    If you’re already a fan of Voivod, then you know how incredibly unique they are, and the quality of songwriting on The Wake is top-notch, making it one of the strongest metal albums of the year. Voivod have progressed exponentially since their raw punkish days.

    It’s the sound of a veteran band indulging its most bizarre instincts and in the process reconnecting with everything that originally earned them such a loyal and obsessive fan base. Piggy would no doubt approve.

    The Wake is a striking album in many ways. Its scope is astoundingly large in terms of both narrative and genre-melding cohesion, yielding a very determined and dense effort that demands multiple investigations to internalize fully.

    A strong late career release. [Oct 2018, p.63]

    The Wake continues Voivod's musical legacy with a pulse-pounding album that stands alongside their classics.

    The Wake signals a new chapter for Voivod; they stand (again) at the blade edge of creative imagination and visionary execution in the world of extreme music.
