Jason Newsted Talks About New Voivod Album

In a recent interview with Billboard.com, Jason Newsted talked about the upcoming Voivod records via The End Records. A few excerpts from the article:

"It's the most complete demos I've ever been involved in," he says. "[Voivod singer] Snake has already chosen his effects -- exact timing of milliseconds for delay. We've had a long time to develop the demos, so there's about 23 or 25 songs that are absolutely listenable right now."

Like Metallica, Newsted was a huge fan of Voivod before he was invited to join and he remains a great admirer to this day. "They created something a long, long time ago that may have been emulated many, many times since -- but nobody can do it like the original," he offers.

Jason will be apart of another great bands demise. I hate to think what will become of VoiVod after he's gotten comfortable in the band. I know he had little power in Metallica. But they went to hell with him!

i'd like to thank Jason for rehabilitating one of the great industrial-prog rock bands of our times! Oh yea, The Outer Limits is by far voivod's best album and one of the classic metal albums from the 90's
