VOIVOD (CANADA)


Voivod started in 1981, when guitarist Denis D'Amour (Piggy) had been searching for several musicians to start a band with, until he found Jean-Yves Thériault (Blacky), who agreed to play bass in his band. However, the band didnt come to until November 1982, Voivod officially became Voivod after they hired Denis Bélanger (Snake) as their singer in January 1983. The completed lineup played their first show on June 25, 1983, and played cover versions of Judas Priest, Motörhead and Venom songs, as well as their own material. This gig was also recorded on their first demo ''Anachronism'', which credited the band members as Snake - "throat, scream, insults, mike torture & weapon operator", Piggy - "burning metal-axe, electro- motive force & tremolition", Blacky - "blower bass, pyromania and shit" and Away "thunder and death machine, horror and visions". After recording a series of demos, Voivod was discovered by Metal Blade Records owner Brian Slagel. The band agreed to record their song "Condemned to the Gallows" for his "Metal Massacre V" compilation, and Slagel offered the band a recording contract with his label. In 1984, Voivod entered the studio to record its debut studio album, resulting in "War & Pain", which arrived in the summer of that year.
