SKOLD To Release “Anomie” On May 10th; Tim Skold’s First Album In 15 Years

February 23, 2011 by  
Filed under Daily Music News

Whether you remember him from Marilyn Manson, Shotgun Messiah, KMFDM, or OhGr, Tim Skold is back!  Ready to realese his first album in 15 years SKOLD will release Anomie on May 10th.

SKOLD on Anomie:
“It really is completely self indulgent wankery, but that goes for just about every record I’ve ever liked. I don’t want people to expect anything from me, I promise only to remain defiantly and completely untrustworthy.”

“To me, Anomie definitely feels like a continuation (of his 1996 self-titled solo album), but since I spent a lot of time doing other things, it is, for all intents and purposes, a new beginning,” Tim continues. A fully self-sufficient recording entity, SKOLD is a very personal project and Anomie was something that fulfills his own personal desires. “I really like the word ‘anomie’ and think it applies to me both on a personal and creative level but most of all I think it describes my music and how I make my music. There is absolutely no collaboration on this album whatsoever. The ‘drummer’ (me) hates the ‘guitar player’ (me). The ‘singer’ (me) refuses to do more than one take and the ‘bass player’ (me) is out doing other shit while the ‘Producer’ (me) really just wants to kill them all. It’s a very sick affair.”

The album is set for release either as a 12-track CD or digital download (that you can pre-order here) or as a digital deluxe version with two bonus tracks (that you can pre-order here).

John 5

April 23, 2010 by  
Filed under Interviews

Although most of us familiarize the painted face of John 5 with his time in Marilyn Manson or his current gig with Rob Zombie, John 5’s guitar roots run deep.  He picked up the guitar at age seven and rumor has it no one has seen him without a guitar in his hands since.  

 On May 11th John 5 offers up his new solo album “The Art of Malice”;  a diverse yet cohesive collection of songs that depict his versatility and love for genre-bending with his tool of the trade.  With sounds spanning from rock to country to flamenco to bluegrass John 5 offers up a technically mind-blowing instrumental cd with deeply personal songs that chronicle his life. 

From the song “JW”, the nickname that his Dad called him growing up to “Can I live Again” a gut-wrenching song inspired by losing those around us and finding the will to go on to his personal homage to some of his friends and mentors  in music, Ace Frehley and David Lee Roth, in “Fractured Mirror” and “Ya Dig”.  Listening to this album from start to finish will give you a very intimate look into who John 5 is not only as a guitar player but as a person, his personality drives the songs while his guitar techniques continue to set new standards.

 John 5’s current day job is on stage shredding with Rob Zombie.  You can catch them live right now on a short co-headlining tour with Alice Cooper followed up by Rob Zombie’s headlining stint on the 2010 Mayhem Fest. We recently caught up with John 5 to talk about his new album, Zombie, Mayhem Fest and more.

Manson is now streaming his new album on his MySpace page.

Marilyn Manson has recently released his video for “Arma-Goddamn-Motherf*ckin-Geddon,” the first single from his forthcoming album The High End of Low. The video, which was shot with 30-40 cameras yet only contains footage from two of them, is no less shocking than what fans have come to expect from the shock-rocker with fire, narcissism, bikini clad protestors, and a load of F-bombs.
