Fireball Ministry

Biography


Conceived in Cincinnati in the late '90s by James A. Rota II and Emily Burton, the band moved to New York City before settling in Los Angeles. After several years appearing with various big name bands in the genre (Danzig, Anthrax, Motörhead, Slayer) but without a breakthrough in sales they have found their own sound and are fast gaining a wider following. The tracks "King" and "Flatline" appeared in the big wave surfing documentary Billabong Odyssey (2003). The track "King" was also selected by Bam Margera and appeared on his Viva La Bands compilation (further reading...)

I found about these guys from soundtrack on Smackdown VS. Raw 2006 "The Broken"

Fireball Ministry aren't an amazing group but they're pretty good for me. And amongst all the retro/stoner rock groups out there these guys are not reliant on funny cliches about drugs or psyhedelic imagery (kind of stuff you hear on so many stupid 'sabbath worship' bands).Also Fireball Ministry are not known for being overly technical or progressive they rely on simple riffs and more melodies not like current trends where bands feel the need to cram as many riffs into one song





 



I recommend Fireball Ministry for fan of classic late-era Black Sabbath and Motorhead ,you will not be disappointed..

They encapsulate that classic rock/metal sound all right.
I'd say their live gigs are great.
