With Denis "Snake" Belanger back in the line-up, and Jason "Jasonic" Newsted on bass, along with Piggy and Away, Voivod rule the universe again. Like every Voivod album, this one sounds familiar, yet different than any of their other excellent pieces of work. Voivod have never followed current trends, and they create their own path for which others can't seem to follow. The sound of this album cannot be classified into any genre other than "Voivod." Heavy riffs, excellent drumming and bass, and Denis' unique vocals & intelligent lyrics, along with weird timing changes, can only be described as amazing. As always, lots of jazz influence here, and Piggy's playing is incredible and original. He's the most over-looked guitar player in metal. This is a brilliant album that sounds better with every listen. I hope Voivod get the recognition they finally deserve. We should thank and give respect to Jason Newsted for getting Voivod back together & leaving the now cheesy and soft Metallica. This is the best album of 2003 so far.

Vioivod, is my absolute favorite band, Ive been listining to metallica since my parents have started letting me, tat has been 2 years, I personally know Jason Newsteadthe Ex bassist of metallica/founding member of the new voivod. Metallica had it down good..but VOIVO< my friends has mastered this metalform, everysong is a hit, its like putting the singles on every metalluica CD, NOT including the new cd thats the worst ever, "St. Anger", Im only 12, and i know my music very well..i am inspired by jason for everything, and Ive never heard a better band..I listen to bands like Metallica, Shadowsfall, blacklabel society, ozzy osbourne, AC DC, and many more, But voivod is the master of puppets himself, they have awsome high pitched powerchords, with slow lows, they are an all around fast band. Throw away your dumb rap, and BUY VOIVODS 13th ALBUM, "voivod"

The first thing you notice about the latest Voivod disc is, that it is Voivod. In the tracks you can hear tinges of "Nothingface", and "Outer Limits", and is in no way different from Voivod's usual style of punkish rythms, and weird time changes. Like past albums, a song will go along at a steady pace and then take a hard right in a direction you did not expect. That is Voivod. The production has up-front snare, guitar and bass sounds, and the performances very tight. Not much in the way of slick producing or effects, the album isn't conceptually overwrought but is very down to earth, organic sounding and straight-forward. Very much a group effort, Snake the vocalist speaks to the listener with clear introspection in the present and throws in his nice melody. Away's drumming somehow always progresses and gets better with each album, and has great double-bass licks as usual. He's one of the best.Piggys guitar playing is a signature style that always is his, the songs written here run concurrently as if the album is all one song with various movements. There are no leads in every song, just for the sake of having a guitar lead. But the music is very imaginative and has the mark of being a long time in the making, and not just thrown together for a comeback. A very honest effort here by the guys, and in many ways it is a tried and true Voivod that comes out here. Nothing new about the sound, is how Voivod usually sounds and Newsted stays with the formula and seems to tune his bass to their style. As far as categorizing the music, it is not a blistering Thrash attack like Destruction's "Antichrist," but rather a straight ahead, rock-type sound that has a few tunes you could headbang to. Many thanks to Jason for reforming one of the all-time classic greats of the Thrash era. The fans will never forget you. "Is It Real?" Yes it is.
