Halloween may have come and gone for another year, but for some people, everyday is Halloween. If YOU are one of those fortunates, this is your anthem…
MINISTRY – EVERYDAY (IS HALLOWEEN)
AL JOURGENSEN, front man of MINISTRY, is one of the most important and recognized figures in the development of INDUSTRIAL METAL as a musical scene and genre. What a lot of his fans likely don’t know is that Ministry started out, in 1981, as a SYNTH POP act. The first LP to bare the Ministry name is considered, by Jourgensen, to be an “abortion of an album”, because all artistic control of the record was handed over to the writers and producers, by ARISTA, Ministry’s label at the time. HALLOWEEN is one of the few tracks from this album that Jourgensen regards as a good representation of his early works. It was also the most popular single from the album, and it became, as it has remained, somewhat of an anthem for members of the emerging GOTH scene.
While Jourgensen retired the Ministry name in 2008, the band is set for a reunion show, and new album, in 2012.
Like so much OLDSCHOOL music, here on DKGL, this is a VINYL RIP from my collection. Enjoy.
As an added bonus, check out this hilarious WEBPAGE from a Christian website, preaching the evils of this satan worshipping band. Hahaaa!
