SKINNY PUPPY The Greater Wrong Of The Right Live
SPV (2006)
Hitting the right buttons with all the right noises...

This DVD sat staring at me for many weeks, begging to be reviewed, yet somehow I had a subconiscous thoughts about this band. I'd seen pictures of their live show, read reviews. yet not heard a note of music. Its as though I was almost intimidated by these preconceived ideas!

So with much sceptism I hit play and voila!

Skinny Puppy are quite bloody good at what they do. Their singer looks like something out of Star Trek Deep Space 9, the rest of the band, as you'd expect a modern industrial metal band to sound.

The band's live show is very visual, from the animated motions of the band, to the large projection screen, the sometime shows images that are quite disturbing. Disturbing is one word to describe vocalist, Orge too!

There's lots of energy coming from the stage, if your in the front row, your not going to go home dry or clean.

The music, while I am no expert in the genre of industrial music, Skinny Puppy, do appear to know how to press the right buttons, make the right noises and mix up some pretty good melodies to boot.

The lyrical content seems to be at times, highly political and borderline dangerous.

Filmed in front of their native Canadian fans, the live set is 110 minutes of great entertainment.

The 5.1 sound mix is superb, capturing Skinny Puppy in their aural glory.

Though the band perform on quite a small stage, the camera work is superb throughout.

With a bonus disc or mainly archival material, this is a great all-round package, a must for SP fans and maybe something to tempt the non fans with.
