Target Earth

It’s that time once again, « The Best Album of the Year »! And so far VOIVOD’s latest opus, Target Earth, is making it’s imprint felt on a lot of lists, starting with this one by Metal Descent. Targer Earth is located at number 9. http://metaldescent.com/best-heavy-metal-albums-of-2013/

UPDATE : Even legendary Rolling Stone magazine also see the album as one of the great releases of 2013!  http://www.rollingstone.com/music/lists/20-best-metal-albums-of-2013-20131211/voivod-target-earth-19691231

UPDATE : For Shawn Drover of Megadeth, Target Earth is « definitely the heaviest record Voivod has done in ages », so it made his top 5 metal record of 2013!

UPDATE : Number 6 for Headbangerslatinoamerica.com !  http://headbangerslatinoamerica.com/noticias/enero2014/T0P100INTERNACIONAL.html

Recorded at Wild Studios in Quebec,  the album was produced by the band, mixed by Sanford Parker (PELICAN, NACHTMYSTIUM) and co-engineered by Pierre Remillard. Target Earth features artwork by drummer Away, who used color schemes from each one of the band’s previous albums to make this new masterpiece. The album brings back original bass player, Blacky (Jean Yves Thériault), marking his first recordings with the band since 1991′s Angel Rat. It’s also the first studio album to feature guitarist Chewy (Daniel Mongrain), who cut his teeth playing guitar to the late Piggy’s (Denis D’Amour) riffs, and thus has matched his style to a tee. VOIVOD, as a full group, hadn’t sat down to write a record together since 2003′s self-titled album. The end result harkens back to the group’s late 80′s output and after 30 years together as a band, one of their best yet.

To purchase Target Earth, please visit http://www.irongang.com/store/,  iTunes for a digital copy or CM Distro for various album formats.

“‘Target Earth’ is an instant classic…a contender for Best Metal Album of 2013.” – METALSUCKS.net

“Thirty years in, these Canadian legends are still cranking out vital and ripping tracks…” – BROOKLYNVEGAN.com

“This is VOIVOD back to business with their best record since 1990′s ‘Nothingface.’” –AOL NOISECREEP.com
