Voivod Complete Songwriting For New Album, To Release DVD

VOIVOD drummer Away (a.k.a. Michel Langevin) has posted the following message on the group's official web site:

We are finally done with the writing of the album.

The songs have a bit of an eerie vibe, with experimental vocals by Snake, spiralling solos by Piggy and heaviness courtesy of Jasonic!

All the '80s archives have been transfered to beta and sent to Eclectic DVD for our first DVD release.

I'd like to thank MusiquePlus, Ed Seaman, Jean-Francois Labrecque, Jeff Wagner and Ronald Mc Gregor for their contribution.

I'm still in the process of scanning hundreds of drawings for my book, to be released on Troubleman Unlimited.

All this work will result in a barrage of Voivodian material coming out in the next months.

Thanks again for your patience.

P.S.: In the latest issue of Metal Hammer U.K.: A three-page story about the making of 'Dimension Hatross', by our longtime friend Malcolm Dome. This album was crucial in the sense that Harris Johns, producer/sound experimentalist introduced me to the Akai S-9000 sampler and the Roland Octapad. Suddenly my range of spooky sounds was much wider. Some of these noises can be heard on 'Tribal Convictions' and 'Brain Scan', among others. Piggy also told me that he learned from Harris some very inventive ways to use his own multi-effects processor, which also expanded his possibilities. Much credit goes to Harris Johns for the industrial metal revolution!
