Music

Ministry: Trax! Rarities

Once more into the vault for a double-vinyl showcase of the many faces (and styles) of Al Jourgensen and Co. Culled from the awesome 2015 Trax! Box.

Music

Various Artists: Trevor Jackson Presents Science Fiction Dancehall Classics

Multimedia artist Jackson curates this deep dive into Adrian Sherwood's musical cauldron, from whence dub, Afrobeat, punk, and industrial emerge.

The 100 Greatest Alternative Singles of the '80s: Part 2: 80 - 61

Just imagine songs this extreme making the American Top 40, let alone the Top 10… unthinkable.

Music

Ministry: Trax! Box

The nine hours of early Ministry and co-conspirators on the Trax! Box just doesn’t get old.

Music

Various Artists: Metal Dance 2

Ministry: The Last Sucker

Uncle Al is taking his Ministry moniker and riding off into the sunset, but he's not going quietly.

Music

Ministry: Rio Grande Blood

Like cheap rot-gut, Al Jourgensen gets nastier with age. This is a no-holds-barred rant, both lyrically and musically, targeting the man they call Dubya.

Music

Ministry: Rantology

A.J.'s still pissed off, and that's a very good thing for Ministry, who went from techno/dance to industrial in a... well, snap.

Ministry: Side Trax

Pailhead, 1000 Homo DJs, PTP, and Acid Horse tracks all on one CD.
