Released in the first quarter of 2103,  I wrote this article while listening to Too Dark park and huffing butane.

Ha!

I'm hoping to have some extra cash to see them in Atlanta next week. Out of all the bands I've seen over the years, they still put on one of the best shows I've ever seen.

Somehow my favorite SP song has vocal samples from a mass murderer.   I guess this makes me edgy?

the United States government has used the band's music as a torture device.

I thought it was Nettwerk?

Um, it's going to be hard to find something that isn't disturbing in nearly any SP song.

I think using (i don't know, off the top of my head) Milli Vanilli over and over and over might be more effective.

There's been a rumor that Jeffrey Dahmer was arrested while listening to Clock DVA's "Buried Dreams."

Charles Manson technically didn't kill anyone.

Makes sense since they use Britney Spears music to drive off Somali pirates.

I've heard the same for Bill Leeb (or is it the other guy from FLA?)

Yeah, it's Bill Leeb.  He was pretty infamous for sampling popular records of the time.  He wasn't even really that original about it.  Gave him a bit of a bad rep, but he did make a fortune from Delerium.

The point that he has no quality filter? No, I'm sure I just pointed out that... point.

Skinny Puppy is awesome, and to me, no-one has ever quite surpassed what they accomplished between Cleanse Fold and Manipulate and The Process in their genre.  I like their new stuff ok, but I miss the old days.  (Things just aren't the same without Dwayne.)

How about the precursor to Milli Vanilli.

You mean Sasha and Digweed.

Karma (w/ Silence) sat on the shelves undiscovered for two years and the Sanctuary mix was released on a Plastic compilation to little to no fanfare until Sasha and Digweed dropped it in their Northern Exposure: Expeditions mix CD in 99. Then everybody decided it was a good tune.

Because a song isn't good unless a popular DJ plays it.

I don't know the tracks popularity at the time but I did have that NE double disc album.  "Silence" wasn't on the US Ultra release.

Did they have an exhibition license for the music? I've read those FBI warnings...copyright violation is NOT a victimless crime!

If you had bothered to go to an actual trance club/rave/festival/party back then, you probably would have heard it five times a night.

I don't think it counts if they don't make any money off playing it.

I'm thinking I'm gonna put you on ignore.  Your sarcasm is getting old.

Anyway, listening to the Skinny Puppy album and it's pretty disappointing.  This sounds unbelievably dated, like Wumpscut.

Cevin, there's a whole new industrial scene out there, listen to some of it and get inspired.

I would say that any type of torture is inherently wrong, but..
Good and evil do not exist.

Ouch.

Really, though, GWOTR was pretty damn good IMO. I hear a lot from around the industrial community about rehashed this or stale that. They biatch about Combichrist's popularity, but have little else different to offer.

The only band I've heard recently that is doing anything remotely interesting or different lately is Die Sektor. Most of it seems to center around the EBM or aggrotech stuff.

I don't understand why you keep picking a fight with me. You know I'm going to push back, so if you don't like it, why start?

The production on that is a little better, but it's kind of "EDM" based and not really my cup of tea when it comes to industrial.

I was thinking more along the lines of stuff like Perc, Sawf, Mick Finesse, Clouds, etc.  That's techno, but it's very heavily influenced by old school industrial and noise.  You can find some pretty interesting records coming from that scene.
