Marilyn Manson - a shocking personality
Initially, the group performed at the opening of the Nine Inch Nails team. Trent Reznor liked the young band, he became friends with the musicians and became their informal mentor. To the forefront, the group and its leader, Marilyn Manson, moved rather quickly, all thanks to a well-designed advertising campaign. At the same time, all the musicians of the team remained in the shadows. The group's logo was rather peculiar: it contained the inscription “MARILYN MANSON” in a “dripping” font in the style of a horror movie, Monroe’s tender look was placed above and Charles Manson’s insane below.Immediately released souvenirs with the image, advertised the group and numerous colleagues, journalists, Brian.
The group began to accompany the performances with various attractions. The musicians used everything that could somehow strengthen the impression of the audience: sandwich with peanut butter that flew from the stage, girls crucified on the stage or sitting in cages, goat heads, nudity, as well as open flames on the stage.
