"Katorz" Is 'Mind-Blowing'

"Katorz" Is 'Mind-Blowing' - 2006-03-15

2006-03-15 - Greg Prato of <strong><a href="http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/index.jsp" target="_blank">Billboard.com</a></strong> is reporting that VOIVOD are scheduled to release their new album, &quot;Katorz&quot;, in June via The End Records. It will be the group's first CD since the passing of co-founding guitarist Denis D'Amour (a.k.a. Piggy), who died last August after a battle with colon cancer.<br><br>&quot;It came about in unfortunate circumstances, but the result is mind-blowing,&quot; drummer Michel &quot;Away&quot; Langevin told Billboard.com. &quot;Right before his departure, Denis explained to me that he had recorded all the tracks that we had been working on with [bassist] Jason [Newsted] and [vocalist] Snake [Belanger] for the past two years. He had recorded that on his laptop with ProTools, and even though he would have preferred to re-do the whole thing in a real studio, there was a chance that we could use the tracks. We built the album based on the guitar tracks, which was difficult, because normally, we go the other way around &#8212; we start with the drums, and then add stuff on top. But it sounds amazing.&quot;<br><br>&quot;'Katorz' means 14 &#8212; it's the 14th effort of the band,&quot; Belanger added. &quot;The first time Piggy put it together and gave us the demo was on CD, [and he had written] 'Katorz,' which is not the right way to write it. Of course [there is] an emotional side to it, so we took the demo, and the design of it will be his handwriting.&quot;<br><br>Read more at <strong><a href="http://www.billboard.com/bbcom/news/article_display.jsp?vnu_content_id=1002157718" target="_blank">Billboard.com</a></strong><br><br>&quot;More <a href="http://www.nuclearblast.de/band_showa.php?artist=719"><u>VOIVOD</u></a>&quot;
