2018 album from the industrial metal band
Red/black swirl gatefold LP
Featuring the song "Antifa"
Ministry's Al Jourgensen, the acclaimed pioneer of industrial music, doesn't muck around, doesn't sugar-coat, doesn't pull punches. He's highly opinionated, exceptionally well read and articulate on subjects ranging from politics to alien conspiracies to American history to his beloved Chicago Blackhawks/Bulls/White Sox/Bears. He is an avid follower of NASA scientist David S. McKay, ancient civilizations scholar Zecharia Sitchin, astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson, and Scottish writer/archaeologist/scientist Graham Hancock.
Ministry's album AmeriKKKant reflects Jourgensen's anger over the current insane and frightening turn in society and politics, both in America and other nations.
Jourgensen says "I've spoken my piece on the societal conditions that would elect such a blithering idiot. It's not an anti-Trump album, it's like a — 'Did you pay attention in school? Does anybody have any intellectual curiosity anymore?' — album. [It's] basically just holding up a mirror to ourselves and saying: ‘Look at this, is this what you really want to be?'"
With a new line up, incredibly full sound, and some might say a return to the roots of Ministry, the band is prepared to release a record that is socially relevant and sonically effective.
