The Land of Rape and Honey is the third studio album by Ministry, released in 1988.

The album title comes from the slogan of  Tisdale, Saskatchewan, Canada, whose motto is “The Land of Rape and Honey”, the local economy being based on the agricultural products rapeseed and honey. The band chose the name after seeing the slogan on a souvenir mug.


Al Jourgensen, the frontman of the band Ministry, was born in Havana to a Cuban mother and father in 1958. Soon after, he relocated to the United States (U.S.) to live with his mother and his Danish stepfather, who changed the family’s name to “Jourgensen”. He is sometimes credited as Alain Jourgensen, Alien Jourgensen, Hypo Luxa, Dog,  Alien Dog Star and Buck Satan.


The image on the cover of “Rape and Honey” appears to be an electronically processed version of a photo of a burned corpse in the Leipzig-Thekla sub-camp of  Buchenwald.
