VOIVOD's new album, "Target Earth", sold around 1,500 copies in the United States in its first week of
release. The CD was issued on January 22 via the band's own company, Iron Gang Factory, and Century Media.
VOIVOD's previous album, "Infini", opened with around 840 units back in July 2009.
"Target Earth" was recorded in early 2012 at Pierre Rémillard's (OBLIVEON, CRYPTOPSY, KRISIUN, MISERY INDEX) Wild Studio in a small town called St-Zénon in Quebec, Canada and was mixed by Sanford Parker (PELICAN, NACHTMYSTIUM). The follow-up to 2009's "Infini" contains the band's first music to be written with guitarist Dan Mongrain (MARTYR) following the passing of original axeman Denis "Piggy" D'Amour in 2005. The original art was once again drawn by drummer Michel "Away" Langevin and features color schemes from each one of the band's previous albums.
