New Thirsty Media is up, and with it, my article and interview with now defunct industrial pioneers, Ministry. The interview is with Sin Quirin of Revolting Cocks and Burton C. Bell of Fear Factory, both of whom have been recording and touring with Ministry for a while. If you’ve missed it, Ministry has put out some really great albums in the last couple years, and now they’ve called it quits.
The interesting thing is that, rather than fading out into irrelevance, Ministry have pumped out some of the best albums they’ve ever recorded in very short order. They sound as fierce as ever, the music can still knock a few teeth out, and to see them on stage for this final leg of their final tour, it’s clear they’re still having a great time doing what they’re doing. To talk to them you hear that they are, if anything, going to be even more active in the wake of Ministry. Most of the current members on the tour are active participants with active projects in Al Jourgenson’s new 13th Planet records. With a new Revolting Cocks album due out any day now, new stuff from Prong, Ascension, as well as some completely new bands, records, and collaborations in the works, it leads one to wonder if there will be much time to even miss Ministry.
