Lambgoat announced some turmoil in the Voivod camp, as the founders of true sci-fi metal have announced the departure of bass player Jean-Yves Thériault, aka Blacky, who has quit the band for the second time.It’s a real drag since I was impressed the group had come up with a line-up I could actually get behind without avant-garde guitar metal legend Piggy (R.I.P.). Well, maybe some fresh blood will do ‘em good or Newsted will make time to be a studio member again, hopefully.

Voivod has issued the following statement:

“It saddens us to announce that Voivod will no longer be performing live with Blacky. Jean-Yves has decided to leave the band for his own personal reasons. We wish him all the best. Voivod will carry on.”
