** This Classic Album was recorded and released before the allegations against Brian Warner (AKA Marilyn Manson) were made known publicly on 1st February 2021. This podcast has always been about celebrating the art rather than the artist and Riot Act do not condone any of the alleged actions. **
In the second episode of our Classic Album series we let Steve make his first entry. His initial pick is Marilyn Manson’s commercial breakthrough from 1996, Antichrist Superstar. He and Remfry are joined by Metal Hammer magazine editor and Manson superfan Merlin Alderslade to talk through the album itself, from its build up and inception, the fraught recording process and the records, oddly prophetic, concept and narrative. Before digging into the critical and commercial reception the album received, and the resulting controversy that it stirred up, from middle America to court rooms to Ozzfest stages, which contributed to making Marilyn Manson into one of the biggest stars of the 90s.
