Ministry are a band from Chicago, Illinois that are very well known with the musical style on this recording being industrial metal and this a review of their 1989 album "The Mind Is A Terrible Thing To Taste" which was released by Sire Records.
Drum programming ranges from slow, mid paced to fast programmed beats, while the samples bring an industrial sound to the music, as for the bass playing it has a very dark tone with riffs that follow the riffing that are coming out of the guitars.
Rhythm guitars range from slow, mid paced to fast industrial metal riffs that where very heavy for time with some thrash metal influences being thrown into the riffing and there are no guitar solos or leads present on this recording.
Vocals are mostly harsh sounding industrial style vocals along with a good amount of spoken word samples as well as a brief use of clean singing, while the lyrics cover dark and political themes, as for the production it has a very strong, powerful, heavy and professional sound for the time it was released.
In my opinion t his was a very great sounding recording from Ministry and if you are a fan of this band, you probably already own this album. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "Thieves" "Burning Inside" "Breathe" and "So What". RECOMMENDED BUY.
