Voivod drummer Michel "Away" Langevin and singer Denis "Snake" Belanger are working on their forthcoming studio album with producer Glen Robinson (who also prodiced Voivod’s "Nothingface", Tea Party, GWAR) at Piccolo Studios in Montreal, Quebec, Canada.
The drummer recently started a blog about the studio work that will include studio updates, tidbits and photos. "Away" will update the blog on a frequent basis.
This is the first album in the band’s 20 year career that will not feature founding guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour (R.I.P) working alongside his bandmembers in the studio.
D’Amour died Aug. 26th, 2005 in a Montreal hospital from complications of advanced colon cancer.
In order to record the album, Drummer Michal "Away" along with singer Denis "Snake" Belanger and bassist Jason "Jasonic" Newsted - are utilizing all of the guitar parts that "Piggy" had recorded for the record on his laptop with ProTools before his death.
Voivod's much-anticipated, still untitled, album should surface sometime later this year on The End Records in North America.
