Voivod is a heavy metal band from Quebec that originally formed in 1982 and became one of the first Canadian thrash acts to receive international acclaim. They began as a speed metal band, while adding a mix of progressive and thrash metal to create their own unique style. BMG is proud to offer new remastered vinyl reissues of their trio of classic studio albums released on the Noise Records label including Rrr---aaarrr (1986), Killing Technology (1987) and Dimension Hatr-ss (1988). Voivod's three albums for Noise Records from '86 to '88 ran the gauntlet from the initial speed metal overkill of Rrr---aaarrr, followed by the more experimental studio processes forged on Killing Technology, then onto the more realized progressive tendencies of Dimension Hatr-ss, which used studio sampling for the first time and, in doing so, laid the basis upon which many progressive metal bands have followed ever since. Voivod's 1986 sophomore set Rrr---aaarrr showcases their unique blend of thrash, electronic and industrial soundscapes creating a primordial fusion of progressive metal. This definitive issue of Rrr---aaarrr is a must-have for any fan of these unique and ground-breaking progressive metal masters. The album has been re-mastered from the original tapes, pressed on high quality 180g heavy-weight vinyl and the artwork replicates the original release.
