If you don’t have it… get it. It’s a great disc for the UU heads out there to hold them over until the new disc comes out!!!
- (Hed) Pe pride themselves in their station as a rap-metal hybrid who aren t just about a predictable guitar assault with a few tossed in rhymes. The California band truly exists as both hip-hop innovators and metal provocateurs (mixing in a few other styles to boot). It s a mixture best appreciated in the live setting, and the 2008 record (as paired with a DVD) brings you as close to the experienc
Ministry will release a live CD and DVD, both entitled ”Adios” recorded during their Final World Tour 2008! The CD/DVD features live-recordings and performances from Serbia, Warsaw, Los Angeles, Chicago, Germany, Czech Republic and Slovenia. The CD will be released in late March, while the DVD won’t be out until May as it will contain a LOT of bonus-material, on which MINISTRY are still putting the final touches. Progenies of thumping, seminal industrial metal whose legacy can still be heard ringing loudly in everything from Rammstein to Red Harvest. It’s hard to believe that this is their swansong, their last album release, and indeed Ministry go out in style tonight with this album! When Ministry pulls out the big guns it is tantamount to a revelation. The world needs bands like Ministry to be a razor sharp thorn in the side of conservatism, and one of the few bands who truly exuded the kind of punk ethic that’s bandied about by so many but actually lived by so few! Good bye Ministry!

I wish this band put out more stuff, they were pronominal.
Their one CD is off the charts and this live CD was worth picking up. Of course it was used and less than a dollar but hey, you can’t find it anywhere.
If you like them on the CD, the songs sound great live.
Here’s the breakdown:1. Intro, what can I say???2. Wow, this song rocks!! This song started the biggest mosh pit I ever witnessed at a concert.3. The first single. It rocks, and it WILL start a mosh pit, I guarantee it.4. Very depressing, but somehow uplifting. I love it!! Awesome ending!!5. Very heavy and unique!!6. Great song, but it gets better after the second chorus!! Insane guitar and bass lines for more than a minute!!
One of the few bands to emerge from the dreadful nu-metal scene that actually showed promise was the Texas based Union Underground. With a sound that owed as much to that of Alice in Chains and White Zombie, the Union Underground’s debut, 2000’s “An Education in Rebellion”, was a solid debut that was a breathe of fresh air for metal fans at the time, and this live EP nicely displays the band in a live setting for the most part. “South Texas Deathride” and the band’s best cut, “Revolution Man” are the standout live tracks of “Live: One Nation Underground”, as well as the mosh heavy renditions of singles “Turn Me On Mr. Deadman” and “Killing the Fly”, but by the time these six tracks are over, you’ll be wanting more; something which this band failed to deliver. If you liked their debut, you should pick this up, but find it at the cheapest price you can before you buy.
