It's hard to pick just fifteen from an incredibly intellectual body of work but here goes-(1)Blower
(2)Live For Violence (3)Korgull The Exterminator
(4)Killing Technology (5)Too Scared To Scream (6)Experiment (7)Brain Scan (8)Cosmic Drama (9)The Unknown Knows (10)Nuage Fractal (11)The Lost Machine (12)Negatron (13)Phobos (14)Neutrino and (15)Ion...it's sort of an unconscious running theme from the early bio-metal beginnings to "quizzical-quantum theory " nano-signature muzak....

5. ravenous medicine
6. pre-ignition
7. nuclear war
8. korgull the exterminator
9. nothingface
10. tornado
11. clouds in my house (demo version)
12. freedoom (demo version)
13. endurance II (okay, it's not a Voivod song but one of my own, nothing wrong with self promotion)




Blacky is the man!
I'd have to agree, these songs would indeed rule.
Thanks for the input!

Hey St. Michael.. could you get Tom W. to vote?
That would be so cool, to have Blacky and then Tom W. vote for their favorite 'vod songs.

Sure Yuri. Well, I'll at least shoot this thread his way. However, CF is currently quite busy on the new album. BTW, I luv the new VOIVOD.COM layout! Great work.

I personally wouldn't want any Pink Floyd cover on this best of! No cover at all indeed, except maybe 21st Century Schizoid Man with Snake at the mike!
And btw, is it gonna be a simple Best of or will some tracks be re-recorded, re-mastered?...

Voivod have been around for nearly 20 years. It seems fit to release a 2-Disk Best Of...album. That way at least 2 songs from each album can be represented and older rare and unreleased tracks can finally be released. In my above post I had Jack Luminous as the single track from The Outer Limits but due to time limits I had to switch out that song for The Lost Machine another great track. So, having a 2-Disk Best Of would be a better representation of the band and all their albums.

That's a good idea, to put some rare songs on the album.

Anyway, this is my list. No chronological order, and didn't think of the time matter, either. Only thing I would request is the songs to be remastered, of course.

1.) The Unknown Knows (Nothingface)
2.) Tribal Convictions (Dimension Hatross)
3.) Panorama (Angel Rat)
4.) We Are Not Alone (The Outer Limits)
5.) Macrosolutions To Megaproblems (Dimension Hatross)
6.) Tornado (Killing Technology)
7.) Korgull, The Exterminator (Rrr÷÷÷aaarrr)
8.) Nuclear War (Voivod Lives)
9.) Mercury (Phobos)
10.) Inner Combustion (Nothingface)
11.) The Prow (Angel Rat)
12.) Technocratic Manipulators (Dimension Hatross)
13.) Nuage Fractal (Angel Rat)
14.) Order Of The Blackguards (Killing Technology)
15.) Voivod (War And Pain)

I'd like to take this opportunity to express my gratitude to Voivod, and to Yuri of course, for letting us, fans, be a part of this new "Best Of". I humbly think I can speak for everyone on this thread, as we all feel honoured to participate actively on this new era for Voivod. Best wishes to you guys, may you achive the kind of success you always deserved. That's what we, the fans, pray for.

Although it was tough figuring out what songs to pick (there are LOTS of favorites that I left out), the songs that I would put on a single-disc "best of Voivod" CD are:

1. Voivod
2. To The Death
3. Ravenous Medicine
4. Forgotten In Space
5. Tribal Convictions
6. Chaosmongers
7. Technocratic Manipulators
8. The Unknown Knows
9. Missing Sequences
10. Into My Hypercube
11. The Prow
12. We Are Not Alone
13. Planet Hell
14. Mercury
15. Ion

I agree with the others who have stated that bonus unreleased tracks would be a welcome addition to a Voivod compilation. Or how about a separate CD (i.e., sold separately) of demo tracks & live tracks throughout the years. THAT would be great.

Does anyone know if the guys were influenced by the music from an old episode of "Outer Limits" for the Intro to "Unknown Knows"?
I have always wondered...
