Early Voivod On Vinyl! “To The Death 84″ Coming Soon From Alternative Tentacles

Voivod To The Death 84 Vinyl Hard to believe, but thrash masters Voivod have been cranking for nearly 30 years now! As they approach that milestone, they’ve got a great collection coming out for Alternative Tentacles, recorded during their early days. “To The Death 84″ compiles early demos and tracks from their debut full length “War And Pain”. From the label:

“To the Death 84 is 70 minutes of loud, blistering metal / punk. Recorded live in the band’s jam space in January 1984 with an old tape recorder and a couple of microphones, it nonetheless sounds great and hits as hard today as it did back then. This demo tape was sent to all the fanzines the band knew of at the time, and has circulated among collectors for years. The lineup for these recordings was Snake (Denis Bélanger) on lead vocals, Piggy (Denis D’Amour) on guitar, Blacky (Jean-Yves Thériault) on bass and Away (Michel Langevin) on drums. The track listing includes songs from War and Pain, their debut album, and six others, including a Mercyful Fate cover and two Venom covers. This recording did its job: soon the underground world was aware of this strange vampire warlord from the cold—Voivod.”

This double slab of vinyl will be out November 22nd, and preorders are available now from Midheaven for $16. Listen to the classic track “War And Pain” below! Voivod – War And Pain by LaCueva666
