I am positive it is actually nice and all that, however once I say area rock, I do not imply that this album’s going to be a hair-band fucking album. I imply, it is MINISTRY, proper? I am simply saying that the chord progressions and the sound of it’s simply rather more… we do not go off on eclectic tangents as a lot. These are hard-hitting beats which can be in your face, and that you could possibly visualize 20,000 folks realizing the lyrics to the songs and chanting alongside.
