Uit: Breckenridge, CO - Amerika    Genre(s): Experimenteel - (new) wave Metal - industrial metal

Al Jourgensen formed Ministry in 1979 as a post-punk dance unit reconciling his love for fast, aggressive music and admiration for the British New Wave scene.
In 1988, when the headbangers and the hardcore punks were worshipping their respective flavors of Mötley Crüe and Youth Of Today, Jourgensen and Barker crafted The Land Of Rape And Honey, an aural ammo clip that napalmed the walls separating musical idioms, expanded the possibilities of what could constitute as "extreme music," and, in the process, gave birth to America's industrial-rock scene.
When it seemed that the musical landscape was littered with parasites more concerned with their haircuts than trying to match Ministry's raw power, Jourgensen and Barker recorded Psalm 69, a record that emphasized straight-ahead heavy-metal thunder.
Anyone familiar with music trends over the years cannot deny the influence Ministry has wielded. Jourgensen and Barker readily admit that much of their early methodology has since become public domain (see Nine Inch Nails, Static-X, Rob Zombie, ad infinitum). But instead of being bitter and jaded, the duo just redefined their muse. It's been proven for a while: Ministry make the rules - and they can break 'em if they damned well want to.
