Voïvod is a thrash metal band formed in 1982 in Jonquière, Quebec, Canada. Influenced by the NWOBHM, Hardcore and Progressive Rock, they are known for their unique use of unusual time signatures, dissonant guitar chords and thought-provoking lyrical themes inspired by post-apocalyptic literature, cold war politics and science fiction.

After some lineup changes in the early 1990s, guitarist Denis D'Amour and drummer Michel Langevin continued with new member Eric "E-Force" Forrest on bass and vocals. The band went on hiatus in 2001 but reformed in 2002 with original vocalist Denis "Snake" Bélanger returning and ex-Metallica member Jason "Jasonic" Newsted joining as bassist.

In 2005, Voïvod faced a tragic loss when guitarist Denis "Piggy" D'Amour passed away after battling colon cancer. However, the band released their twelfth studio album in 2009 featuring his last recorded music. Despite this setback, Voïvod continues to perform live and release albums to critical acclaim. Their album [m1425025] even reached number 8 on Rolling Stone's Best Metal Albums of 2018 list.
