The Antichrist Superstar, the legend and its present incarnation, was engendered in response to increasing world tension. Mr Marilyn Manson, one of very few in a position to convey a message of impending doom has taken it upon himself with the aid of his well-trained associates, namely: Twiggy Ramirez, Madonna Wayne Gacy, Ginger Fish and latest incarnate Zim Zum, to do so.
Marilyn Manson would like all to heed the words of the following passage taken from the doctrines of 'Antichrist Superstar'.
"We have combined Hebrew Kabalism, numerology, narcotics and computer technology to create a musical ritual to bring about the apocalypse. Whether it is an Armageddon of the subconscious or destruction of the world as we know it, is up to the listener to decide."
The Antichrist is the perfect villain. To many, so is Mr Manson. Both characters elusive, asymmetrical and dangerously potent. Both catalysts to the self-examination of American values. Both prophets of their own telling and both legends. With 'Antichrist superstar' having come to its fruition, on the eve of its finest hour, one question remains: Is Marilyn Manson the Antichrist? And the answer is no. He's a superstar.
