Head Wound City Biography - Head Wound City Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands

Description

Respected, influential, sometimes difficult, usually godlike, & always amazing. The most creative band to master the metal form, their thirteenth album includes founding members Denis D’Amour, Michel Langevin, Denis Belanger, & former Metallica bassist Jason Newsted. Digipak. Chophouse/Surfdog. 2003. With their 13th full-length album, Voivod welcome back original vocalist Denis Belanger, and bring on board none other than Jason Newsted of Metallica fame. They’re clearly enjoying a fresh lease on life. Indeed, here they recall the rough and punky days of the new wave of British heavy metal. With ”Rebel Robot,” though, they rediscover their old rhythm-shifting form. ”The Multiverse”’s echoing, head-spinning intro evolves into a complex monster, as Belanger howls about the incomprehensible enormity of everything. He rises to the occasion yet again during the discordant but melodic ”Divine Sun” and the churning, shape-shifting ”Invisible Planet.” Occasionally, they drift into more conventional heavy rock, and one wishes they’d included some sonic experimentation along the lines of the grim and freaky extra track that follows the apparent closer ”We Carry On.” Nevertheless, their new-found exuberance is a joy to witness and, hopefully, the presence of Newsted will help them find them an overdue large following. –Dominic Wills

  • the experience of the members emmanates from their sound and Whitney’s voice lend in some texture to the sound.

    It’s a beautiful blend of all these guys talents that come welded together from The Locust and The Blood Brothers and gives you a lot of respect for their talent in sound and lyrics.

  • This album is great. This guy a few spaces above me who bothered to write a 3 paragraph review of [...] knows nothing. Yes, this is thrash. Let’s look at the small timeline: Mark McCoy, who is in one of the best thrash bands ever that being Charles Bronson, later moved on to Holy Molar and The Oath, which played shows or were friends with The Locust. The drummer of The locust was also in Holy Molar. There are people in The Locust that are in Head Wound City. In other words, YES, HWC is Thrash, but not “thrash-metal” like everyone is used to hearing, they are “thrashcore” as we call it. So there you have it. All the songs on HWC’s album are awesome, they are really fast, there’s plenty of screaming, and it’s just full of wonderful amounts of energy. Get this if you like The Oath, Charles Bronson, The Locust, Holy Molar, and anything else related to thrash/technopunk. I give it a 5 because I enjoy HWC and they rule. End of story.
