Background and recording[]

The band's announced on in November 2015 that he, , and had begun work on the follow-up to 2015's . Seven months later, during an interview with Ryan J. Downey at the , he revealed several details about the forthcoming record, such as a tentative release date, along with its , Say10. He later explained that the title originated from a hand-written note found in his twelfth-grade workbook from , near , . As with The Pale Emperor, Manson and Bates worked on the record while the latter was composing material for the American television series , the third season of which featured Manson as a recurring cast member. Parts of the album were recorded in where Manson was filming scenes for the series.

The vocalist was doubtful if Bates would agree to work with him again, considering saw relations between the two deteriorate to where Manson threatened the guitarist on-stage with a . Bates said the incident stemmed from Manson "breaking beer bottles so he could cut himself, but the shards of glass were hitting our drummer Gil. I got really pissed and told him to stop with the fucking glass. ... so he like, kicked a [bottle] and it hit me on stage and I'd just had enough. I said, 'What the fuck?'. So instead of the bottle, he pulls out a box cutter and says 'You want me to cut you open with this box cutter, Tyler Bates?' I said, 'You fucking come near me and I'll kill you with that box cutter!'" Bates renamed his Box Cutter Music in honor of the incident.

Despite initially suggesting that Twiggy would contribute to recording sessions, it was later confirmed that the band's longtime bassist would not feature on the album, although he did attend sessions in Bates' recording studio in . After listening to pre-recorded performed by Bates, Twiggy responded by indicating he would be unable to "play them any better, and that the record sounded great [as it was]", according to Manson. On May 8, 2017, Manson revealed the album had been renamed Heaven Upside Down and said its recording had been completed.

Composition and style[]

"Two decades on and ten albums down, Manson remains the same icon in a different realm, one that he's warned us about his whole career. 2017 is heaven upside down: a nightmarish, capitalist landscape of broken promises that we're constantly reassured is what we asked for. A world of uncertainty, with endless possibility sitting alongside ever-growing restriction, reality TV becoming reality... becoming president. "I'm not a ghost", Manson screams on the album's title track. And isn't that what we're all worried about right now—that we're either invisible, or nearly dead?"

— writer Thomas Gorton on the underlying concept behind Heaven Upside Down.

Manson initially described Say10 as being a departure musically from The Pale Emperor, and said it would be more similar to the band's earlier work, particularly and , but "with a new, different approach." He described it as being "pretty violent in its nature for some reason, and it's not emotional in the same way [as The Pale Emperor]. It's got a chip on its shoulder." He also called it "by far the most thematic and over-complicated thing that I've done", adding that it contained some of his most politically-charged lyrics. Manson described Heaven Upside Down as a and album in the vein of , , , and 's . "" was the first song Manson and Bates recorded for the album.

The pair largely improvised during their writing sessions. Bates said that songs would be created "out of a conversation, essentially, just between [Manson] and I, and we make it pretty much on the spot. It's me making music right from my head, and the lyrics are developed by Manson right there in the studio with me." The vocalist described the collaborative process between the two as being "a very intimate, personal experience. ... We sit across from each other, with headphones on, we look each other in the eye when we're writing." Manson opted not to record his vocals from inside a , instead recording them while sitting at Bates' ; the majority of vocals on the album were recorded in single , with minimal . Bates also sought to factor in the band's live performances into the material, and described the album as "intense, fun and violent. It's more immediate than The Pale Emperor, much more aggressive, and definitely much more imbued with Manson's fucked-up humor." He also said:

“ I wanted the album to be a platform for Manson to return to journalism, and write about the stuff we talk about, which is the sickness and passivity that is permeating the annals of society. Terrorism, mass shootings, reluctance to change, abandonment, dogma, apathy, judgment—all of this is pervasive in shaping our daily life's experience. [So] the music is imbued with frustration, sadness, and anger about all of this, and to explore this landscape effectively, the sounds and the riffs needed to be more cutting and abrasive than The Pale Emperor. Heaven Upside Down is comprised of the music we love: goth and industrial, king-size guitar riffs, sex, equal parts 'fuck you' and jagged humor. Act II. ” — Tyler Bates, in an interview with Goldo Sync Report.

The vocalist called the album his "most precise and well-thought-out work", and compared its lyrics to those of , noting that the majority of lyrics on both releases were initially written in format. Lyrical themes and subject matter on the record range from politics, violence, sex and romance, chaos and isolation, and capitalism, religion, drugs, paranoia, fear and mental illness. Manson has described it as a concept album, and contrasted it with The Pale Emperor by saying: "The last album was , . For me, this would be ". He later denied that the political lyrical content related to the election of , saying that most of the lyrics were written before the . He had indicated he would not be voting in that election, explaining: "I don't think that, as an artist, I can make as much of a difference voting as I can the commentaries I make in music". Manson also said that the title of "Revelation #12" was a reference to both the and ' "".

Release and artwork[]

The album was not released on Valentine's Day. Manson later explained that its release was delayed by several factors, including Bates' schedule scoring films, the vocalist being unhappy with the quality of the record by that date, as well as the death of his father Hugh Warner on July 7, 2017, to whom Heaven Upside Down is dedicated. Bates has also said that recording was delayed due to the band's touring schedule; the pair had completed just six songs before beginning a North American co-headlining tour with in the summer of 2016. A further three tracks on the album were recorded sometime after Valentine's Day: "Revelation #12", "Saturnalia" and "Heaven Upside Down", with the album's name then being changed to the latter song title. Manson elaborated on its meaning, saying: "I was going to call the record SAY10, but I didn't feel that that defined the album. I had the lyrics written for the song 'Heaven Upside Down', and I thought that defined the record more so because of , being defined by the —the blackness; the idea of looking at something from an opposite point of view."

This song has been described as a centrepiece of the album

Manson was unaware of the severity of his father's terminal illness until two days before he died, the same day the band finished recording the final song written for the album, "Saturnalia". The track is eight minutes long, and contains numerous and references, specifically the of – – and the myth of devouring his children. Manson conflated his father's death with the song's lyrical content, saying: "Seeing my father dying, I felt like that was the circle of life that he'd want me to put the energy of , you know, , , Saturninus, that whole concept."

Prior to the album's eventual release, Manson posted a series of videos on . The first of these, posted on March 22, 2017, was captioned "6:19. The time has come." Numerous publications hypothesized whether 6:19 referred to a June 19 release date, a Bible verse, or the lyrics to the track "". Further videos featured and distant screaming, a hooded figure, and the Celebritarian Cross—an inverted variation on the which had been previously used by Manson as a logo for his in 2005; the symbol subsequently appeared on the Heaven Upside Down album cover.

The record was released worldwide on October 6. The album's lyric booklet was printed on , with the lyrics also formatted to resemble biblical text. The record was by Brian Lucey, the engineer who masters the majority of Bates' soundtrack work. He was chosen because, according to Manson, the album contains "some extreme experiments with sound. We were very particular in not allowing someone else to master it, who might accidentally eliminate them. We've got some very intense, alchemical, scientific, binaural sounds that sometimes even make me have a panic attack while I'm listening to it." These sounds are most prevalent in the title track and "Saturnalia", which Manson highlighted as centerpieces of the record. Japanese editions of the album contain a remix of "" as a bonus track.

Promotion and singles[]

On the day of the 2016 US presidential election – November 8 – the band released a short teaser clip of a new video, "". The video was created by director . It featured images of Manson brandishing a bloodstained knife while standing above a decapitated corpse lying in a pool of blood. Numerous publications noted the corpse was dressed in similar clothing to the kind regularly worn by Donald Trump—a suit and red tie. Manson would later say that the decapitated figure in the video "wasn’t anyone except if you wanted it to be them."

The rest of the tour was later canceled, including the band's appearance at Aftershock, with all dates, excluding festival appearances, rescheduled to take place at the start of 2018.

"In an era where have become a nearly daily occurrence, this was an act of theater in an attempt to make a statement about how easily accessible semi-automatic weapons are, and how seeing them has become normalized. My performance was not meant to be disrespectful or show any insensitivity. ... My art has always been a reaction to , and my way to make people think about the horrible things that happen in this world. My empathy goes out to anyone who has been affected by the irresponsible and reprehensible misuse of real guns."

—Manson's statement in response to criticism made after his use of a replica assault rifle as a microphone during a concert.

Several publications said the album continued a creative resurgence which began with their previous release. said: "If Pale Emperor was a welcome return to form that signaled a new day for the band, its successor is just as satisfying, if not better." This sentiment was echoed by writer Terrence Crawley, who wrote: "No one expected this band to be doing some of its best work 20 years after it first shook up the zeitgeist, but here it is, continuing to evolve while toning down its more dated or cartoonish aspects. It just goes to show that a good album beats a good scandal every time." referred to it as their best album since Holy Wood, while of commented on Manson's recent stage injury: "Had the worst happened, Heaven Upside Down is the kind of career-defining record that [he] just might want to leave as his last great opus anyway."

The record was lauded by numerous publications for being a solid and concise album, such as 's sister publication , who rated it 3.5 stars out of 5.'s awarded it the same score, dubbing it an 'album of the week' and describing it as an "exhilarating" record. Greg Kennelty of praised the album's consistency as well, calling it "an impeccably well-written album that constantly introduces new styles and aspects to its sound throughout, all while revolving around a very disquieting core tonality." commended Manson for "never [being] afraid to take reference points from other genres", and said that Heaven Upside Down fused three distinct genres from the band's previous work, to "devastating effect"—Antichrist Superstar's , Mechanical Animals' , and the of The Pale Emperor. described it as an "interesting record, keeping much of the bluesy stomp of the last [album] but peppering it with his signature sense of volatility." They rated the album 3.5 stars out of 5, and praised Bates for enabling Manson to "return to his roots", which they described as him "playing overtly with taboos and openly baiting his critics."

Critics also praised the quality of its lyrics. of Classic Rock called it the band's "most astute album in decades". The rated the album 3 stars out of 5 while saying: "American life is scary enough right now without Marilyn Manson sticking his oar in. Nevertheless, [Heaven Upside Down] may offer some useful catharsis for those who feel like screaming", although they noted the record "offers zero reasons to be cheerful." In another 3-star review, similarly asked: "Is Marilyn Manson the first or the last person we need to hear in these troubled times? ... [What] better to clear the fog out of the air [than] some cathartic, take-no-shit, heads-down rock'n'roll which holds a shattered mirror up to the face of America?" said the album was best enjoyed while listening "on headphones, where [Manson's] unadorned, chilling stalker-esque asides will make your bladder flex. ... At the end of the [record], all that's missing is the sound of the dropping."

The album has also received some mixed reviews. complained that it threaded too close to "familiar territory", and said most of the songs were "entertaining rather than groundbreaking." Both and complimented the inclusion of elements, which the latter said helped songs match the "sheer intensity" of the band's earlier work, but were both critical of the lyrics. A writer for also criticized its violent lyrical content, particularly on "We Know Where You Fucking Live", in light of the . Conversely, argued that the album's lyrical content was ineffective and "easily eclipsed [by] the open horror of the [real] world". said that fans were "unlikely to see the power or the passion of Manson's classic run again – it's very difficult to bottle lightning twice ... That said, [Manson] seems to have settled after many years of free-fall. In Tyler Bates he has found a collaborator who knows how to get the best from his twisted mind. It's business as usual, but after a decade of disappointment, it's good to know business is doing well." Similarly, said the album was "not quite in the league of its surprise swamp-rockin' predecessor, but the best of it belts out of the traps with a pop-industrial panache that's unarguable."
