Voivod say “music is music,” don’t obsess over sub-genres

Canadian metal iron men Voivod played their first SF Bay Area show in nearly a decade this past weekend, opening for local legends Neurosis.

Plagued by flight delays before the show, frontman Denis “Snake” Bélanger and guitarist Dan Mongrain made time for a quick chat with us and gave their advice on cutting down recording costs (practice a lot!) and why they managed to retain such a loyal fanbase despite not always sticking to one style of metal.
