Angel Rat Reviews

Reviewer :  level 12   90/100
Date : 
One of those albums where everything just feels off… except after repeated listens, I have determined this to be quite intentional, and done in the best way.

You see, Voivod get bored easily, and they had already been down many musical avenues, and pushed the limits of music (and their own abilities) multiple times. On Killing Technology, they showcased the extent of how fast, aggressive, and technical they could play. On the following Dimension Hatross and Nothingface, they were at the forefront of slightly avant-garde Progressive Metal, making albums quite bizarre in musical structure, showcasing complex songwriting ability. And now we have Angel Rat, which at first listen just sounds like them giving up on trying to prove anything anymore. Only faint glimpses of their progressive technicality remain on what is almost a poppy, Post-Punk inspired Alternative Metal album.

I was disappointed at first, as I think anyone would be. But something about the album kept me coming back, and I realized something. Voivod have transcended using technical speed or complex songwriting. They are taking the term “progressive” to a new frontier here, and focusing on creating very complex, ever changing MOODS. If you can imagine a mood having an odd time signature, this is absolutely it. Every song here, despite having relatively simple instrumentation and structure, jumps between some of the most schizophrenic, bipolar moods I’ve ever heard, all without janky start-stop instrume

another great album. Combination of Progressive Metal & Rock with some experimental parts

album, ktoré niektorí fans uznávajú, iní hania. Ja sa radím do skupiny, ktorá dokáže oceniť kvalitu daného albumu, aj keď je štýlovo inde, než predošlé albumy. Je viac rockové než metalové, experimentálne, hravé, spev je lepší než na predošlých dvoch albumoch. Niekedy má hudba blízko k fínskym Waltari
