Legendary industrial metal act Ministry has unveiled the first single from the band’s upcoming album From Beer to Eternity with the music video for “PermaWar.” Directed by Zach Passero and produced by Angelina Jourgensen at the 13th Planet compound in El Paso, TX, the video features Ministry front man Al Jourgensen assuming various personalities of responsible parties for America’s history of war – these personalities include the corrupt politician, the predatory businessman, and the passive observer. Featured in the backdrop is a pervasive video collage of wartime footage from throughout the last century, including World War II, Vietnam, Afghanistan, and Iraq. The video made its world premiere on rock and metal news site Loudwire on August 16.
From Beer to Eternity is Ministry’s thirteenth and reportedly final album following the death of Jourgensen’s longtime partner and guitarist Mike Scaccia in December of 2012. The album is slated for a North American release on September 10.
