Music: Voivod

Voivod could be considered the musical equivalent of the post office: The Canadian Progressive Metal quartet cannot be stopped by wind, rain, snow, sleet, dark of night (in fact, they rather prefer it), death, break-ups, lawsuits or stylistic shifts.

Voivod could be considered the musical equivalent of the post office: The Canadian Progressive Metal quartet cannot be stopped by wind, rain, snow, sleet, dark of night (in fact, they rather prefer it), death, break-ups, lawsuits or stylistic shifts.

In the band’s 32-year history, it’s released 13 albums, including the 1984 debut War and Pain, its 1989 breakthrough Nothingface and its latest full-length, 2013’s Target Earth, plus five EPs (the band’s new five-track disc, Post Society, featuring a cover of Hawkwind favorite “Silver Machine,” will be released next week). The Voivod discography also includes three live albums, three compilations and a pair of DVDs. Read more about the band in this week's Sound Advice.


Voivod takes the stage Tuesday with Vektor and Eight Bells at Southgate House Revival. More info/tickets: southgatehouse.com .
