We got a hint of Voivod’s upcoming plans a while back. Post Society may or may not be building up to Voivod’s next full length, but it still might be of value to fans of the band; it will release on February 26th. Besides compiling the tracks Voivod released as part of their recent splits with At the Gates and Napalm Deaths, this EP will also feature two original tracks and a cover of “Silver Machine” by Hawkwind. At least going by “We Are Connected”, it seems that Voivod is continuing the path set forth by their previous full-length – an accessible mixture of of their signature late ’80s sound with more modern alternative and progressive rock influences.
Not once has VOIVOD made a concentrated effort to fit into any lone construct of music. This is a band that has had punkers, thrashers and prog heads amongst its diverse, if cult-oriented audience. They’re still worth geeking over. Most listeners have continued to follow VOIVOD beyond the death of Piggy and “Post Society” rewards their devotion.
