Ministry: Filth Pig

Edward Helmore, MOJO, 1995

FROM AN ABANDONED whorehouse 50 miles outside of Austin, Texas, comes Filth Pig, the latest sonic roadkill of heavy-riffing industrial grooves and big beats from Ministry. Following Psalm 69 and an interlude in which frontman Al Jourgensen and bassist Paul Barker collaborated with the great Revolting Cocks, Ministry's Filth Pig is fat and ugly.
