MINISTRY : BAD BLOOD [1999]

Από το τελευταίο αληθινά σημαντικό άλμπουμ του θρυλικού industrial metal σχήματος, The Dark Side Of The Spoon, 1999. Με τη λήξη [;] του “pre-millennium tension” η προσφορά των Ministry [= ουσιαστικά, μετά την αποχώριση του Paul Barker το 2003, του Al Jourgensen “σόλο”] θα εκφυλίζονταν σε μια διαδικασία ανακύκλωσης.

From the last truly important album released by the legendary industrial metal outfit,
The Dark Side Of The Spoon, 1999. After the end [?] of “pre-millennium tension”, Μinistry’s musical offer [= Al Jourgensen’s, after Paul Barker’s departure in 2003] would be degenerated into a recycling process.

What’s lies?
Full moon and thoughts collide
We look for answers in those catatonic, dying blod-shot eyes
We ask if vermin are the ones that already learned
Those aren’t tears,
They’re just bad bad blood
Just bad bad blood!
What lies?
No big surprise.
We get our clues from the ones who thought up they will conquer us
Are we too fucked to say the end is here too much?
We’re in denial with bad blood
(wailing sample:
Do you remember the strain?
Do you remember the pain?
Do you remember who caused all the blame?)
Bad Blood!
Do you remember me?
Do you remember us?
Do you surrender your dreams or your trust? )
Bad Blood!
What lies?
He’s finally come alive
Out of these mediocre plentiful things all the time
A steady stream of madness
Conscious to a flood
The clock is ticking for Bad Blood
(wailing sample:
Do you remember the strain?
Do you remember the pain?
Do you remember who caused all the blame?)

    It must be my stage in life. My reaction listening to the song was, “Calm down, man. Take a valium.”

      Well, this was my favorite rock band for the ’90s. I almost cried when I heard it was Stanley Kubrick’s also.
      Trust me, this guy is a lot more than your average out-of-his-head-in-need-for-a-valium person.

        I believe you. As I said, it was a pure gut reaction on my part that I didn’t expect.

    I needed that! Thank you! Loved every second and listened twice.
    Since listening to your music podcasts, I have become a monster Ministry fan. So good!
