2007, 8 minutes

It's an honor for me to say the least to directed this video, since Voivod is my all time favorite band and that I'm inspired alot by the artworks from their drummer Away.

The former Voivod agent Maurice Richard asked me to produce this tribute for a screening 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 was part of "1982 – 2007: 25 ans Métal Québécois", a three-day festival celebrating 25 years of Quebec metal, on August 31 - September 2, 2007 at Club Soda. The video focus only on the 80s Voivod with the original line up since it was screened at the Quebec 80s Metal night. The tribute/induction was 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 was consisting 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.
