Ministry Frontman Al Jourgensen Discusses Sexual Harassment

In the latest in a series of videos posted online by Nuclear Blast, Ministry frontman and founder Al Jourgensen has weighed in on the high profile claims of sexual harassment. Like former U.S. Senator Al Franken, Jourgensen admits he’s done things that he’s not proud of. “But you grow, you learn, you listen,” he says. Jourgensen has taken an objective look at some of his actions from the past that he didn’t consider sexist at the time, but, today’s raised awareness has given him a fresh perspective.

“Now it’s time for the men to buck up and start thinking,” he says. “We’ve slated our society to be exploitative and men have been rewarded by this system, but now, we’re starting to think.

“It’s not going to be an overnight thing, but at least start thinking. ‘Ok, I remember this party back, maybe 10 years ago where I did…yeah…I see that that was weird, I can see where I could have possibly weirded someone out…’ just that is a step forward. Just for a man to think ‘you know what? That was fucked up.’ That’s a step forward and that’s where we need to be and that’s what these discussions that are happening right now are doing…hopefully.”

GWAR premieres video for “I’ll Be Your Monster” via HowardStern.com

– October 19th, 2017 –

The wait is almost over, GWAR are set to release their latest opus The Blood of Gods tomorrow (October 20th) via Metal Blade Records. Today they have teamed up with HowardStern.com, the online home of the Howard Stern Show, for an exclusive premiere of their new video for “I’ll Be Your Monster.” Get a first look at the video, directed by David Brodsky of MyGoodEye, here: facebook.com

GWAR are set to return to the The Howard Stern Wrap Up Show this Halloween, Tuesday October 31st. The band is set to perform two songs, including their new single “I’ll Be Your Monster” and another special song. The show is hosted by Gary Dell’Abate and Jon Hein and airs at 11:00AM EST on Howard 100 and Howard 101 on SiriusXM and repeats throughout the day.

The Blood of Gods is available for pre-order at metalblade.com/gwar. Digital pre-orders come with instant downloads of “Fuck This Place,” “El Presidente” and “I’ll Be Your Monster.”

GWAR are set to return to the long road starting tomorrow on “The Blood Of Gods Tour,” which kicks off in Richmond, VA. The first leg of the tour features support from Ghoul, Doyle and U.S. Bastards, and the second leg of the tour will feature Ghoul, He Is Legend and U.S. Bastards. The tour runs through December 10th in Detroit, MI. A complete list of dates can be found below.

GWAR‘s new album is being hailed by critics as the greatest sonic event since the Big Bang. The Blood of Gods chronicles the massive battle between GWAR and the forces of all that oppose them. Along the way, the band challenges the sins of humanity from politics, pollution, and organized religion, to fast food, and factory farming. Humans are shown as what they are: a parasitic disease that must be eradicated before they suck the planet dry!

The Black Dahlia Murder lands on international charts with new album, ‘Nightbringers’

– October 17th, 2017 –

The Black Dahlia Murder recently released their new album, Nightbringers, via Metal Blade Records; for their efforts, the band has now entered the worldwide charts! See below for all positions:

#8 Billboard Top Current Albums (USA)
#9 Billboard Top Albums (USA)
#2 Internet Albums (USA)
#3 Current Hard Music Albums (USA)
#3 LP Vinyl Albums (USA)
#3 Independent Current Albums (USA)
#4 Current Rock Albums (USA)
#6 Independent Current Albums Consumption (USA)
#15 Current Digital Albums (USA)
#16 Digital Albums (USA)
#35 Billboard Top 200 (USA)
#2 Hard Music Charts (Canada)
#12 Top Album Charts (Canada)
#17 Top Digital Charts (Canada)
#22 Rock/Metal Albums (UK)
#47 (Germany)
#97 (Switzerland)

To preview and purchase the album, please visit: metalblade.com/tbdm – where an exclusive interview with front-man Trevor Strnad (written by Kim Kelly) can also be viewed. Read on for some reviews of the critically acclaimed Nightbringers:

“‘Nightbringers‘ is the album of the year.”MetalSucks.net

“‘Nightbringers‘ makes for one of the band’s best records… if not their best.”MetalInjection.net

“…’Nightbringers‘ is without a doubt the band’s best release since their 2007 breakthrough.”NoCleanSinging.com

“While the Black Dahlia Murder have always been an impressive band, ‘Nightbringers’ finds them on top of their game and performing better than ever before.”Exclaim.ca

Rather than meticulously plan things out or stick rigidly to any kind of template, when it comes to writing, The Black Dahlia Murder prefer to let things happen organically. In the hands of guitarist Brian Eschbach – who co-founded the band with front-man Trevor Strnad in 2001 – and new recruit Brandon Ellis (Arsis, ex-Cannabis Corpse), Nightbringers is rich with dynamic riffs that are at once fresh and classic The Black Dahlia Murder, resulting in a collection that shifts through many moods and effortlessly incorporates various elements of extreme metal. While Strnad explores a variety of themes and ideas with his lyrics, they are united by the album’s title, which embraces a tenet that has been central to The Black Dahlia Murder‘s output since the very beginning. “Death metal and nighttime are synonymous to me,” Strnad explains. “We are the rulers of the darkened hours that the Christian good fears. A lot of archaic ideas that are still upheld – such as marriage and monogamy – came from Christianity, whether people want to acknowledge it or not, and to me, death metal has always been bucking that. It’s ‘being-the-villain music’, because we’re the enemy of Christianity, the enemy of all that is good and traditional. Death metal is for free thinkers, it’s for showing people the path to inner strength and operating on your own will, instead of being told what to do and living in fear, and songs like the title track and ‘Kings Of The Nightworld’ are about leading a legion of awakened minds into battle.”

The Black Dahlia Murder is currently on tour in North America, with Suffocation, Decrepit Birth, Necrot, and Wormwitch joining them on the run as support. See below for all upcoming dates.
