Voivod are not crap.

I recently dug out their records to see if they held up, and they do, for the most part.

Even the later stuff before Piggy snuffed it was pretty damn good. I gots me their latest and its in my rotation.

Anyone who takes on the "Nile Song" gets huge props from me.

But then they play the video for Astronomy Domine.

That's actually what got me into Voivod in the first place, I think. That song.


This is also what prompted me to pick up the album this cover song is on.

That video is pretty cool.

I haven't got anything else by them, bu the album that song is on is not crap.

I've been listening to War And Pain as my driving music all the time lately. Holy hell is it great old-school metal. I think I already said that about five times in this thread, but goddamn.

I'm going through a thirtysomething's metal phase. Hearing this band for the first time. I like what I have heard so far.

I was listening to Dimension HAtross this morning on my iPod on the walk to work and thinking: Die Kruezen really influenced these guys, and these guys really influenced Breadwinner/Pen Rollings

Voivod, what I have heard is NOT CRAP.

Used to really like this band. I'd say NOT CRAP with a waffle of 4 for some of their later, sucky stuff.

Compare their mid-career catalogue with other metal bands of the time. No comparison. In terms of inventiveness and delivery for a while there they were the best metal band bar none. The magazine they used to produce said that they were recording an album with Steve Albini in the late nineties. I assume nothing ever came of this.

They're cool and all but overrated. Nanoman is the only song I've heard that didn't have a weak or embarrassing moment. Everything else I've checked out has interesting parts heavily interspersed with goofy, cheesy licks and pointless changes, typical of over-creative metal artistes from the 80's.
