Ministry: '99 Percenters' Video Released
According to, Ministry's "99 Percenters" video can be seen below. The song comes off the band's new album, "Relapse", which will be released on March 26. The CD was recorded last fall at Al Jourgensen's industrial compound studio in with his favorite co-conspirators Mike Scaccia (Rigor Mortis), Tony Campos (Static-X), Tommy Victor (Prong) and Casey Orr (Rigor Mortis, GWAR). Thirty years and 12 albums later, as well as a near-death experience in 2010, Jourgensen rises as a phoenix from the ashes with "Relapse" - still angry, still political and very very pissed off. Relapsing back into the music industry after a four-year hiatus, Jourgensen launches his audio assault with "Ghouldiggers", a no-holds-barred metal bullet aimed directly at the pitfalls of the industry he has survived. Everything Jourgensen predicted on "Houses Of The Mol", "Rio Grande Blood" and "The Last Sucker" has transpired and as we approach the Mayan calendar of the End of Days in 2012, Jourgensen, re-invigorated by the global 99 Percenters and Occupy Wall Street movement, navigates through "Relapse" once again as a reluctant prophet accusing, dissecting, cajoling and exhorting greed, corruption and lies. Reaching back to his punk rock roots, Jourgensen and his Ministry pirates cover S.O.D.'s "United Forces" - a track written 20 years ago still relevant today as a call to arms for the unrighteous and to those who feel disenfranchised by the "system" as it stands today. Cited as the driving force behind a cross-section of metal genres from industrial's Nine Inch Nails and Static-X to nu metal's Korn, Linkin Park and Limp Bizkit, and receiving six Grammy nominations for "Best Metal Performance", Jourgensen returns with his greatest achievement to date with "Relapse". "Relapse" track listing: 01. Ghouldiggers 02. Double Tap 03. FreeFall 04. Kleptocracy 05. United Forces 06. 99 Percenters 07. Relapse 08. Weekend Warrior 09. Git Up Get Out 'n Vote 10. Bloodlust 11. Relapse Defibrillator Mix (Special Limited Edition)
