After 27 years, 11 studio albums, four Grammy nominations, and plenty of pain, MINISTRY mastermind and industrial metal pioneer Al Jourgensen will lay his longtime band to rest. Indeed, September 18′s “The Last Sucker” will be MINISTRY’s final all-new studio release and will be followed by a 2008 farewell tour, and plenty of free time for Jourgensen to devote himself to expanding his borderland compound, 13th Planet Records.
“I’ve got a lot of side-projects and new projects I want to focus on,” explained Jourgensen. “We have our our own label, 13th Planet Records, we’re building, and I want to sign, produce and collaborate with other artists. Being in the studio writing, recording and collaborating is my favorite part of this snake-oil industry. I’d rather be behind theconsole than behind the mic. Plus, I kinda like the synchronicity of Dubya and MINISTRY riding off into the sunset hand in hand.”
“The Last Sucker” is the third in an unrelenting and uber-critical trilogy aimed at exposing the foils, failures and fabrications perpetrated by the George W. Bush administration. The CD, which follows 2004′s “Houses of the Molé” and last year’s “Rio Grande Blood”, is the final nail in the Dubya coffin. The album was produced and recorded by Jourgensen himself at his 13th Planet compound in El Paso, TX, with musicians Thomas Victor (PRONG) on guitars, Paul Raven (KILLING JOKE, PRONG) on bass and guitarist Sin Quirin (THE REVOLTING COCKS). In addition, Burton C. Bell (FEAR FACTORY) makes a vocal appearance on “Die In A Crash”, as well as the album’s final two songs, “End of Days” parts One and Two.

The song is alright. I’m interested in seeing whether Al cooled off with the explicit Bush bashing. I’d much rather Ministry’s last album to be something more timeless.
