I managed to pick this up when it was brand new, first released for the rediculously low price of $11.99 factory sealed from a large chain store. I have owned this album on cassette for years, and boy did I snag this at the right time. This box set is awesome, and one heck of a value. The difinitive War and Pain set.
Disc one contains the 9 tracks of war and pain-remasted and sound just as crisp and raw/fresh as the day they were layed down.
Then-Voivod added live songs from their first show ANACHRONISM-tracks 10,11,12.
Next, they added the Metal Massacre 5 sessions for track 13, 14, and 15.
Disc two: This is the prized Morgoth Invasion: Live Demo Sessions december 1984. 16 tracks of prime Voivod as they lauch into the premier canadian thrash metal band role.
Disc three-CD ROM enhanced CD: This was the disc I nearly wet myself over. I have always loved Enhanced CD’s. This has so much data on it, it’s tought to fit here, and I’m still discovering stuff on it. Here’s a brief rundown. It has the biography 1985, coments from 2003, lyrics, sound, Many many video clips (20 minutes or more at least, pics, art, wallpapers, and screensavers.
If you are a voivod fan, you must, and I repeat, you must get this album, It is silly if you didn’t. I would have easilly paid 20-25 dollars for this, but you don’t have to, so buy it ASAP!!!!!
I must assume that if your interested in Voivod’s, “War And Pain”, then you must know something about real heavy metal. Their debut album way back from 1984 is an undeniable classic. Early Voivod was something completely different, but if you were into bands like Slayer, Venom and Kill ‘em All era Metallica, You most likely would like Voivod. “War And Pain” is a brutal record. All the crazy riffs, the thundering bass, nuclear drumblasts and bloodcurdling vo-kills carry you into the land of the Voivod. A warrior vampire-lord with a lust for death. This album is all killer and no filler. But, don’t forget, there are 3 cd’s. The “War And Pain” album, a live demo recording from 1984, which, if you appreciate real history, you will not mind the sound of the live disc. In my opinion, it’s one of the heaviest things I’ve heard. And, a bonus disc for your computer which has a video, pics, art, lyrics and more. You cannot go wrong by buying the first album. Hardcore all the way! This 3 cd set is a good buy and I bet will be hard to find one day so get it while you can!
