Circuit Surgeon

Circuit Surgeon = Skinny Puppy + Noise Unit + Twilight Transmissions + Download

Ever wondered what happened to Skinny Puppy? They broke up and reformed as Circuit Surgeon! OK, not really, but this disc sounds like it! This two-man industrial brain surgeon has so much going on in each song that there is something new every listen. Overall there is a very fluid motion to the whole disc—some of it is trance-style ambient with beats while other tracks are pure ambience. Very much combining Too Dark Park/Last Rights-era Skinny Puppy with the ambience of Download, this disc is a worthy addition to any industrial fan’s collection, whether you’re a “Puppy Person” or not.
