Although he now resides in multiple locales, whenever Al Jourgensen brings his Ministry project to Chicago, it will always feel like a homecoming. The band has long outgrown its synth-pop genesis, but even then, its sound hinted at the menacing Metal outfit it would become.

Thursday night’s performance at the Riviera found the band in peak form. Playing behind a wall of chain link fence (Tru-Link?), the symbolism of caged animals could not have been more appropriate. Adding to the all-consuming monolithic vibe of the evening, the band also brought along sludgy, brothers-in-arms in The Melvins and Corrosion Of Conformity to lather up the leather-clad, inked-up disciples in attendance.
