As someone who much prefers Voivod’s true Thrash days, this is a hard album for me to rate. What Voivod were doing in their career with this and their previous album was pretty much unprecedented. No one had really combined Tech Thrash Prog Metal with weirdo avant-garde intricacies yet. Hell, there were barely any normal Prog Metal bands at the time. Voivod were already living in the 2000’s by the time they recorded Nothingface.

And yes, it is as interesting as it’s made out to be. Everything about it is odd in a very well done and endearing way. Never too odd to make it unapproachable (it was actually by far their catchiest album upon release) but always packing enough surprises to keep in interesting. The songs stand out with memorable riffs and some surprisingly catchy hooks, but they are all so odd that you never really get them memorized. There’s always something new to catch.

The weaknesses here are that there are a lot of start-stop tactics that just fracture the listening experience. They seem to change tempos and rhythms with the purpose of jolting you. Since they go for a much more melodic sound here, it’s really not enjoyable to be jolted and thrown when getting into some of the fantastic melodies and rhythms they lay down. Missing Sequences is a prime example of this; most of the song features speedy drumming and some of their best lead guitarwork to date, with some fantastic harmonized riffs. And then there are segments where everything just stops

전작에서 스래쉬가 좀 빠지고 그만큼 프로그레시브 해졌다. 처음 들었을땐 첫곡을 듣고 왜이리 팝적인가 하는 생각을 했었던 기억이 있다
level 20   90/100
opäť posun a zmena. Technické, progresívne album pohybujúce sa v metalových a aj rockových vodách. Podarené, jedine zvuk albumu mohol byť hutnejší,
level   90/100
개성이 너무 확고해서 조금씩 보이는 단점도 애교처럼 느껴진다.
level 9   95/100
A dopey, psychedelic Thrash Metal trip. Deeply breathe in the weird Old School Progressive Thrash fume, I'm sure you'll see stuff.
