Vinyl LP pressing. 2013 release, the sixth album from the Huntington Beach-based Metal band.

Moral Hygiene comes on the heels of Ministry's acclaimed 2018 album AmeriKKKant (hailed by Loudwire as Jourgensen's own "state of the union" address) that was written as a reaction to Donald J. Trump being elected president-though Jourgensen says this new album is more informational and reflective in tone. "With AmeriKKKant I was in shock that Trump won. I didn't know what to do, but I knew I had to do something. Because I believe if you are a musician or an artist you should be expressing what's going on around you through your art. It's going to happen whether you do it consciously or unconsciously. Moral Hygiene however has progressed even further into a cautionary tale of what will happen if we don't act. There's less rage, but there's more reflection and I bring in some guests to help cement that narrative."
Probably one of the best Metal albums ever! Bastards became the eleventh album in a row in the discography of the British Metal band Motörhead, published in 1993. This work turned out to be one of the best in the teams repertoire at that time - fast, hard and with a great variety of compositions. The album was largely "first": the first and last recorded on the label ZYX; first Mickey Dee as the sole drummer; first, produced by Howard Benson.
The Art of Balance is one of the top-selling albums in the Century Media catalog, and the first in that label's history to reach over 100,000 domestic sales and is now over 250,000. This album cycle saw the band on Ozzfest and Headbangers Ball tour. At the time it included drummer Jason Bittner (now in Overkill). Produced by Zeuss (Hatebreed, Queensryche, The Art of Balance includes fan favorites like "Thoughts Without Words" and "Destroyer of Senses".
This 20th anniversary reissue includes a four-panel insert (layout by Tom Bejgrowicz (Misfits, Beastie Boys) with lyrics, credits, photos and liner notes from guitarists Jon Donais (now in Anthrax) and Matt Bachand (Act of Defiance). This RSD Black Friday release, on limited edition colored vinyl with a bonus 7” of two additional songs comes as the band is reuniting end of this year for a special show with talks of more activities next year.
The highly controversial and iconic,Body Count(featuringIce-T) returned on Century Media Records in 2017 with a highly anticipated new full-length produced byWill Putney(Miss May I, Upon A Burning Body).While predecessor Manslaughter was a call to arms and return to power, Bloodlust is a merciless battle, filled to capacity with razor-sharp riffs, street born punk attitude and belligerent lyrics. Mastermind Ice-T is breathing fire and brimstone from the very first to the very last song. Be it the incendiary opening track "Civil War," the gangster anthem "The Ski Mask Way," the sick "Here I Go Again," the thrashing massacre "Walk With Me..." or politically charged stuff like the two video tracks "No Lives Matter" and "Black Hoodie," Bloodlust shows Body Count in peak form, stronger and more furious than ever before.
Ice-Tand cofounder/lead guitaristErnie Chave perfected their mix of thrash, punk and bottom heavy doom across five albums, hitting a zenith with the unstoppableManslaughter, backed by bassist/songwriter Vincent Price, drummer Ill Will (joined in 2009) and new guitarist Juan Garcia of Evildead. They embody the monumental Southern California tradition of street born punk bands like Suicidal Tendencies combined with the aggressive aural napalm of Slayer. From the punk bite of their gold debut through the metallic triumph ofBorn Dead(1994),Violent Demise: The Last Days(1997) andMurder 4 Hire(2006), to the all encompassingManslaughter, which merges the strengths of the band's entire catalog.
Driven by the same iconoclastic, anti-authoritarian and pimp-turned-poet mentality that madeIce-Ta gangster rap pioneer, a platinum artist from the streets and a household name in film and television before "rapper/actor" was a commonly used term,Body Countflipped the script with the same tenacity when they bumrushed heavy metal. The first rumblings ofBody Countwere heard in the eponymous song unleashed onIce-T'sgiganticO.G.: Original Gangsteralbum in 1991, which hit stores just two months after Ice's first major movie role in the modern crime classic,New Jack City. The fierce thrash of the "Body Count" anthem put people on notice that the Megadeth capIce-Twore on MTV wasn't for show: aggressive heavy metal and hardcore is in his blood.
Iron Fist is repositioned as a vital snapshot of Motörhead at a crucial period when they found themselves caught in the tornado ignited by success and, in true Motörhead style, careered into their next phase at such velocity it transcended logic or reason to become this trio's final kamikaze joyride. Forty years later, with fall-out long dissipated and a proper mastering job that avoided it at the time, Iron Fist sounds like prime Motörhead with the gloves and seat-belts off. For sheer velocity, it could be fastest of them all, the ferocious title track earning such an accolade in Kerrang! In it's tribute spread to Lemmy after he passed away. By 1982, punk had been and gone, the new wave of heavy metal sounded squeaky and cliched next to it's grubby godfathers and, while still trouncing all opposition, Motörhead retained that essential ability to laugh at everything, including themselves as they made lightning raids on every sense and orifice with everything cranked to overload. This is the limited edition black & blue swirl vinyl single LP of the album.

Judging from their name,Suicidal Tendencieswere never afraid of a little controversy. Formed in Venice, CA, during the early '80s, the group's leader from the beginning was outspoken vocalist Mike Muir. The outfit specialized in vicious hardcore early on - building a huge following among skateboarders, lending a major hand in the creation of skatepunk - before turning their focus eventually to thrash metal. Early on, the group found it increasingly difficult to book shows, due to rumors of its members' affiliation with local gangs and consistent violence at their performances.
The underground buzz regardingSuicidal Tendenciesgrew too loud for labels to ignore though, as the quartet signed on with the indie label Frontier; issuing Muir and company's classic self-titled debut in 1983. The album quickly became the best-selling hardcore album up to that point; its best-known track, "Institutionalized," was one of the first hardcore punk videos to receive substantial airplay on MTV. 1987 saw the release of Suicidal's sophomore release,Join the Army, which spawned another popular skatepunk anthem, "Possessed to Skate."
Soon after, Suicidal was finally offered a major-label contract with Epic. Third album 1988'sHow Will I Laugh Tomorrow When I Can't Even Smile Today, showed that their transformation from hardcore to heavy metal was now complete, as did a compilation of two earlier EPs, 1989'sControlled by Hatred/Feel Like Shit Déjà Vuwhich marked Robert Trujillo's debut withSuicidal Tendenciesand was their first of three albums to go gold.

Cro-Mags is one of the fundamental names for the birth of the so-called "crossover thrash" subgenre, which synthesized thrash metal and hardcore punk. Cro-Mags' first full-length, The Age of Quarrel, released in 1986, is one of the first albums where the unadulterated energy of hardcore punk is filtered through the aggression and the fury of thrash metal.
