Marilyn Manson was awarded the Lifetime Achievement gong at the Relentless Kerrang! Awards.
The “If I Was Your Vampire” singer, who has released 13 albums in his career over two decades, was honored with the award at a ceremony in London on Thursday evening.
The 46-year-old musician was among tons of rock stars including Black Veil Brides, Alice Cooper, All Time Low, and many others.
The prestigious prize was awarded to Marilyn, but another big winner of the evening was All Time Low who took home the award for Best Event and Best International Band.
Royal Blood won the Best British Newcomer title, Judas Priest were presented with the Inspiration Award, and Bring Me the Horizon picked up Best British Band.
Kerrang! Magazine Editor James McMahon said of the event, “What a night! You know why Kerrang! continues to grow well into our thirtieth year? Because we are the anti-boring. The anti-conservative. The anti-bland.”

We love that Manson received the Lifetime Achievement award. He is one of my personal favorite artists, who is often misunderstood.
This guy is not only a true artist but also a very intelligent man. Check out his interview with Bill O’Reilly:
