VOIVOD – “Target Earth” Is Stone’s METAL Pick Of The Day!


Voivod - Target Earth - promo cover pic!

VOIVODTarget Earth, is the 13th studio album from Progressive/Thrash Metal legends VOIVOD. Guitarist Daniel Chewy Mongrain meritoriously steps in for the late, legendary (and irreplaceable) Denis “Piggy” D’Amour and fits in perfectly with the entire world of unique Metal sound that only VOIVOD delivers. Co-founder and bass guitarist Jean-Yves Thériault appears once again on this (thoroughly memorable) VOIVOD album; with Jean’s last VOIVOD studio album contribution being 1991’s Angel Rat.

When a band of such influential status like VOIVOD sticks to their (musical) roots while avoiding any unnecessary reinvention of their own Metal wheel, grand things can happen. Target Earth is such a “grand thing” and I am overjoyed by both this album and VOIVOD’s admirable perseverance. With 2013 being the 30th Anniversary of VOIVOD, old school fans should be drooling over Target Earth. New fans of this Canadian national Metal treasure are surely being recruited into the VOIVOD realm, thanks in part to this band’s tour stops and Progressive/Thrash relevancy.

________________________________

I’ve always embraced the originality of VOIVOD, their blend of sound coupled with experimentation really has survived a bevy of “flavor of the month” genres over the decades; while their underground aura will never vanish, regardless of how popular they are in our Metal circles. As strange as this sounds, my 80’s VOIVOD collection of Metal has survived on none other than… cassettes. I’ll never part with them either, just as I’ll never part with Target Earth.

There’s always been that comfort food type of vibe I get from VOIVOD’s Metal and I’ll never be able to explain it away. Target Earth is not just a must album for 2013; it has earned my required status among Metal albums for 2013. Get into The VOD and thank me forever. Target Earth surely will be in my Top Twenty Metal Albums Of 2013 list; this new offering from VOIVOD is that beneficial to my Metal soul. Metal be thy name.
