  • This is Ministry’s fastest and heaviest album ever. You could go as far as to call it Thrash. Riffs! Riffs! Riffs! Like House Of The Mole’ before it, Rio Grande Blood is filled to the brim with political attacks on Bush. This is good and bad. Mostly bad. For one, this record(and Houses Of The Mole) is going to be EXTREMELY dated years from now, given that all the political rants are current issues. Plus, I don’t know about you, but I love my Ministry Bush-free. Hearing Bush’s voice is sometimes annoying to have to listen to after a while. There are a lot of other samples throughout that are less annoying though. This is not to say that the political attacks are not relevant cause they are. Jourgensen is only stating the obvious truth. This is a small complaint though. Any Ministry fan should pick this up because it is an amazing record. Fast as hell buzz-saw riffs, distorted bass, ominous synths, pummeling drums, and harsher-than-normal Jourgensen screams! Everything you know and love is here. Industrial Metal in your face! Plus with contributions from the likes of Tommy Victor(Prong) and Paul Raven(Legendary Killing Joke), this record stands all on its own. Stand out tracks include Rio Grande Blood, Yellow Cake, Gang Green, and prolly the best song on here, Lies Lies Lies. Every song is a winner though. Jourgensen proves once more that Ministry doesnt mess around and is truly a force to be reckoned with. I hope there is more to come in the future, but hopefully not so political. A must own album

    Rock On.
