Ministry at Gas Monkey, Dallas, TX, November 11, 2017

In the wake of Sound On Sound Festival’s cancelation a number of artists set to appear rescheduled to other venues around Texas last weekend. One such band is Ministry who last Saturday took over the Gas Monkey Live music hall in Dallas for a night of blistering aggressive metal. The band played for precisely an hour and launched off on last year’s hit, Punch In The Face, followed by the first track off their upcoming album, Antifa. From there it was a tour of the band’s 36-year history spread across the albums such as Psalm 69, Rio Grande Blood and A Mind Is A Terrible Thing to Taste. Songs like Thieves, LiesLiesLies, and Just One Fix were perfect displays of this band’s feverish and manic metal assault. Ministry is constant, from start to finish a barrage of pulse pounding beats that turns the legions of their most dedicated fans into frothing adrenaline addicts. If there is one complaint to be levied at the show, it felt too short. For a headlining set, it was impossible to escape the feeling that we were short a couple of songs and that one more push from the untouched albums like Relapse or The Last Sucker would have driven the show home. Ultimately the band closed out their set on a cover or Devo’s Gates Of Steel, which was a incredible closer done with heavy tongue-n-cheek ferver.

Growing up around the world, Michael developed a taste and appreciation for all styles of music. While studying film making at Boston University, he dove headfirst into a mosh-pit and never came out. It was in Boston that he combined his love of film and photography with his drive and passion for being a chronicler of the underground music scene. After graduation he headed to Los Angeles and for over a decade has worked with some of the top musicians and actors in the entertainment industry. Lured to Austin by the cultural explosion in the music and film scenes taking place there, he relocated two years ago and describes Austin as a cultural Shang Ri La!
