Synopsis

Product Description
Ministry's 2004 release Houses of the Molé and corresponding world tour The Evil Doer Tour were both met with critical praise and adulation from both media critics and Ministry fans worldwide. Molé and the Evil Doer Tour was a return to form for Ministry main man and founder Al Jourgensen, and both served to re-instate Ministry into the upper echelons of industrial metal. Additionally, Molé was to become the first installment of Jourgensen s political trilogy of terror toward the Bush Administration and the Gulf War.
In retrospect, Molé is eerily prophetic in its anti-war protests. Indeed, the No W video circulating YouTube with over 2 million hits attests to Jourgensen s acute warnings of the danger of the industrial/military complex currently wrecking havoc in 2010.
As much as Molé s title was a tongue-in-cheek reference to Led Zeppelin's Houses of the Holy and Jourgensen's favorite Mexican sauce, it was surely no Southwestern rock n' roll cookbook. Mixxxes of the Molé, however, serves to pick up where Mole left off each re-recorded, re-mixxxed and re-mastered track spicier than the next.
Remixxxer Erie Loch, front man for the band Blownload, which opened for 13th Planet s RevCo on their 2009 Fall Tour, crossed paths with Jourgensen at his 13th Planet compound and the two instantly connected creatively. Jourgensen invited Loch to spearhead the Mixxxes project.
The fifth in a series of 13th Planet remix genre-bending 'trance metal' attack, Mixxxes of The Molé is destined for dance floors all over the world with its punchy metal grooves and way-too-heavy bass lines determined to mosh with the best of solar plexus in the country.
 

CD Reviews

One of the better ministry re-mixes
Concerned One | Clarinda, IA | 08/18/2010
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I received my copy of this yesterday from a pre-order, and have been able to listen to it in it's entirety, and I must say, I am not disappointed with this re-mix album. In comparison to Rio Grand Dub, I think this album keeps a bit more of the aggressive guitar sound and may actually push them a bit more to the forefront in a few of the mixes. It is definitely mixed up with bits of beat box type rhythms (some more than others like the song Wrong), but it manages to keep the original sound to them enough that it feels as if it could have been that classic industrial metal sound that I know from Ministry. This is the third "mixxxed" album in the string of the albums from the Mole, Rio Grand Blood, The Last Sucker trilogy, and I think it is a good addition to any longstanding Ministry fan's collection, or even for a new comer. Hopefully Al won't stay permanently in retirement like Ozzy and come back in a few years with new fresh music for us under this legendary moniker. Favorite Tracks: Worthless, Waiting, World."
