Which technically skilled scifi thrash band did you love more in the older days?
Which band wins out for albums that you still play consistently today?

Voivod pretty easily. Coroner were a band I liked but never really warmed to somehow... on the other hand Voivod were awesome from 1984 til 1993 taking me on a journey from total garage thrash to Indie rock via Pink Floyd. Plus the artwork was great too.

Coroner, well... oddly enough I'm reading the book about Noise records at the moment and it's already made me listen to Helloween again, so maybe when I get to Coroner it will inspire me to dig those out as well. Punishment for Decadence was always my favourite although Grin is quite cool in it's own little way.

Voivod. I've never been pushed about Coroner and even though I think the first few Voivod albums are nigh on unlistenable, Nothingface and Phobos are two of my favourite metal albums.

As much as I love Voivod, I came upon Coroner first and quite early in my metal experience, and they were always a big part of my listening. I've just always loved Tommy T. Baron's style, and how the band managed to make some complex ideas come across as really simple, both in their playing and in their arrangement.

I suppose you could say the same with Voivod in that regard as well - Piggy's guitar and riffing style was always very unique and helped define their sound - but in the end familiarity has got the best of me.

I still listen to both of them these days at any rate.

It's a very close call but I'm gonna go with Coroner simply because their peaks were a touch higher in my opinion. "Mental Vortex" is my favourite record from either band.

I think Coroner benefits from their shorter career span as well. They really didn’t release anything sub-par (depending on how you feel about their groovier, industrial-tinged Grin from 1993). Not that Voivod had any stinkers, but the variance in quality fluctuates, especially once you get past their classic 80s and early-90s material. The last decade they feel a bit like a legacy act (that sounds more disparaging then intended, but once they lost Piggy, they lost a big part of their identity).

Voivod by a light year. Fuck Coroner.
