Nov 18th 2013 Un Chewy dans l’armée du Voïvod – Dan Mongrain inédite

Je n’étais pas un proche de Piggy, mais j’étais un proche de sa musique. Depuis l’âge de 11 ans, mon band préféré c’est Voïvod. Tout ce que j’ai fait avec Martyr, c’est tout tiré de Voïvod directement

Ce qui est le fun avec Voïvod, c’est que tout le monde travaille sur la toune. C’est vraiment une sculpture collective, un trip collectif

Blacky a un son, une attitude à la basse électrique et à la composition. Tu reconnais sa signature. Ça faisait 17 ans qu’il n’était plus dans Voïvod. Il a vraiment sa personnalité sur ce disque-là

Jul 18th 2013 Target Earth Music Video

The idea for the video - that is for the title track Target Earth - is to recreate in 3D Motion Graphics the visions and artwork of Michel-Away. The whole universe of the video is robotic: the Earth itself is revised as a cyber planet. The main character, alone in an empty room, is handling a strange kind of computer, which appears to control the entire planet.

Mar 30th 2013 Interview with Chewy from Voivod by Angela “The Hunter”

Replacing a legendary guitar player like Piggy in the infamous VOIVOD would seem to be a daunting task. It is with astonishment how MARTYR’s Chewy has stepped into irreplaceable shoes and taken over the guitar duties.

Feb 20th 2013 Target Earth review on Metal-Fi.com by Alex

Progressive thrash. Dissonance. Minor chords. Odd signatures. Distorted bass. Canadian. Voivod. Any questions?

Feb 12th 2013 Metal Wani review “Target Earth” by Sairaj Kamath

Sorry Grim Reaper, but your dastardly plan to destroy Voivod has failed. Even years after the unfortunate passing of the great Denis D’Amour, Voivod has risen above the whispers of uncertainty and doubt to release some fantastic proggy-thrash metal goodness to soundtrack their post-apocalyptic science fiction world depicted in Target Earth. Technically their first original work after the laudable cut-and-paste job of Infini, this album also marks the debut of guitarist Daniel Mongrain and bassist Jean-Yves Theríault, who gel fantastically with the band to make Voivod sound as great or greater than they’ve ever been.

Feb 4th 2013 Target Earth par Kristof G.

Enfin, un vrai de vrai album de nos plus célèbres prog-métalleux, après les albums posthumes qui suivirent le décès d’un des plus singuliers guitaristes que le métal ait connu, Denis « Piggy » D’Amour (1959-2005).

Feb 4th 2013 Target Earth Review by Eduardo Rivadavia, Blabbermouth

Four years have passed since VOIVOD’s last album, “Infini”, and seven since the tragic demise of guitarist Denis “Piggy” D’Amour, but the Canadian progressive metal institution clearly has no plans of calling it a career…..

Jan 28th 2013 Interview – Voivod by Pete Woods

Just an hour and a bit before this interview was due to take place I could have literally killed technology as I had what can only be described as a bastard power cut.

Jan 28th 2013 Heavy Blog Is Heavy-Target Earth-Review by Juular

For a long time fans of Voivod have been weary of what would happen when the band inevitably ran out of material left over from former guitarist, Dennis D’Amour (Piggy). Which is completely understandable, as Piggy was seemingly the key writing component of the band for the the first two decades of their formation….

Jan 27th 2013 Voivod : inoxydable!

Non seulement l’esprit originel de Voivod est-il miraculeusement préservé dans ce Target Earth, non seulement cette mixtion métal prog-thrash-speed retrouve-t-elle ses propriétés originelles, non seulement ses interprètes y font preuve d’un jeu impeccable…
