Synopsis

Amazon.com
One of the most unusual and intriguing metal bands to date, Voivod blended the surrealism of space rockers like Pink Floyd and Can with the barreling noise of hardcore metalheads such as Motorhead and Venom. During Voivod's early years (1984-1987), their music was more pulverizing than conceptual, but as they evolved, they augmented their songs with multi-textured progressive rock rhythms and bizarre lyrics about space travel, alien civilizations, and computerized monsters. The Best of Voivod features 11 mind-bending songs from six of the group's albums, along with the previously unreleased cut "Cockroaches," an infernal mess which probably didn't come out for a reason. There's even an oppressive cover of Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine," which clearly indicates what can happen when headbangers take too much acid. --Jon Wiederhorn

CD Reviews

The best "sonic adventures" from a unique band
J. H. Infante | Guadalajara, Ja, Mex | 11/30/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"A travel across different dimensions full of chaos, cyber apocalypse, nuclear holocausts , "killing technology", experimental diversity , outerspace, universal questions, altern universes and all the complexity that offers the whole universe of everything, every track explores a different topic,theorys , statements, facts , possible facts, fictional situations, many people would think that this is a train of ideas and thoughts very complicated to follow , many other would find this very interesting and appealing and even enjoyable some other would consider this bands work, the fact is that from the point of view youd like to see this progresive metal band you cant ignore them , music is progresive , heavy, variated in sound atmospheres and fascinating in lyrics subjets, a plus is definitelly "Astronomy domine" a Pink Floyd cover that Voivod recreated in an awesome version, is amazing
