The God Bombs
Ministry AmeriKKKant tour opening the night at The Paramount Theater was New Yorks's own The God Bombs. Justin Symbol, a fixture of the New York scene, has teamed up with Jabbath Roa on keys/guitar and Edrick Supervi on percussion to form a very energetic line up. Their debut album Hex is out and worth a listen as is their show. Full of energy from start to finish a great act to hear and see.
Next up was Chelsea Wolf, with her band mates Ben Chisholm on bass/synth, Jess Gowrie on drums and Bryan Tulao on guitar. Captivating the crowd with her presence and thought provoking lyrics, playing songs heavily from her 6th album Hiss Spun and greats from her past catalog. Definitely worth checking out on this tour .
Now to hit the stage the industrial heavyweights Ministry. After 30 plus years of making music and telling it like it is, Al Jourgensen and the band are back to spew again what's up. Their new album AmeriKKKant is full of songs emulating the political & social topics of our world today, as only Jourgensen can tell. The band consisting of Sin Quirin on guitar, John Bechdel on keys, Tony Campos on bass, Cesar Soto on guitar, Derek Abrams on drums & DJ Swamp on Turntables cranked the tunes one after the other, as true veterans of their craft can only do. To add to the magic, guest vocalist Fear Factory's Burton C. Bell joined Ministry on stage. Now signed with Nuclear Blast Records the band is back in the saddle and you Better be ready for the ride .
