Voivod - The Wake. Definitely their best in a long time. Better than Target Earth, maybe better than Outer Limits. Snake is sounding pretty good, especially when he's shouting, although his clean voice is still the weakest link in Voivod. Mongrain is a riffing machine, but I wish his arrangement were a little more chaotic, to truly capture the Piggy feeling of old. The guitar tone is a little toothless as well, but the production in general is appealingly warm. I dig it.
Definitely their best since The Outer Limits. I'm going to assume the guitar tone has something to do with him using Fractal?
Stargazer - A Merging to the Boundless. Completing my Stargazer collection. Cool band, but they don't thrill me the way they do some.
I guess you are talking about me? :) I'm certainly the biggest fan on this board. Definitely looking forward to the new tune in December.
Confessor - Condemned. A random pick. Worth listening to for the drumming alone.
