Ministryn Al Jourgensenin uusi projekti Surgical Meth Machine kiinnitetty Nuclear Blastille

Al Jourgensen 2016Ministrysta tutun Al Jourgensenin luotsaama Surgical Meth Machine on kiinnitetty Nuclear Blast Recordsille. Yhtye tulee julkaisemaan debyyttialbuminsa myöhemmin tänä vuonna. Al Jourgensen on kommentoinut hiljattaisessa haastattelussa projektiaan seuraavasti:

”You know, [guitarist] Mikey [Scaccia] died a couple of years ago, from MINISTRY, and I just figured, like, nah, it’s time to quit. I don’t want to have John Bonham’s kid playing drums for us and having replacement parts forever; that’s just not my scene. So I just figured, ’All right, let’s stop this. Let’s do some other stuff.’ And not only that. I found that it was really unburdensome to not have the MINISTRY moniker or expectations and just do something like whatever the fuck we want. I mean, the band’s name is SURGICAL METH MACHINE. It’s not like we’re gonna be on Top 40 radio and on ’The Voice’ and ’American Idol’. [Laughs]”

”I understand it’s not a real commercial project for us, it’s not gonna put bank in my wallet, but it was a lot of fun to do, in that sense — of just not having the constraints of the expectations of what you’ve done for twenty years. So this is… It’s kind of new stuff. It’s pretty cool. It sounds like kind of MINISTRY, but it’s a different level. It’s like I literally just put my foot on the gas pedal for this record.”
