5 stars Voivod's first grand breakthrough: Very sound defining and very progressive.

After the raw thrash masterpiece that was its predecessor "Killing Technology", "Dimension Hatröss" has Voivod stepping into more progressive areas.

This album is pretty heavy and I also felt it was a little more experimental, featuring many sections with Sci-Fi-sounding effects spread all around the album (for those who don't know, Voivod's favorite lyric material has almost always been Sci-Fi).

The album begins with "Experiment": A 6-Minute track that begins with a slow fade in, only to start with a funky and heavy riff. Just like Nothingface's "The Unknown Knows", this track defines the sound for the rest of the album.

This album is Voivod's first greatest breakthrough (Killing Technology was a masterpiece as well but it wasn't as unique as this album), and I truly believe it is essential to any tech/extreme metal album collection.

Oh and in case you're wondering: It has no growls. So if you're a 70s prog and and enjoy metal, you can try this album (and the rest of Voivod's discography) with no problem.
