    The Weapon is the welcome resurrection of that classic Skinny Puppy album, coming just as the band enters its 30th year of existence.

    As ever, frontman niVek ohGr manages to make his vocals just as laceratingly intense as the saturated distortion of the electronics, while the lyrics are as angry as they are eloquent.

    Weapon is the sound of a band that still has something to say, but delivered with a comfort level commensurate with their thirty years of existence.

    Weapon stands as Skinny Puppy's strongest work since 1992's Last Rights; it's a testament to one of the few reformed bands still striving to push, not just themselves, but an entire bygone genre forward.

    Weapon does what it does so satisfyingly well, that it makes you rethink the concept of industrial music.

    The abrasive noise gradually builds, the rhythms intensify, only to smoothly slip apart at the end, leaving us with an open ending that is delightful and disturbing all at once.
