On Wednesday, Nov. 20, 2019, the mind-boggling became real: Slayer headlined the Broadmoor World Arena. With opening support from fellow '80s and '90s heavyweights, the quartet brought the final leg of their farewell tour, dubbed “The Final Campaign,” to town, fully intending to reign in blood and show no mercy.

"Uncle Al" Jourgensen of Ministry is originally from Havana, Cuba, though he grew up in Chicago, Illinois and Breckenridge, Colorado.

Ministry bassist Paul D'Amour joined in 2019, though metal fans likely know him from his performance on Tool's debut album, Undertow.

On Keyboards and sampling, John Bechdel locked down the electronic side of Ministry's sound. Fun fact: he's the brother of author/cartoonist Alison Bechdel.

Les Claypool of Primus has completed his transformation from "trailer park Christian Bale" into "that weird uncle who is probably a gnome and brings his nieces and nephews inexplicable birthday presents."

Les Claypool's strange, oft-funky, always-complex bass work defines Primus' sound as much as his strange, endearing stage persona.
Griffin Swartzell
Guitarist Larry Lalonde, Primus' co-founder along with Claypool, has always risen to the strange challenge of playing alongside Claypool's like-no-other bass parts.
Griffin Swartzell
Original Primus drummer Tim Alexander has been in and out of the band over the years, but he's never slacked on his precise, proggy drum fills.

Primus have always been standard-bearers of the pop culture weirdness that blossomed in the '90s. Here, they perform "Those Damned Blue Collar Tweakers" in front of a collage of unsettling images from David Firth's eerie "Salad Fingers" cartoons.

Slayer vocalist/bassist Tom Araya may be ready to get off the road, but that doesn't mean he's compromised his performances.
