So this is a thing:
http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/voivod

Looks like a bunch of you already ordered but I figured I'd put it here for stragglers.

All three releases include two audio CDs plus a DVD. Having pre-ordered all three, it worked out to less than $45 including postage.

Nice to finally have these done (even though I'm far more interested in Blacky's new material instead).

Looking forward to the '88 footage from The Anthrax, I was there, wonder if I made the cut.

All the best,
PAULIE

PS Yeah vinyl too but probably mastered from digital sources so fuck that shit.

Trying to work out if there's anything on the cd/dvd's that I don't already have. Probably gonna order them anyway. Would like the vinyl, but I already have the originals and money's a bit tight at the moment.

Who got the test pressings?

Yeah, money is the main problem here too. Gonna get the CDs, price is good for a 2CD+DVD package.

Price is excellent, considering that shipping to South America is very expensive!!!! I have all those in CD, but I loved the WAP reissue, so I'm hoping something similar to that in these packages, anxiously waiting!

Thanks for the reminder Paulie! I went and preordered the CD/DVD bundles as well. Really looking forward to checking these out. Pretty great deal!

Interested in the vinyl as well, but like you h, already have the originals. Will these be widely released as well?

This PledgeMusic bundle stuff is just for pre-orders, which many bands are doing these days. It's not necessarily a fundraising thing, just convenient. So yes, the releases will also have typical distribution and will available at the outlets you would typically expect them at. In fact the three LPs can also be pre-ordered at High Roller now (http://www.hrrshop.de/) with a release date of March 31.

Best,
PAULIE

Got them, listened to the audio CDs only so far.

I am *very happy* with the remaster of KT, it's finally crisp, the old CD was utter trash. The guitar seems a bit lower than memory serves, but still, this is leaps and bounds beyond the last ones.

An anal-retentive friend indicated that one of the bonus disks (don't recall which one) has some pitch issues, the playback is a bit too fast I think - This is sadly common these days, folks will just roll the tape and tweak an EQ but not check to see if the pitch is correct. This is particularly important since so many tape machines used to record shows ran on batteries, as well as the variance between players - A tape recorded on one machine will not necessarily be played back at the same speed on another.

Looking forward to checking out the DVDs, but this won't happen for a while yet. So if you have thoughts on those materials, let's hear it please!


All the best,
PAULIE

You guys should have been in the band, I received mine, CD/DVD and Vinyls early this month. Just teazing you guys, the package they made is pretty great, just don't like all the writing and stories, seem that the life of the band was SO hard, boo!woo! I certainly don't have the same story to tell.

Sorry me again, just saw this new book, Damn the Machine – The Story of Noise Records. Noise rip off so many bands, that include Voivod, someone have no judgement at all. Money talk bullshit walk...once again! Please don't buy into this...ok second hand maybe

Don't get me wrong, I cherish every single moment with the band, that was mine also, I started it with Piggy back in the days. Piggy and I spend almost every single days from 1981 till 1991, so for 10 years we were a team, best friends, inseparable. So for that I will never forget. The big question for me now is, did I made the right choice by coming back in 2008. Perhaps for doing shows, yes for sure, but I shouldn't have made an other record, write new songs. Voivod was over after I first left, then for sure after Piggy's death. No matter what others think or says, you can't carry a name/band without the composers.

Having you back in Voivod made it legitimate, just as much as the trio lineup was legitimate. But now that you're out, the chief composers/architects are no longer there, no deal. Voivod is over for me. And that's fine.

You should write your own book, Blacky!

I'd love to read more of your perspective!

I wish you'd never left back in 1991, Blacky, but you're right, after Piggy's death, there was definitely no more VoiVod. Thankfully we still have all those great albums. Thanks.

All this said, I'm still happy with the Target Earth album, I wrote most of the songs and try with Chewy and Snake to give it an old 80's vibe, but for sure it could have never be what we had then. Chewy is a great guitarist but he still just emulated what Piggy was doing. Perhaps now the songs he almost certainly right all by himself are more him then on Target. But Voivod is an old band now and like many old band they are a parody of themself.

About those Noise pledgemusic Re-Issues.
This articles is about Celtic Frost but can also relate to Voivod and many other bands. While this is about band vs label, there is also issues between band members, like not telling you everything, the true can often be harmful.

Hello folks,

Haven't posted here in a loooong time but haven't forgotten the site either Good to see VVF is still alive!

About the reissues: I will order all three probably next month when I have the money. RRRÖÖÖAAARRR I've never owned, believe or not, so now is the perfect opportunity to correct that. KT & DH: I have the original Noise vinyls and CDs, and I can't wait to hear the remasters!

The re-release are great, except from liner notes re-written history made by Away, once again he has done it! Omitting Wayne Archibald to be the person that contacted Brian Slagel of Metal Blade record is only one of the omissions. But hey! some will say, who give a fuck! And no he wasn't there when Piggy ask me to do a band with him, we both started the whole thing, not him....ok i'm stopping bitching here. Can someone tell that moron running the voivod.net that my name is spell Jean-Yves not Jean-Ives, it's in the top pull down menu. I try for 5 years to make that happen, but still nothing. Man that guy is a looser

The guys a loser for having a Voivod fan site?

The problem is Blacky you are on a FAN FORUM!!

And bitching about your old band, jeez take a break man, sounds a lot like sour grapes.

I think Voivod are still very credible as a band and not a parody at all, i mean Post Society was a great E.P and the band are still doing well, i mean they just supported Metallica!! does that sound like a parody?

Doesn't sound like sour grapes to me, just someone from the inner circle sharing their view - which I for one am interested to hear.

I've always loved this band - whatever the line up. It's great to have the opportunity to read these things after so many years of silence. And perhaps read between the lines? Thanks Jy. Or is that Ji?

Looking forward to hearing Eric Forrest's side of things at No Sleep til Wieleman!!

Hi Vivid, you should know that the voivod.net / voivod.com is the official website, it is no longer just a fan site, so miss spelling should have been corrected by now, I personelly ask the person in charge of it to correct it while I was still in the band, just so you know. As for the re-writing of the history of the band, I was there so I should know what happened in 1982-83 and not given the credit to Wayne Archibald is also wrong. Away has often been re-writing history in his favor. And yes perhaps I'm little piss-off how the whole band turn out. If you are close to him, ask him what happen, why I really left (force out) the band. And this website is hosted on my server so I can say pretty much what I want. kidding!!!
I don't and will never dislike the band as a whole. I was part of it and it is a part of me also. But if someone say something that I know is wrong, and I don't care who that can be, trust me I will say something at some point. I'm not call Blacky for nothing.

For them to open for one single show for Metallica is not the end of the world, I say it's about time. Good for them, I'm happy that happen. Btw do you have any idea how they get the gig? Please tell me, you seam to know lots.

I talk to E-force in 2007 I think, not exactly sure of the date, anyway we talk for a while, that was the first time I met the guy, it was backstage at a club in MTL. He told an interesting story about why he was not in the band anymore...after his accident...nothing to do with a stack of amp falling on his shoulder...trust me
