Canadian sci-fi metal legends Voivod return with a special Anniversary studio album entitled Morgöth Tales, to celebrate their 40 years of existence. The album is released through Century Media Records. The band have also released a new live video of the song “Thrashing Rage.” The video was recorded by the Rockpalast/WDR team, when the band made their appearance at Germany’s Rock Hard Festival.
Watch the new live video of “Thrashing Rage” on YouTube:
Voivod drummer Michel “Away” Langevin checked in with the following comment about the clip:
“At the end of the last USA tour in May, Rock Hard Festival asked Voïvod to fill in last minute for Discharge, who could not make it. We last played there in 2015 and love the outdoor amphitheater as well as the metal family atmosphere on the site and backstage. One of the highlights for me was watching Brian Downey’s Alive and Dangerous from the side of the stage. Here’s “Thrashing Rage,” a cut from our May 27th, 2023 Rock Hard Festival show, filmed by the legendary Rockpalast during our ‘Morgöth Tales’ tour, which is not over yet! See you on the road soon…”
