Voivod Posts New Song And Video “Iconspiracy” Online

Ahead of their forthcoming new studio album, “The Wake,” Canadian progressive thrash metal legends Voivod has posted a new music video online for the song, “Iconspiracy.” You can check it out below. The song is the third from the album to receive the music video treatment, following “Obsolete Beings” and “Always Moving.” “The Wake” is set to be released through Century Media on September 21st.

Frontman Denis “Snake” Bélanger checked in with the following comment about the clip: “What I really like about Voivod fans is that they are all able to make their own interpretation of the lyrics or the story of our songs. This video is such a good portrait of “Iconspiracy” and the artist pinpoints awesome visuals in regards to the meaning and representation of the story itself. Thanks to Costin, an amazing artist who did really great work for us in the past and still blows my mind every time again. Question everything! Iconspiracy!!!”

Video director Costin Chioreanu added: “ The most difficult task of an illustrator is to work for his all-time favourite bands. Then he becomes extremely exigent with what he creates and wants to get beyond any known limit. Obviously, this type of experiences are priceless by all means at the same time, because everything goes utterly intense and he feels like a starship exploring the Universe at full warp speed and experiencing several amazing unseen worlds per second. “The Wake” is the album of the year 2018 for me and the video I literally built from scratch for “Iconspiracy” follows the song lyrics and the spaces between them. At the same time, both the story and video fight to remain alive while trying to keep up with the infernal dynamics of the song, which represent another musical proof of the Voivod’s genius. Other than that, this video speaks by itself, just like the music, therefore who is prepared to be awaken, will be!”

Voivod Releases “Target Earth” Music Video

Canadian progressive metal pioneers Voivod have completed a video for their Century Media debut album, “Target Earth.”

The video, created by Italian filmmaker and multimedia artist Nicola Piovesan, was created with 3D Motion Graphics using the visions and artwork of Voivod drummer, Away (Michel Langevin). Check out the video below, courtesy of Metalinjection.net.

Here is what Away had to say upon completion of the video: “I met Nicola Piovesan at the Voivod/Unkind show in Helsinki on October 31, 2012. We had a discussion about my 3D Graphics for the album Negatron and Nicola mentioned the possibility of him doing a 3D Motion video for our new album Target Earth. After viewing his fantastic video for THE CORE by the band ON|OFF|MAN, we knew he was the right person to capture the cyber world of Voivod. To us, the result is simply spectacular!”
