Bianca Allaine Kyne Issues Statement Attempting to Spin a Recent Court Loss Into a Victory

A little over a week ago I wrote about a significant partial dismissal granted to Marilyn Manson on July 2nd in the lawsuit issued by Bianca Allaine Kyne. First, it stated that Manson's motion to dismiss all allegations in Kyne's complaint referencing sexual abuse as a minor in 1995 when she was 16 years old was granted. Second, any reference to Kyne's own personal drawings of Manson from when she was 16 are to be removed. Third, Kyne is therefore ordered to make a Second Amended Complaint within 30 days removing all of the above. Despite this significant victory of Marilyn Manson in managing to get a partial dismissal in this case, on July 15th Bianca Allaine Kyne and her lawyer Jeff Anderson decided to issue statements spinning their loss into a victory. They argue that since Manson was not granted a full dismissal (which he was not seeking), then he lost and they won in this particular ruling. What Was the Ruling on July 2nd?   When you read the ruling issued on July

Marilyn Manson Announces New Record Label on his Wedding Anniversary

In anticipation of their four year wedding anniversary, on May 14th, Lindsay Warner released six photographs on her Instagram of which two were shared in Marilyn Manson's Instastories.

The photos include two shots of their beautiful "Garden", one  "still life" (nature morte) shot of an arrangement of flowers with a skull on one end and a figurine of Marie Antoinette holding her decapitated head on the other, two lovely shots of Lindsay holding a bouquet taken by Manson with both captioned "We have loved each other for 15 years," and one shot of Manson holding a single flower with both hands which is captioned "My Soulmate".

A common feature of both the photos of Manson and Lindsay are that they are holding the flowers with the same hand we can see their wedding rings displayed.

And as previously mentioned elsewhere, the combination of decapitated heads and flowers can be viewed as a symbol of new life and the beginning of a new cycle, since in the Holy Wood era, which the current era is borrowing heavily from, one meaning for the decapitated head could reference the symbolism of the Hydra, who though thought dead from decapitation, a new head grows with an elevated consciousness that seeks to complete the revolution against those who attempted its destruction.

If there is any more significance to the figure of Marie Antoinette, we can add that her famous decapitation took place in an atmosphere of revolution, and the accusations leveled against her along with the subsequent trial were unjust and heavily based on slander. Not only was she just given one day to prepare for her defense, but she even had to face an accusation of incest, a charge made by her son Louis Charles, pressured into doing so by the radical Jacques Hébert who controlled him.

The numerical significance of 15 is well known to Manson fans, stemming from its association with Manson's birthday on January 5th. This year it holds special significance because it is the 15th anniversary since Manson and Lindsay fell in love in 2009, and they were married on the 15th day of the 5th month of the year.

Finally, on May 15th 2024, around noon, we were given a glimpse of what has been anticipated for a long time.

First, Manson posted a teaser video with new music that was mutually posted by his new record label, Nuclear Blast Records. Nuclear Blast Records is the world's biggest independent Heavy Metal label, established in Germany in 1987.  They have over 120 metal bands signed to their label, with many of the world's top heavy metal bands, including some familiar to Manson fans, such as Rob Zombie, Ministry and Slayer, with Manson now probably their most commercially recognized artist. You can read a list of the artists on the Nuclear Blast label here. If you recall, as soon as Evan Rachel Wood issued her statement against Manson on February 1st 2021, Manson's then label Loma Vista Recordings sent a statement to Billboard and said it will no longer promote Manson’s then recent album We Are Chaos or work with him on future projects. Now Manson has revealed that he has signed on to a growing record label more suited to his style.
In a new statement sent to Billboard, Nuclear Blast said it is “heralding a new phase in the career of this iconic metal artist,” though it declined to provide further details on the nature of the deal.

Second, we were treated to a teaser of a music video directed by Bill Yukich which is rich in imagery that brings together the storyline of the new era and which has been slowly developing through photos for months now. I won't get too much into the details, since I want to wait and see if there is more to this video, but flash images seem to convey something ritualistic, as if there may be symbolic significance taken from the Occult sciences. We first see Manson in the shadows with a red curtain/light behind him as he is slowly revealed. The images that we then get all show Manson being recreated and renewed as a new Adam and placed in the Garden. New blood is flowing through his veins and fresh oxygen is in his lungs. He is now ready to reemerge. The lyrics that are heard being whispered are "Keep sleeping, I'll make you dream of me."

With the new tour and album on the horizon, the message is loud and clear - Marilyn Manson is back!
