Infini

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Greg Prato
Possibly more so than any other prior Voivod release, 2009's Infini is all about their late guitarist and co-founding member, Piggy. Armed with guitar parts he recorded prior to his 2005 passing, the surviving Voivod members subsequently set out to finish off these final tracks.

Back in the '80s when most metal guitarists were busy shredding away and/or trying to "out thrash" the next guy, Piggy's jazz-oid guitar playing was a breath of fresh air amongst all the standard shredding
oodling going on at the time. And it was an instantly recognizable, signature style he pursued until the very end, as evidenced by such tracks as "Earthache" and "Global Warming." And on the album opening "God Phones," Infini sees Voivod focus more on "the metal" rather than "the prog" another style the group has been known to detour into. If Infini turns out to be the final Voivod album, then the group has gone out on a high note -- with help from one of metal's most underrated guitarists of all-time.
