These iconic avantgarde metallers return in 2013 with a new album, entitled Target Earth, four years after the credible Infini, released in 2009. In their most recent release the Canadian natives return, musically, to the old sound of Dimension Hatröss and Nothingface putting up a great musical showdown of progressive and technical metal.

Rating: 7 I know the band went through some tough times but the last few releases have been subpar. I am not asking for a return to the mighty Nothingface, Angel Rat, Outer Limits era or anything but...but...ahhh, fuck yea I am!!!

I for one totally agree with Rod, Killing Technology and Dimension Hätröss is where VoivVod was at its way best and most original.
They once again proved that when they played Dimension Hätröss in its entirey at the last Roadburn. They totally kicked the set they played the before's ass.

Well, to me: Original Voivod =/= Interesting Voivod. Their early works, however technical, are just dull to me. I haven't listened to Angel Rat yet, but nothing they've done tops The Outer Limits for me, even if it is their most commercially acceptable release.
Marcel Hubregtse - 23.08.2012 at 18:56  
  The Puter Limits is almost pure Pink Floyd rip off. Might as well listen to Pink Floyd instead of a wannabee band

Their early work was interesting and had bite both those things are totally lacking in the rest of their catalogue.

People who say their earlier work is dull have obviously not heard Dimension Hätröss live and having their asses torn apart due to massive kicking.
Fantastic show.

Lol, you meanie! I think I had this conversation with Marcel a while ago. I do like their early straight up thrash era but when they "cross-overed" is when I became a HUGE fan - a top 5 band of all time for me. Progressive metal was my genre of choice in the late 80's and early 90's so what Voivod was doing then was fantastic.

Snakes voice has really fallen off the last few releases. How did he sound? Do you have a link to that set?

The current guitarrist played some mean riffs live at Roaburn both times I saw them. That I can definitely guarantee. Let's see what the band will bring but at least the dude can definitely play.

Dan Mograine is a very skilled guitarist no doubt. But without Piggy I remain doubtful, I'll definitely be checking this out anyway, Like I say I hope they prove me wrong.

  I was quite impressed with it. Nice technical talent and Snake's voice sounds pretty good.
The Galactican - 20.01.2013 at 03:53  
Rating: 10 Dan Mograine does much more than simply embody Piggy's unique style; he takes it a technical step further and completely reinvigorates the band. Mix in Blacky's return and you have their their best record in ages, standing right up there with the likes of Killing Tech, Hatross, and Nothingface.

Sorry to gush, but I'm a fan that spans decades and I'm stoked. Welcome back, Voivod!

Really, the only technical Voivod I care for is Dimension Hatross. And it still pales in comparison to The Outer Limits.

Rating: 7 Spun the whole thing last night. Twice. The production is something a little bit less desired but all in all a definite improvement over their last few releases. I don't hear a stand-out track, maybe Warchiac but at least the sound returned a bit to something like their Dimension Hatross release. I 'm giving this a 7.5-8.0 and prolly never spinning it again. It's just not memorable enough for me.

edit: This is the best I've heard Snake's voice since the early 90's, I wonder if he is sober? Anyone?

What I meant was I have a lot of other stuff to listen to and if I play a Voivod record this falls behind the stuff from their earlier years.

bruh I tell you what that's not really that generous... Ignore the rating for a moment: "never spinning in again".... That's pretty harsh haha well to me it is anyways a lot of albums I see as 8/10ish I'll listen to many times.
musicalkaratekid - 27.02.2013 at 18:10  
Rating: 8 Certainly their best album since 'The outer limits' for me.The riffs on here are really tight and solid for the most part, and make songs such as the title track, 'Kluskap O' Kom' and 'Resistance' all the more interesting to listen to. Really though this album is another example of how well Voivod has progressed over the years.
Daggon - 29.06.2013 at 20:57  
Rating: 7 This is quite a surprise for me, I mean, I don't consider their previous two albums bad at all, but this one has something special, nothing superb or groundbreaking, but I found it very entertaining and enjoyable, not the best of the year, neither the worst, just a nice album that deserves to be listened at least a couple of times. Well done Voivod.
BlueMobius - 09.12.2013 at 07:31  
Rating: 6 This album isn't bad by any means, but I wish it just had a little more bite. Everything is a little sleep inducing. The production is very soft, the guitar sound isn't very strong, the vocal attack is reserved and a little hypnotic. It's one of those albums where you put it on and 15 minutes in you aren't sure how you got where you are.
