SKINNY PUPPY'S WEAPON RELEASED TODAY

Update :: Corey
Skinny Puppy - Weapon


Today is the official release day of Skinny Puppy's brand new album, Weapon, in this particular fan's opinion their best work since the Process. Weapon makes it clear that alchemy of Remission and Bites still thrives in this band. Get it, play it, and head on over to our forum where the discussion of the record is already underway.

And how about that new look for Litany? We've been weaponized. Thanks go to Simon Paul and Brydon "Mish" Cheyney for making it happen, and to Steven Gilmore for getting us the artwork.

OGRE INTERVIEWED BY CHAOS CONTROL

Update :: Corey
Chaos Control features another interview with Ogre.

Here's a clip where he reflects upon Smothered Hope:::


...because I can still go back to Smothered Hope, when I was young, I sang "Withered rope you hang what's empty can't remain to put it simply in time cry the hollow words to sing with false disguise" and I would always think to myself "Am I too young to sing this? Is this a song I'd be singing when I'm older?" And now when I sing this song, it still resonates with me in the same way as when I was young and I thought I was writing a song that was too old for me at that time.

OGRE INTERVIEWED IN REGEN

Update :: Corey
Regen Magazine has posted a brand new, in-depth interview with Ogre covering everything from the social issues surrounding Weapon to record label woes.

Here's a clip about the revamped Solvent:::


We had the idea of going back and rerecording all of Remission. We may totally look at something like that in the future, but we thought that it might be a little cheesy, so we thought we'd experiment with one of the songs. Solvent was the choice just because it was never fully realized when we did it back in 1983. I can't speak for cEvin, and musically, it's pretty good actually. From my perspective and thinking about my earlier singing, because I wasn't a great singer back then, I didn't have the range I do now, I didn't think I did the song justice. I'm sure the vulnerability and the fragility in the voice is what gives it its magic too. We were experimenting with the idea of redoing songs, and whatever the feedback from how people feel about that will determine how to move forward with that.

OGRE INTERVIEWED BY VICE

Update :: Corey
Vice Magazine features a brand new interview with Ogre about Weapon. Here's a clip:::


I recently came to this weird gestalt in my mind that everything we do has the potential to either harm or cause good. This is a choice we all make with every action. But I view the human being primarily as a weapon, and a lot of the things that we've created have had disastrous effects on us as a species. Guns are a tiny element of a much larger iceberg that's latticed throughout history.
