Their musical style has changed several times since the band`s origin in the early 1980s. Starting out as a speed metal band, Voivod have added a mix of progressive metal and thrash metal to create their own unique metal style, and they are credited as one of the `big four` Canadian thrash metal bands, along with Sacrifice, Razor, and Annihilator.They are considered by many as one of the most influential metal bands from the `80s, influencing and gaining praise from multiple bands and across numerous genres.Since its inception in 1982, Voivod have released thirteen studio albums, as well as one EP, one live album, two compilations, seven demos and one DVD featuring a live concert. The band found mainstream success in the late 1980s with their fifth studio album Nothingface (1989), which is Voivod`s only album to enter the Billboard 200 charts, peaking at number 114. Voivod`s most recent studio album, Target Earth, was released in 2013.
