Louis-Paul Gauvreau Voted Off The Voice: Québec
Well, this blows. The man who stole our hearts by auditioning for The Voice: Québec with Necrophagist’s “Stabwound” and continuing to advance with Incandescence’s “L’abîme du rêve,” has been voted off following a killer performance of Nine Inch Nails’ “Hurt.” You can watch some video of the performance below.
To be realistic, Gauvreau probably wasn’t going to win the competition anyway because (insertgenericmainstreammediarip), but man did he give it a good run. I don’t think anyone in the audience, nor any metalhead, ever thought that you could get on national TV doing death growls, and there’s a certain poetic beauty to Gauvreau proving us all wrong.
If you like Louis’ vocals, you can check out his band, The Unconscious Mind, who are pretty fucking good and also offer the track below as a free download from their Bandcamp.
If you’re feeling nostalgic, here’s the audition that started it all:
