From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Voivod is a Canadian heavy metal band from Jonquière, Québec. Their musical style has changed several times since the band's origin in the early 1980s. Starting out as a speed metal band, Voivod have added a mix of progressive metal and thrash metal to create their own unique metal style.

Jun 28, 2015: Update on Joni's health
Leslie Morris, Joni's conservator, has approved the following statement to be made through "Joni did in fact suffer an aneurysm. However, details that have emerged in the past few days are mostly speculative. The truth is that Joni is speaking, and she's speaking well. She is not walking yet, but she will be in the near future as she is undergoing daily therapies. She is resting comfortably in her own home and she's getting better each day. A full recovery is expected." You may leave your well wishes for Joni at

The USA is like Canada's macho older brother, who goes out and makes waves and makes a fool of himself and doesn't care, while Canada is the sensible nerdy younger brother who both looks up to USA and facepalms at his antics. And he's secretly a little jealous and wishes he had that kind of confidence. Sometimes the two brothers get in heated arguments with even a little shoving, but in the end they give each other a big hug and nothing will come between them.
