Fireball Ministry Join Forces With Ripple Music to Re-issue Classic Albums


LA heavy rockers, Fireball Ministry, have joined the Ripple Music record label roster for the reissue of their most iconic albums, as part of the label’s new “Beneath The Desert Floor” series. Ripple Music will soon unveil more info about the album reissues, but you can read more about the band right now, in the article below.

 

Says the band: “Fireball Ministry is thrilled to join forces with Ripple Music to release some of our classic albums on vinyl, and share our music with new ears through the Beneath The Desert Floor series.

 

Following on from the recent launch of its “Beneath The Desert Floor” series, Californian label Ripple Music is happy to welcome Fireball Ministry to its roster for the upcoming reissue of some of the band’s iconic records.

 

For nearly two decades, a subversive clandestine cadre of true believers from all walks of life has spread the good word about the band. Fireball Ministry asked an important question with their debut in 1999: Ou Est La Rock? In 2001 they released an EP on Small Stone Records, FMEP. Four years later, the rumble rang louder from the underground, with MTV News taking notice of The Second Great Awakening (Nuclear Blast).

 

Their Rock Is Not Our Rock (Century Media), released in 2005, was recorded at Dave Grohl’s 606 West studios, and like their previous album, produced by genre legend Nick Raskulinecz (Rush, Foo Fighters, Alice In Chains). In 2010, Fireball Ministry released their self-titled fourth studio album Fireball Ministry (Restricted), produced by Andrew Alekel (Clutch, Fu Manchu), followed by Remember the Story in 2017 (Cleopatra Records). The band remains determined to define success on their own terms, forging ahead with lives free from artistic compromise. Never forget to Remember the Story.

More from Frieball Ministry:

Founded by by James A. Rota II (The Company Band, Dream Widow), Emily J. Burton (Black Sabbitch), Scott Reeder (ex-Kyuss, The Obsessed) and John Oreshnick, Fireball Ministry has truth and rock n’ roll valor imprinted in their DNA, with a mixture of East Coast and Midwestern roots stirred into their California melting pot. From the outset, the band has aggressively steered clear of pretension. They move ever forward with a clear focus on bottom-heavy tunes, channeling timeless hard rock without falling into the traps of mere imitation or novelty. As such, they have earned the respect of many fellow artists, and a legion of dedicated fans has built in their wake.

 

Sabbath-soaked rhythms, Priest-worshipping melodies, and no-nonsense Thin Lizzy mayhem collide in the Hollywood, California band, a group that has humbly but confidently flown the flag for rock authenticity since the hard-partying year of 1999. The list of legendary icons that have invited Fireball Ministry to share their stages reads like a crucial discography of desert island riffs: Blue Oyster Cult, Uriah Heap, Alice Cooper, Judas Priest, Slayer, Danzig, Anthrax, Rob Zombie, Motörhead, Dio, and Zakk Wylde’s tribute trio, Zakk Sabbath. They’re an essential part of the festival landscape, regularly appearing at crucial events like Psycho Las Vegas and Motörhead’s Motörboat cruise. The WWE and the people who made Sons of Anarchy are among the true believers who’ve adopted Fireball Ministry anthems as battle cries in their programming.

 

Fireball Ministry lineup:

James A. Rota II – Vocals/Guitar

Emily J. Burton – Guitar/Backing Vocals

Scott Reeder – Bass

John Oreshnick – Drums

Corrosion of Conformity – Orange Goblin – Fireball Ministry – Black Moth: Live at The Engine Rooms, Southampton


Leeds’ very own Black Moth began the evening with a rather truncated set of quality Stoner Metal. They didn’t have that much time, and yet the set was both thunderous and compelling, even if there wasn’t much of it, as lead singer Harriet Bevan noted with some annoyance before their last song. The end result was like having a nice slice of rich, dark chocolate fudge cake only to have it cruelly snatched away mid-munch by evil scheduling goblins. It was all too good for such a brief opening set.Continue reading

Welcome To Rockville 2018 Live At Metropolitan Park


 

What happens when you take a tired musician and send him to Welcome to Rockville? You AMP him beyond belief, yes pun intended. As I stood in line waiting to get into the venue, I could feel the wave of emotions in the air. Shouts of joy and chants from all over, spurred on by local rock hype group “The Rockvillans”, were just the tip of what I was about to experience.
