An excellent industrial metal album that creates an impressive atmosphere. The influence of this album as being one of the first of the genre can definitely be seen in virtually everything, but I especially loved the sludgy guitar riffs.
The only problem I have this album is that is creates such powerful atmosphere that you get lost in it to the point where it becomes just background noise and loses some of my attention, but I get drawn back in when another heavy riff kicks in.
It's unpleasant. It's raw. It's exhausting. But that is what makes it so goddamn perfect. Hugely influential on a number of genres - industrial metal, sludge metal, post-metal - and one of the finest releases form 1989. A timeless classic.
