Ministry – The Land of Rape and Honey

22 Oct

Having maintained a strictly vegan diet and thus being unable to enjoy the pleasures of either rape or honey, this compact disc by future teen idol and Lard leader Alain Jourgenson was released in the 80’s to glowing reviews by the industrial metal fraternity.

When staunch Christian Alain Jourgenson released his 1986 disc Twitch, his religion prevented himself from saying that the album sucked in public so he had to say it himself with the following year’s The Land of Rape and Honey, a biblical reference. Through a harsh condemnation of recreational drugs and an alliance with the staunchly conservative Ian MacKaye, the album won nearly universal acclaim when the title track was made into an MTV hit, selling about 1,000,000,000,000 copies (rough estimate).

 

Star rating: 4.5/5 stars
