VOIVOD tribute video
I'm currently working on a short tribute video for the ultimate metal band VOIVOD.
It's an honor for me to say the least to work on this project, since it's my all time favorite band and that I'm inspired alot by the artworks from their drummer Away.
It will be screened at the Club Soda (1225 St-Laurent, Montréal, QC, Canada) on saturday September 1st as part of the PIGGY's 'Quebec Metal Hall Of Fame' Induction.
The induction will take place as part of "1982 – 2007: 25 ans Métal Québécois", a three-day festival celebrating 25 years of Quebec metal, set to take place August 31 - September 2, 2007 at Club Soda. The tribute/induction will be presented in three parts:
1) Video produced by Syl Disjonk.
2) A few people, including Snake, will speak about Denis.
3) Musical medley arranged and performed by Blacky and guitarist Dan Mongrain (MARTYR). The medley will consist of excerpts from VOIVOD's five albums released during the '80s.
D'Amour died August 26, 2005 in a Montreal hospital from complications of advanced colon cancer.
Notice that on the same night the cult band from Quebec city Soothsayer will do their first concert in 17 years !! The night will be closed by none other than DBC !!
