  • 1979's HEATHEN EARTH is Throbbing Gristle's fourth and final studio album, and may well be the most uncompromising of the lot. Nearly all of the many Throbbing Gristle releases available are live documents, and this was recorded in one take before an invited audience. While THE SECOND ANNUAL REPORT is harsher and less melodic, and D.O.A. and 20 JAZZ FUNK GREATS more conceptually unified, HEATHEN EARTH is the album which best exemplifies the group's slogan "Entertainment Through Pain."
  • Singer/mastermind Genesis P-Orridge's lyrics are among his most deliberately provocative, and the electronic tumult of the group is here translated into a relentless sonic thrash and hum, trumpets and found sounds colliding with the tape loops and synths. Highlights are a drastically reworked version of "Six Six Sixties" which is somehow even more disturbing than the original, followed by a declaimed manifesto by P-Orridge.
