ABOUT MINISTRY/AL JOURGENSEN
Al Jourgensen, dubbed “godfather of industrial metal,” is an iconic, pioneering rock star, producer, and songwriter, author of a revealing and critically-acclaimed autobiography (“Ministry:  The Lost Gospels According to Al Jourgensen”), a comic book super-hero through his upcoming “The Devil’s Chord” series, has indulged in every rock’n’roll decadence imaginable, survived drug addiction and alcohol abuse, crossed paths with the likes of Madonna, Courtney Love, Robert Plant and Johnny Depp, and is likely the most audacious and defiant person on the planet.
Through his biting and provocative lyrics and music videos, the Cuban-born, U.S.-raised Jourgensen has taken on greed, corruption, hypocrisy, capitalism, conservatism, America’s repetition and persistence of war, the predatory business man and possibly most dangerous of all, the passive observer.
The band has been nominated six times for a Grammy Award, twelve of their studio albums have charted on
Billboard’s Top 200 Albums, and five of the band’s tracks were Top 20 singles, including “Jesus Built My Hotrod” and “N.W.O.”  In addition, the band has had a number of songs on soundtracks including the feature films “The Matrix,” “Saw 3” and “Saw IV,” “Wicked Lake” and “Escape From L.A.,” and the long-running TV series, “N.C.I.S.”  At the specific request of the legendary director Stanley Kubrick, the band appeared in the Steven Spielberg film “A.I.:  Artificial Intelligence,” and wrote the song “What About Us?” for the film.
Having first formed in 1981, Jourgensen disbanded Ministry for good in 2013 after the unexpected death of the band’s long-time guitarist Mike Saccia.
