This filthy-sounding industrial acid-dub track was written in response to a gauntlet thrown down by Ministry bassist Paul Barker, and the team behind "FIX: The Ministry Movie".
Voltergeist was announced at the beginning of 2011 as one of two successful artists (along with Canadian industrial superbeasts, Deadly Apples) to secure a place on the "FIX" movie soundtrack album. An exclusive collaborative version between Paul Barker and Voltergeist is featured on the accompanying soundtrack album to the movie.
This is the original track, inspired by (and using samples from) Ministry's "Psalm 69". The bass guitar is performed by Paul Barker.
Review by Shallowrave Blog
"Ever-evolving and mutating, Shallowrave favourite Voltergeist applies his acid-dub stylings to Ministry classic Psalm 69, reinventing the mental-industrial thrash-fest as a brooding, half-time dub stomper. Whilst the original contained some of the Al Jourgensen's most polemical screaming (see above) Voltergeist exorcises the majority of Al's presence from the track, focusing more on the groove and doom, peppering a deep, head-nodding riddim with bass flourishes and spoken word samples.
"Opening with a simple kick pattern and a rolling bassline, Voltergeist introduces layers of noise and static, along with wailing choral riff, creating an tense ominous atmosphere, before a simple snare pattern drags the monster to life. All bubbling subs, dark atmospherics and whispered vocal snatches, it's definitely one of Voltergeist's darkest pieces to date, despite the solid, grinding rhythm.
"Be very afraid."
