    Hey guys,

    I've heard a lot lately about the band Voivod. I know Jason Newsted is their bassist, and being a big fan of Jason's, this tempts me to listen to some of their music. So, what's a good CD to start out with, what are some of their better songs and, most importantly, how do you pronounce their name? Basically, I'm lookin' for 'The Beginners Guide To: Voivod!' Thanks guys. :)

    i am hit and miss with voivod. i adore these LPs by them though:

    angel rat
    outer limits

    the new one with newstead is pretty good and the ones prior to angel rat are ok, with killing technology being my fave of the classic era.

    I saw them do an interview on MuchMusic a while back...haven't heard a lot of their stuff...only a few newer songs...They seem cool enough.

    I really liked their middle "prog-metal" phase. Never really got into the first three albums, or the later ones, though I do own them.
    My favorites:

    Dimension Hatross

    I've got Outer Limits, very cool. Heavy but floaty, very strange. I dig the "Voivod track" on Probot as well.

    Killing Technology is a classic. Very, Very under-rated.

    Dimension Hatröss and The Outer Limits are my favorites.

    One of the most original bands in metal. Highly influential too, even Opeth has some Voivod influences, just listen to the opening riff of Deliverance.
