Ministry is the legendary industrial metal band founded in 1981 by Al Jourgensen in Chicago. In its earliest days, the band began as a new wave synth pop group but in the mid-1980s ended up changing styles, signing to Sire Records and becoming one of the pioneers of industrial metal. In 1988, the band recorded their second album for Sire, The Land of Rape and Honey, which used synth, tape loops, drum machines, heavily distorted guitar and bass, and movie dialogue to great effect—furthering their success in the underground music scene. The album was certified Gold by the RIAA in 1996. Bands such as Fear Factory, Linkin Park, Slipknot and Nine Inch Nails cite The Land of Rape and Honey as a major influence. Their follow up, The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, took a more hardcore guitar-driven direction and was supported by a tour from 1989-90 which was documented on the album In Case You Didn’t Feel Like Showing Up. The album peaked at #163 in the US and was certified Gold by the RIAA for sales in excess of 500k in 1995. Music critic Tom Moon included the album in his book, 1000 Recordings to Hear Before You Die, saying it “is one of the great works of industrial music” and is an influential album, “way ahead of its time.” Ministry broke into the mainstream in 1991 with the hit “Jesus Built My Hotrod,” which was co-authored by Gibby Haynes of the Butthole Surfers (who also is featured doing guest vocals) and Michael Balch of Front Line Assembly. It was the key track off their fifth studio album released on Sire in 1992, commonly referred to as Psalm 69. The song “N.W.O.” was nominated for the Grammy® Award for Best Metal Performance in 1993, but lost to Nine Inch Nails’ “Wish.” Psalm 69 is ranked #80 on Rolling Stone magazine’s Top 100 Greatest Metal Albums of All Time list. It went platinum and peaked at #27 on the Billboard 200, paving the way for other industrial acts including Marilyn Manson and Orgy into the Billboard charts.

Ministry had gone on to record up until their break up in 2008, although they announced a reunion in 2011 , released two more studio albums and are working on their fourteenth studio album set to release in 2018. They have been nominated for 6 Grammy® Awards.

This is the first time that their Greatest Fits album covering key tracks from the WB/Sire label years is available on vinyl. No other Ministry greatest hits collection exists on vinyl in the market and this one would receive the typical high quality Run Out Groove treatment.
