Voivod Perform Dimension Hatross And More

I saw my favorite band, Voivod, on Thursday the 7th of June. It was quite the show. Here is what they played.
Dimension Hatross

The first thing they did was play Dimension Hatross in full. It was amazing to say the least. Here are detailed track reviews.
Dimension Hatross

They do not play this track live which is quite a shame because it opens with one of their greatest riffs. While the tone was a bit off on the guitar, Chewy did a great job pulling it off. There was a very strange fanatic next to me playing the riffs on air guitar perfectly... This went on for most of the show.
3Tribal Convictions
Dimension Hatross

While not my favorite track on the album, it is the most popular and it showed by the masses (including myself) replicating Snake's vocals. The climactic moment was definitely the end when Snake chants the "who's dog/god" part. Everyone was shouting.
Dimension Hatross

The song was fairly great but a burst of energy occurred as the tempo hastened. Definitely a high point of the show.
5Technocratic Manipulators
Dimension Hatross

A crowd favorite. The song really got great about halfway through when the bridge was played. A great surge of energy.
6Macrosolutions to Megaproblems
Dimension Hatross

This track is another good one. The crowd is always on edge waiting as Chewy did all the small solos. As expected, we all chanted with Snake at the bridge.
7Brain Scan
Dimension Hatross

This track is considered by some to be the best on the album. From the start with the spacey echoed guitar riffs through the ever evolving song, it was fantastic.
8Psychic Vacuum
Dimension Hatross

As great as this song is, I was really waiting for the finally. The last minute or so is just pure bliss. But when they played it, it was just chaos. Anyone who didn't headbang through out the show just went crazy here. This was another high point.
9Cosmic Drama
Dimension Hatross

I never felt this song was the best closer for such a great album, but it doesn't change the fact that it is great. During the show, they really exadurated the last few seconds, really made it great.
10The Encores
Dimension Hatross

I would have been quite satisfied with what they just played me, but instead they surpassed my expectations. Here are some more tracks they played.
11Jack Luminous
The Outer Limits

Before the song started, they were joking about how Blacky had quit before they made this album. They were hinting at the fact that it was going to be a song from The Outer Limits. Knowing that the only popular song on that album is Jack Luminous, I thought it was impossible. I thought there was no way they could play an 17 minute song as an encore! But when the opening bass line began, O nearly came. This was the best song of the show. Every section produced such emotion. You had to be there...
12Target Earth
Target Earth

After that amazing song, they played the title track of their upcoming album, Target Earth. I wasn't expecting much considering the quality of their latest albums, but this song really delivered. It was much heavier than their recent material, and really sounded like their old Dimension days. Some of the vocals were very well played over the riffs and sounded very psychedelic, think some vocals off of Angel Rat. The song had a lot of Stop/Starts and syncopations,it was amazing and I am really looking forward to the album. A downside however is that many guitar riffs were overpowered by bass and drums, rendering my judgement of the track as a very limited one.
13Astronomy Domine

Given that this is their most popular song it seemed appropriate to close the show with this cover. While I like this song almost as much as Floyd's original, it really lacked energy in a live setting especially after being played after all the heavy songs of Dimension Hatross, the epic Jack Luminous, and Target Earth.
