LABEL...... Combustible Designs

In 1983, Alain Jourgensen released the full-length debut of his project Ministry, a band which would expand and grow into one of the great innovators of industrial music, and an acclaimed and celebrated metal act in it's own rite. The debut album however, titled "With Sympathy" was markedly different from the fuzzy, distorted industrial music Ministry would become known for, instead possessing a pristine, synth-pop sound.
As late as 2016, Jourgensen has disavowed the album, stating: "I had nothing to do with that record except my face is on it and my voice is on it. They wrote the lyrics, made me cut my fucking hair, bought me a wardrobe, assigned me management. I was literally a product of the old-school star-making machine. It was revolting, disgusting and it traumatized me for years."
Which is a shame, because we actually like it quite a bit.
"Effigies" is an underground tribute to "With Sympathy", and the first ever compilation distributed by graphic design imprint Combustible Designs, featuring the entire album covered in its entirety in various styles ranging from classic EBM, noise-punk, industrial metal, glammy dance rock, and even Steely Dan-style jazz rock.
