Going to the Ministry show, I somewhat knew what to expect. Having seen Ministry every tour since 1988 (Except farewell tour, I don’t believe in those), I knew the fury that was going to be unleashed. Opening the show with “Lets Go” Al Jourgensen came out to grind the gears of the crowds political psyche. Anybody who knows this band knows the arsenal of songs they have. Three songs into the set the band played a new song “Antifa” from their future album release in 2018 called “AMERIKKKANT”.  Sin Quirins guitar playing is amazing to say the least! Take Cesar Soto on guitar add the two of them with Tony Campos on bass and you have a huge sound that rattled the walls. Playing another new song “Wargasm” I could feel the anger that Al Jourgensen has been preaching for over a quarter century. The crowd ate up some old classics, N.W.O., Thieves and So What. Closing the night out with of all things a cover of Devo’s “Gates of steel” Ministry proved after all this time they are the dominant force in industrial metal!
