Closing in on 40 eventful years of existence, Canadian sci-fi metal innovators VOIVOD are pleased to announce the release of the “Ultraman – EP” on November 4th , 2022 via Century Media Records, complimenting their latest “Synchro Anarchy” album release in perfect timing for their upcoming touring activities as special guest to Opeth across Europe.
VOIVOD’s drummer Michel “Away Langevin” commented about the EP as follows: “As a kid I often dreamed of finding a Beta Capsule, so I could transform into Ultraman, keep the city from being destroyed by a giant fire spitting monster, and hopefully save Akiko Fuji in the process. I’m pretty sure many people had the same dream…we sure did in Voïvod, and that’s why we decided to cover the main and battle TV themes for this EP. The recordings were done during the ‘Synchro Anarchy’ sessions and Chewy sings the Japanese parts! For the B side, we tracked down the lost encore from the 35th anniversary show, Return To Morgöth – Live 2018. Enjoy!”
VOIVOD’s “Ultraman – EP” will be released in perfect timing for the band’s return to European stages as special guests for Swedish progressive metal/rock group Opeth on their upcoming “Evolution XXX” European tour in November 2022…
