Skinny Puppy - VIVIsectVI

   (0 reviews)

VIVIsectVI is the fourth studio album by Canadian industrial music group Skinny Puppy. The title of the album is a pun associating vivisection with Satanism. The album was released in September 1988 by Nettwerk Records and was supported by the VIVIsectVI tour as well as two singles, "Censor" and "Testure". "Testure" maintained a steady position on Billboard's Hot Dance Music chart and would go on to be one of the groups most influential and successful singles. VIVIsectVI was named as one of the best albums of 1988 by Melody Maker, being placed 13th on their End of Year Critics list

This is the only Skinny Puppy album on which Dave Ogilvie is given songwriting credit and listed as an official member of the band. This was also the only album until 2004's The Greater Wrong of the Right to feature a photo of the band. Dave Ogilvie is not included in the photo. The cover artwork was done by Steven R. Gilmore, a longtime collaborator with the band; the photo was taken by Kevin Westenberg.
