Never one to be predictable, the sci-fi, progressive metal exploits of Canadian metal legends, Voivod span time and space. Recorded live in Québec City, Voivod’s latest release, Lost Machine - Live,  consists of 13 tracks spanning their epic journey across the cosmos while promoting their latest album, The Wake. After nearly 40 years perfecting the Voivod machine, Vocalist, Denis “Snake” Belanger; guitarist, Daniel “Chewy” Mongrain; bassist, Dominic “Rocky” Laroche; and drummer Michel “Away” Langevin, sound invigorated and sharp as ever.

Rocky’s opening bass chug launches the album with the opener, “Post Society” and continues on through the stratosphere with “Psychic Vacuum” from their groundbreaking offering, Dimension Hatröss. Evolving their sound into the modern day, “Obsolete Beings’, “Iconspiracy”, “The End of Dormancy”, and “Always Moving” from their latest epic, The Wake, sound right at home with “Overreaction” off of 1987’s Killing Technology. Circling back towards the band’s beginnings, the album closes with their namesake, the self-titled, “Voivod” off their inaugural release, War and Pain.

Having been fortunate enough to experience this tour first-hand, I still get goosebumps remembering the sudden shift in atmosphere as the cosmic dissonance reverberated my skull as Snake towered right over me while the band transported us all into a Voivodian wasteland while igniting the crowd into a state of frenzied psychosis.

Lost Machine - Live is Voivod’s legacy preserved in time. It serves as a primer to those new to the Voivod mythos and also a tribute to those who have welded themselves on board since the beginning. While the world seems to be spiraling endlessly into a black abyss, we can at least count on the legacy of Voivod to offer us a new way to look at the sky.
