VOIVOD sono orgogliosi di presentare oggi un nuovo video per la loro canzone “Quest For Nothing”, estratta dal loro ultimo album “Synchro Anarchy”:
Il video è stato prodotto da Luc Leclerc / Above The Void ( ed è fra i primi videoclip interamente creati con l’Intelligenza Artificiale.

Il commento del batterista Michel “Away” Langevin:
“Quando l’AI art ha iniziato ad apparire online pochi mesi fa sono rimasto a bocca aperta. Quando Luc Leclerc, webmaster per Voïvod, mi ha mostrato cosa si potesse  fare con l’animazione AI, ne sono rimasto ulteriormente sconvolto! Il suo video cattura perfettamente il lato distopico della musica e dei testi di ‘Quest For Nothing’. Buon divertimento!”

In chiusura di 40 anni di vita decisamente movimentata, i VOIVOD sono in attesa di pubblicare il nuovo “Ultraman – EP”, in uscita il 4 novembre 2022 su Century Media Records.
“Ultraman – EP” è un omaggio molto originale al tema principale della serie TV “Ultraman”, disponibile sia come 12″ Vinyl EP che come EP digitale con le seguenti tracklist:

VOIVOD’s drummer Michel “Away Langevin” commented about the EP as follows: “As a kid I often dreamed of finding a Beta Capsule, so I could transform into Ultraman, keep the city from being destroyed by a giant fire spitting monster, and hopefully save Akiko Fuji in the process. I’m pretty sure many people had the same dream…we sure did in Voïvod, and that’s why we decided to cover the main and battle TV themes for this EP. The recordings were done during the ‘Synchro Anarchy’ sessions and Chewy sings the Japanese parts! For the B side, we tracked down the lost encore from the 35th anniversary show, Return To Morgöth – Live 2018. Enjoy!”

VOIVOD’s “Ultraman – EP” will be released in perfect timing for the band’s return to European stages, both as special guests for Swedish progressive metal/rock group Opeth on their upcoming “Evolution XXX” European tour in November 2022 as well as complimentary headline dates by VOIVOD in additional territories.
