They're baaaaaaaack. No, really back. With Animositisomina (note the palindrome), veteran industrial metallurgists Ministry make the return to their atomic-energy, bone-splitting roots that longtime fans have been yearning for. This is the band's best album since 1992's Psalm 69. A grand mix of industrial rock and murder metal -- hellfire programming, firestorm axes and voice distortion that'll have you clutching your rosary. Beginning with the electro onslaught of "Animosity," a torrential storm of sound supercharged with founder Al Jourgensen's acid-mouthwashed vocals. Track 2, "Unsung," mixes rasping guitars with sustained vocal wails a la Jane's Addiction's Perry Farrell -- a kind of oil-and-water symbiosis that actually works. The riffy and lurching "Piss" has an old-school Black Sabbath feel, while "Lockbox" could be described as "new school" Sabbath. The chord structures are reminiscent of the heavy metal pioneers but there are added electronic textures and clattering percussion that splatters all over the place like an out-of-control machine that is blowing apart and sending bits and pieces flying in all directions. "Broken" roars like a storm at sea while robotic, distorted vocals echo on as if shouted through a giant megaphone from the distant shore. While still guitar based, this cut shows a more obvious industrial bent. And the wah-wah guitar solo is an exercise in mayhem in and of itself. With a danceable bassline and back beat, and a melodic lead guitar line, "The Light Pours Out of Me" is one of the most musical tracks on the album. Nevertheless it still features automaton vocals (think Gary Numan) and some searing synth work. The cracking, programmed percussion of the menacing, mid-tempo "Shove" adds an army-on-the-march feel to a track that also employs chanting vocals, a graveyard guitar line and ear-splitting feedback. The overall effect is that of some latterday Orwellian nightmare. "Impossible" opens with a piercing electronic effect that stretches the possibilities of stereo to the extreme as the sound flies from speaker to speaker. When it finally fades, a storm trooper guitar assault comes tearing over the hills with full savagery and more stereo hi-jinks. "Impossible" mixes a Faith No More sound with bursts of sonic sandstorms. "Stolen" is an electronic web of noise that Jourgensen's voice fights to filter its way through. The closer, "Leper," is an quasi-epic instrumental with apocalyptic overtones, building steadily from an eery electro opening into a inexorable wall of menacing sound like some roaring death harvester. Definitely not for easy listeners, Animositisomina is a monster disc for those who love their music hard, heavy and painted outside the lines. Ministry are back and their standard reads: Give us mayhem or give us death!
