Gothic-industrial rocker Marilyn Manson has parted ways with guitarist Zim Zum just a few months before the release of the new MM album, Mechanical Animals (Sept. 15). Zum, who replaced previous guitarist Daisy Berkowitz prior to the release of 1996's Antichrist Superstar, will in turn be replaced by ex-Two (Rob Halford) guitarist John Lowery, who can currently be heard on the new David Lee Roth album. The new Manson album was produced by Michael Beinhorn, who also recently produced the new Hole album, and will be preceded by the single "Dope Show," according to a spokesperson at Manson's label, Interscope Records.
