Curious to see Voivod's new album cover artwork? Well, now you can. The Canadian progressive thrash metallers will be releasing their new album entitled Target Earth soon and the cover art and tracklist have now been revealed. The album hits stores on January 21st, 2013, throughout Europe and January 22nd in North America under Century Media. For more details about the new album, head over to this location.

The original art was once again drawn by drummer, Away (Michel Langevin) and features color schemes from each one of the band's previous albums.

According to the band, fans can "expect something in the vein of Nothingface with some elements from the other albums. It will be a classic Voivod album."

"Mechanical Mind", the previously released new single, can still be streamed over here.






Target Earth tracklist:

01. Target Earth
02. Kluskap O'Kom
03. Empathy For The Enemy
04. Mechanical Mind
05. Warchaic
06. Resistance
07. Kaleidos
08. Corps Étranger
09. Artefact
10. Defiance

In the vein of "Nothingface" ey? Somehow I doubt that.

Sweet, looks like something out of a sci-fi comic

I know, right? I keep getting déjà vu feelings with this artwork.

I thought they would go for some art that was a little more epic with a title like "Target Earth."

Looks like somebody drew this on their lunch break, horrible

I think this art works perfectly. Btw all of their art is quite minimal and it is once again clearly Away's style of drawing/painting.

I enjoy the artwork a lot

Artwork reminds me of the video game Borderlands If this sounds like Nothingface I will crap my pants.

I was hoping for something more in the ballpark of Killing Technology or War and Pain in terms of the art. I like their art that has more of a "sketched/raw" feel than I do the cleaner painted looking ones.

We agree here... "raw" was the right word to describe the ones I preffer more.

if that is the case then I agree. I thought with epic you meant über-detailed, almost power metal kind sort of artwork. I definitely think the artwork of their first four albums is their best.

It really does... I rather like that artwork myself. The Voivod one just hurts my brain though.

well... never heard of them before until today, and I'm checking out the music now (I tend to judge a book by the cover). Sounds quite good!

It's basically Dave Grohl's project that he did with a bunch of well known musicians like Lemmy etc. I've never really listened to the whole thing though I don't think.

Specially if you compare it to their first 4 albums. :\

I honestly hope they're just trolling with this artwork, and I don't even give a damn about the band. :/
