VOIVOD Releases AI Technology-Based Video For ‘Quest For Nothing’

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Canadian sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD have released a music video for “Quest For Nothing”, a song off their latest album, “Synchro Anarchy”. One of the first clips created with AI technology, the video was produced by Luc Leclerc of Above The Void.

VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin comments: “When AI art started appearing online a few months ago, my jaw dropped to the floor. When Luc Leclerc, webmaster for VOIVOD, showed me what he could do with AI animation, my jaw dropped to the basement! His video perfectly captures the dystopian side of the music and lyrics for ‘Quest For Nothing’. Hold on tight to your seat and enjoy!”

VOIVOD will release a new EP, “Ultraman”, on November 4 via Century Media Records. The effort features a highly original tribute to the “Ultraman” TV series theme as well as previously unreleased bonus live cuts, available both as a 12-inch vinyl EP or as a digital EP. The “Ultraman” EP will be released in perfect timing for VOIVOD‘s return to European stages as special guests for Swedish progressive metal/rock group OPETH on their “Evolution XXX” tour in November.

VOIVOD’s drummer Michel “Away” Langevin states, “As a kid I often dreamed of finding a Beta Capsule, so I could transform into Ultraman, keep the city from being destroyed by a giant fire spitting monster, and hopefully save Akiko Fuji in the process. I’m pretty sure many people had the same dream…we sure did in Voïvod, and that’s why we decided to cover the main and battle TV themes for this EP. The recordings were done during the ‘Synchro Anarchy’ sessions and Chewy sings the Japanese parts! For the B side, we tracked down the lost encore from the 35th anniversary show, Return To Morgöth – Live 2018. Enjoy!”
 
VOIVOD’s “Ultraman” EP will be released in perfect timing for the band’s return to European stages as special guests for Swedish progressive metal/rock group Opeth on their upcoming “Evolution XXX” European tour in November 2022. Tickets are available to purchase, HERE.
