As Ministry’s website FAQ declares “everything it has created since
its inception has been an evolution of musical insurgence.”
Al Jourgensen, the architect
and provocateur of Ministry, employed a cacophony of sounds from
tape loops and audio sampling to incendiary guitars and distorted
vocals to confront the banal and the apathetic mainstream of
Jourgensen and company have done just that over the course of twelve
albums and countless worldwide tours, as seminal figures in
Industrial Metal and torchbearers for a genre that has spawned
countless musical progeny since Ministry’s formation in the early
farewell concert trek, the "C-U-LaTour", concluded in
Dublin, Ireland in July 2008.
Ministry was nominated for a 2008 Grammy Award in the
category of Best Metal Performance.
Ministry have created a special remix of the “NCIS Theme” that is
exclusive to NCIS: The
Official TV Soundtrack.
