Filth Pig is the sixth studio album by industrial metal band Ministry, released in 1996 on Warner Bros. Records. The title was allegedly derived from a statement made in the British Houses of Parliament, where bandleader Jourgensen was described as a filthy pig by MP Teddy Taylor. Despite being the band's highest-charting album in the US, it sharply divided the band's fanbase and was a commercial failure.
The sound was a huge departure from previous albums, with influences from sludge and doom metal. This would be the last Ministry album to be recorded with Mike Scaccia on guitar until the 2004 release of Houses of the Molé. Scaccia did not tour to support Filth Pig. Read more on Last.fm.
