SPECIAL PREMIERE OF MINISTRY'S NEW IN CONCERT DOCUMENTARY DVD SET FOR MAY 24 IN BERLIN
Al Jourgensen and Ministry overcame punctured lungs, seagull attack, broken-down buses and fractured bones to keep their final world tour - "C U LaTouR 2008" - on the road last year, and now they want you to be part of the release party for the double-DVD-set that captured it all, Adios...Puta Madres.
On Sunday, May 24, Adios...Puta Madres will be premiered at the Dot Club in Berlin, Germany, presented by Jourgensen's own 13th Planet Records and Roax Films. Hosting the soiree will be Hector Saenz, who not only directed and edited the Adios...Puta Madres documentary, but will also perform a live VJ set from original tour material.
In addition to the premiere of the documentary, DJs will spin old school industrial/goth metal throughout the night. And if that isn't enough, DVDs and Limited Edition T-shirts will be available as well.
The evening's festivities will kick off at 8 o'clock (20:00), so make sure you get there early to secure your spot.
The double DVD disc Adios...Puta Madres is distinguished by secondary titles: the Adios...Puta Madres/En Vivo? disc contains 15 live performance tracks, and Adios...Puta Madres/Fuchi Requiem is a 45-minute on-the-road "rockumentary" that follows the band from rehearsals all the way to their final shows in Europe. Backstage bits, interviews, and live footage abound, while the DVD contains some extra tracks not on the live CD.
Adios...Puta Madres is an audio/video treat for fans, as nothing but state-of-the-art equipment was utilized during its recording. Ministry traveled with two high-end Digidesign mixing desks - one for on-stage monitors and one for front of house. For the front of house rig, a 56-channel ProTools rig was added, so the entire show could be recorded in 56 channels and put into hard drives. That way, Al could mix it in the studio after the tour, which is precisely what he did... after all the smoke and tinnitus had cleared.
While MINISTRY's studio albums certainly show why the group is considered a stylistic trailblazer, it is on the concert stage that Ministry takes things to a whole other level. And as evidenced by fans that packed venues to catch the group one final time on their worldwide "C U LaTouR 2008," the Al Jourgensen-led band was slaying crowds up 'til the final note.
So, how does Jourgensen compare Adios...Puta Madres to previous Ministry live discs? "I lived it and mixed it. After that - it's up to you guys to decide that." Be at the Dot Club on May 24 to weigh in.
