organisers picking the closest bankable thing they can for a support act and running with it, but that's nothing new, for Marilyn Manson or most bands. Unless it's specifically designed as such, there are few International tours that were built specifically on a personal or artistic relationship.
