It's mind boggling that 26 years had passed since we last saw the mighty Voivod grace a stage and powerfully and precisely stick tunes into our heads like aliens pricking our brains with their devices searching for answers.

And if available, you could offer up one of the Voivod instructional songbooks that at least one fan at the gig was clutching with a grin on his face. Eager to learn and start a dissection of his own, no doubt.
So last Saturday, the Jonquière, Québec, outfit showed us how it's done at El Corazon in Seattle alongside spazzed-out grinders King Parrot from Melbourne, AU, and Child Bite from Detroit. Truth: You could not supply a more first-rate, limb-tearing triple bill if you tried. Also joining the fray were Heiress, Sanction VIII and Eye of Nix.
