Skinny Puppy - Remission - 1984

Caberet Voltaire, Throbbing Gristle, Wire, SPK, Chris & Cosey, Severed Heads...  None of these Industrial acts can hold a candle to Skinny Puppy, in my honest opinion.  Yes, I may be biased, as my first exposure to Industrial music was through Skinny Puppy.  But if you look back in time at their progress and impact on the music industry, there was definite power and influence in the work they did.  Nivek Ogre's stage performances always pleased, as well as shocked and stunned.  Their style of music impacted directly the Alternative Industrial scene in the United States all  through the nineties.

I didn't do anything special with this album.  The cover is a barebones direct translation, nothing interesting other than a change of color.  The tracks are the same 11 tracks as the original CD issue, which is different than the vinyl release, but who cares.

The album is strong.  Smothered Hope, Ice Breaker and Sleeping Beast stand out and grab you.  And when it's all done, you'll be able to feel your soul pull the covers tighter, and roll over to sleep...
