Description

Very few bands survive for four decades. Even fewer are those that continue to reach new creative heights, long after legendary status has been achieved. Voivod were never like other bands: even as the thrash metal scene exploded in the early '80s, the Jonquiere, Quebec crew stood apart, both as unique visionaries and as proud subverters of the metallic norm. From early prog-thrash classics like "Killing Technology" and "Dimension Hatross" through to the psychedelic explorations of "The Outer Limits", Voivod have been standard-bearers for individuality and creative freedom for nearly 40 years.

An extraordinary, multi-faceted prog metal colossus, it confirmed that Voivod are currently enjoying a fresh surge of power and passion, even as they approach their 40th anniversary. One of the band's most successful albums yet, "The Wake" won the Juno award for Best Hard Rock/Metal album of the year in Canada and scored chart entries in Germany (#26), Switzerland (#51), Belgium (Wallonia) (#94) and the USA (New Artist: #8 & Overall: #148): confirmation that the band's
