With X Japan and their song ‘Jade’ earning five victories and entering the Cage Match Hall of Fame, we are starting fresh with a new battle featuring two iconic bands facing off against each other. Thrash-metal legends Anthrax and industrial pioneers Ministry go head to head with their brand-new singles.
In December of last year, legendary Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen announced the impending release of his psycho-country side project, Buck Satan and the 666 Shooters. Now, the entire cowboy-core experiment 'Bikers Welcome, Ladies Drink Free,' is available for streaming online in advance of its Jan. 17 release date.
We recently reported that Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen had resurrected the band after a three-year split. Although Jourgensen vowed to never bring Ministry back, the singer-guitarist surprised his fans with a welcomed change of heart. Now, Ministry have announced dates for a very brief 2012 U.S. tour.
Al Jourgensen died not long after he broke up his industrial metal band Ministry in 2008 after 11 albums and 27 years under his guiding hand. Wait, what? Jourgensen's death is news to you? It was to us, too, but it turns out that Jourgensen died only in the true medical sense of the word, since he flatlined in the emergency room but was revived. Now that you are breathing a sigh of relief, Jourgensen isn't the only entity to be brought back to life, because Ministry, who were game changers in the early '90s, are back.
