4.0 excellentMitch | June 10th 21

Very nice. The followup kinda sucks balls, but the debut is quite satisfying.

3.0 goodGamamJ | April 11th 20

Voivod?s first is a greatly punk-influenced record which shows only glimmers of their 1987- work. Still, ot is not by any means bad, though it loses the raw magic about half-way through.

3.5 greatChickenCatacombs | September 22nd 18

A raw and sloppy album though it may be, that's part of the charm with this one. It's Mot?rhead worship with a demented twist, solid stuff (for the most part).

3.5 greatTyrone Peisker | November 26th 17

Not the very best Voivod release, but it did feature some classic songs including "Warriors of Ice" and the classic title-track.

4.0 excellentFirstStrikeIsDeadly | June 13th 14

Although Voivod is famous for their more intricate, technically impressive progressive stuff, War and Pain is simply raw, loud, fast, and angry. It's hard to describe this with a simple category, but it's definitely got some evident thrash and punk influences. How many other albums have Snake threatening to rape your child? Voivod (the song) contains a seemingly simple yet memorable and badass main riff, with a catchy chorus too, not to mention the headbanging fucking mania nearly three minutes in. Then there's Warriors of Ice, with that awesome chorus riff and killer climax, the decidedly UN-sexual and lovably violent Suck Your Bone (Which sports another memorable chorus!), and the galloping riffage of Nuclear War. There are other good songs, like Blower, which thrashes your face to hell. The loud and rough production makes this a bit of an acquired taste, and the lyrics are juvenile and sometimes outright incoherent. ("GO SHIT! I'M NOT A FISH!" The concept of the Voivod in the land of Morgoth is cool and all, but you wouldn't know anything about that if you hadn't read about it.) Still a great raw thrash album, and Away's performance is particularly notable; I love the way he opens these songs!
