Antichrist Superstar

Antichrist Superstar is Marilyn Manson's second full-length studio album, released in October 1996 through Trent Reznor's Nothing label. The album was co-produced by Reznor and many songs on the album saw contributions from members of Nine Inch Nails and previous NIN collaborators. It is considered to be a concept album, with a three part storyline detailing the protagonist's rise. This was the last album that Reznor and Manson collaborated on.
