THE DIG INTERVIEW: AL JOURGENSEN OF MINISTRY

“We just adapted to the circumstances that we were in and we still made what I think is a pretty relevant album.”. There are bands and musicians who are considered forerunners, innovators, and pioneers, and then there’s Ministry, who literally created their own style of music during the ’80s. Their blend of synthy new wave and raw heavy metal is known these days as industrial, and with a rotating cast of musicians Al Jourgensen has kept things interesting for nearly half a century.

‘Our record label wanted Ministry to be Wham!’ says Al Jourgensen

Ministry mainman Al Jourgensen says that his former record label wanted Ministry to sound like Wham!. As long-time fans of the band will be aware, Ministry’s debut album, 1983’s With Sympathy, bears very little resemblance, sonically, to the pulverising industrial-metal assaults which the Chicago group would become infamous for, being largely composed of mildly-funky synth-pop. Answering questions from Metal Hammer readers in this week’s new issue (due on-sale on September 16) Jourgensen revisits his band’s dodgy pop past, and lays the blame squarely at the feet of his former label, Arista.
