In order to launch the live release’s pre-order, you can check out a first single/video for the track “The Lost Machine”. The clip features audio recorded in Québec City (July 13, 2019), video filmed in Montréal (June 30, 2019) and material processed in Morgöth (2020). The video was directed and produced by Felipe Belalcazar of Mental Pictures.
VOIVOD drummer Michel “Away” Langevin commented: “Here it is at last, the first single and video from our upcoming release ‘Lost Machine – Live’. The footage used in this clip comes from a hometown show in Montreal in the summer of 2019, and the audio is from a show in Québec City two weeks later, where we recorded the entire live album. We were obviously excited to play in our province of Québec, in front of families and friends, as documented in this rendition of the song ‘The Lost Machine’. The video is directed by Felipe Belalcazar, who is also working on a VOIVOD documentary. I did the art on the road across the globe last year, and it was animated by Jaan Silmberg. More to come soon, enjoy!”
