4.0 excellentdannyboy89 | February 15th 13

This is an interesting record. Not at all recommended for thrash neophites; but metalheads looking for something new might be pleased with this.

"WE ARE CONNECTED." Thus begins Voivod's golden age. Killing Technology is aggressive and raw, with Snake still shouting hard into the mic, but here they begin to dip into more inspired, progressive territory. Just check out the rhythms near the end of the opening title track to see what I'm talking about. This is where Voivod really started to embrace sci-fi themes more, add new layers of technicality, and overall become the band that most people think of when they think "Voivod". Killing Technology is challenging and difficult stuff; this isn't some clich? thrash album with typical E-tuned chugga-chugga riffage, not at all. This album really brims with great ideas, from the angular and dissonant riffs driving most parts of the songs, to the more distinctly memorable moments like a great number of riffs in the opener, the fucking evil moment at about 3:24 in Overreaction, the great chorus to Tornado, or that impressively fast section starting at around 1:53 in Order of the Blackguards. A special highlight (and a serious contender with the previously mentioned rhythms later on in the opening title track) would be that one MONSTER riff in This Is Not An Exercise that plays for the first time almost a minute in. And I haven't even brought up Ravenous Medicine, which is one of my favorite Voivod songs ever. Even the sound is better than before, with raw yet competent production and a guitar tone that actually allows for some more legible riffs. Solid 4 because not everything is awesome, memorable, or both, but still a great fucking album.

4.5 superbayy | April 20th 14

An exercise in progressive metal. This is most definitely not an exercise otherwise.

This was a mistaken rating. No way this album is just "good". It is an excellent album from one of the most influential, yet unknown, metal bands of all times...
