Voivod, ‘Target Earth’ – Exclusive Album Stream
Canadian heavy metal veterans Voivod are celebrating their 30th anniversary with a new album set for release on Jan. 22. What's that? You can't wait until the 22nd to hear the new record! Settle down, because we've got some great news for you; Voivod's thirteenth studio album, 'Target Earth,' is available for streaming in full exclusively here on Loudwire.
Voivod were founded in late January 1983, so it's only right that the Canadian outfit celebrate late January 2013 with a new release. Along with the band's 30th anniversary, 'Target Earth' celebrates Voivod's debut release on Century Media Records. The label is teaming up with Voivod's own company, Iron Gang Factory, to distribute the disc.
'Target Earth' marks the return of the band's original bassist, Jean Yves Thériault (Blacky), making the album his first with the band since 1991's Angel Rat. If you remember, ex-Metallica bassist Jason Newsted was a member of Voivod from 2002 to 2008.
In addition, 'Target Earth' marks the first album to feature guitarist Dan Mongrain (Chewy), who took over the slot vacated by the late, great Denis D'Amour (Piggy). The lineup is rounded out by original members Denis Belanger (Snake) on vocals and Michel Langevin (Away) on drums.
But enough with all these words, check out 'Target Earth' in full in the player below. If you dig what you hear, pre-order 'Target Earth' in one of its various packages at the Century Media store or at iTunes.
