Joining forces in 2002 with Marilyn Manson, rock’s most shocking and controversial figurehead since Alice Cooper, Swedish rock musican Tim Skold, with his calculated goth glam look and art-industrial metal bass, was an immediate and collaborative fit. Skold replaced original MM bassist Twiggy, but had a long and varied musical career prior. A skilled musician, vocalist and producer, Skold played with the Swedish hair bands King Pin (later morphing into Shotgun Messiah), released Skold, a solo album in 1996 (on which he played all the instruments), and did a short stint with industrial anarchists KMFDM in 1997.
Making his debut with Marilyn Manson on 2003’s The Golden Age of Grotesque, Skold’s background in sampling and drum loops, along with his mechanized bass growl on “mOBSCENE,” was representative of the more beat-driven and electronic aspects of the swing-themed album.
