Review of Music Video for Lies, Lies, Lies by Ministry

hipvideopromo.com

The album peaks with “Lies, Lies, Lies”, a remarkably candid statement of disbelief in the official line on the Iraq War and the catastrophic events that led up to it. The song opens with sound clips borrowed from Dylan Avery’s incendiary documentary Loose Change – a powerful touchstone for those who believe the Bush Administration has covered up crucial facts about the 9/11 attacks. Over some of the heaviest beats in Ministry history (and that’s saying something) Jorgensen spits lyrics about government deceit, and punctuates a grinding guitar riff with a guttural cry of “lies!” that sounds as if it’s coming from the burning throat of an infernal judge. His conviction and his outrage are equally scalding.

Here at HIP, we’ve certainly seen our share of anti-administration videos over the past six years. But we don’t think we’ve ever gotten one with more visceral power than director Zach Passero’s hypnotically engrossing clip for “Lies, Lies, Lies”. What’s so remarkable about it is that it isn’t really over-the-top at all – instead, it communicates its message of resistance through gestures of fear and bewilderment. Passero’s stationary camera scans the interior of a quintessential, television-dominated suburban home. As the people inside sit entranced by the motion pictures, an Arab bogeyman stalks the outdoors, just beyond a living room window. The family members respond as they might have been taught in a Cold War video, ducking and covering under the kitchen table. But there’s nothing parodic about this clip, and it’s shot with a curious coldness and a strangely antiseptic feel that leaves no doubt about the director’s feelings. All of the everyday objects inside the house seem to take on a too-still quality – they radiate terror and claustrophobia. Possessed, the eldest boy stares at the camera and fingers at a plastic raygun. In the next shot, he sits in the barber’s chair, shorn of his locks and wearing fatigues. Still in a trance, he leaps up from the chair, and follows a procession of marching skeletons – led by George W. Bush.

The music video comes out June 7th, until then you can find the Ministry single at 911podcasts.com

Here's some inside

Here's some inside gossip:

One of the main leaders of 9/11 truth movement has written a 9/11 anthem to the tune of "Every Breath You Take".

The part that goes:

"I keep crying baby, baby, please..."

Is now:

"I keep crying: people, sheeple, Pleeease!"

Stay tuned ...

has anybody here seen

has anybody here seen Ministry's video for N.W.O.? its hilarious, they got some guy walking around in a huge George H.W. Bush mask making an ass out of himself. and they even sample H.W. on the song saying "a new world order","good and evil,right and wrong" and stuff like that. great song.

by the way, the song NWO is

by the way, the song NWO is from the Ministry album Psalm69.great album.

"gentlemen,we have called

"gentlemen,we have called you together to inform you that we are going to overthrow the United States government."

"do you still think that jet fuel brought down the World Trade Center?bwahahahaha"

"if the government has nothing to hide,why are they afraid to answer a few questions? this story does not add up."

how can you not love this?

well let me tell you that

well let me tell you that the time has come, to pull the trigger on the smoking gun.......

I wish I could have seen

I wish I could have seen Minitry when they played the opther night here with Dead Kennedy's Jello Biafra. I can almost guarantee Jello Biafra is for 9/11 truth. Anyways, I would have loved to have worn a Question 9/11 shirt and passed out 911blogger flyers, but I couldnt make it. Im hoping Minitry is waking young people up. Imagine if Eminem and Marilyn Manson did a 9/11 truth anthem? I know Eminem had the song Mosh and had a lyric on Bin Laden by Immortal Technique, but Im not sure how into 9/11 Truth is.

But there's definately been a variety of bands I listen to who have 9/11 truth related songs(Australian anti corporate industrial legends Snog fo rinstance devote 3 songs to exposing 9/11 on their new album. Dead Prez, PAris, and Immortal Technique have my fave 9/11 songs)

Ministry FUCKING ROCKS! "do

Ministry FUCKING ROCKS!

"do you still think jet fuel brought down the world trade center?"

*vigorously bangs head for 5 minutes*

Ahem. Just had to throw that out there. I missed them, they were just in Seattle on Sunday. Too bad it was in the middle of a 3-day weekend... had to miss it!

yeah man, Immortal Technique

yeah man, Immortal Technique is the greatest political rapper of all time. yeah, i said it. hes much better than Public Enemy ever was(Chuck D never got specific enough), and hes better than Dead Prez(they get too caught up in hating white people,too simplistic).Paris is pretty good though.but Immortal Technique sees the world the way i do.i cant get enough of that second album.especially his anti-MSM song "The 4th Branch". he rips the media a new one on that song.

Translated in

Translated in psychologically tainted philosophy
Conservative political right wing, ideology
Glued together sloppily, the blasphemy of a nation
Got my back to the wall, cause I'm facin' assassination
Guantanamo Bay, federal incarceration
How could this be, the land of the free, home of the brave?
Indigenous holocaust, and the home of the slaves
Corporate America, dancin' offbeat to the rhythm
You really think this country, never sponsored terrorism?
Human rights violations, we continue the saga
El Savador and the contras in Nicaragua
And on top of that, you still wanna take me to prison
Just cause I won't trade humanity for patriotism

[Hook]
It's like MK-ULTRA, controlling your brain
Suggestive thinking, causing your perspective to change
They wanna rearrange the whole point of view of the ghetto
The fourth branch of the government, want us to settle
A bandana full of glittering, generality
Fighting for freedom and fighting terror, but what's reality?
Read about the history of the place that we live in
And stop letting corporate news tell lies to your children

[Hook] It's like MK-ULTRA,

[Hook]
It's like MK-ULTRA, controlling your brain
Suggestive thinking, causing your perspective to change
They wanna rearrange the whole point of view in the ghetto
The fourth branch of the government, want us to settle
A bandana full of glittering, generality
Fighting for freedom and fighting terror, but what's reality?
Martial law is coming soon to the hood, to kill you
While you hanging your flag out your project window

[Talking]
Yeah..
The fourth branch of the government AKA the media
Seems to now have a retirement plan for ex-military officials
As if their opinion was at all unbiased
A machine shouldn't speak for men
So shut the fuck up you mindless drone!
And you know it's serious
When these same media outfits are spending millions of dollars on a PR campaign
To try to convince you they're fair and balanced
When they're some of the most ignorant, and racist people
Giving that type of mentality a safe haven
We act like we share in the spoils of war that they do
We die in wars, we don't get the contracts to make money off 'em afterwards!
We don't get weapons contracts, nigga!
We don't get cheap labor for our companies, nigga!
We are cheap labor, nigga!
Turn off the news and read, nigga!
Read... read... read...
