Inquisition - Skinny Puppy - The Greater Wrong Of The Right (Live) (DVD)

The band avoided external influences when recording the album, instead opting to seek inspiration from their previous work and hone elements that they thought they could expand on. This included using synthesizers that had been employed in the recording of 's Remission[17] some of which were utilized in the song "Past Present".

Commenting on the album's sound, Key said he knew people would be divided on the band's direction. He continued, "I've heard some people complaining, like, 'Ohhh, there's just not enough pure hardcore noise or completely discombobulated beats,' and it's like, well, maybe we'll get there again! We could have made a solid noise album, but that would have been an album that sounded like not so much of a progression to us".

I think the passage of time has painted us into a corner of being something so chaotic and so incredibly dark, but if you go back over our catalog there's a lot of moments where there are softness and a less abrasive and very melodic aspect to what we did. We've always had that within us -- we're not just doing this to be these malevolent, malignant tumoresque musicians who are continually delving into the evil side of life and supporting it to the very end!

Justin Bennett was hired as the band's live drummer. Key's costume made drum kit, dubbed the "drumasaurous", was not utilized as it had been on previous tours. A full schedule also caused the band to declined a spot on the Lollapalooza tour, [21] which was ultimately cancelled due to poor ticket sales. The costume used at the beginning of each show was designed by Ogre and built by a company called Cyberoptics.

Ogre wanted the suit to invoke images of both a canine and a plague doctorbut admitted it resembled "more of a soldier like character". Bush and Dick Cheney performing a mock execution of Ogre, prompted the conservative group Patriot Americans Boycotting Anti-American Hollywood to attempt a boycott of college radio stations that played Skinny Puppy.

But there is still enough edge - musical and political - to fuel this streamlined return". Mark Adair from Exclaim!

It is a more accessible sound than previous efforts, but still a solid entry to the band's discography". Titus described the album as "a riveting set that draws from the act's complex, mechanical palette".

He praised songs such as "Empte" and "Use Less" for their lyrics and "tribal beats", and concluded that "the band's ability to again make music of such demanding complexity suggests that all is not lost". Some critics were less positive, such as Nick Lewis from the Calgary Herald who stated that while the album was "not essential", it "showcases a band that, 22 years later, is still relevant and ahead of its peers".

However, he continued that the album sounded "more inspired" than their previous effort and concluded that with "stunning structure from Key, it beats most of the current industrial music competition". In a negative review for The SpectrumRustin Reber panned the album for its lack of guitar work, calling it "electronic noise". He concluded, "I'm probably prejudice against those who create every part of an entire song with a MIDI controller and recorded samples of music, but I doubt this is anything appealing to the few souls reading this article".
