CD Editions available now and vinyl releasing Friday, May 19th, 2017.

Rrröööaaarrr
Rrröööaaarrr is the band’s 2nd studio album, released on Noise records in 1986. This sophomore album features their unique blend of thrash, electronic & industrial soundscapes creating a primordial fusion of progressive metal. This definitive issue of VOIVOD’s second album is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band. The 2CD/DVD Set vividly captures the period surrounding this album and details the band’s early development within their native Canada plus their first live ‘assaults’ across the border into the US.

Along with a previously unreleased complete show – the ‘Spectrum ’86 ’No Speed Limit Week-End’ concert from Montreal – the set also includes a complete demo of the ‘RRROOOAAARRR’ album, band rehearsal tracks and a ‘never-before-heard’ sound-collage from the tapes of Piggy, Voivod’s late lamented guitarist. The set also contains tantalising early video footage of several live concerts from the band both in Canada & the US, the grainy films providing a unique insight into this developmental world of ‘the’ VOIVOD. The album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has replicated the original release.

Killing Technology
The band’s third full album perfectly reinforces their image of a post-apocalyptic wasteland set against a thrashing-punk-speed-metal soundscape. It was released on Noise Records in 1987. This definitive issue of VOIVOD’s Killing Technology is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band. The 2CD/DVD Set vividly captures the period surrounding this album and details the band’s development as they strove to perfect their sound and become a band of international acclaim.

Along with a previously unreleased complete show – the ’Spectrum ’87 concert recorded Live in Montreal – the set also includes concerts performed by the band in both the US and Switzerland. The album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has replicated the original release.

Dimension Hatross
Highly influential Canadian prog. metal quartet continue to hone their distinctive blend of experimental speed-infused sci-fi to great effect on album number four. This definitive issue of Voivod’s fourth album is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band. The 2CD/DVD Set vividly captures the period surrounding this album, a work where the band’s sound and concept come together in perfect union, and where the transition from thrash metal into something altogether more unique, was finally made.

Along with a previously unreleased complete show – the ‘Spectrum ’88 concert – ’A Flawless Structure? (Recorded Live in Montreal, December 21st 1988)’ – the set also includes concerts performed by the band in the US. It was released on Noise Records in 1988. The album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has replicated to the original release.
