  • If I were stranded on a desert island and could have only five metal albums, they would be, at least right now, “Beg To Differ” from Prong, Sepultra’s “Arise”, Exodus’ “Tempo Of The Damned”, Judas Priest’s “British Steel” and Voivod’s “Dimension Hatross.”
    This seminal industrial metal album was and is still too heavy and complex for many listeners and, as indicated in other reviews, far ahead of its time. Many fans love the lyrical content, with its odes to machine dominance, questions of sanity and all sorts of futuristic meanderings. What makes this CD great is the guitar work of Denis “Piggy” D’Amour.
    D’Amour is a jazz guitar fan who takes complex jazz theory and distorts the results and cranks it up to 11 and then combines it with the attack of metal. “Piggy” has melded atonal experimentation, jazz improvisation worthy of Miles Davis’ “Bitches Brew” with classic metal and the result is an industrial thrashing that has no equal. “Blacky”, the former bassist, provides distorted bass with melodic riffing to hold down the arrangements and keep them from tipping over the edge into total chaos.
    This album will continue to grow in stature as more generations discover its timelessness and groundbreaking expeditions into musical territory no metal band has ever explored before. It’s simply a must have for anybody who considers themselves cutting edge metal afficionados or just likes any music that dares to break the rules. In this case, “Dimension Hatross” not only breaks the rules of metal, it shatters them and renders them useless.
