"Worlds Away: Voivod & The Art Of Michel Langevin", a book of VOIVOD-related artwork from the band's drummer, Michael "Away" Langevin, is now available for pre-order through www.voivodbook.com. It's limited to 3,000 copies, and is "so gorgeous and yummy and intellectually substantive, stocks won't last long," according to a press release.The book is hard cover, large 9" x 12" format, over 190 pages, full color throughout on premium stock, laid out and printed expertly by the same team who worked on the Derek Riggs book "Run for Cover". Hundreds of killer artworks are scattered throughout the book — loads of them previously unseen, loads of them explained and contextualized for the first time… we're talking from the '70s on. The book is written in a very similar way to the Riggs book, but the bonus is that you can consider it a bit of a VOIVOD biography as well. The different eras of Michel's art are linked to the records at the time, and footage has been used from extensive new interviews with Michel and Snake as well as previous archived chats with Piggy, Jason Newsted, Eric Forrest, Dave Grohl, plus other rockers Michel has inspired, influenced, or even did artwork for. For those who need a refresher on Michel, here's a quote from Philip H. Anselmo (and the H stands for "Hatross"): "Drummer extraordinaire known as Away, of the masters of Intergalactic Warcore VOIVOD, is the band's artistic visionary, and his brand of art complements and refines itself with each LP in perfect accordance with the band's different themes and musical growth. From chaotic, battle-ready skull-faced warriors, to his technically intimidating mecha-space stations ruling a star-dotted world of his own invention, his foreboding odd caricatures wander across landscapes on another planet, in another galaxy. Somehow his artwork depicted the music you were hearing — and the feeling it gave you while staring at Away's album cover artwork — like an extraterrestrial concoction exploding in your head and hurtling you through space in an escape pod, heading to another spider-spinning sandy dimension that only Away and VOIVOD could invent."
