Today it’s exactly 27 years ago Ministry released N.W.O. (New World Order)!
Today it’s exactly 27 years ago (27.07.1992) Ministry released the first single, N.W.O. (New World Order) taken from their fifth studio album ΚΕΦΑΛΗΞΘ better known as Psalm 69. The single is considered Ministry's biggest hit, topping out on the Billboard Modern Rock chart at no. 11. The song was nominated for the Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance in 1993.
The song is widely regarded as a protest against then-President George H. W. Bush. The song features audio samples of his voice, with him repeating "A new world order" over and over again at the end of the song. At this point of the song in the music video, Bush is portrayed by an actor with an enormous papier-mâché head, grabbing his crotch and waving his arms. Samples from Apocalypse Now are included in this track: Dennis Hopper's character exclaiming "It's alright!" as the patrol boat is approaching the colonel's fort, as well as the siren that was used during the scene. There is also a loop of the guitar solo coming from a transistor radio in the grenade launcher's bunker.
Next to the album version and the over eight minute long Extended Dance Mix of the title track, there's also the non-album bonus track Fucked writen by Paul Barker and Howard Beno.The cover artwork was designed by Paul Elledge.

All the locals hide their tears of regret
Open fire 'cause I love you to death
Sky high, with a heartache of stone
You'll never see me 'cause I'm always alone
How to love without a trace of dissent
I'll buy the torture 'cause you pay for the rent
Tied high with a broken command
You're all alone to the promised land
I'm in love with this malicious intent
You've been taken but you don't know it yet
What you will know must never live to be found
'Cause it's the subject of the eyes of the clown
writen by: Al Jourgensen / Paul G. Barker
Tonight! Dark Entries Night @ Kinky Star with Dead Man's Hill & Causenation!
The Kinky Star in Ghent and gothzine Dark Entries regularly organize the Dark Entries Nights, free performances by bands from the local wave and electro scene. This evening is the 23rd edition and there’s dark ambient and EBM on the programme.
Dead Man's Hill is a cult in Poland and Russia. Bart Piette's project started in 1998 as dark ambient and martial but gradually became more symphonic. Since 2013, Els also plays in the band. They will not only bring songs from their extensive repertoire but also new songs.
Causenation started in 2015. Initially, they wanted to make music in the Belgian EBM tradition but gradually they took a more dark turn. It is the first time the group will perform since they became a trio consisting of Vain Sancrosanct, 0.77 and Talking Jazz.
The performances will take place on Friday 29th June at The Kinky Star, Vlasmarkt 9 in Ghent. Entrance is free. Afterwards an after-party takes place with DJ Drexl

British alternative rock outfit, Shriekback, will release new album ‘Why Anything? Why This?’ on 25th May!
Seminal British alternative rock outfit, Shriekback, will release their new album ‘Why Anything? Why This?’ on 25th May.
This 14th studio album, which boasts a wide, organic and detailed sound, is already being described by early listeners as their best since the landmark album ‘Oil & Gold’.
However you describe it, this is Shriekback refocused, reinvented and reinvigorated.
About Shriekback :
Shriekback was formed in 1980 by ex-XTC keyboardist Barry Andrews and bassist Dave Allen on his departure from Gang Of Four, in collaboration with guitarist Carl Marsh from Out On Blue Six.
In 1982 they released their first full-length album ‘Care’ and eventually achieving wider recognition with the singles ‘Lined Up’ and ‘My Spine (Is The Bassline)’. In 1983, they were joined by drummer Martyn Barker (King Swamp, Billy Bragg).
A move to a major label, Arista, allowed the band to fully realise their sound on ‘Oil & Gold’(1985), a milestone album that remains the band’s best-known (helped by the success of the single ‘Nemesis’) and the foundation of their popularity on the US college circuit and elsewhere.
New collaborator Scott Firth (of P.i.L) adds irrefutable bass to selected tracks, while Shriekback regulars Wendy and Sarah Partridge contribute their ever-invaluable backing vocals.
As a teaser, they are previewing the first single ‘And The Rain’, along with a darkly intriguing video filmed by Howard Davidson (a.k.a. Hodah). Check it out below!
