Marilyn Manson Unveils Grimy Video for ‘Third Day of a Seven Day Binge’
Marilyn Manson is one of the undisputed masters of the music video. Though the MTV days may be over, the Antichrist Superstar continues to release captivating visuals, this time for his single "Third Day of a Seven Day Binge."
Manson's "Third Day of a Seven Day Binge" has been praised as one of his modern crown jewels and one of the standout tracks from his 2015 full-length, The Pale Emperor. The track is the result of a new wave / blues concoction Manson had been playing with prior to recording The Pale Emperor, and we find the man's final potion intoxicating.
Instead of going the direct route by getting a character to lock himself inside a seedy hotel room with blackout curtains drawn while loading up on drugs, Manson simply appears in a smoke-filled space in front of a bright light. It's almost like Manson is personifying a grime-filled meth pipe, presenting fingers and a face covered with silver ash.
Short bursts of a blue lit scene will pop up occasionally as well with Manson sporting one of his newest accessories; a metal nose guard. A few more versions of Marilyn Manson will show themselves more heavily near the end, so check it out and craft your own interpretations of what the video may mean.
