VOIVOD
INFINI
RELAPSE

Finishing up where KATORZ left off, the final round of posthumous musical output from deceased guitarist Denis “Piggy” D’Amour has arrived in the form of INFINI, a 13-track collection dutifully piecing together the remainder of the compositional odds and sods D’Amour left behind on his laptop before succumbing to cancer in 2005. The rest of Voivod had the tough task of not only grieving over a lost comrade, but rifling through material to draw up a tangible release as well, an undertaking the remaining members administer admirably. Spearheaded by Jason Newsted’s punchy production and roaring bass guitar rumblings (“Treasure Chase”, “From the Cave”), songs like “Volcano” rip out with a Motorhead punk-thrash vibe, while “Krap Radio” demonstrates the bands disdain via the troupe’s trademark slanted slash and burn style. Paying homage to a fallen friend, INFINI is an inspired affair that fondly closes a chapter in this band’s legacy.
