It had been a while that we had been this excited by a new Ministry album, but between the «Alert Level» tease and the brilliant «Good Trouble» single (listen to both of them here, alongside our detailed report on the album). Halfway through the album, they decided to include an unlikely cover of one of rock’s greatest classics, «Search and Destroy» by The Stooges. Below, listen to both the original song from 1972’s masterpiece «Raw Power», and to the Ministry cover, which features guitars by former The Cult member Billy Morrison. The Ministry video was shot by Dean Karr.
«Moral Hygiene» is set for release on October 1 through Nuclear Blast on cd, digital, and vinyl formats. Pre-orders are available here (digital) and here (cd and vinyl).
