Doomsday: Back and Forth, Vol. 5: Live in Dresden is a live CD from the band, Skinny Puppy. The album was recorded at an August 20, 2000 performance at the Doomsday Festival in Dresden, Germany. This performance marked the reunion of former bandmates, cEvin Key and Nivek Ogre. It was the first Skinny Puppy concert since 1992, first in Europe since 1988, and first ever in the former East Germany. Skinny Puppy resumed touring in 2004 with The Greater Wrong of the Right Tour.

* Denotes that this song was not included on the CD release.

"Hardset Head", which had never been performed live before, was to appear on the CD but was dropped at the eleventh hour due to copyright issues. It was available for download as an mp3 file on Nettwerk's website and later appeared on Back and Forth 6 in 2003.


The show was also recorded via DV video for a DVD release. Nettwerk, due to financial reasons, ultimately decided against the release.


Backing tapes were used for the rest of the music.
