Voivod Reveal The Details For Their 40th Anniversary Album “Morgöth Tales”


Voivod have lifted the veil on their upcoming 40th anniversary album, “Morgöth Tales“. That record finds the Canadian sci-fi loving progressive thrash outfit re-recording select tracks from throughout their catalog.

The all-new title track will also appear on that set. Century Media have announced a July 21st release for that self-produced outing. Francis Perron was behind the boards for the recording and mixing process, while Maor Appelbaum mastered the release.

Drummer Michel “Away” Langevin commented:

“It was really exciting for us to revisit a more obscure part of the Voivod catalogue, from thrash-punk to prog-metal. The title track is a new song, which we started writing on the tour bus and hotels during the Opeth European tour in November/December 2022.

It has the vibe of the experimental music we are doing nowadays, with a new twist I think. We also had the great thrill of getting Eric [Forrest] and Jason [Newsted] involved on this album.

I hope you’ll dig it. Chewy, Rocky, Snake and I certainly had a blast recording it. All aboard and ready for take off!”
