New Ministry Album, Out 2018

2017-12-11 by Aaron W. STAFF | 38 Comments
In what seems like the thousandth time Ministry front-man Al Jourgensen has subsequently broken up and reformed the once-hallowed industrial rock act this past decade, the band has announced their fourteenth album "AmeriKKKant":

‘AmeriKKKant’ is out on March 9, 2018 via Nuclear Blast Records.

“This album, ‘AmeriKKKant,’” said Jourgensen, "will provide FEMA-type relief for the devastation ‘Hurricane Cheeto’ has brought upon us."

Produced by Al Jourgensen, recorded at Caribou Studios in Burbank, CA between January and May this year, and with striking artwork created by Mister Sam Shearon, the psychedelic, politically influenced and very much in-your-face AmeriKKKant’s nine tracks are rooted in Jourgensen’s unadulterated anger for what’s happening in America today - the waning respect for the U.S. Constitution, the growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts, the decline of our leaders’ sense of morals, ethics and personal responsibility to the country and to their constituents, and the mad man in the White House.

AmeriKKKant track listing:

1. I Know Words
2. Twilight Zone
3. Victims of a Dlown
4. TV5/4Chan
5. We’re Tired of It
6. Wargasm
7. Antifa
8. Game Over
9. AmeriKKKa

Listen to "Antifa" in the meanwhile, complete with shoddy production values:

I really want Ministry to release another good album, but there's probably a 10% chance that will ever happen again

Digging: Xiu Xiu - Forget

Last two albums were pretty bland agreed, but that song's not too bad... hoping for some more stuff like this. Btw if the new album means they'll go on tour again I'm more than fine with it, saw them last year and they were still powerful and energetic af.

Five words, like a beacon of light in the mist:
"Ministry live at the Ritz"
It was Christ has risen to Chris
3 loaves, 2 fish
Miracle of mechanized loops on 2-inch
Coming to a theater he would be there in the flesh
Moms didn't say "No," but she didn't say "Yes"
Cop tickets, ah the plot thickens
Countdown to ultimate concert experience
Ma still wary
"...and why are they called Ministry?! Are they a cult?!..."
Maybe she would properly investigate
Bought a mag with an Al Jourgensen interview
Read a couple sentences, glanced at a pic or two or three
That's all, no fair trial
Simply, "You will not be going to the show and that's final!"

"If you’re in the mood for an insanely repetitive song that simultaneously shames the right while glorifying the worst parts of the left, well then, have Ministry got a song for you!" - MetalSucks

I'm always divided on Antifa as, in Europe anyway, Antifa has done a lot of good, especially in parts of Germany and Italy which have had consistent problems with neo-Nazi and fascist people coming to it due to Hitler and Mussolini's legacies. In America, though, it's trash. Musically, it returns to 90s industrial Ministry and while it's nowhere near the level that output was, it's still a welcome change from the thrash approach they've had since at least the Bush trilogy.

I know at first glance it seems corny as all hell, but I can respect them for getting into subjects like this without any sort of filter, especially one as divisive as Antifa

The context I know of Antifa is America and that Antifa does not usually do what its mission statement claims it is doing. They usually START violence at places that aren't exactly Nazi rallies, just events with speakers who aren't sucking Karl Marx's cock.

But Al's political views have basically been that of a drunken college freshman for his entire career now.

I think they're on Nuclear Blast as well. Apparently that label is really going after the sideshow acts.

ok so first thing that needs to be said here is there is no general antifa organisation, it's simply the ideology of anti-fascist thought which comprises many different kinds of people and many different kinds of voters - throough charity work in my local area ive met a local anti-fascist group, and literally none of them could hurt a fly - most were at least in their late 40s and one of them was interestingly enough a ukip voter so make of that what you will. Secondly, half this shit you hear about 'antifa' is complete lies. There are a very small militant portion of people who have been violent before (and that's even if you count destroying property as violence) , but the vast majority of this sudden anti-antifa attitude is sponsored by alt-right nutbags who are simply scared of people opposing them and want o cuddle up in their little safe spaces away from anyone who might challenge them.

@Sinternet - I have not met those antifa members, but that's great to hear that the majority of them are peaceful and that my perspective may be skewed based on the actions of a few. Although I have seen first hand how people who go under that title act in public places. I like to see public speakers so I travel around, and it's not COMPLETE bullshit that there are violent members who make security a necessity and not the rare Neo-nazis that don't even show up to most of these things (once again, I'm talking more Ben Shapiro than Richard Spencer).

But nevertheless, my opinion of Al's politics still stand. He also had a lot of conspiracy theory bullshit on that Rio album and that made me cringe like crazy. And his interviews, ugh...he really doesn't know as much about politics as he thinks he does.

American Antifa is the one that gives it a bad image. European Antifa is pretty cool and laid back unless there are genuine Nazis around (and especially in Germany they like to march a lot in places where key Nazis lived/were born/are believed to be buried)

Probably won't see them unless they only play 80s/early 90s shit exclusively and if all of the funds go to some charity that I would support.

Well, during the European tour they brought back into the set some '90s songs ('Filth Pig', 'Supermanic Soul', 'Bad Blood'), which is cool, because there are many underrated tracks on Filth Pig and Dark Side of the Spoon. However, they'll probably be left out again in favor of the new songs IMO.

The current setlist looks pretty great, many classics. I don't think they'll replace all of the great ones with new stuff. Past two gigs I went to they fortunately were pretty cautions with their new songs. Hoping for some Filth Pig stuff as well.
