MINISTRY Posts “PermaWar” VideoFriday, 16th August 2013
Industrial metal legends MINISTRY have posted the video for “PermaWar,” a track from their forthcoming From Beer to Eternity album. The video can be viewed below.
The “PermaWar” video is an amalgamation of provocative news images culled from World War Two, Viet Nam, Afghanistan and Iraq, and a bad acid trip. MINISTRY frontman Al Jourgensen is featured in the video portraying three different personalities, representing three different points of view on America’s repetition and persistence of war: the corrupt political leader, the predatory business man, and possibly most dangerous of all, the passive observer.
The “PermaWar” video was shot in July at Jourgensen’s 13th Planet compound in El Paso, Texas, produced by Angelina Lukacin-Jourgensen and directed by filmmaker/animator Zach Passero whose credits include MINISTRY’s “Lieslieslies”, “GhoulDiggers” and “99 Percenters”, REVCO’s “Fire Engine”, and the feature film “Wicked Lake”.
From Beer To Eternity is set for a September 10 release (AFM/13th Planet Records), and features the final studio recordings by longtime MINISTRY collaborator guitarist Mike Scaccia.
