Voivod: Power and precision to the hilt | Photos

Voivod in Seattle. (All Cat Rose photos)

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.

Our reply: Voivod. End of discussion.

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.

Here's Cat Rose's photos:
