Voivod are a Canadian heavy metal band from Quebec that formed in 1983. They started out as a speed metal band, while adding a mix of progressive and thrash metal to create their own unique style. They were one of the first thrash bands from Canada to receive international acclaim. The band have released eleven studio albums and a number of EPs, live albums, demos and DVDs. The band is still touring and are set to release a new album in 2017.

Highly influential Canadian prog. metal quartet continue to hone their distinctive blend of experimental speed-infused sci-fi to great effect on album number four. This definitive issue of Voivod's fourth album is a must-have item for any fan of this unique and ground-breaking Progressive Metal band. The 2CD/DVD Set vividly captures the period surrounding this album, a work where the band's sound and concept come together in perfect union, and where the transition from thrash metal into something altogether more unique, was finally made.

Dimension Hatross saw the band use a concept as a motivation for the album, with the band saying Dimension Hatross is an incredible tale of the Voivod character Korgull being immersed in a society of totalitarian rule where the citizens are brainwashed and forced to lose all individuality”



Along with a previously unreleased complete show - the 'Spectrum '88 concert - 'A Flawless Structure? (Recorded Live in Montreal, December 21st 1988)' - the set also includes concerts performed by the band in the US. It was released on Noise Records in 1988.
