Resurrected industrial pioneers Ministry will make a welcome return to Ireland, the scene of their ‘last shows ever’ back in 2008, as part of their ‘Defribillatour 2012′.
Thirty years and 12 albums into a career of euphoric highs and stupefying lows, Ministry have created Relapse, their heaviest, most eclectic and most inspiring offering to date. The brainchild of frontman Al Jourgensen and his experienced wingmen (or is that wingnuts), the record bursts with the turmoil of a violent political rally and the precision of a marksman at a shooting range.
With 16 million records sold worldwide, six Grammy nominations under his belt and kudos from industrial bands that have followed in his wake, including Nine Inch Nails, Slipknot and Korn to name a few, Al Jourgensen of Ministry has earned the right and garnered the credibility to judge the quality of his own material. Coming five chaotic years and one near-death experience after the release of the Ministry’s The Last Sucker, Relapse is less a dramatic comeback than a climactic return.
Unapologetic, confrontational and catchy as an influenza epidemic, the album compiles Ministry’s strongest sentiments, riffs and refrains and reconfigures them in a way that’s utterly brutal, yet undeniably thought provoking, Relapse incorporates elements of thrash, crossover metal, groove metal, angular prog rock, psychedelia and even classic rock.
