Synopsis

Amazon.com
This is a six-song live documentation of Ministry's 1989-90 North American tour. It is arguably the band at its peak: the material is drawn exclusively from their two best albums (The Land of Rape and Honey, The Mind Is a Terrible Thing to Taste). The lineup is a virtual "all-stars" of hard electro, including Nivek Ogre of Skinny Puppy, Martin Atkins of Pigface, and singer Chris Connelly. This is not mere rehash, as all the songs boast heavier guitar sounds than their studio counterparts. "Burning Inside" and "Stigmata" are distinctly different, both featuring longer arrangements and additional sound effects. There is also a rotation of singers, with Connelly taking the lead on "So What" and Ogre roaring in front on "Thieves." --Mark McCleerey

CD Reviews

This CD is in a class by itself.

"There is no live CD in existence from any artist anywhere that is as good as this one. Ministry sound better live than other artists sound in a studio. This CD is brutally good.But more to the point:This CD is just brutal.This is the most intense CD in existence, period. Studio or live. Metal, hardcore, thrash, punk, techno, eletronica, industrial, classical: there is no more intense music on the face of the earth. Al J. in the big hat makes Trent Reznor look like a chipmunk.How to cause a heart attack: 1. Wire your CD player's L and R channels through some nice marshall or peavey amps. 2. Crank them very high. 3. Insert In Case You Didn't Feel Like Showing Up and hit play.Your windows will break, your pets will die, your neighbors will melt and you and your friends will soon fall into a pulsating heap on the ground, stimulants notwithstanding."
And I was there...

"I saw Ministry with KMFDM in Atlanta, Georgia at the Masquerade during the "Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste" tour from which this was recorded. ( Although this was not the date recorded.) Before heroin ruined the band. A great concert this was. Truly amazing, genre - defying stuff, it spits in the face of all that came before it, and all that would follow. Heavy metal , but not in a dumb hair-metal kinda way. Industrial/dance, but not in a techno-gay-bar kinda way. It's the porridge that Goldilocks chose. Ministry here are at their peak, as far as live performance goes. And it SOUNDS good, unlike some live albums you come across. Utter perfection."

"I have blown out the speakers of two cars playing this CD on 10. I have had it since it was released and it still makes my ears bleed. I have told my family that this CD will be in my disc player (ratcheted over to Stigmata) when I drive my car off a bridge. Time will stop and I will float suspended in the air forever..."
