Once more recorded and mixed by Francis Perron at RadicArt Studio, mastered by Maor Appelbaum and produced by VOIVOD, “Morgöth Tales” includes fresh studio re-recordings by the band’s current lineup of nine especially selected, not-so-obvious picks from the band’s hyper-classy and extremely diverse back catalogue (between 1984 and 2003) as well as a brand-new song and the album’s title track, “Morgöth Tales”.

VOIVOD is a Canadian heavy metal band from Jonquière, Québec. Their musical style has changed several times since the band’s origin in the early 1980s. Starting out as a speed metal band, VOIVOD have added a mix of progressive metal and thrash metal to create their own unique metal style, and are credited as one of the “big four” Canadian thrash metal bands, along with SACRIFICE, RAZOR and ANNIHILATOR. They are considered by many as one of the most influential metal bands from the ’80s, influencing and gaining praise from multiple bands and across numerous genres.

VOIVOD found mainstream success in the late 1980s with their fifth studio album, “Nothingface” (1989),which is the band’s only album to enter The Billboard 200 chart, peaking at number 114.

PRONG‘s thirteenth studio album, “State Of Emergency”, was released on October 6 via Steamhammer/SPV.

PRONG frontman Tommy Victor outlined the stylistic direction of the eleven songs that make up “State Of Emergency”: “It’s a very PRONG record. I think it’s totally genre-transcending and definitely ignores what’s going on out there these days.”

Commenting on his artistic approach, he said: “I like all kinds of music. This record totally reflects that because it covers lots of different angles. At the same time, ‘State Of Emergency’ is very guitar-oriented and a typical example of my style.'”

Produced by the skillful hands of legendary producer Steve Evetts (SEPULTURA, THE DILLINGER ESCAPE PLAN),“State Of Emergency” surprises on the post-punk track “Disconnected” and then grooves on the title track. Originally released as a standalone single in early 2023, “Breaking Point” takes no prisoners with honest lyrics and cutting attitude, while hard-hitting “The Descent” is a lightning quick, classic ripper.

“Back (NYC)” has Victor saying: “To me it’s as if Jimmy Page wrote a song playing through Dimebag‘s amplifier, with Henry Rollins singing. Kind of a weird experiment, for sure!”

The album closes with a cover of “Working Man”, originally written and recorded by the legendary RUSH.

RUSH was the first power trio I ever saw live and I was blown away by them,” Tommy said. “‘Working Man’ is so simple and it’s so heavy. I also love the lyric. I thought it would be great tuned down a bit and slowed down, and I think we nailed it.”
