MINISTRY mainman Al Jourgensen and MINISTRY guitarist/PRONG frontman Tommy Victor were the featured guests on a recent episode of Dave Navarro's Spread TV Internet show on ManiaTV.com. Jourgensen opened up about politics, his upcoming 50th birthday and composing the music for the horror film "Wicked Lake". Plus, Victor gave an update on PRONG's current activities. Watch footage of the appearance below.
The "Wicked Lake" soundtrack will arrive in stores on November 24, 2008 in conjunction with the film's October 7 DVD release.
The Grammy-nominated Jourgensen, who produced the soundtrack, wrote, scored and recorded the music at his 13th Planet studios early this year. While "Wicked Lake" is Jourgensen's debut scoring for a feature film, it's not his first foray into soundtracks, as he wrote and performed tracks for Steven Spielberg's "Artificial Intelligence: AI" (2001), Paul Verhoeven's "RoboCop" (1987) and "The Matrix" (1999) — the soundtrack captured a Grammy.
The "Wicked Lake" soundtrack offers 15 tracks, most from 13th Planet's stable of artists which includes MINISTRY, REVOLTING COCKS, PRONG, ASCENSION OF THE WATCHERS and FALSE ICONS. One gem is a previously unreleased MINISTRY track, "Cuz U R Next", one of the last songs written by the late Paul Raven with Jourgensen, and features Raven on bass. Also on the soundtrack are two REVOLTING COCKS tracks, the brand new "Hookerbot3000", and "Ten Million Ways to Die", from the 2006 "Cocked & Loaded" CD that features BUTTHOLE SURFERS' Gibby Haynes. In addition, MESHUGGAH's "Combustion" and THREAT SIGNAL's "As I Destruct" are featured.
