- Marilyn Manson (1996)- A Nietzschean, semi-autobiographical tale about a young man's (referred to as "The Worm") rise from an insecure child into a celebrity. The album conceptually alludes to Nietzsche's book Thus Spake Zarathustra in exploring the theme of a personal journey from "Worm" to "‹bermensch": the destructive celebrity Antichrist Superstar, in this case.
- Marilyn Manson (1998) - A story revolving around a gender-bending alien named Alpha, a substance-addicted glam rocker named Omega who sold out on his "revolution" and a woman named Coma White. In the storyline of Marilyn Manson's trilogy, it precedes Antichrist Superstar
Holy Wood (In the Shadow of the Valley of Death)
- Marilyn Manson (2000) - Simultaneously the prequel to both Antichrist Superstar
and Mechanical Animals
and the third and final installment in their concept album "trilogy", Holy Wood
chronicles the beginnings of the characters of Adam and Coma White. One day, Adam will become the glam rocker Omega and then the nihilistic Antichrist Superstar.
