Definition funny of Ministry:
Highly influential Industrial Metal act, with the core members being Al Jourgenson and Paul Barker. During the early 80's, it was just Al, and he was ripping off bands like Depeche Mode. Around 1986, though, he decided to go for a darker synth style. Then Barker joined and the rest as they say is history. Very active during the '80s and early '90s, but then they took a break. Recently Barker has left the band, but Jourgenson backed by a new band, is making music more frequently again. Their lyrics often attack politicians and religious fanatics.
Ministry's best albums are The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, Filth Pig, and Psalm 69.
A synth pop group from the early 80's that ended up going in a completely different direction, becoming one of the greatest Industrial metal bands ever by the late 80's and early 90's. Trent Reznor from Nine Inch Nails would later rip them off when he created the Broken album.
An obscure 80's Synthpop group that became a mainstream 2000's Thrash metal band.
Ministry are the very definition of a band that has gone through major evolution.
Since there seems to be no fucking decent definition of Ministry that is clear and unbiased in just its description (seriously guys?) I'm going to add one. Ministry was an influential post-industrial band, formed in 1981 as a synthpop group, releasing a record titled "With Sympathy" that was received mostly well. In the mid 80's, the group transitioned. Synthpop to EBM. They released an album called "Twitch", which again was well received. Then came their most experimental and lauded work: "The Land of Rape and Honey", which paved the way for Ministry to be a prolific post-industrial band. Before recording this, Al Jourgensen dropped his faux British accent. The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste is often considered to be a fantastic example of an Industrial Metal style Ministry. However, this was short lived: in the early 90's after a falling out with some kid named Trent Reznor (who I'm only bringing up because you guys can't seem not to) who Al had befriended and worked with, Ministry released an album that begun to alienate the audience, called "Psalm 69". Its style was different, bearing a Thrash Metal tinge with Industrial Metal framework. It was in this same year, 1992, that Nine Inch Nails' "Broken" released. Regardless of your feelings about either work, they were not only the records to bring Industrial Metal/Rock into the spotlight, but they opened doors, and a lot of you fuckers probably wouldn't know about any of this music before this point.
