Listen to Voivod on The Strombo Show

Editorial Staff

"I'm a nuclear creature for atomic fight. Come with me in my spider line in the black hole of the night." — Voivod, "Voivod"

The Strombo Show runs the gamut this Sunday night, keeping the spirit of radio alive by delivering the best records in the best order. It's a show for music lovers by music lovers, ranging over three hours of commercial-free music to honour both old and new.

George Stroumboulopoulos was joined by the legendary band Voivod for an intimate conversation to explore their legacy and celebrate their latest album, Post Society EP. 

Voivod is a prog-metal pioneer of a band from Jonquiere, Que. It's one of, if not the, most important metal band in Canadian history. Denis "Snake" Belanger and Michel "Away" Langevin join George for a conversation that digs through their three-decade career. They'll discuss their relationship with their biggest champion, Dave Grohl, reminisce about the Jason Newsted years and honour the life of their late guitarist, Piggy.

You know what to do: Lock it. Crank It. Join the collective.
