The Wake, the band’s 14th LP, offers definitive proof that the old, weird Voivod is back: It’s arguably their most hyper-detailed, gloriously geeky album since the Eighties. Snake and Away are their usual inimitable selves here, but the MVP is guitarist Daniel Chewy Mongrain, who joined the band in 2008. A little more than a decade younger than the other members, he grew up steeped in Voivod’s music, and particularly what he has referred to as the eerie, chaotic, post-nuclear vibe of D’Amour’s guitarwork. The End of Dormancy is an instant Voivod classic that sums up the The Wake‘s skillful blend of the technical and anthemic. The lyrics tell the story of an underwater alien craft that powers up after millions of years and wreaks havoc, and the lone survivor of the human offensive against it. Chewy’s dazzling progression of riffs - first burly and trudging, then tense and marchlike - accompanies the tale.

The Wake" is the album of the year 2018 for me and the video I literally built from scratch for "Iconspiracy" follows the song lyrics and the spaces between them. At the same time, both the story and video fight to remain alive while trying to keep up with the infernal dynamics of the song, which represent another musical proof of the VOIVOD’s genius. Other than that, this video speaks by itself, just like the music, therefore who is prepared to be awaken, will be! The Wake will be released September 21st. VOIVOD – The Wake : 1. Obsolete Beings 2. The End Of Dormancy 3. Orb Confusion 4. Iconspiracy 5. Spherical Perspective 6. Event Horizon 7. Always Moving 8. Sonic Mycelium. 2019-06-30 Montreal (Canada) Club Soda.
