In its early days, Ministry was identifiable by its heavy synth-pop material in line with the new sounds and technology that were being developed in the ‘80s. Ministry’s output began with four 12” singles on Wax Trax! Records in 1981 before the first LP  With Sympathy  in 1983 via Arista Records. As time progressed however, so did Ministry, quickly developing a harsher, and more stylized sound that the band soon became infamous for on seminal albums  Twitch  (1986),  The Land of Rape and Honey  (1988), and  The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste  (1989). With the release of  Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and The Way to Suck Eggs  (1992), Ministry hit an all time high in the mainstream musical realm and received its first Grammy nomination. In total, Ministry has been nominated for a Grammy award six times. After an indefinite hiatus in 2013, Ministry’s latest album, 2018’s  AmeriKKKant , continues to reflect Jourgensen’s views on the frightening state of society and politics. With the latest lineup featuring Sin Quirin and Cesar Soto on guitars, John Bechdel (Killing Joke) on keys, Derek Abrams on drums and the newly appointed Paul D’Amour (Tool) on bass, Ministry continues touring and recording in 2019 with new music and a few more surprises planned.

Alternative Press Premieres New Music Video From Los Angeles Hard Rock Act Evol Walks

Blues Rock Track “The Fire” Is Featured On The Band’s New EP, “Our Time Is Now” With Writing Contributions From Members Of Black Veil Brides, Atreyu And The SuperJesus, And Hailed As “ Immediately Entrapping” By The Rock Pit Originally From Australia, Female-Fronted Band Prepares For New Music, Tour Dates   Music tastemakers  Alternative Press  today exclusively premiere the brand-new music video for  “The Fire”  from on-the-rise hard rock act  Evol Walks.  Originally from Australia, and now based in Los Angeles, the explosive five-piece is lead by frontwoman  Leah Martin-Brown  and features lead guitarist  Dre DiMura,  rhythm guitarist  Logan Nikolic,  bassist  Eliot Lorango  and drummer  Jimmy Lee  who are influenced by bands like  AC/DC, Monster Magnet, The Pretty Reckless  and Black Sabbath.

The one who will happily play with your emotions and watch you suffer. 'The Fire' is meant to be a modern response to tracks like 'Soul Stealer' by AC/DC or 'Sorrow' by David Bowie, 'Devil Woman' by Cliff Richard etc. I really wanted to write something from that perspective, kind of owning the character and showing that maybe it isn't such a terrible thing to be a bad girl.”  Watch the exclusive premiere on the  Alternative Press  website here:   https://www.altpress.com/features/evol-walks-the-fire-video/    “The Fire”  is featured on  Evol Walks  new EP,  “Our Time Is Now,”  released on January 18th and produced by  Erik Ron  ( Godsmack, Motionless in White, Sylar, New Years Day ) and featuring writing contributions from  Jake Pitts  ( Black Veil Brides ),  Dan Jacobs  and  Travis Miguel  ( Atreyu ) and  Tim Henwood  ( The Superjesus, Rogue Traders, Palace of the King ).
