1 stars Tribute as it is, Katorz is a poor album. The album is void of any progressive tendencies, and any hope at hearing any new or innovative music should be put out before listening, because in the way of simplicity on this album, this is basically like Voivod-does-AC/DC.

The album basically sounds tired, with otherwise good riffs just pieced together in standard hard rock songs. Of course the musicianship is there, but there's nothing much that states how great a guitarist Piggy was, and if anything it leaves behind a sour taste in Voivod's legacy. There's no atmosphere, and at times no energy.

Voivod fans will pick it up, listen to it maybe two or three times, and then keep it in their collection. Other prog fans really shouldn't bother.
