Product Details

VOIVOD (Canada) - Forgotten In Space (sealed 6LP Vinyl Box Set) (2022) Voivod was formed in 1982 in Jonquière, Quebec, Canada. Influenced equally by the new wave of British Heavy Metal, the burgeoning Hardcore Punk scene and 1970's Progressive Rock, Voivod forged a distinctive brand of Heavy Music that often relied on lyrical themes such as Reagan-era Cold War politics, post-apocalyptic literature and science fiction.

Killing Technology (1987) began the band’s evolution in earnest, with the character from Voivod’s album covers (drawn by drummer Away and named as “Korgull” on 1986’s Rrröööaaarrr) significantly being depicted in a spaceship. Drawing more heavily on Hardcore Punk than Metal influences by this point, Voivod began evolving without the aid of increasing speed and storytelling on the following Dimension Hatross.

Voivod was one of the first Thrash bands from Canada to gain popularity outside of their country’s borders, reaching the peak of their global popularity with the 1989 album Nothingface which featured a cover version of Pink Floyd’s “Astronomy Domine”.

Much of the band’s sound comes from guitarist Piggy’s use of dissonant chords, usually played in the high register of the guitar, used extensively on Nothingface. Albums like Dimension Hatröss are dominated by unexpected time signatures and guitarist Piggy’s liberal use of dissonant, unconventional minor chords. It was this unique style that won them the Visionary award at the 2017 Progressive Music Awards and sees them play all over the world to this day, to their huge global fanbase.

  • Rrrröööaaarrr
  • Killing Technology
  • Dimension Hatröss
