2003 : 11 "The Multiverse" by Voivod

"What really matters is the anti-matter," affirms Voivod on 2003's "The Multiverse." These are the same dudes who, when not singing about Angel/Rats, chronicle life in a hyper-cube. It's about escape in the obvious way that escape is always about where you came from. The guys in Voivod are Canadian (like Alpha Flight—yeah, that's how I roll, this ain't no DC thing...), and could doubtless hear the Bush era call to harm. Space time warped. Orwell channelled. The Multiverse. "It is now reality / Never say Never." Still, working in one's basement, somehow getting it right, has yet to get us to the other side of racist imperial policies. Back to work!
