Voivod is now streaming their re-recording of "Condemned To The Gallows", which originally appeared on the Metal Massacre V Compilation from 1984. So a real throwback! Voivod will release their album of (mostly) re-recordings Morgöth Tales on July 21. Pre-orders are available here.
"The Morgöth Tales album starts where it all began," said said Voivod vocalist Denis "Snake" Bélanger. "'Condemned To The Gallows' was the first song ever recorded in a studio. I recall being shocked, hearing my voice for the first time, and I was a bit intimidated. I had joined the band only a few months prior to that and I didn't know how to sing or even if was capable of doing the job. So I jumped in, and this 40 year adventure was about to begin.
"Revisiting this song was a real trip. Going back in time when we were young and wild, recapturing that same fury inside that led us up to now made me realize that the spirit never gets old. Thanks to Mom, who kept well preserved, the only lyrics sheet existing on the surface of this planet, with my smudged left handed writing. Otherwise we would have been screwed."
