The new single by Marilyn Manson, ‘No Reflection’, the first full track anyone (apart from those in the former king of shock-rockers’ inner circle) has heard from the band’s forthcoming eighth studio album, Born Villain. It debuted on LA radio station KROQ yesterday,
so of course a radio-rip has already found its way online. Check it out after the jump – though you better be quick, as it’s bound to get taken down before long. **UPDATE** Cooking Vinyl, the distributor through which Manson’s new, self-owned label, Hell, etc, operates, have now posted an official stream of the song now.
We’re not entirely sure what to make of it. Sure, it definitely sounds like a Marilyn Manson song, but we’re not entirely sure it’s exactly the kind of song that’s going to make that big of a splash. We guess Manson didn’t read our handy 6-step guide back to success that we offered him last year, huh? But enough about that – we want to know what YOU think about ‘No Reflection’.
Manson will, of course, be playing Sonisphere Festival later this Summer in the UK. By then we’ll have heard the entire of Born Villain, but he better come packing his hits and bringing his A-game if he wants British festival go’ers to forget that woeful performance of his at Download Festival 2009…
Shout out to Metal Injection for picking up on this radio-rip in the first place.
