Ministry played their final concert at the Tripod in Dublin, Ireland on 19 July 2008 and split-up later that year. They announced a reunion on 7 August 2011. Devastated to continue on without guitarist Mike Scaccia, Ministry split-up once again after they released their new album From Beer to Eternity in September 2013. However, they reunited in 2014.
Ministry have been regarded as one of the pioneers of the industrial rock
Al Jourgensen got the band name from the b-movie titled Ministry of Fear.
Al Jourgensen goes by a number of pseudonyms which include Alain Jourgensen, Alien Jourgensen, Hypo Luxa (his alias as a music producer), Dog, Alien Dog Star and Buck Satan.
The band started playing new wave style music (coming from the demise from Al Jourgensen’s first band Special Affect). Over time, during the early 1980s, Ministry had evolved to what is now industrial music.
In 1989, with the album The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, Ministry began to incorporate more metal elements into their sound. Ministry were one of the first to incorporate guitars into industrial music.

Profile: Ministry is the brainchild of Al Jourgensen. Beginning in 1981 playing synth pop with a strong disco influence, they released their first 12″ on Wax Trax! Records, before being signed to Arista and releasing their debut “With Sympathy” in 1983. After a falling out with the label and the direction of the project, Jourgensen returned to Wax Trax! Records to release a series of 12″ Singles, including “All Day

Jourgensen then signed to Sire Records in 1985. Ministry’s second album “Twitch” was produced by Adrian Sherwood and had a more menacing sound reflecting Jourgensen’s interest in the international EBM (electronic body music) scene of the time. Ministry’s third album, “The Land Of Rape And Honey” (1988,) was both a natural evolution of their aesthetic and a sharp break with previous pop tendencies and, with the arrival of Paul Barker and other new members, Ministry’s sound developed into a crossover between EBM, industrial, and heavy meta. Their experimentation with heavy metal was then continued with the following “The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste” (1990), where the guitar began to take on much more importance to their sound. Ministry’s breakthrough album, “ΚΕΦΑΛΗΞΘ” (1992), was a very dark, powerful, and violent album, that saw the band moving further into thrash metal while still retaining elements of industrial music and noise. The following records “Filth Pig” (1996) and “Dark Side Of The Spoon” (1999) showcased a much more straightforward heavy metal sound, to lower sales than previous records. The band released their first best of collection entitled “Greatest Fits” (2001) and were then dropped by Warner Bros. Records.

In 2003, the band then moved to Sanctuary Records and released “Animositisomina”. Paul Barker left the band in January 2004, leaving Jourgensen to put together a new line-up for “Houses Of The Molé”. After the 2004 Evil Doer Tour, there was yet another change in personnel with Prong founder Tommy Victor on guitar and Paul Raven (who had also played in Prong and in Killing Joke) on bass. In may, 2006, Ministry released “Rio Grande Blood” which was quickly followed by what was announced as their final album, “The Last Sucker”, in 2007, and a collection of covers entitled “Cover Up” in 2008.

Despite Jourgensen’s claim that the band was over, 2010 saw another collection, mixing covers and remixes, entitled “Undercover”. Following a serious illness, Al Jourgensen decided to restart the band with Mike Scaccia and two new Ministry albums followed, “Relapse” in 2012 and “From Beer To Eternity” 2013. Scaccia’s death in 2012 had apparently brought a final, definite end to the band with the 2013 album until early 2017 when Jourgensen began working on a new album, tentatively titled “AmeriKKKant.”
