After beginning their career with a sound more like synth-pop than the loud industrial metal that they are known for, ministry developed a more and more heavy sound. The band's metal influences culminated with Psalm 69, the ultimate blend of industrial stylings with thrash metal. Psalm 69 contains pounding drum machines, distorted vocals, samples and fairly repetitive song structures with intense thrash metal riffs and the occasional guitar solo. As a result, Psalm 69 makes for a fairly abrasive and always exhilarating listen. To match the pounding music, Al Jourgensen's lyrics generally seem to be an outcry against a society in decay.
The album kicks off with N.W.O, a mid-paced, politically charged track that mocks President George Bush's leadership (he was president at the time of the album's release). It makes use of riot samples and speeches to ram home its point, and numbs the listener with its repetition and heavy power chords. A great start to the album. The listener is then brought into JUst One Fix, a faster song with a brilliant thrashy riff and heavily distorted vocals. The song makes enough changes to not be too repetitive and is perfect headbanging material. The next song, TV 2, is even faster. It cuts between blastbeat drumming with a lightning-fast riff and a capella sections of Jourgensen screaming vocals at the top of his lungs. The lyrics are about Al's experiences with drugs. It is the harshest-sounding track on here. Next up is Hero, one of my favourites. It has another great thrash riff and packs a huge amount of intensity. This time, lyrics are about blind patriotism and has such great lines as "It's not a matter of rights, it's just a matter of war!" There's also great little guitar solo in the middle. Overall, this song is a rush.

This album is a total classic of noise industrial metal standards. This is where Ministry really nailed it, found their right sound, and arguably produced thier best ever album. There are so many great industrial classic tunes on here- N.W.O., Just one fix, Psalm 69, Hero...the whole album, start to finish in just about perfect.
It is total full-on, non stop, insane industrial beats right on top of super fast distorted guitars and bass, with drums pounding away forever. A must have industrial classic. LEGEND album.

Ministry's eighth album, released in 1992, is their best-known (and best) work, an awesomely heavy slab of industrial dance music. Incidentally, Psalm 69 is a title of convenience, like Led Zeppelin 4 - the actual title is something incomprehensible in Greek! Snarling, raging guitars conspire with relentless programmed rhythms to bludgeon the listener into submission. Highlights include opener N.W.O. (New World Order), for which a disturbing video exists, Just One Fix and rock club favourite Jesus Built My Hotrod, an atypical Foetus-sounding piece of revved-up psychobilly. All in all, Psalm 69 is as heavy as a supertanker full of wet cement - this album goes to 11!

Psalm 69 is a truelly devastating album by all acounts, and is unargueably one of the most important and infuential albums in history. This album defined industrial-metal and smashed barriers with its pounding electric beats, crushing metal guitar riffs and well-placed samples. Every track on this album is awesome, ranging from the sonic rape handed out by 'NWO' and 'Just1fix' to the trips inside the warped minds of Al and Paul in 'Scarecrow' or 'Psalm69'. This album is truelly extreme, but in relative industrial terms is easy-listening and is a great album for hazy saturday nights! A must buy for any industrial fan.

One of the better experiences in life is walking into a dark and seedy club and watching a hundred people mosh and thrash about to the sound of Ministry. Sure this album is loud and noisy and perhaps not as well crafted as Industrial purists would have it but if you want to sweat to the sound of music, you can't do much better than this.

My only introduction to Ministry before this album was a single of 'Jesus built my hotrod' which also included 'TV song' and I loved it.
This album is more of the same - much much more! Brilliant.

By Dr. Delvis Memphistopheles TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 12 Jun. 2012
Format: Audio CD
Ministry shifted from Killing Joke riffing into something much metallic, leaving portions of the industrial experimentation aside, but still keeping alive the torch of intelligence often doused when translated into straight HM pastiche.

Attacks on religion abound within this psalm to a middle eastern hoax, ranging from Jesus built my hotrod forever onwards to the final apocalypse. Burning flames of hell are toasted by night demons, high on gibson, to evoke a searing fury of bile, brimming over the lickspittle of orange flames. Black vats of surging guitar and strained pained vocals emit the fury of men being whipped as children by the bible belt, now seeking revenge as tattooed and pierce adults.

An album that demarcates adult adolescence whilst tapping into a manic fury, it still resonates as a template, often copied since this time, but never really surpassed. A fine album that stood on the cusp of something new and gave us black metal to speed metal as Metallica took the ideas and sieved off the politics and the imagination to create something plainer appealing for the need to empower adolescents.

This is more apocalyptic, a call to arms, drawing from TV, Monte Cazazza as well as KJ and Pantera. Brutal majestic and ultimately driving straight into an abyss.
