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.
