EDITORS’ NOTES

Though they’ve taken on a new guitarist and bassist in recent years, Quebec’s eternal prog-thrash scientists still sound like no other band, and their twisted forward charge is unmistakable on this 2016 set. Voivod take an expedition into the high-altitude void in the fusion-leaning “Forever Mountain,” court the impending ghosts of autumn in the shiveringly pretty “Fall,” and survey refuse on the horizon in the metal hoedown “We Are Connected.” Then they close with the gleeful Hawkwind cover “Silver Machine,” joyriding a rocket to space.
