From Beer to Eternity
Label: Afm Records
On his band's supposed swan song, Al Jourgensen follows the Rachel Maddow-inspired, Obama-sampling, ready-for-Syria single "Permawar" with protests against global warming ("Perfect Storm"), Fox News ("Fairly Unbalanced") and politicians getting stupid about "legitimate rape" ("The Horror.") Some digital-hardcore nü-metal about prescription drug side-effect disclaimers comes next, and soon an eight-minute remix of William Burroughs' Thanksgiving prayer. Despite the late Mike Scaccia's guitar crunch, a few tracks feel almost like throwbacks to Ministry's pre-metal 1986 dub period, circa Twitch.
