Bill Rieflin

Seattle-born William Rieflin (b. September 30, 1960) is one of the most respected metal/industrial drummers of the last decade. Through his work with Ministry and that band's countless side projects, Rieflin has become known as a powerful and original force within the alternative scene. During the early '80s, Rieflin was a member of the Blackouts, a Seattle-based hard rock band. The lineup also included Paul Barker and Mike Scaccia, both future members of Ministry, as well as Rieflin's brother Raymond. The Blackouts folded in 1987, and Barker convinced Rieflin to join him and Al Jourgensen in the newly reinvented Ministry. Together they produced one of the seminal industrial albums, Land of Rape and Honey.
