Voivod, Vektor, Eight Bells, Davidians

When: Tue., Feb. 16, 8:30 p.m. 2016

In its heyday a quarter-century ago, Voivod flirted with fame. But while peers in thrash’s Big Four went on to headline stadiums, the Canadian outfit’s ambitious blend of heavy metal and prog—imagine King Crimson’s genes spliced with those of Venom—led to perennial cult status. That said, Voivod was and is one of metal’s most idiosyncratic bands. Its dystopian sci-fi narratives play as potent allegories, and its dissonant riffs are jarring and thrilling. The new EP, Post Society, arrives thirty four years after the band’s formation and stands as a strong entry in a classic catalog. —Bryan C. Reed
