5 stars Back in '88, with their 4th LP "Dimension Hatross", Voivod usurped Celtic Frost's throne as THE pioneers in avant-garde heavy metal. But "Killing Technology" came close to doing it a year earlier against Frost's "Into the Pandemonium".

This album has all of the aggression of their earlier works, and the technical proficiency of later releases. Take Fripp/Hackett guitar intricacies laid over Entwistle/Glover style basswork and jazz percussion with a thunderous double bass-drum foundation; this is what you get. I can't think of another album this complex with this much raw energy.

If you're interested in which albums have had the most impact on metal; this is a must.

Clark Ashton | 5/5 |
