Ministry & Co Conspirators - Cover Up
Ministry fans know that Al Jourgensen is putting the infamous industrial giant to sleep following the upcoming final tour. Apparently, one reason he is doing so is to have more time to record and collaborate with other artists. This new CD, “Cover Up,” is but a taste of what’s to come and any Ministry fan will instantly fall in love as Jourgensen delivers the goods yet again.
“Cover Up” is due to be released on April 1, 2008, and Jourgensen covers all manner of great songs, giving them a hard and heavy Ministry beating. From the opening track, “Under My Thumb”, to “Bang A Gong” and “Just Got Paid,” this ain’t your father’s classic rock, folks! Although the songs are recognizable, Jourgensen has twisted them into modern, thumping, grinding party tunes. He brings in Burton C. Bell from Fear Factory, as well as his Rev-Co counterparts, to spice up yesterday’s hits for today’s sound.
I can think of no downside to this, or any other, Ministry release. All Ministry fans, rejoice and proudly add this to your collection. If this is the future, I not only embrace it, I can’t wait for the next installment. Grab this, play until your ears bleed…repeat.
