Both Marilyn Manson and the Smashing Pumpkins are highly associated with the ’90s alt-rock boom, but both bands are making a few of the strongest music of their careers right now. Marilyn Manson’s album The Pale Emperor was released in January to important honor: Wanderer said the album was the band’s “best, most twisted alt-rock party in years.” A month previously, the Smashing Pumpkins released Monoliths to an Elegy, which All Music called “surprising” and “occasionally amazing,” and The Guardian said “returns to the hallmark Pumpkins noise.”
For these 2 titans of ’90s hard rock to explore together would have been quite incredible in 1996, but it’s nearly as interesting now, with both bands armed with decades of material to draw from. Naturally, that consists of classic-era hits, like Marilyn Manson’s “The Beautiful People,” “Sweet Dreams (Are Made from This)” and “The Dope Program” and the Pumpkins’ “Bullet With Butterfly Wings,” “Cherub Rock” and “Absolutely no.” However it’s likewise most likely to include plenty of strong new songs, together with the periodic deep cut.
Both Marilyn Manson’s name frontman and Smashing Pumpkins mastermind Billy Corgan have actually sustained their share of debate through the years, and while both males are still more than going to speak their minds, nowadays their main focus is on the music. The bands’ joint tour is called the End Times Tour, however for both bands, there’s no need to believe that there’s any end in sight.
