Product Description

Product Description


Skinny Puppy architects Cevin Key and Dwayne Goettel forge here a disturbing and surreal montage of mutilated sound and fractured noise: a suitable backdrop for vocalist Nivek Ogre's angry and despairing reflections on war, disease, and insanity. "Human Disease" and "Hospital Waste" launch a heated attack on the senses, while "Harsh Stone White" is slow-paced brutal surrealism. "VX Gas Attack" and "Testure" are considerably more direct, with their horrified reactions to chemical warfare and animal vivisection. Through this exquisite clamor an occasional riff or melody emerges, such as in "Testure" and "Who's Laughing Now?," rounding out the overall sound. The latter third of the album is predominantly instrumental noise-sculpture, Key and Goettel exhibiting their lurid arsenal of sounds and programming technique. --Mark McCleery --This text refers to an alternate Audio CD edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars An Industrial Masterpiece April 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
This wasn't the first Skinny Puppy CD I bought. I purchased "Rabies" after I found out that Al Jourgenson of Ministry helped produce it. I had heard great things about Vivisect VI, and I liked Rabies, so I figured that I buy this one and try it out.
Boy was I glad I did. This is an awesome CD. It starts off heavy and never lets up. Skinny Puppy pounds you into submission as they take on various socio-political themes. VX Gas Attack was an outcry against Iraq's use of chemical weapons against Iran and the Kurds. Testure describes someone witnessing a vivisection and other animal testing techniques. Much of the music is harrowing and can be difficult to listen to at times.
Along with Ministry's "Land of Rape and Honey," Vivisect VI is considered by many to be one of the greastest industrial CD's ever. If you listen to industrial music and haven't heard this, you need to rectify that right now and buy this. If you like the current industial acts (Funker Voigt, VNV Nation, etc.) you'll definately like this. And pick up "Rabies" while you're at it.

4.0 out of 5 stars An industrial classic Jan. 16 2004
Format:Audio CD
For some strange reason, my original review for "Vivisect Vi" never got posted two weeks ago. So here is another attempt of writing a review of the album.
I must confess that "Vivisect Vi" is the only album I own by industrial legends Skinny Puppy. I bought it a couple of years ago (used of course) when I was just getting into industrial music. Never have I heard anything as corrosive and nihilistic in my entire life as "Vivisect Vi". It was not the easiest album for me to listen to. The music is just as brutual as the lyrics are but I mean that as a complement. Not all music should be all accessible and digestible for the ears. "Vivisect Vi" gave me a real earful to the extreme sounds of industrial music. If anything, "Vivisect Vi" should be the blueprint to how heavy and brutal music should be. Forget your Limp Bizkits and Korns of the world. Compared to Skinny Puppy, Limp Bizkit and Korn are the Backstreet Boys and NSYNC trying to go hardcore. My personal favorite songs are the more serious songs such as "VX Gas Attack", "Testure" and "Who's Laughing Now". The intensity in the lyrics matches well with the brutual synthesizers and drum machines pounding relentlessly. Not all the songs on the album delves into political or personal causes like "VX Gas Attack" and "Testure". There are the more surreal, abstract songs such as "Punk in Park Zoo's" and "Funguss" which goes to show you that the band does have a twisted sense of humor. Although "Vivsect Vi" isn't the easiest album to listen to, it sure is a beautifully chaotic album. Noise hasn't sounded this good in years.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Traumatic Assault of Industrial Harmony July 22 2002
Format:Audio CD
For those who love industrial music, especially the latest generation of bands such as VNV Nation and Wumpscut, this offering from Skinny Puppy will put you in motion. Vivisect VI is the epitome of industrial music, containing ominous and pounding beats, haunting vocals and brilliant socially, environmentally conscious lyrics. With tracks such as Harsh Stone White, Who's Laughing Now, VX Gas Attack (a song that condemned Hussein for his use of chemical weapons against Iran and his own Kurdish subjects, when the rest of the Western world was silent as he was still considered an important ally to the US) and the unforgettably eerie Fritter (Stellla's Home), Vivisect VI remains on of the essential Industrial albums produced. Also included on the album is, of course, the track, Testure--a song that points out the essential cruelty and pointlessness of animal testing and vivsection, and has been a club stand by since it was released.
The uncanny power of Skinny Puppy and this particular album is that they never seem to sound dated or a relic of the past like so much other music. This is due to their revolutionary innovation of sound, noise and sampling and amalgamation of punk/electronic/gothic aesthetics, which turned into the most prominent bands of the last 20 years. Their influence has been repeatedly acknowledged and manifested in bands as diverse as Ministry, Pigface and Nine Inch Nails to Marilyn Manson, Leather Strip and VNV Nation. Listening to these songs, will make you want to get up and dance, even stomp and pound...it will rouse even the gothiest goth and the punkest punk to meet in unison on the dance floor-an increasingly rare occurrence these days. And it is precisely as a result of Skinny Puppy's ability reunite these once so closely integrated groups, which is where their ultimate attraction and musical power lies.
Brap On!

5.0 out of 5 stars One of Skinny Puppy's Best Feb. 7 2002
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to pinpoint a definitive Skinny Puppy record, but Vivisect VI is pretty awesome. This is Skinny Puppy in their most intense, noisy, nightmarish form. The recording itself is really complex, distorted, and it may be their most inaccessible. This album could take many listens for the average listener to warm up to, but underneath it all, it's loaded with ideas and is pretty much a brilliant record. All the songs stand on their own, yet seem to be part of the greater sum that is Vivisect VI. The socio/politial lyrics, though pretty grueling, abstract and angry, are some of the most intelligent I could name by a contemporary group, and hit on the typical SP issues (environmental degradation, animal rights, AIDS epidemic, chemical warfare). The bonus tracks (10-13) are experimental and actually add quite a bit to the album. Forget Rabies, this album is the essential body of the Skinny Puppy catalog...actually it's probably among the best industrial albums ever put out.

1.0 out of 5 stars Could this be the worst album I ever bought?
Let me illustrate how bad this album is. In 1991 after being in the Gulf War I was sent to Northern Iraq through Turkey to take part in Kurdish Relief. Read more

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Industrial Music!
To simply put it, "ViVisection Vi" is one of the more darker Industrial albums I own next to the cold monolith of "Streetcleaner" by Godflesh. Read more

4.0 out of 5 stars Not one of their best but good
This is true industrial. This is a typical Skinny Puppy CD, and as such you must listen to it twice at least before judging whether you like it or not. Perhaps even more.
