For a moment we feared Al Jourgensen was serious when he announced the final farewell from Ministry a few years ago. Obviously, his decision was related to the sudden death of his friend and band mate Mike Scaccia. Fortunately, the godfather of industrial metal realized that he and the world have unfinished business to attend to.
Spearheaded by sole remaining founder Al Jourgensen, Ministry have been at the forefront of industrial metal for three and a half decades. In late December 2012, long-time guitarist Mike Scaccia – who was also Al Jourgensen’s best friend - died of a heart attack while performing on stage with his other band Rigor Mortis. Jourgensen decided to break up Ministry following the tour in support of ‘From Beer to Eternity’. The live CD/DVD ‘Last Tangle in Paris’ (2012) was the ultimate tribute to Scaccia.
