Marilyn Manson On Firing Jeordie “Twiggy Ramirez” White After Rape Allegation: “I Did Not Divorce Twiggy As A Friend Or Brother”

Marilyn Manson tells Kerrang! regarding his firing of Jeordie “Twiggy Ramirez” White from the band:

“I did not divorce Twiggy as a friend or brother, because I still care about him greatly. But I can’t say that my musical relationship with Twiggy has been good for several years. My relationship with Tyler Bates on ‘The Pale Emperor‘ made something open up in me and I didn’t want to let negative energy back in my life.

There were other people in my life that I thought were my friends that I had to cut out this year, a lot of betrayals that surprised me, and I had to clean house and adopt and new attitude. People mistook my kindness and generosity for weakness. So I kinda adapted this attitude, like, ‘If you fuck with me, there will be consequences.’ I have issues with intimacy. That might sound weird given that we’re lying in bed together, but y’know…”

Former Marilyn Manson/Jack Off Jill Guitarist Daisy Berkowitz Passes Away

Scott Mitchell Putesky, more famously known as Daisy Berkowitz, the co-founding guitarist of the Marilyn Manson (originally Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids,) and later of Jack Off Jill, has passed away according to a number of his friends and bandmates. A posting on the Jack Off Jill Facebook page stated; “Saying good bye to Scott, friend, band mate, artist , hero.. RIP Scott – “always touched by your presence dear.” Daisy Berkowitz.” An official cause of death has yet to be revealed but in 2013, Putesky was diagnosed with stage 4 colon cancer.

Putesky formed Marilyn Manson and the Spooky Kids in 1989 with the eponymous singer (AKA Brian Warner,) after meeting at an after party at the Reunion Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. He remained with the group recording the album, “Portrait of an American Family” and the EP “Smells Like Children,” before leaving halfway through the recording of “Antichrist Superstar” due to creative differences, though he does appear on the record. He would then join Jack Off Jill in 1998 and went on to record the album, “Covetous Creature” with the group and made a guest appearance with Godhead, before recording some albums with Three Ton Gate.

Comments vocalist Hasting:

“Much like our last record, we really tried to be diverse and establish a different mood for each song. You’ll see that same ideology is very present with ‘Vicious World‘. ‘Thorns‘ is the love child of Marilyn Manson and Advent, a song you can move and bang your head to, and just a small taste of how far we pushed ourselves on this new record. It’s been quite some time since MCMB has released music, and we’re extremely proud and excited for you all to bounce along with us to this song.”

Track list:

01 – “XeN0”
02 – “Act I: Elysium 77”
03 – “THORNS”
04 – “Act II: Sonar”
05 – “The Acrobat”
06 – “Act III: Wither”

Tombs, Goatwhore, Oni to appear at “Ozzfest Meets Knotfest” in November

– July 10th, 2017 –

On November 4th and 5th, Tombs, Goatwhore, and Oni will appear at “Ozzfest Meets Knotfest” at the Glen Helen Amphitheater & Festival Grounds. Joining them on the bill is Ozzy Osbourne, Rob Zombie, Marilyn Manson, among many others. For more information, please visit: or Tickets will go on sale on Friday, July 14th @ 10AM Pacific Time.

Tombs recently released their fourth full-length, The Grand Annihilation – the group’s most experimental record to-date. The blasting, scathing yet melodic black metal savagery of opener “Black Sun Horizon” and “Way Of The Storm” are very much built to destroy, while wielding a poignancy that is undeniable – both of which stand in strong contrast to the uncomfortable post-punk squall of “Underneath” that showcases front-man Mike Hill’s Nick Cave/Ian Curtis-esque singing voice, while the likes of the throbbing “Saturnalian” and unnerving tribal thunder of “Walk With Me In Nightmares” stand in categories all of their own. While every track on The Grand Annihilation stands separate from those around it, it is still a cohesive collection, and at no point do the stylistic twists and turns undermine its coherence. For more information, please visit:

Goatwhore‘s new, seventh full-length offering (and second recorded reel-to-reel!), Vengeful Ascension was captured at Earth Analog in Tolono, Illinois with longtime soundman and comrade Jarrett Pritchard (1349, Gruesome). A sonic manifestation of war, chaos, desolation, and emotional conflict, seamlessly bridging twenty years of the band’s signature brand of audio venom, Vengeful Ascension finds its members at their most accomplished both individually and as a cohesive unit. Guitarist Sammy Duet’s dense, sub nuclear riff work and possessed solo blitzes are at their most devastating, spiraling flawlessly and instinctually around drummer Zack Simmons’ and bassist James Harvey’s hammering rhythms, with front-man Ben Falgoust’s distinctly commanding roar, his acidic prose more enunciated than ever before, complimenting the apocalyptic proceedings. For more information, please visit:

With their influences rooted in progressive metal, Oni‘s sound can be compared to the genre’s heavy hitters – The Human Abstract, Protest The Hero and Between The Buried And Me – yet they remain truly unique. With Jake Oni handling vocal duties, Martin Andres and Brandon White on guitar, Chase Bryant on bass and Joe Greulich on drums, they are also perhaps the first metal band to feature a xylosynth player, Johnny D, which adds an intriguing dynamic to the nine songs found on their latest full-length, Ironshore. On the album track “The Only Cure”, Lamb Of God vocalist Randy Blythe also contributes his inimitable style – resulting in one of the record’s heaviest moments. For more information, please visit:
