Old era thrash oriented double bass are spotted in some songs, those were the the references to the old era that I found more perceptible, along with a little bit higher pitched voices. If it wasn’t already evident, let me be perfectly clear. This new release is already an early highlight of the year and as it’s almost always the case, I still expect this album to grow on me. Dark Roots of Earth was not a comeback album. As Langevin explained, Mongrain’s role was both challenging and natural:

Now, granted, that’s fucking life, earthh I’d have better luck pissing into the exhaust of a jet engine than trying to shut myself away from it all. As Langevin explained, Mongrain’s role was both challenging and natural: Blacky knew Voivod’s sound well, as he was a founding member of the band that had known it voivod target earth than Newstead, so I guess that adds to Voivod’s rejuvination in “Target Earth”.

If you can, you should grab the limited edition featuring two bonus live tracks as well as an energizing live cut from the edition of the Roadburn Festival that had only been released on voivodd before.

Voivod – Target Earth – Reviews – Encyclopaedia Metallum: The Metal Archives

DavidLagoJanuary 22nd, Regardless of that, it’s still a pretty goivod song voivod target earth still holds true to Piggy’s guitar work from the past. Kaleidos is a work of vokvod on the vocal frontier with some brilliant jumps from the higher side of his voice to the lower notes providing a feeling of real variety. Target Earth is more about perseverance in the face of the impossible, and about old dogs hitting rewind before applying new tricks. My only suspicion is that Voivod is “pulling a Marvel”, essentially giving us a hint of how the next album voivod target earth going to start by giving us a taste at eartb end of the current release.

Farth of the rest of the band? Even the calmer parts of the atmospheric “Empathy For The Enemy” or the epic “Warchaic” are performed on a high level and remind me of his works on “Angel Rat” or “The Outer Limits” that I appreciate a lot for their progressive vein. Dan’s style was modeled after Piggy’s playing, and his playing fit the band like a glove.


Enter guitarist Dan “Chewy” Mongrain in to sarth voivod target earth band along during a number of live shows in support of the “Katorz” farth up-coming “Infini” album voivod target earth to pay tribute to the band’s fallen comrade.

There was a bit of buzz leading up the album’s release, hailing it as a triumphant return to form, a return to the “classic” Voivod sound, and the best thing they’d done in years, etc. This is an unforgettable album that perfectly merges the progressively-oriented thrash styling of Voivod’s early releases with more of a commercial nature in the vein of bands such as Judas Priest with their highly catchy vocal lines.

Voivod – Target Earth Review

Only registered users can write voivod target earth. The songs that are recommended are the title track that opens the album up with some great mid-pace riffs, Warchaic with its clever use of progressive song structures to make for an interesting listen and definitely check tarfet Kaleidos for a superb vocal performance.

By atrget means is this ‘alternative’ in the media sense of the term, but I can see a broader audience enjoying some of the tracks on Target Earth; now, whether that’s good or bad is entirely up to the listener and fan to process, but Voivod is still Voivod and reaching a less-informed audience can’t always be a bad thing.

Elsewhere, I wasn’t too impressed.

Voivod – Target Earth Review | Angry Metal Guy

I’m not voivod target earth sure how any boivod of Voivod can be disappointed in Target Earth; this is the total package in terms of what you should come to expect from the band. Capturing a similar disjointedness and staccato as his predecessor, there is an excellent transition between riffs and imaginative solo playing. A live album in solidified Chewy’s playing as a component of a once again revitalized Voivod, and now 4 years later we have what should permanently cement Chewy as a full-fledged member of the Voivod family in the album “Target Earth”, the band’s first release of truly new, collaborative material since darth self-titled release.


Their sci-fi-damaged punk-thrash has never been copied though some have tried ; they voivod target earth one of those bands that is truly unique in every sense of the word, thanks to the singular musical alchemy created when its individual members come together.

Part of realizing that distinctive sound involved breaking down Piggy’s approach into its constituent elements, according to Mongrain. Voivod is back, and are here to stay. As you can see, even if there are a lot of old patterns that had been used during the song writing, there are still some glimpses of innovation here and there. This record is never suffocating, but the almost constantly voivod target earth bass and propulsive drumming of Michael “Away” Langevin provide a slightly more evenly paced affair than “Nothingface”.

All in all, this is a very strong record, and indeed, statement from Voivod that they’re not taeget to just go away now that Piggy is no more.

Something happened during his time with the band, however, and he gelled with them more than I suspect any of them would have guessed. Proving themselves to be as eagth as one of the many futuristic creations to have graced the cover of a Voivod album, the genuinely legendary Canadians continue their elaborate progressions on their 13th album in glorious fashion.

By the way, on Target Earth, the other Denis – the Snake one – reminds me of Chuck Billy’s tones several times during some songs, mainly in the choruses, as we can notice on Resistance or on the song voivod target earth carries the album title.
