Classically Martin: Ministry - Stigmata

Blogger ate my post from a few days ago. Don't have much time to retype it, so I have decided to put another favorite video up. It's not for the weak of heart. I remember seeing "Stigmata" on MTV's 120 Minutes and my stepfather walked in the room. Even though he liked heavy metal, the song was a big too much for him. I believe this song started my interest in Industrial music. Something about the groove and post-apocalyptic visuals. May grate on the nerves of soft rock fans.

I saw the movie "Stigmata." Woo, Gabriel Byrne. No one as sexy as he is should be allowed to enter the priesthood.

I'm one of those who just don't get industrial metal. I do like the hard rock and metal of the 70s & 80s. My brother once referred to me as a closet head-banger, but the more recent hybrids and sub-genres I'm not a fan of.

LOL Beckeye - he really was too hot to be a priest, it just wasn't right!

When Ministry went hardcore I lost interest in them. I can't wrap my head around the industrial metal either.

I sought this out on iTunes to ensure I could hear it while running. It's really good to work out to.

I've decided that I probably won't use this new video player format as often. Not big on the idea that it plays automatically and heck... what would happen if I had several on the same page.

I agree with you about it being a good running song, David. Actually, I find myself tapping the drums out on tables when no one is around and I'm bored. There is a part in the video that looks like Britney Spears getting her head shaved.

I can also empathize with Lora and Molie. I consider songs like this: difficult listening. You might find Korn, Limp Bizkit and a other bands pretty tame after this.

Actually, the song is currently wearing on me hearing it every time I come back to pose or read comments. Might take some time for it to become pleasurable again.
