Elizabeth Bathory, better known as the ‘Blood Countess,’ was a Hungarian countess infamous for allegedly bathing in the blood of virgins to keep her youthful good looks.
Manson says his latest album is the first he’s made that he actually likes to listen to.
It also has re-teamed him with his band’s original bassist Twiggy Ramirez, who left Manson to play with Nine Inch Nails and A Perfect Circle after the two had a spat in 2002.
Judging by his sly and deep laughter to a question about his love life, I’m sure he hasn’t become celibate.
Still, he insists he’s not just “damaged goods.” He’s not copping to seeing anyone in particular at the moment, but he had been dating actress Evan Rachel Wood until the two split in late 2008.
Directed by Erik Boccio, an award-winning director who has directed many videos for the moniker ‘Weirdfellas’, and written and produced by New Zealand-born Pandie Suicide (Seraphim Song, Vampire Summer), and beautifully photographed by cinematographer Evan Pesses, this is the second collaboration between this crew, with their first film MASSACRE, starring Pandie Suicide, Billy Morrison, London May, Jeordie White, Rob Patterson, Jeff Hilliard and Katy Foley also due out this year.
DEATHAUS FILMS announces the online release of “BLOOD BATH”, a bloody new horror short film that is a literal blood bath.
