Review of Ministry – From Beer To Eternity (AFM/13th Planet Records)

BeerWas there ever really any concern that pioneering industrial metal band Ministry would mellow as they aged? Now, 30 years after their debut, the band is reportedly getting set to call it a day. If this is goodbye from Ministry, it is a hell of a send off to give to their fans. Sounding as vital and as politically outspoken as ever, the aggression and intensity displayed on sample-heavy tracks like Punch In The Face, Fairly Unbalanced and Perfect Storm is not easily matched.
