Over the last few years, Marilyn Manson has gone away from the Antichrist Superstar imagery that made him so popular. Instead, he's opted to dive into the grotesque, not this time though!
The Mephistopheles of Los Angeles is the fourth single off of his album The Pale Emperor, and it's pretty true to the song's theme.

According to the Faust legend, Mephistopheles is a demon who collects souls that are already damned. This of course explains Manson's return to using themes from Catholicism in his video.
When we say it's dark, we mean it! But it's also got a short film vibe to it, thanks to cameos from Boardwalk Empire's Michael K. Williams and director Francesco Carrozzini, who also did Nicki Minaj's The Pinkprint short film.

and his father are giving the OTHER infamous Manson Family a run for their money when it comes to odd behavior.

The duo rocked the same pale white goth foundation, black eye shadow, fake lashes, and blood red lipstick.

Marilyn Manson has never been one to shy away from controversy throughout his career, but even he's gotta draw the line somewhere!
Last month, a bizarre clip surfaced on the web depicting horror director Eli Roth raping Lana Del Rey, but nobody seemed to know where the video came from or what its intended use was.

Marilyn was immediately linked to the disturbing footage due to the fact that it was edited together with clips from some of his previous music videos. However, the singer is finally speaking out about the bizarre video, and he says it was NOT meant to see the light of day:
Throughout the years, Eli Roth has gained a reputation for his "torture porn" splatter flicks, featuring grotesque and disturbing images.
However, even by his standards, this is very dark.
A video has recently surfaced on the internet showing seemingly random clips from Marilyn Manson music videos for songs off of his 2012 album, Born Villain.
