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.
