Have you ever wondered about the amazing worldwide success of Rammstein despite the fact that they sing in German? It’s probably their pompous industrial sound and their imposing style that made them so successful. And the music industry of course that turned their German-speaking hindrance to advantage…
Whatever… Reise Reise is a great album, not the prodigy child which the fantastic “Mutter” probably had hoped for, but still a very agile industrial son…

Al Jourgensen was clever enough and strong-minded not to indulge in a safe career covered behind the music industry. “ΚΕΦΑΛΗ ΞΘ” back in 1992 had already worried the establishment, as the later releases did. At the mid the 90s he was already a “public enemy” for both political and music corporate world.
Almost a decade after their first heyday Ministry returned with “Houses of the Mole”. The first bloodline of the intransigent “George W. Bush trilogy”, with Ministry leading the extreme sound to new uncharted grounds, an unprecedented havoc which lies between industrial and thrash metal and has never heard before in such extremity. “Rio Grande Blood” and “Last Sucker” will follow to comprise a second-to-none lp trilogy, a desperate call against the New World Order of neoliberalism and the politics who lead this world thanks to the apolitical hordes which capitalism has created.
Ladies n’ gentlemen the decadence of what we are and where we live, is completely described inside this monstrous trilogy. Houses of the Molé is just the first blood…

That was the third album for the metalcore/groove band from Massachusetts, the first with the god Howard Jones on vocals and writing and probably their best moment. One of the greatest metalcore works of the previous decade.

The last lp of the mighty thrashing powerhouse Grip Inc. still stands as one of the landmarks of groove metal, packed with touching themes, full of inspirational lyrics, a sense of folk due to the presence of latin style percussion and cello and -of course- the band’s indicative grooving thrash guitars.
