And although the band offers several strong compositions, it soon becomes apparent that Voivod had already peaked artistically on their three preceding albums. Perhaps the band's chemistry was knocked off balance by the defection of original bassist Jean-Yves Theriault after Angel Rat's completion. Present is the group's second Pink Floyd cover, the Roger Waters composition "The Nile Song" (they had covered "Astronomy Domine" earlier)
The Outer Limits' is arguably Voivod's most mature record, as well as being remarkably consistent throughout. Quite a bit more streamlined and to-the-point as much of the earlier work, this album is a natural development from 'Angel Rat', but really takes Voivod's staple themes of science fiction to greater depths. The album takes a while to warm up, and doesn't have quite the same jaw-dropping effect as 'Nothingface', but while less immediate, 'The Outer Limits' is one of the best prog metal albums to be released in the early '90s.
The Outer Limits is a music studio album recording by VOIVOD (Tech/Extreme Prog Metal/Progressive Rock) released in 1993 on cd, lp, vinyl and/or cassette. While it's not their final album, 'The Outer Limits' finalizes the natural and uninterrupted growth of Voivod, completing the most fascinating evolutionary string of metalworks since Black Sabbath's '70s output.
