4 stars Dimesion Hatross continues the loose concept of Killing Technology and manages to outdo even that opus. Piggy's avant-garde guitar creates the atmosphere for the album, while Black and Away propel the weirdest rythmn section in metal. Snake has continued his vocal evolution that began with Killing Technology, where he is abandoning the screams of the first two albums and replacing them with clean vocals.

This outing makes the weirdness of Killing Technology seem downright straight-foward by comparison. The band seems to have matched its concept about space travel; they, as Jeff Wagner (slipperman) so perfectly described, have become cold and robotic like the Voivod, the space creature the concept revolves around. Every song challenges your sense of what is music, with Blacky's counter-melodies spliiting your attention from Piggy's fretwork. Experiment has a bizarre opening like the title track from Killing Technology, Chaosmongers has an addictive chorus and is built upon Piggy's weird chords, they even rework the Batman theme for a moment of levity.

Chaosmongers, Brain Scan, and Tribal Convictions are the standout tunes, but you should really listen to every song on the album without prejudice and admire the genius of the band. It saddened me to no end when Piggy died, but albums like these ensure his legacy will live on.
