Singer Marilyn Mansion has a new album out called The Pale Emperor. It's his ninth studio record, but it's his first released on old PlayStation discs.
Love those black PlayStation discs
Does any realize that ps1 disc's were actually really dark purple and not black.
the dark purple are playstation 2 CD game discs. original PS1 game discs are black. and actually you could buy CD-R's in various colors. i used to work for a company that sold them with not only the black data layer but also green, blue and red. The tops were all silver so you could write on them or apply your own label but the data layer was a solid color.
Ps2 cd-rom was purple. Then the normal ps2 dvds are the regular look you are used too.
ps1 black or silver,although mine was greeny silver cos it was chipped lol. ps2 was purple or silver.
PS2 CD Game = Blue surface. (its a stretch to call it purple) PS2 DVD Game = Silver surface PS1 CD Game = "black" (dark purple if you held it up to the light)
Speaking of the albumn, I picked this up and it's pretty decent. Also the PS1 disc version has 4 bonus tracks not on the standard CD version.
Those were my favorite discs. Not even kidding one of my smackdown games was missing a huge chunk of the disc but the game worked only some intros were missing audio or video.
Wow nostalgia hit: You guys remember going to blockbuster on rare occasions and taking back a disc cause someone scratched the sht outta it? XD HAHAHA! Man the 90's! I'm glad I was a part of it ^_^
Lent FF7 to someone back in the day. Got it back with giant chunks missing from the disc. The ending would be a sloppy mess. Never understood how people scratched discs so badly.
Hell when I was younger, I remember the scorn I had felt forwards my pops when I saw that he was using my tekken 3 disk as an ash tray.
@sub for me my nephew tried closing it and on the PS1 the top comes down and closes and he smashed it and at least 15% of the disc got broke off and I was mad but the game worked fine. Blurays are amazing though. I dont even take care of them thats how good they are.
I remember when the PS1 first released it was actually a pretty big thing. When I first saw it, I thought it was the coolest thing ever(I was 16). I later came to find out they did this to help prevent people copying the discs since they used a zero sum sector, and the dark coating prevented people from being able to see where it was located on the disc.
Haha! I rented a copy of FF Tactics so damaged the game always stopped at Velious. How annoying. I purchased my own copy of the game months later to find out Velious was not the final boss! Loool! Still got the game on my collection. I seriously miss the 90'.
I like the idea of releasing a disc this way. I liked them back in the day too. Superb sound off these things
He should have been offered the role for joker
Why is the article picture a pic of the new Joker?
bahahahahahaha...thx for that!
Guess you weren't informed about how the new joker looks nothing like that.
I guess you were never taught how to take a joke
You do realize they decided to change the look AFTER the backlash right?
Wrong, it was never the planned look, they showed clips from on set with him in outfit. No tattoos, but go ahead and keep believing your facebook posts that constantly hold no grounds.
Someones a little grumpy Die hard Dc DC fan by any chance?
A lot of butt hurt over a joke...just wow.
Honestly I could accept this as the new Joker than Jared Leto's Juggalo Joker.....ugh it's the worst.
Funny....bubble Was going to post something similar haha
Absolutely love Manson. But I'm not a big fan of The Pale Emperor. Solid, but hugely disappointing by his standards.
Not me, i thought pale emperor was amazing
Ugh, this brings up memories of the goth fad i was into during my teen years... So awkward.
The beautifull people is probably the only song I ever liked from him.
I'm really digging his character on sons of anarchy.
Great show, he's a key character at the end too
Can't wait to watch the last season of that :) or two, I haven't watched in a while, so no spoilers! :D that's interesting he's in that
You like poetry?
Dude! Just finished the series while reading this haha... AMAZING! And yeah marilyn Manson's character is funny, though the guy has always freaked me out as he is pretty fuckin weird lol ripping bibles and shit
The Pale Emperor is Manson's best album since Anti-Christ......my favorite album of 2015 thus far.
Dope show and sweet dreams i think its called are two of my favorite MM songs. Being Black and growing up in the hood its hard to like music other than Rap/Hip Hop. But Manson and Korn are secretly two of my favorite bands.
I'm black also.love me some MM,Mechanical Animals with The Dope Show is on of his best albums ever.I listen to everything but rap & country.
It shouldn't be "hard to like", but I understand how difficult it could be to express that with friends. I am also black and my musical tastes run the gambit. About the only thing that I couldn't really get into was the Dub-step craze. Though, there were a couple of songs that I liked of that as well. In the end, you like what you like. No shame in having some guilty pleasure music for yourself!
Man his rendition of Sweet Dreams is too awesome. Love the dark undertone, and the video still freaks me out.
You know what, I give it to him. Thats some great PR. I might just buy this album and check it out. oh and @BlkxSeptember I hear you. I'm Hispanic and I love me some MM. My friends had to put up with it, that's all.
How people can listen to this stuff is beyond me. Believe me,I've tried. Each to there own I guess
It's complicated, non-user friendly music. But his music is beautiful. I don't see how anyone who listens to it with an open mind can possibly dislike it. Songs like Long Hard Road Out of Hell, Tainted Love, Sweet Dreams, Coma Black, etc., are just beautiful imo. If you give him another chance try the albums Mechanical Animals, Hollywood, and Antichrist Superstar, as well as the songs I just listed. His first and last albums are only so-so but everything else is good. @BlkSeptember: Korn and Manson are my two favorite bands. Korn actually got good again and Follow the Leader is my alltime favorite album.
I prefer the original versions of Tainted Love and Sweet Dreams, and much prefer his non-cover songs. :)
He does have some good music and I agree about Korn. They're finally getting back to the heavier ways of old. I like it And about covers I think Manson does well with his. I do like the originals too as I'm a big fan of 80s music
Complicated?,quite the opposite to my ears.
People said the same thing about Beethoven (he wasn't heralded immediately as a genius), Jazz, Rock and Roll, and Hip Hop. I guess that's why there are so many different genres and sub-genres of music...something for everybody.
I'm not a huge fan of his, although he actually does seem rather intelligent and not evil like some people try to make him out to be. I was never a big fan of the content of his lyrics, but the music itself is absolutely brilliant. It's not always traditional, but it can move you, which is what music should do. He's 1000X better than most of the tripe that wins awards and gets endless praise nowadays.
Love some MM...Mechanical Animals is his best album ever it was a homage to legendary David Bowie.
weird,says he uses playstation disc but they turn white when spun do to new thermal tech,so basically these are not playstation disc at all.
Because that's the era that his music should have stayed in.
The PS1 discs were as unique as you can get. The Silver Label (PlayStation Hits) looked classy.
In the 90's, Black discs meant it was a Playstation game. No other game console at the time used dyed discs like Sony did. They was no mistaking a ps1 game for a bootleg back then, it definitely gave it a sort of problem unique vibe. If I recall, Jay-Z's watch the throne was black too. Pleasant surprise that was yeah.

@subtenko the 90's was the best years for gaming, no memories from latter years gens can ever beat the time your gaming whilst growing up
