Voivod are a progressive thrash metal band from Jonquiere, Quebec, Canada, with a very distinct sound. Formed by Denis "Piggy" D'Amour, Michel "Away" Langevin and Jean-Yves "Blacky" Theriault in 1982, the fledging group soon found the perfect singer in Denis "Snake" Belanger. A blend of thrash with some progressive rock thrown in (on Killing Technology), and lyrics leaning heavily on sci-fi imagery. One of the first Canadian punk and thrash bands to enjoy success outside of Canada Read more on Last.fm

In just four weeks time, arguably the “most metal” (whatever that means) of the UK summer festival season takes place: Bloodstock Open Air. To get ourselves in the mood for a weekend of wearing denim vests and drinking mead out of horn, we’ve put together a gigantic Sunday Spotify Slaylist, featuring the best of this year’s line-up.
March 12th, 2013
Let’s cut right to the quick: Bloodstock Open Air have added Voivod, Sabaton, Wolfsbane, Xentrix, Powerquest, Skilton, Evil Scarecrow, Mael Mordha, RSJ and Gormathon to their 2013 line-up.
Today’s ten new additions will join the headliners of King Diamond, Lamb of God, and Slayer (along with all the other bands that have been announced thus far) on the bill over at Catton Hall, which in 2013 takes place on the weekend of 08-11 August. Tickets are on sale now, starting at £125 (before fees) and rising depending on what camping, parking, and VIP stuff you add to the mix.

Roadburn, the European beardo festival extravaganza, has announced today that none other than Canadian progressive-thrash experimentalists Voïvod are to be the curators of their 2012 event. Why start making a big fuss and noise about that now, when it’s still August 2011? Because it’s a good indication as to whether or not you need to circle, highlight and underline November 26 on your calender.
