PostSubject: VOIVOD- Discography   Sat Apr 24, 2010 7:30 pm

The exquisite anamoly that would become Voivod was originally formed in 1981 when the already adept Denis D'Amour (Piggy) began searching for musicans to play with. The first major dude he found was Jean-Yves Theirault (Blacky) who agreed to play bass, but also had never played an instrument before, so Piggy took him under his wing. Blacky would later hire Michel Langevin (Away), an old friend from high school, to be the drummer as well as contribute his artwork and postmodern concepts. As a trio, they set out to make their own barrage of noise and alter the future. Unfortunately, the plane hit the mountain before it got too far off the ground, according to Away "everything went wrong because we couldn't play. Piggy was the only true musician". For Blacky and Away to hone their skills, Voivod would take a full year off, eventually reforming in 1982. By January of '83 Denis Belanger (Snake) was hired on vocals, and the futuristic warriors were complete. They would play their first show on June 25th, 1983, which was recorded and released as the Anachronism demo.

Anomalies

Voivod's first demo is probably what a nuclear explosion would sound like. Heavy, explosive, but oh so noisy and dirty as fuck. Despite the production problems (ok really, it's non-existent, someone obviously just sat a tape recorder on the stage) this is a banger of a demo. It sounds like Venom smoked some dust and actually learned how to play their instruments. The cover selection (though it sticks mainly to Motorhead and Venom, aside from a few awesome NWOBHM surprises) is really good here, the crazy warrior gods obviously took their time practicing 'em and nothing sounds out of place. Piggy's obviously a great guitar already at this stage, if the covers aren't proof enough (the drum/guitar interplay during Gunslinger is very noteworthy), just check out the solos in the couple originals! Blacky's bass has a pretty good burp going too, despite the shitty demo sound, Snakes vocals are unfortunately lost alot of the time in the mix but Aways thunder is always there to bring it all together. Bad sound or not, you could tell Voivod was something totally different and meant business though. As good as the show is, I'd really only mention this to pick up to completeists because of said sound issues, but everyone should hear it at least once.

Snake: throat, scream, insults, mike torture & weapon operator
Piggy: burning metal-axe, electro- motive force & tremolition
Blacky: blower bass, pyromania and shit
Away: thunder and death machine, horror and visions

I gotta get this demo, I'm hoping you continue this thread when you have the time. I really dig Voivod but don't own much so I'd really benefit from this thread.
