Pound of Flesh is an Electronic Hard Rock band based in Chicago featuring, former member of Ministry, Darrell James.
In 2000, Pound of Flesh debuted with Red & Black. It received critical acclaim and support from 250+ radio stations across the US and charted within the top five of several of those stations.
While touring regionally in support of Red & Black, Darrell had the great fortune to be introduced to the legendary Al
Jourgensen of Ministry fame. Jourgensen asked if he would be interested in playing keyboards during Ministry’s 2003 “Fornicatour.” Darrell agreed,
and Jourgensen loved his creative contribution so much he asked him to stay on for Ministry’s 2004 “Evil Doer” tour. Additionally,
Darrell’s keyboard and drum programming work can be heard on Ministry’s Rantology and Rio Grande Blood as well
as the Revolting Cocks Cocked and Loaded.
