Voivod: premiere video for Target Earth on Metal Injection
Canadian progressive metal pioneers VOIVOD have completed the video for their Century Media debut album, Target Earth. The video, created by Italian filmmaker and multimedia artist, Nicola Piovesan, was created with 3D Motion Graphics using the visions and artwork of VOIVOD drummer, Away (Michel Langevin).
Check out the video here.
Here is what Away had to say upon completion of the video, "I met Nicola Piovesan at the Voivod/Unkind show in Helsinki on October 31, 2012. We had a discussion about my 3D Graphics for the album Negatron and Nicola mentioned the possibility of him doing a 3D Motion video for our new album Target Earth. After viewing his fantastic video for THE CORE by the band ON'OFF'MAN, we knew he was the right person to capture the cyber world of Voivod. To us, the result is simply spectacular!"
