Voivod (singer Denis "Snake" Belanger, guitarist Denis "Piggy" d'Amour, drummer Michel "Away" Langevin, and bassist Jean-Yves "Blacky" Theriault) were one of the first thrash bands from Canada. With their unique style of performing and writing, Voivod opened the way for other Canadian thrash and metal bands. Such early releases as 1984's War and Pain and 1986's Rrröööaaarrr showed that the quartet was aligned with the then up-and-coming thrash metal movement ( Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax), eventually letting their prog rock influences ( Pink Floyd, Rush, King Crimson) seep in on 1987's Killing Technology and 1988's Dimension Hatröss. By the time of their major-label debut for MCA, 1989's Nothingface, Voivod had perfected their thrash metal/prog rock style, resulting in the most commercially successful release of their career -- spearheaded by a video for their cover of Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine" (which enjoyed airings on MTV's Headbangers Ball) and a headlining club tour over a pair of bands that would soon change the landscape of alt-rock by the early '90s, Soundgarden and Faith No More. The band reunited with Belanger back on board; they also enlisted a new bassist, Jason Newsted, formerly of Metallica, resulting in the eponymous Voivod album
We are extremely pleased to announce that NECROPHAGIA will be joining VOIVOD
Legends in their own right NECROPHAGIA., first formed in 1983 and were made famous from the tape swapping era of the industry, NECROPHAGIA pioneered the "horror metal" genre by focusing on subjects of gore and horror movies. They are returning to EU and UK after a very long absence playing classics from their discography which spans 30 years!
