Voivod Streaming Full New Album "Target Earth"

On January 21st in Europe and January 22nd in North America, Canadian progressive metal pioneers Voivod will release their 13th studio album, "Target Earth." The album is among Metalundergroun.com's most anticipated of the year, and now the full release is available online.

To hear the album in its entirety, head over to Loudwire.com right here. The following press release was also issued about the album:

"Recorded at producer Pierre Rémillard's Wild Studios in Quebec and mixed by Sanford Parker (Pelican, Nachtmystium), Target Earth features artwork by drummer Away (Michel Langevin), who used color schemes from each one of the band's previous albums to make this new masterpiece. The album brings back original bass player, Blacky (Jean Yves Thériault), marking his first recordings with the band since 1991's Angel Rat. It's also the first to feature guitarist Chewy (Daniel Mongrain), who cut his teeth playing guitar to the late Piggy's (Denis D'Amour) riffs, and thus has matched his style to a tee. Voivod, as a full group, hadn't sat down to write a record together since 2003's self-titled album. The end result harkens back to the group's late 80s output and after 30 years together as a band, one of their best yet."

The album's track listing is as follows:

1. Target Earth
2. Kluskap O'Kom
3. Empathy for the Enemy
4. Mechanical Mind
5. Warchaic
6. Resistance
7. Kaleidos
8. Corps Étranger
9. Artefact
10. Defiance

I dislike the album. The last 3 albums were so amazing. What a big deception to have them go back and mimic their old sound rather than move forward. Maybe it's the ultimate indication how Piggy was truly their heart and soul. Piggy was an amazing composer!

P.S. I like ''Empathy 4 the enemy'', tough...
