Relapse by Ministry
Released: Mar 2012
Label: Afm Records
Repurposing a title from fellow past-prime Midwesterner Eminem, Al Jourgensen's latest lineup spends Ministry's first album in five years catching up with modern-day more-bark-than-bite metalcore. They open deriding ex-labels, ex-wives and ex-tax attorneys, then acknowledge heroin ("Freefall"), nod to Occupy Wall Street ("Kleptocracy," "99 Percenters"), submit a dorkily well-meaning democracy PSA ("Get Up Get Out 'n' Vote"), and remember a Ted Nugent title ("Weekend Warrior"). But they save their catchiest groove and clank (in the vaguely Alice Cooper-ish "Bloodlust") for the end.
