Fireball Ministry - _FMEP_
(Independent, 2001)
by: Adrian Bromley (7 out of 10)
Stoner rock squadron Fireball Ministry have got a lot of charisma. The dynamic trio also have a lot of rock power. They're on a roll right off the bat, aren't they? Just listen to their five-song _FMEP_ release and you'll be rocking out in no time to songs like opener "King" and "Choker". Sounding like a cross between Fu Manchu (a somewhat more sedated version) and Corrosion of Conformity, Reverend James A. Rota II leads his disciples through five impressive numbers, slowly dishing out distorted guitars, echoing vocal passages and a hypnotic rhythm section. While not as rocking as Sweden act Astroqueen's debut disc _Into Submission_, Fireball Ministry's latest is an interesting ride to take. Not too intense, not too cliche-sounding. A good core sound also helps bring the talent of the band to the surface for us all to enjoy each time out.
