Fireball Ministry, ‘The Answer’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Fireball Ministry are a heavy metal band out of Los Angeles that have been going strong for nearly 20 years. Today, they’re teaming up with Loudwire to exclusively premiere the video for “The Answer” off their upcoming album, Remember The Story, which is due out Oct. 6 via Cleopatra Records.
The video is a perfect adaptation of the band’s music to a visual format. Throughout the video, the band jams out the heavy riffs of the song in a desert climate. We follow a man who was shot in the gut as he traverses the wide open roads. Along the way he comes into contact with a strange, headbanging figure, who follows him at every turn.
Fireball Ministry frontman James A. Rota has a background in video, film and TV production, having worked on Foo Fighters’ documentary Sonic Highways. Regarding the video, the band states, “We’re really excited to be teaming up again with director Brandon Trost for ‘The Answer’ video. Brandon most recently worked with Jim on the latest two Foo Fighters videos as Director of Photography and he has a visionary way of telling stories set to music.”
As for their music, Fireball Ministry exudes a no-nonsense approach to songwriting, with no gimmicks to get in the way of some classic sounding heavy metal influenced by such bands as Black Sabbath and Thin Lizzy. “The Answer” provides a perfect soundtrack for anyone wanting to cruise down the highway and fight off their demons.
Remember the Story marks the band’s first album in nearly seven years, and after hearing “The Answer,” it’s exciting to see what the rest of the disc will unfold. Pre-order the disc here.

SLAYER TO PERFORM ON SHIP’S DECK STAGE
SEPTEMBER 28 UNDER A BLOOD MOON
MOTÖRHEAD CELEBRATES 40TH ANNIVERSARY
TWO MASSIVE ONCE-IN-A-LIFETIME HEAVY METAL MOMENTS
NOT TO BE MISSED
LINEUP ADDITIONS FOR ‘THE LOUDEST BOAT IN THE WORLD’ INCLUDE
CORROSION OF CONFORMITY AND BRIAN POSEHN
SEPTEMBER 28-OCTOBER 2 CRUISE ON NORWEGIAN SKY
FEATURES SLAYER, MOTÖRHEAD,
ANTHRAX, SUICIDAL TENDENCIES, AND MORE
Guests on the second annual Motörhead’s Motörboat will experience once-in-a-lifetime events with two ultimate heavy metal icons.
On the first night of the cruise, one of the most heavy metal moments of all time will occur when headliners Slayer perform outside on the deck stage of Norwegian Sky under a red blood moon. September 28 at 10:47 PM Eastern Time marks the fourth and final lunar eclipse (sometimes referred to as a “blood moon”) of the current lunar tetrad (a series of four consecutive lunar eclipses with six full moons in between). It is one of only eight tetrads during the 21st century. Some believe this occurrence is a fulfillment of the “Blood Moon Prophecy” and signals “The Rapture,” as described in the Bible in Acts 2:20 and Revelation 6:12. Few bands come close to matching the intensity that Slayer brings to its live shows, with songs that mirror the turmoil and aberrations of our society, so the performance could not be more apt.
In the spirit of the evening, while waiting to see if the “end of the world” prophecy comes true, guests will celebrate “Blood Red Night” by donning something crimson, while enjoying Slayer’s intense performance during this rare astrological phenomenon.
Later in the week (Thursday, October 1), Motörboat guests will celebrate 40 years of the world’s biggest and baddest rock & roll band of all time–along with the release of Motörhead’s 22nd studio album, Bad Magic (due out August 28 on UDR Music/Motörhead Music)–during Motörhead’s 40th Anniversary Bash. Since imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, guests will be invited to dress in their Motörhead best, or even as Lemmy, Phil or Mikkey themselves, while enjoying cake, libations, and of course lots of heavy music in honor of the rock legends.
Motörhead founder Lemmy Kilmister says, “40 years of Motörhead will be celebrated aboard the Motörboat, so boys and girls, you know what THAT means, right? There won’t be a dry throat in the house!”
Motörhead’s Motörboat–fueled by Monster Energy–will embark on its second voyage from Port Miami September 28 on Norwegian Sky, with stops in Nassau and the private picturesque island of Great Stirrup Cay in The Bahamas before returning to Miami on October 2. Visit www.MotorheadCruise.com to reserve a stateroom.
Additional performers have been added to the Motörhead’s Motörboat lineup, which already features some of the greatest heavy rock bands in the world. New to the roster are Corrosion of Conformity (recently reunited with original vocalist/guitarist Pepper Keenan), The Shrine, Others, No Words (featuring guitar prodigy Nik Kai), Butterside, Sonia Harley, The Dead Deads, along with comedians Brian Posehn and Big Jay Oakerson, and late night comedy and band interviews with The S.D.R. Show (Sex, Drugs & Rock-n-Roll Show) with Big Jay Oakerson & Ralph Sutton.
The full lineup for Motörhead’s Motörboat is as follows: Slayer, Motörhead, Anthrax, Suicidal Tendencies, Hatebreed, Exodus, Corrosion of Conformity, Phil Campbell’s All Starr Band, Crobot, Motor Sister, KYNG, Brian Posehn, Fireball Ministry, Huntress, Big Jay Oakerson, The Shrine, Others, No Words, Budderside, Sonia Harley, and The Dead Deads.
Motörhead’s Motörboat offers guests a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to share an experience with their favorite bands and to see unforgettable performances on various stages throughout the ship and on the island of Great Stirrup Cay.
Norwegian Sky offers 13 complimentary and specialty dining options, 12 bars and lounges, a coffee bar, an outdoor pool, and five hot tubs. While onboard, guests can try their luck in the Sky Club Casino, relax in the onboard spa and get their heart pumping in the fitness center or full basketball court.
“…a metalhead’s dream. Think Hard Rock Hell-with-hot-tubs.
On the high seas. With a hard on.”

About Motörhead’s Motörboat: In 2014, the first annual Motörhead’s Motörboat sailed from Miami and visited the port of Cozumel just off Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula. An international, multigenerational audience from over 30 countries came together to celebrate the legacy of the cruise’s iconic namesake and escape into five days of true rock ’n’ roll living with no holds barred, highlighted by a pair of ear-splitting performances from Motörhead themselves. In 2014, “The Loudest Boat In The World” also featured performances from Anthrax, Metal Allegiance, Testament, Down, High On Fire, Kill Devil Hill, Zakk Wylde, Jim Breuer Band, Danko Jones, Fireball Ministry, Wilson and Cilver, as well as a spoken word performance by legendary heavy metal musician, author, and television personality Scott Ian.
