Voivod - Dimension Hatross

1988 Noise Records :: Reviewed by rofreason on 2005-07-14

Voivod continue the brilliance of Killing Technology with the addition of newfound technical confidence and increased production. This is the last album for Noise, and the last truly "raw" record that they would record. As with Killing Technology, the force that drives this record apart from any other is the guitar work of Denis D'Amour. He created lines that were so complex that he complained of the concentration required to play them live. Fortunately for us, they were recorded, and Dimension Hatross finds Voivod in prime form. I can't begin to convey the effect that these songs have, they are truly incredible. Listening to the album transports you far far away, to a place that is truly mechanoid in nature. This album is what "industrial" bands wish they could play, and shoudl probably be listening to for inspiration. Snake's voice has continued to evolve into the agonized machine that was at it's apex on this and the next albums. There is not one weak spot on this album, again, it is in the same vein of Killing Technology, but better and more technically advanced. A stunning achievment.
