November 10th, 2011 : Cause & Effect : Voivod

Tonight and only on WRIR from 7pm to 9pm : the musical history of Voivod as only Cause & Effect can tell.

We will spend two hours exploring all their influences from punk (GBH), to metal (Venom), to prog (King Crimson), to 70's rock (Deep Purple) PLUS playing plenty of examples from their massive discography (and a few off-shoot bands).

If that wasn't enough to excite you we will also spend some time highlighting a few of Voivod's picks for their Roadburn Festival 2012 line up (Au-delà du Réel). 

And don't worry, if you don't know anything about Voivod or maybe don't even care for metal, their music is deeply rooted in so many interesting directions that there is sure to be songs in tonight's set (Led Zep, Motorhead, Sabbath, DKs, Pistols) you will recognize and maybe have a whole new appreciation for in this context.

WRIR - 97.3 Richmond, Virginia

You can see the whole set list here.

The last 5 songs didn't record for some reason so I have created a mini set of the final 5 here.

  1. I loved hearing (part of) this show - went back for a second look at Voivod and found them much to my liking. Thanks!
