Nine Inch Nails and Ministry usually get all the credit for introducing industrial music to the masses during the early '90s. But another group that had been championing the style for just as long – actually, longer – was Skinny Puppy. While the two aforementioned bands had obvious hard rock leanings, Skinny Puppy always aligned themselves more with electro-dance, and they continue to do so on their 13th release overall, 2007's Mythmaker.

Skinny Puppy was indeed one of the most collectable industrial bands, issuing many singles that contained surprisingly strong tracks. In 1999, Nettwerk compiled some of the best for the companion to The Singles Collect. These tracks aren't the rarest in the Skinny Puppy catalog, considering most are B-sides from later singles like "Testure," "Worlock," "Censor," "Tormentor," and "Spasmolytic."

Raw, uncompromising, and visceral, Skinny Puppy live cannot be called simply a concert. It is an experience. Bootlegged, Broke And In Solvent Seas proves this to be true. Recorded in Warsaw, Bratislava, Hildesheim, and Budapest, this is a documentation of Skinny Puppy in top form.

It's not a compilation of across-the-board greatest songs, but the Skinny Puppy singles collection does the old 12" Anthology one better by including tracks from the group's three Nettwerk albums of the 1990s (Rabies, Too Dark Park, and Last Rights). For fans, it's long been a dream to have the full fruits of the industrial kingpins' long career all on one disc – "Dig It," one of Skinny Puppy's first and best singles, appears right beside "Worlock," from 1989's Rabies.

Skinny Puppy reunited for a one-off reunion concert in 2000, five years after the release of The Process, the death of keyboardist Dwayne Goettel, and the breakup of the band. The question of whether founding members Ogre and Cevin Key could pull off the Skinny Puppy live experience without Goettel is answered on Doomsday, a record of their concert at the Doomsday Festival in Dresden, Germany.

One of the more elaborate entries in the sporadic Back and Forth archival series, Brap is a double-disc effort covering the beginning and end of Skinny Puppy's functional career as such. It's very obviously for the hardcore fan but the quality of much of the album is such that it's worth hearing as an example of the band's undoubted influence on electronic music.

Last Rights, Skinny Puppy's final album before a five-year hiatus, and their second to last overall, is a hailstorm of electro-distortion ten years ahead of its time. Even while industrial pop stars like Nine Inch Nails and Ministry were strutting their way across the charts and media outlets trumpeting the industrial revolution, Dave Ogilvie and cEvin Key's ambitious production talents reached what is easily a technical peak (and, arguably, an artistic peak). "Inquisition" is the pinnacle, a heart-stopping single whose production contributed just as much to the air of menace as Ogre's vocals.

Too Dark Park is probably my favorite SP album, if I had to choose one. I've had this Spasmolytic/Shore Lined Poison CD Single since it was first released probably 20 years ago. Haven't listened to this disc for awhile but I decided to dust it off and give it a listen.
