Fireball Ministry were just outstanding on the stage and completely blew me away. I stood directly in front of bassist Janis Tanaka the entire time and was amazed at here old-school heavy metal stage presence and her Geezer-like bass playing.
Likewise the entire band was excellent and pumped up my "metal pride". I almost got into a brawl over one of Janis' picks. Man, I had the thing in my hand! Hey Janis if you ever read this review, I want one of your bass picks! You rule! So what does this have to do with this EP? Nothing really, except that it was because of that show that I began to check into this band further and began an instant search to find this EP, as well as their first independent CD.
While the first three songs aren't much different than the tracks that appear on "The Second Great Awakening", other than some minor production differences, it was the five cover songs that I was most interested in. Proving that these guys come from the same roots as I do, they cover five classic songs. Of course, any band that covers classic Aerosmith and Judas Priest is alright with me.
Fireball's cover of this epic song is slow and doomy, which actually works quite well with this song. Alice Cooper 's "Muscle of Love" is a standout as well, complete with those cool slide bass lines. The thing about covering PriestCooperand Aerosmith is that each of these bands have very distinctive, unique vocalists. James A Rota, however, does a decent job covering them all, especially Halford. It takes some guts to sing "Victim of Changes.
Instead I will just say that their covers are enjoyable! In other words, this CD rocks! How's that for a in depth opinion? I must also make note that Janis Tanaka was not yet a member of the band when this EP was recorded and that all bass was played by Brad Davis of Fu Manchu. A sealed, cardboard sleeve, two-song. There is nothing exclusive to this disc. It's nothing more than a collector's CD for the anal Fireball Ministry fan.
My first introduction to to this band was through reading reviews that labeled this band a Black Sabbath clone. On my first listen of "The Second Great Awakening" I can certainly hear the Sabbath influence, but to call them a clone simply means that the reviewers haven't given this disc a fair amount of spins. Not since Trouble 's fourth self titled disc have I heard stoner rock that is this instantly infectious.
The slow grooves are very reminiscent of Trouble 's signature sound. It is these riffs that make this CD one that has spun many, many times in my CD player since getting it less than a month before writing this review. The vocal delivery, which does sound a bit like Ozzy Osbourne at times, adds so much to the bands overall sound, Fireball Ministry - Où Est La Rock?
(CD. However, this comparison is merely to get the idea of the style of the vocals. Rota II does indeed possess a sound that is all his. While his voice does have some of those smooth qualities that made Ozzyhe also has a distinct way with enunciation and often uses a bit of grit in his voice to bang his lyrical points across. Some of my favorite tracks are "In the Mourning", King" and "The Sinner" although I really think this is one of those discs that is solid from beginning to end.
Unfortunately the lyrics to this album were not included in favor of line-art drawings Album) the band. However, thanks to the world wide web I was able to read through most of them. Despite their name and the title of the CD, this band's lyrical ideas are pretty vague and are open to interpretation, although they do tend to play off the ideas of the church. For a better idea of their lyrical direction, check out the lyrics to "The Sinner" below or go to their website and you can read all the lyrics.
I am not sure that "Their Rock However, I did manage to listen to this CD about 6x within the first three days of owning it, which to me says that there is something about it that kept calling me back for another listen.
With each subsequent listen I began hearing and enjoying the Fireball Ministry - Où Est La Rock? (CD more and more. I did like the fact that the female background vocals were much more discernable on this CD. When I saw Fireball Ministry live in the past, Emily's vocals and at one time Janis' really added something to the overall sound of the band.
I thought this was missing a bit on "The Second Great Awakening", but is very much present here. The songwriting has pretty much stayed the same, with the exception of a few tracks that have moved a bit towards slightly longer songs.
Fireball Ministry are not known for being overly technical or progressive. Personally I find Fireball Ministry - Où Est La Rock? (CD refreshing as the band bucks the current trends in metal where bands feel the need to cram as many riffs into one song as humanly possible. Rather, Fireball Ministry rely on simple riffs and melodies. Having only lived with this CD for a few days, the standout cuts for me are the upbeat "Sundown", the doomy, moody "Hellspeak" and the gritty "Two Tears".
