Sometime Ministry accomplice Burton C. Bell (Fear Factory) guests as a nightmarish clown on the band’s just-released video for the track “Wargasm,” which can be seen here: https://youtu.be/uJSrQQMbp2k Burton provided the track’s spoken word parts on the upcoming Ministry album AmeriKKKant, due out March 9 on Nuclear Blast Records.
The “Wargasm” video incorporates non-stop military combat visuals that illustrate the song’s perspective, described best with the lyric, “Death, power and sex…These are the things that we do best…Which country wants it next…Not many left to molest…”
AmeriKKKant was written and produced by the band’s provocateur-in-chief Al Jourgensen…nine tracks linked as one continuous piece of music….topics rooted in Jourgensen’s unadulterated rage for what’s happening in America today…the waning respect for the U.S. Constitution…growing acceptance of one’s opinions replacing facts…the sexual abuse and disrespect of women…and the toxicity generated by the man in the White House. In addition to Burton C Bell, the album also features performances by DJ Swamp (Beck), NWA’s Arabian Prince, and Lord of The Cello, plus Sin Quirin (guitar), Jason Christopher and Tony Campos (bass), Michael Rozon (engineer and drum programming), drummer Roy Mayorga, and Jourgensen on keyboards and guitar.
Jourgensen will channel P.T. Barnum when Ministry packs up the giant inflatable Trump chickens, Antifa flags, headcoverings and uniforms, along with the video screens that will project politically-imbued images to compliment the music, and head out on its North American tour that kicks off March 22.
