Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Corrosivly acidic and all the better for it March 15 2004
Format:Audio CD
This album just spews venom and is possibly the most corrosive industrial album that could easily stand up with the industrial pioneers such as Cabaret Voltaire and Throbbing Gristle. Anybody who loves industrial music would be a fool not to get this album - it might take a while to get into but it's a certainly stood the test of time better than some records

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not what I'd listen to... Jan. 16 2004
By Elliott
Format:Audio CD
Of all the Skinny Puppy albums I've listened to, I'd have to say VIVIsectVI is probably my least favorite. It lacks any kind of rhythm in the songs, and it's hard to even tap your foot to the tracks. If you're the type of person who likes bands like Wumpscut and Leaether Strip (EBM), you'll probably be dissapointed with this.

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 66sect6, save the animals Oct. 23 2003
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
ok, this was my first skinny puppy album, and i listened to it for like 6 months straight. it is perfect. chaotic, melodic, and beat-filled. all pups albums offer something different. this is one of the classic albums that will remain a gem among my collection, and is still a favorite to listen to. this was exactly in the middle of their carreer too. this album contains many effects used in the audio-sculpting, and is very chaotic. pick this album up if you wish to open your mind to the organized chaos of skinny puppy. every song on this album creates the perfect mood for the complete "vivisect vi" experience. ALL puppy albums are good in their own right, and are all different. enjoy...

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Industrial Music! Jan. 22 2003
By Sean
Format:Audio CD
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. This is not your whiny nobody-love-me Goth music, but it actually touches upon dark, but very social/political topics such as War, Disease, Drugs etc. An Industrial group with a vision! ...
