VOIVOD Discusses Split With Bassist BLACKY

Thrash Eaters recently conducted an interview with Canadian metal innovators VOIVOD in Paris, France.

On the split with bassist Jean-Yves Thériault (a.k.a. Blacky) and addition of Dominic “Rocky” Laroche:

Michel “Away” Langevin (a.k.a. Away; drums): “Last year, Blacky didn’t agree on how the band should be managed and all that, so we parted ways. And we didn’t want the situation to be complicated. I mean, we could have phoned back Jason [Newsted, former METALLICA and VOIVOD bassist] and all that, but that’s complicated; it’s another set of issues. And we wanted to be able to give each other a call and say, ‘Let’s jam,’ and go to the rehearsal space. So that’s what [VOIVOD guitarist guitarist Daniel ‘Chewy” Mongrain] told me. He said, ‘I know somebody, and I’m sure, sure, sure, sure, sure he can do it.’ And I’m, like, ‘Great! Let’s jam.’ And that was it.”

On VOIVOD‘s recent return to the studio:

Mongrain: “‘We Are Connected‘ [which was released on a single earlier in the year] was the first song we composed all together, as this new lineup. And we went another time for a second song. It’s not out yet. So each time we go at the same studio, and each time we get better at how to manage the studio and, as a team, how to work together. So it’s getting better and better each time. And we have more songs to come in the writing process, and we’re gonna go back to the studio and record some more. So it’s pretty exciting to write again.”

VOIVOD‘s latest album, “Target Earth“, as released in January 2013 via VOIVOD‘s own company, Iron Gang Factory, and Century Media.
