Al Jourgensen, the industrial godfather and founder of noise provocateurs Ministry turns 60 years old on October 9th. The landmark birthday comes just two days before another Ministry milestone-the 30th anniversary of the band’s pioneering album, The Land Of Rape And Honey, which was released on October 11, 1988. The album produced the hit single “Stigmata” and went on to be certified Gold by the Recording Industry Association of America in 1996 and remains one of the band’s best-selling albums.

A stylistic breakthrough for Ministry, Land Of Rape And Honey took a steep departure from the synthpop elements of the band’s previous albums. The album is considered as setting the precedent of the industrial music genre and influenced a number of bands that would come out of the scene thereafter.

You can hear Al Jourgensen talk more about the album anniversary on Dave Navarro’s Dark Matter Radio on October 17 from 9-11 pm PST live on DashRadio.Com ALT-X station.

Ministry continues to remain active in 2018, with the release of its latest album AmeriKKKant in March. Ministry will embark on the second leg of its North American tour beginning November 21 through December 21 with support from Carpenter Brut.
