Cyberaktif was a one-off collaboration between Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly, and cEvin Key and Dwayne R. Goettel of Skinny Puppy. Blixa Bargeld from Einstürzende Neubauten guested on the tracks “Paradiessiets” and “Meltdown”.

During the heyday of Wax Trax! Records during the early 90’s many fans wrote in saying how good it would be to see what would have happened to Skinny Puppy if Bill had stayed in the band. Wax Trax paid for the whole project; they paid Leeb, Goettel and Key and gave them use of their studios to produce the album “Tenebrae Vision” and its two singles “Nothing Stays” and “Temper” (all 1990). Bill went under his Skinny Puppy pseudonym Wilhelm Schroeder. There were no plans for any more albums, and this became even less likely after the death of Dwayne Goettel in 1995.

The first time that I listened Cyberaktif was with the insane single Temper. From Vancouver, Canada arrives this project integrated by the genius Bill Leeb of Front Line Assembly and for the masters Cevin Key, Rudolph Goettel and Wilhelm Schroeder of Skinny Puppy; it's also important to mention the participation of Blixa Bargeld of the German group Einstürzende Neubauten in some of the tracks.

Temper is extracted from the LP Tenebrae Vision 1990, the company Wax Trax! Records of Chicago is the responsible for this authentic work of Cyberpunk.
