Recorded live at Club Soda in Montreal , Quebec's über cool sci-fi thrash prog punk experimental pioneers Voivod, have released their second live album, called Warriors of Ice.

The band has seen more than their fair share of turmoil throughout their history since forming as a proto-thrash / punk / metal outfit in 1982.

After failing to capitalise on achieving major label success in the early 90's with the awesome Nothingface album, the original vocalist Snake, and bassist Blacky drifted from the band, leaving guitar wizard and songwriter Piggy, and the incredibly talented drummer Away, to continue in an atypical trio line-up with Eric Forrest (now of E-Force) on bass and vocals, when they created the industrial thrash Sci-Fi albums Negatron and Phobos.

Their mark II line up was short lived though, as Forrest was badly injured in a crash on tour in Germany, and just as they were at their lowest ebb, they were rejuvenated a few years later by an excellent self-titled comeback album in 2003, bankrolled by Metallica's ex-bassist Jason Newsted who had been a fan, and stepped in on bass duties. The original singer Snake had returned too, and just when it looked like Voivod were once again in the ascendency, tragedy struck, with guitarist and songwriter extraordinaire Piggy tragically succumbing to cancer in 2005.

However, all was not lost, the guitar genius behind their otherworldly chord phrasing and idiosyncratic riffing, had actually recorded two more albums worth of material on his laptop which he bequeathed to the band. These excellent albums, surfaced as Katorz and Infini, with edgy punk sci-fi sensibilities, but the question remained; how would Voivod continue now that Piggy was gone?

Glad to hear the spirit of Piggy kept alive. Runs a great mix of old school thrash and their more progressive, melodic material. Band is in top form and on fire!

4.0 out of 5 stars a rebirth of a monster for the great white north / voi-vod returns! 20 Nov 2011
By john F'n doe - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
this cd cover mostly early orginal voivos pre angel rat material but adding a couple infini songs why? but leaving out any songs from the outer limits sadly.they show that the new guitarist has alot of talent to even try to fill piggy's shoes and sounding very good,I wish voi-vod had release a live album somewhere between 88-91 in their glory years to compare it to sadly there is only their lives cd with forrest on bass and i'm not a fan of his work personally.this cd definitly show voivod giving it a full force second shot at their career hearing blacky back is great too but i would have loved to heard Jason newstead doing a live cd too. those would be two great selling cds voi vod back in the day late 80's and touring with newstead on bass they would sell a ton of copies more than this but this a damn fine recording though.B+ great.

5.0 out of 5 stars It is miraculous... 9 July 2012
By Patrick D. Kelly - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I never thought I'd enjoy a live cd as much as Motorhead's "Everything Louder...". The recording is sterling; Away creates such a chest-pounding sound with a small kit; Dan channels and interprets Piggy's guitar bringing its greatness to new generations of thrashers. Snake isn't a singer but vocalist, "mic abuser" and loopy entertainer to good effect bringing lyrics to life. The set list covers VV up to date and the variety of styles, especially from Angel Rat (very welcome!) is spot on. I can't pry this cd outta my player.
