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…

Ministry’s personnel Al Jourgensen and Paul Barker meet the Dead Kennedy’s explosive punk singer Jello Biafra to create an infuriated and completely sarcastic industrial hardcore punk band, called Lard. “Pure Chewing Satisfaction”, recorded during 1991-96 and published in ’97, is one of their greatest moments.

Favorite “uncle” Al Jourgensen and Ministry in another industrial/thrash metal cornerstone, served behind one of the worst covers music industry ever has seen… Decrying neoliberalism, US politics, music industry and the modern apolitical society of clueless homogenized consumers, “Relapse” was then meant to be the band’s last lp.

The lp that ended all lps. Nothing after this would be the same again…
The biggest benchmark of industrial music, “Kεφαλή ΞΘ” paved new roads in all extreme sounds, from death metal to electro.
Furthermore, it was the prophecy of the post cold war era. An incensed scream against the modern human nothingness and insensitivity and a despondent and eerie call to arms of our brainwashed minds!

Basque autonomists and one of the most important groups of european punk-rock. Politically left and keen on many labor and social movements from all over the world, Kortatu had The Clash as their main musical influence and were frequently singing in basque language (a language actually not intimate to classic western rock rhythms and musical styles).
Aupa Euskadi!!

The first lp that Pennsylvanian punk-rockers have ever recorded for a major label was also their most critical for the United States government and the corporate world in general… Decrying capitalism, from Wall Street to Monsanto and from WTO to weapons of mass destruction, Anti-Flag follow in the footsteps of bands like Bad Religion and Pennywise.
