Marilyn Manson Goes Full American Gothic in New Song "God's Gonna Cut You Down"
His take on the American traditional folk song is just as disturbing as you'd expect
Published Oct 18, 2019Marilyn Manson has popped back into momentary relevance after releasing a new track today, his take on the traditional American folk song "God's Gonna Cut You Down."
His dark version of the song — previously sung by Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley — comes alongside a new black-and-white video. Shot in Joshua Tree, Manson teamed up with director Tim Mattia for a super creepy, signature Manson visual affair including obligatory grave digging, Jesus cosplay, bloody violence and crucifixes. You know, the usual.
The track is available for purchase on a special edition picture disc, featuring an original watercolour illustration by Manson. Find that here.
