JUICE - 1998

"Antichrist Superstar was about stripping away emotions, about me trying to believe in myself, and it took going through a lot of different pain to get there. After that, I had to have somewhere to go from there, and it was like starting all over. The feeling I get from this record is the exact opposite of the last record, because this is about getting back all of your feelings and being in a world that really doesn't have any."

LIQUID - 1998

"True art is conceived and born in great pain. It's a combination of pain, craziness, confusion, drugs and of sex! It has to be your lifestyle, you have to live and breathe it. And you can't just pretend that you live it. If you're not really into it and believe less than 100% in what you do, then it's impossible. We have to feel, breathe and live it! If we're not 100% in it, then we create a monster that comes back to haunt us!"

KERRANG! - 1998

"Moving to Hollywood, I experienced a rebirth. I'd stripped away all my emotions in the past and I started to get them back. Living in this strange city I felt almost like a child or an alien, and the more I got my emotions back, the more I saw that the rest of the world had less and less. I started seeing people as the mechanical animals I talk about on the record."

CMJ NEW MUSIC - 1998

"I was imagining Omega to be the most exaggerated extension of what the Antichrist Superstar was, everything that glam rock has ever been and then some. To me glam rock has always meant a very sarcastic and over-the-top flamboyant image that was hiding something that was darker and more depressing underneath. That was always the irony of glam rock to me. A lot of people never really looked beneath that."

KERRANG! - 1999

"I think I've discovered my key to whatever's going to happen next. I was pushing myself to find it with Antichrist Superstar, and I think Mechanical Animals was kind of me criticising myself. I was mocking myself, and that's something that people will have missed about the Omega character on that record."
