Voivod announce 40th anniversary album “Morgöth Tales” with Jason Newsted as guest

Author Flavia Andrade - 14.4.2023

Voivod will mark 40 years as a band with a new album called “Morgöth Tales”, out on July 21. On this record, they re-work their old material besides having a new song called “Morgöth Tales“.

In drummer Michel “Away” Langevin’s words:

“Morgöth Tales” covers 40 years of space exploration. It was really exciting for us to revisit a more obscure part of the Voivod catalogue, from thrash-punk to prog-metal to…?

The title track is a new song, which we started writing in the tour bus and hotels during the Opeth European tour in November/December 2022. It has the vibe of the experimental music we are doing nowadays, with a new twist I think. We also had the great thrill of getting E-Force and Jasonic involved on this album. I hope you’ll dig it, Chewy, Rocky, Snake and I certainly had a blast recording it. All aboard and ready for take off!
