While grunge and hip-hop were hitting their stride in the early 90s, industrial music was also sinking its teeth into mainstream audience by wave of acts like Nine Inch Nails. Sub Pop got in on the fun (can you call industrial music “fun” though?) too with this single from Pigface. The project of Public Image Ltd drummer Martin Atkins, he has been the project’s sole consistent member since the beginning. However, he’s had everyone from Trent Reznor to Flea perform with the group. On “Empathy / Steamroller,” he brings in Swans’ Michael Gira to provide a devlish croon to the a-side.
