VOIVOD: Fake Demos Hit The 'Net

A four-song recording purported to be pre-production demos for the forthcoming VOIVOD album currently making the rounds on the Internet is in fact a promotional tape recorded back in 1995 by a U.K. group called COLLAPSE.

The band, who broke up shortly after the demo was recorded, cited VOIVOD and CONFESSOR as their main influences and performed WATCHTOWER and IRON MAIDEN covers during their live set. Two members of the group — bassist/vocalist Harry Armstrong and lead guitarist James Ogawa — have since joined British "stoner rock" outfit HANGNAIL, who have released two full-length albums through Rise Above Records.
