MARILYN MANSON has completed work on 11 songs for their upcoming album, which is currently being recorded at a Los Angeles studio for a tentative late spring/early summer release through Nothing/Interscope Records. According to the singer, [the new material] has no resemblance to what most critical prophets of the identity-free forum [i.e. MARILYN MANSON's official message board] are expecting.I am glad you will all be here to join me on this trip to the only society that matters and that is the society of oneself. I miss the stage and I will be heading for it soon enough. But it's going to be something else my darling ones. As previously reported, the as-yet-untitled album is reportedly being co-produced by MANSON and Tim Skold (KMFDM, ex-SHOTGUN MESSIAH) and is said to be inspired by groups like MINISTRY, BIG BLACK, NITZER EBB and French writer Marquis de Sade. An appearance by SLIPKNOT drummer Joey Jordison (on guitar, no less), among other guests, is expected.
