VOIVOD: Deluxe Reissues Of NOISE Years, Available On Vinyl For First Time In 30 Years

Canadian progressive thrash legends VOIVOD will reissue their three classic albums from the Noise Records years through BMG on April 28. 1986's "Rrrroooaaarrr", 1987's "Killing Technology" and 1988's "Dimension Hatross" have all been remastered, with the CD versions containing a whole host of addition extras including a double CD of the album, a live set and an additional DVD of live performances, rehearsals and photos all compiled from the bands own personal archives. The 2CD/DVD Set vividly captures the period surrounding the albums, where the band's sound and concept come together in perfect union, and where the transition from thrash metal into something altogether more unique, was finally made. All three albums have been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork has replicated from the original release. Available on vinyl again for the first time in 30 years!

VOIVOD is a Canadian heavy metal band from Jonquière, Québec. Their musical style has changed several times since the band's origin in the early 1980s. Starting out as a speed metal band, VOIVOD have added a mix of progressive metal and thrash metal to create their own unique metal style, and are credited as one of the "big four" Canadian thrash metal bands, along with SACRIFICE, RAZOR and ANNIHILATOR.

They are considered by many as one of the most influential metal bands from the '80s, influencing and gaining praise from multiple bands and across numerous genres.

Since its inception in 1982, VOIVOD have released thirteen studio albums, as well as one EP, one live album, two compilations, seven demos and one DVD featuring a live concert. The band found mainstream success in the late 1980s with their fifth studio album, "Nothingface" (1989), which is VOIVOD's only album to enter The Billboard 200 chart, peaking at number 114.
