Happy New Year
I wish everyone to have a safe and a Happy New Year. 2003 should be a great year for upcoming releases.
MK ULTRA Magazine
I received the following email from Alex Zander, the Editor-In-Chief of the MK ULTRA Magazine:
On Monday we released the new issue of MK ULTRA
Magazine and it has a very in-depth interview w/ Al
and Paul. (5 pages)
The magazine is going to be available at TOWER RECORDS
worldwide as well as Borders, Virgin Megastore, Barnes
and Noble as well as hundreds of other locations
So, if you're around any of those stores, definantly pick up the magazine. Zander adds "Al was hilarious in this story. He was animated and a lot of fun.", and that there is a review of the upcoming release....
Jerome Prevost sent me a link to a very interesting Billboard article on Ministry. The article will only be up for two weeks, so I have copied it locally on this site, so it can also be read here.
The upcoming album title does indeed poke at the animosity that some people have towards each other.
Jourgensen has already scoured Ministry's back catalog for the 23-song set list and finalized an eight-piece lineup for the tour.
A very interesting read.....
I hope that everyone has had a relaxing break and have enjoyed their holidays with close ones. I'm trying to make plans myself to go to Toronto for New Years.
Received an email from Rui Almeida a few minutes ago, telling me that the NWO video is available for download. The video is in the MPEG format and comes in at over 56 megabytes! The video can be downloaded here. I don't know how long it will be up for....
Well, after a month's work, it's finally done.
I would like to first thank Shawn Dossett for his advice and patience in all this.
Just some of the changes:
- All content is served from databases - no HTML files exist. One Perl script runs the whole site!
- New look, with a new menu that is compatible with all browsers (Mozilla, Opera, IE).
- Fonts have been cleaned up, especially on the lyrics pages, where it used to be a mess.
- Navigation links on some pages.
- Many pages rewritten: pictures, tributes, albums, lyrics, and more.
- The news pages has been formatted to fit in with the rest of the site.
- Putting the extension .txt on any page will format it in text format.
- Many, many more changes.
Please be patient as some more little glitches need to be worked out.
Email us with any problems, or any opinions on the new look.
Another MP3 for download over on the sound page. It's a Blackouts track called Young Man. Thanks Bisquitodoom!
A discography page is now live on this site here. It was written by J. Warren.
Currently a Bootlegs page is in the works. It will be on this site once it is completed.
I know, I know, it's been a while since an update despite lots of Ministry news going around.
Shawn Dossett and I are working together on getting a new look going on the Ministry site. Most of the pages have been organized better, and they all look better. The new site will be unleashed over the next week or so.
The main feature of the upcoming site is that all the pages are stored in a database.
Let the show begin...

Ministry frontman Al Jourgensen has been lined up to lend his talents to the upcoming new Limp Bizkit album, "Less Is More". Jourgensen is expected to lend his vocals, guitar playing and production talents to two songs from the effort, though it is as of yet unconfirmed it the tracks will be included on the final version of the album when it sees a release on April 01st.

According to record label Ipecac's web site, Paul Barker will be part of a project called "Pink Anvil," to be released on Ipecac sometime next year. Pink Anvil is also opening the second night of Ipecac's annual San Francisco-based New Year's Eve extravaganza.
Don't forget the sample MP3s to Animositisomina here (from there, you can find the lyrics).
Also the rare mp3 is currently I See Red from the Twitch demos, where you can download it at the Sound page.
