Underated canadian Classic.,
This review is from: Dimension Hatross (Audio CD)
You only need one voi vod album and it is dimension hatross. The songs seem like absolute chaos on first listen but the more you listen the more you realise it is actually intended chaos. The musicianship on offer is of an incredibly high standard and piggy's guitar tone has to be heard to be believed. The songs themselves are fantastic. Not really a band for the catchy sing along chorus, more sheer energy and violence. Ignore the progrock overtones of the story and just turn the volume up to ten to hear the intensity on offer. Slipknot? schoolgirls compared to this sonic metal mayhem.
Ironically it was the success of this album that lead to the bands undoing. It was recieved with some acclaim at the time and also quite a bit of sales success (for voi vod) so they decided to adopt the safe and lame songwriting approach that was to ruin every single album that followed dimension hatross.

Sorry the last sentence is just wrong - "safe and lame songwriting" is rubbish, in my opinion
