The Land of Rape and Honey album cover
The Land of Rape and Honey



Al Jourgensen was already sounding far different from his With Sympathy-era self by the time of Twitch but with 1988’s The Land of Rape and Honey he had completely transmogrified, his voice an often processed snarl and howl, layers of electronics and samples complemented or crushed by equally heavily treated riffs. With Paul Barker and Bill Rieflin as a killer rhythm section, the result almost singlehandedly codified industrial rock if not industrial metal thanks to songs like the opening kick-in-the-head “Stigmata,” “Deity” and “You Know What You Are?”
