Despite the critical ravagings this fine album has recieved, I am yet to find an album (short of the Swans - a good comparison point) so utterly drenched in fear,hate and loathing. This is the quintessential "bad day at work" album, and if this is what Ministry do best, then they have succeeded admirably here. I really love the more organic sound (Rey Washam's spacy drumming is a main contribution) and the minimalist non-too-techno approach. If there are songs that can whip you up into an anti-social fervour quicker than "Reload", "Filth Pig" and the awesome "Dead Guy", then I want to know where they are! Tremendous therapy all round, and "Lava" is pure funk! My favourite Ministry album by a country mile, if you find it boring, then i can understand, but you simply don't appreciate raw, downtuned rage . I will defend it until i am too, a Dead guy.

Music critics suck. Especially in the case of Ministry. If you listened to the popular press, Ministry apparently only made two records worth listening to, Psalm 69 and Houses of the Mole. They even drop into the depths of total fallacy claiming aforementioned Houses of the Mole was a 'final comeback'. Rubbish. Lies and trickery, I tells thee! Filth Pig is globally reviled by casual onlookers, but as this section of reviews shows, most of us Ministry hardcore love it. It isn't as fast or heavy as Psalm 69 (and heaven forbid, may not be accessible to Limp Bizkit fans, god save us all...) but it's consistently more interesting, less incoherent and if truth be told, a lot more musical than previous efforts. It isn't my fave Ministry CD, but then neithers Psalm 69, my fave's probably Animositisomina or The Mind is a Terrible Thing to Taste, both of which I recommend over this or Psalm 69. I tend to view this as on a par with Psalm 69, and if you actually got into that CD as opposed to 'heard a bit, I'm told it's their best' then you'll probably like this as it makes a great partner to the manic Psalm. So, buy this, and tell Kerrang! where to stick it. As if you haven't already. If you don't have Psalm 69 get that as well. Another case of ludicrous expectancy of another slab of the same music resulting in a fine record being overlooked.

And so it came to pass.......Ministry did produce their definitive album. Seething, more often than not spitting blood, the band have shown in sound what it's like to be the worm in the tequila! What will immediately hit you is the stripped down, almost 'live' feel of the album. Filth Pig is also a very diverse album, heavy as hell throughout, but diverse. Opening at point blank range with the stop-start ferocity of "Reload" through the cathedral-like title track down to the closer, the strange "Brick windows", it's an impressively hateful ride. After a particular hard day at your plastic job, it sure beats a manicure and a chat! Well in my opinion anyway. The drumming is superb throughout, especially on my personal favourite "Dead guy" and the psychedelic maelstrom of "Gameshow". As usual the production is second to none with less sampling than on previous outings and overall a more organic sound ensues. Their best yet. Forget the tequila and wallow in the filth instead!

With Ministry having slated a new release for next year after their reformation and with myself having listened to THIS record very regularly for the last year, I thought it would be fitting to review it.

First of all, before ever listening Filth Pig, I wasn't the biggest Ministry Fan. I had heard the odd track here and there and had listened to Psalm 69, (mainly for Jesus Built My Hotrod) sources told me it was their best album... After listening to Psalm enough, I wanted to delve further into the Ministry catalogue in search of more 999 mph riffs, wacky sampling and basically everything else that caught my ear in Psalm 69. Where best to look? The next album of course...

In my case this proved to be a dead end in searching for what I thought would be Psalm 70. I gave Filth Pig one listen and was flabbergasted. It just didn't seem right to me, it all seemed merged into one. `Reload' started the album off on the right foot driven by its thick, face-melting bass-line but that was over in two and a half minutes. The only track which sort of got my attention was `Crumbs' and still, I wasn't so interested in Filth Pig anymore. I was pretty disappointed. That was September 2010. Move on to early January 2011 and I gave Filth Pig another shot.

I'm not sure why, but I remember playing a few tracks from Filth Pig at random during a journey, the first time I had listened to it in months. Suddenly, a different approach to heavy music had stood out to me unlike before. I started giving the album more attention over the subsequent weeks and before I knew it I was listening to it constantly. A masterpiece of an album had emerged.

`Reload', the first track as I before mentioned, is almost like a false start.

When this album arrived in '96, it was pretty much mauled by Kerrang and the likes for being, well, un-Ministry-like, after all, they delivered classics in '88 with The Land of Rape and Honey, and in '92 with Psalm 69. So what went wrong?
Well, if it hadn't dawned on anyone, Mssrs. Jorgensen and barker are hardly the types to rest on their laurels and churn out the same old, same old time and again until everyone gets bored of them churning out the same old, same old time and again. Yes, we made two absolute classics, let's move on, in other words.
So it doesn't have another Stigmata, Jesus Built My Hotrod, Burning Inside, Just One Fix et al, what it does have is a shovelful of dark, seething hate that erupts through your speakers. Reload starts things off and literally pins you down with its aural assault and mind liquifying bassline. In other words, buckle up, you're in for a ride.
The title track is a piece of dark menace, underpinned by Barker's ominous bassline, but the best track has to be Lava, which is pure chaos distilled into a wall of sound that rattles ribcages and locks you in for your full attention. Other tracks show just how well the genius/insanity line has been walked, such as Useless with it's constant mood swings and Jorgensen sounding like a demented prophet, The Fall, which should be on every Dario Argento soundtrack from here on, as well as the twisted, yet strangely moving, cover of Lay Lady Lay.
Rape and Honey was essential for its dark electronica, Psalm 69 for it's halucigen-influenced, psychadelic ride, and Filth Pig is essential for it's dark, down and dirty approach. Frequently intriguing, sometimes worrying, and, barring Dark Side of the Spoon and their early Pet Shop Boysesque material, always essential. Tune in to the dark side, embrace it, and never again think that drugs are necessarily a bad thing.
