With self-quarantine and social distancing in effect, many of us to have more time on our hands. Deerhoof’s Greg Saunier has put that to creative use by covering Angel Rat, the 1991 album by Canadian thrash metal greats Voivod, in full, acoustically. “Just in time for lockdown,” writes Greg, continuing, “Because of the extreme beauty and of its construction, I’ve been thinking since it came out that somebody should try a simple acoustic cover of the entire album," says Greg. "Now that the themes in the lyrics seem even more touchingly relevant in March 2020 than they were in 1991, I decided that the person to try it was me!”

Listen to that, along with Voivod's original album, below.
