Massive Metal Monday: Fireball Ministry “King”
  |  @   |  

If you like your metal with clean vocals and the sort of high-octane guitar riffage associated with the golden age of metal, then L.A. stalwarts Fireball Ministry may just be your cup of tea.

The band was formed in 1999 and is led by ordained minister Jim Rota, who has performed marriage ceremonies for several other metal stars and is currently producing the third album by Huntress. Fireball Ministry has also had a revolving door of the who’s who of metal, including (among others) Stone Sour bassist Johnny Chow, drum legend Yael, Helen Storer from Fluffy, and Janis Tanaka from L7. My wife and I used to see Fireball Ministry playing small clubs all around L.A. back around the turn of the millennium and even then they sounded like they were ready to tear up arenas.

To date, the band has produced five of the highest energy heavy metal albums in recent memory. Here, from their third album, 2003’s The Second Great Awakening, is Fireball Ministry with the turbo-charged anthem “King.”
