"Ministry Guitarist Mike Scaccia Dies After Onstage Collapse

Played on group's most popular album, 'Psalm 69'"


PSALM 69
1 Save me, O God,
for the waters have come up to my neck.
2 I sink in the miry depths,
where there is no foothold.
I have come into the deep waters;
the floods engulf me.
3 I am worn out calling for help;
my throat is parched.
My eyes fail,
looking for my God.
4 Those who hate me without reason
outnumber the hairs of my head;
many are my enemies without cause,
those who seek to destroy me.
I am forced to restore
what I did not steal.


5 You, God, know my folly;
my guilt is not hidden from you.


6 Lord, the Lord Almighty,
may those who hope in you
not be disgraced because of me;
God of Israel,
may those who seek you
not be put to shame because of me.
7 For I endure scorn for your sake,
and shame covers my face.
8 I am a foreigner to my own family,
a stranger to my own mother’s children;
9 for zeal for your house consumes me,
and the insults of those who insult you fall on me.
10 When I weep and fast,
I must endure scorn;
11 when I put on sackcloth,
people make sport of me.
12 Those who sit at the gate mock me,
and I am the song of the drunkards.


13 But I pray to you, Lord,
in the time of your favor;
in your great love, O God,
answer me with your sure salvation.
14 Rescue me from the mire,
do not let me sink;
deliver me from those who hate me,
from the deep waters.

Re: Ministry Guitarist Mike Scaccia Dies After Onstage Collapse
Psalm 69: The Way to Succeed and the Way to Suck Eggs is the common title for the fifth studio album by industrial metal band Ministry, released in 1992 on Sire Records. The actual title of the album is (a Greek word meaning "head", and the number 69 in Greek numerals), though Psalm 69 is used for simplicity's sake. The album gave Ministry a more mainstream audience, with the track "Jesus Built My Hotrod" receiving major airplay on MTV and various other music stations.[specify] Psalm 69 also marked Ministry's first release with guitarist Mike Scaccia, who had joined the band in 1989.

The song "N.W.O." (New World Order) features samples of George H. W. Bush and was used in the Ralph Bakshi live-action/animated film Cool World. It is front man Al Jourgensen's critical take on the state of world affairs after the Gulf War and the end of the Cold War and an uncertain future. "Jesus Built My Hotrod" features guest vocals by Gibby Haynes from the Butthole Surfers. [link to en.wikipedia.org]







The title of the album is directly linked to chapter 69 of The Book of Lies, a written work of Aleister Crowley, where he uses the expression "The way to succeed and the way to suck eggs" as a pun for the 69 sex position ("suck seed" and "suck eggs"). Moreover, Crowley titled the chapter , Greek or "head" and or "69" (both slang in English for oral sex - but not the original ancient Greek words) and is used often in the New Testament. There is no direct link to the Old Testament passage Psalm 69.

Since the album's release, Ministry had put multiple references to the number 69 in future albums. For example, the albums Dark Side of the Spoon and Houses of the Molé both had hidden tracks with a track number of 69.

Re: Ministry Guitarist Mike Scaccia Dies After Onstage Collapse
I remember back in the 80s my friend playing a track off a ministry cassette.we were both amateur musicians . I thought it was ok . I was a rush fan so I guess I was sort of a snob to the new wave of thrash metal bands like them and metallica. I don't know I just can't get into that hypnotic droning music. the same notes over and over and over and over and over and over and over and over again. I like melody. and since I did it pretty much secured my failure as a musician in the modern era UNLESS I wanted to Country or Christian. I look back at that time and wonder how I could of been such a fucking snobbish moron and realized that the next 20 years in popular heavy music will be bands like ministry megadeth and metallica . I kind of regret not selling out to that sound but seeing how Dimebag and this man died I am kinda glad I didn't . RIP brother I hope you had a great time here cause who knows where he is now .

With all the witch symbols on this album cover, where do you think he is now?

What do you think he would tell you if he could deliver a message?

I bet he'd tell you God is real, Hell is real, demons are real, and demons don't keep their bargains. NOBODY receives a kingdom in Hell, except Satan. Everyone who dies without Jesus suffers under the rod of Satan.

Turn from evil, live a right life. Love God above all things, and love others as yourself.

People who have been brought back to their bodies after NDEs, and were in Hell, all say something like the above.

It is no joke.

Demons, and the fools who serve Satan want you to think it is just opiate for the simple minded. Remember, they LIE.
