Ministry - Psalm 69

When it comes to quintessential industrial albums, Psalm 69 ranks right up there with NIN's The Downward Spiral. The industrial metal that has made Ministry famous is most prevalent in this disc, from the singles 'NWO' and 'Jesus Built My Hotrod' to the hidden gems of 'Corrosion' and 'Grace'. The speed and brutality here is so amazing that Ministry has been having a hard time making an album that can reach the high position that this one has in the eyes of the industrial world. If you are a fan of either industrial or metal, this album is a must. It was a milestone of both when it was released, and has remained one of the dominating forces those genres. A must have.
