Mighty industrial riffs, a thunderstorm of double bass drums, and the angry voice of Al Jourgensen: that's Ministry. The boys kick your ass with every new album. The Ministry trademarks: Industrial Metal bristling with powerful riffs, hard drumming, and socio-critical lyrics. The list of former members is really, really, really long - but nevertheless, Ministry have managed to raise the bar a bit higher with each new album - just think of "Twitch", "Filth Pig", or "Rio Grande Blood" - real evergreens and a must-have for the serious collector of rougher sound.

You will always particularly remember the lyrics by Jourgensen dealing with shitty politicians, mean media, capitalists, or about the simple life - the topics may vary, but they'll always have one thing in common: rage. Take these lyrics, the riffs, the synthie sounds, and the gloomy atmosphere, and you have the essence of Ministry, hailing from Chicago.
