Ministry's Al Jourgensen has returned with a new musical project titled Surgical Meth Machine. The band's debut album, which was released Friday, is a bit on the eclectic side. Sure, there are a few metal/thrash songs -- not unlike Ministry's output from the 90's and beyond -- but there are also several tracks on the album that might seem more in line with some of the awesomely weird shit Uncle Al recorded with his old Wax Trax side projects, particularly Revolting Cocks.  

To illustrate, check out the vivid, campy video for "I'm Invisible" which features a ton of swanky & colorful Al Jourgensens. Oh and there's also a bizarre random moment featuring a Nickelback cd:



This probably won't shock you, but Jourgensen admitted in a recent Billboard interview that he was pretty out of it during the recording of the album:

"We were stoned out of our gourd and deep into existential territory the whole time we were recording, from what I remember of it. For me, though, SMM is songs that write the band and not a band that writes the songs, which is a back-assward way of working, but it seems to work for me. And I’m in a good place right now [thanks to] my California weed card!"

Listen to another track below titled "I Don't Wanna," which reunites Jourgensen with his Lard partner-in-crime Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys):



And finally here's one of the thrashier songs, "Tragic Alert"



Surgical Meth Machine is available now via Nuclear Blast. Order from iTunes, Amazon, or the Nuclear Blast store.
