"Yes, it does sound like (Thrash/Experimental). I don't see a problem if a band were trying new different things, "as long as the new ideas are good!!".
The music is atmospheric, very heavy and original. The band does not go by rules or badly want to belong to roots of metal music. (...).
I think fans of indie/noise bands like The Jesus Lizard, Big Black, Shellac..etc would enjoy music of Eric Forest-era Voivod.
Too bad Eric had broke his back in a tour van accident the band had when they were touring and now they had their original singer back."
Great, don't listen to the naysayers!

"Yes it does not have Blacky or Snake on it, but its still cool. At first it was hard to get used to the fact that Voivod had gotten so HEAVY again, but then one can take a look at "Killing Technology and see that this is a lot like that album with better production and a bit more modern sounding (but not too much). It almost seems like Fear Factory if they had more varied riffs, I think Voivod should've actually added MORE industrial stuff to this album than the Foetus track at the end, but, then again, there can only be one Treponem Pal (buy any of their 80's albums to see what I mean). Otherwise, this album is just as progressive (maybe more) than their classic 80's material."
Not their best, but still recommended.

"Upon first listen, I was ready to write this one off. However, repeated listening has raised my opinion of it. Voivod are a band that has always changed from record to record while always managing to maintain their unique qualities. This album is a return to the raw aggression of their early albums, but without neglecting the textural craftmanship which they mastered in the interim. The song structures are simple and direct on the surface, but with subtle off-kilter elements twisting and turning beneath. This is probably the most dissonant, industrial-sounding album in Voivod's history. Forrest's vocals are VERY different from Snake's, but once you accept that, you realize how well they fit in with the material. Give it a chance, it'll grow on you. The multimedia extras that come with the cd are nice as well (I've always loved Away's art)."
