Voivod Drop New Single “Condemned To The Gallows”
Voivod are back with a new single, “Condemned To The Gallows” from their forthcoming album Morgöth Tales.
This record will celebrate the band’s impressive 40 years as a band and will function as their anniversary record. Morgöth Tales is out July 21 via Century Media Records.
To be even more specific, the song is officially titled “Condemned To The Gallows (2023 Version),” as the original version was the band’s first song ever released. It initially appeared on the Metal Massacre V compilation album in 1984.
VOIVOD vocalist Denis “Snake” Bélanger says about the track:
“The Morgöth Tales album starts where it all began. ‘Condemned To The Gallows’ was the first song ever recorded in a studio. I recall being shocked, hearing my voice for the first time, and I was a bit intimidated. I had joined the band only a few months prior to that, and I didn’t know how to sing or even if was capable of doing the job. So I jumped in, and this 40-year adventure was about to begin. Revisiting this song was a real trip. Going back in time when we were young and wild, recapturing that same fury inside that led us up to now, made me realize that the spirit never gets old. Thanks to Mom, who kept well-preserved, the only lyrics sheet existing on the surface of this planet, with my smudged left handed writing. Otherwise we would have been screwed.”
