VOIVOD Announce 35th Anniversary Australian Tour JAN 2019
Sci-fi thrash metal prog-punks VOIVOD are celebrating thirty-five years on the warpath, and are rrröööaaarrring into 2019 in the best possible way for Australian fans with 4 big East Coast shows.
Riding high on the critical success of this year’s compelling album “The Wake”, fans can look forward to a machine pummeling cruise on the VOIVOD spacecraft through career defining albums “Killing Technology”, “Dimension Hatröss”, “Nothingface” “Angel Rat” and “The Outer Limits” plus choice tracks from their most recent releases. VOIVOD have been creating mind-blowing music for 35 years, influencing the likes of Opeth, Tool, Neurosis, Mastodon The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Meshuggah. Founding member, vocalist Denis “Snake” Belanger prowls the stage and wins crowds with his mischievous charm whilst co-founder Michel “Away” Langevin on drums and new bassist Dominic “Rocky” Laroche pulverise the audience with intensely intricate patterns. Having recovered from the devastating loss of Denis “Piggy” D’Amour in 2005, VOIVOD have been invigorated by the increasingly imaginative presence of Daniel “Chewy” Mongrain who, ten years in, not only can channel Piggy’s groundbreaking guitar work but is developing new dimensions of sound guaranteed to shatter psyches and fire nerve-ends.
