Ministry From Beer To Infinity on 2LP
13th & Final Album from the Grammy Nominated / Platinum Recording Artist
No one wrestles victory out of the clenched jaws of defeat quite like Ministry leader Al Jourgensen. Heading into the studio to produce Ministry’s 13th official studio album, From Beer to Eternity, he and all the members of his team were beside themselves grieving the sudden and unexpected death of their longtime guitarist Mike Scaccia on December 22nd, 2012.
But the tracks Scaccia recorded before leaving Jourgensen’s 13th Planet Studio in El Paso, Texas were so good, so musically multifaceted and incisive, that From Beer to Eternity is destined to be the culminating audio release in the band’s 30-plus year archive of industrial metal output.
From the schizophrenic opening cut, the sarcasm-dripping, sound effect-laden “Hail to his Majesty” to the thrash-punk riffs and booming bass reverberations of “Punch in the Face,” From Beer to Eternity pulls no punches, sounding at once familiar, yet completely fresh and inspired.
Imagine the best bits in Ministry’s career - all distilled into one release. It’s like a filet mignon with all the fat trimmed away. In Jourgensen's own words: “It pretty much wraps up my career with a bow and ties up all the loose ends and it’s rock solid – the definitive guide to the Ministry cosmos.”
