Voivod – Target Earth

For a long time fans of Voivod have been weary of what would happen when the band inevitably ran out of material left over from former guitarist, Dennis D'Amour (Piggy). Which is completely understandable, as Piggy was seemingly the key writing component of the band for the the first two decades of their formation. So, when it was made known that the band's latest record, Target Earth, would be the first album to feature contributions from Daniel Mongrain (Chewy), the man who took over lead guitar duties for the band's tours once Piggy passed away, weariness turned into apprehension. It's been made abundantly clear that when a pivotal member of a band is replaced, well the results can be less than desirable.
