VOIVOD Michel ‘Away’ Langevin: “I’m re­ally, re­ally, re­ally proud. As I men­tioned on stage, we don’t re­ally get awards. We’re still seen as very un­der­ground, al­though maybe in­flu­en­tial. But to win this is mind‑blow­ing. In the early days it was stuff like Van der Graaf, King Crim­son, Rush… Pro­gres­sive rock was huge in Que­bec. Voivod be­came a prog rock band over the course of a few years, and we have bands like Mastodon and Meshug­gah now telling us how we in­flu­enced them, which is great.”
