Negatron is the ninth studio album by Canadian heavy metal band Voivod, released on November 21, 1995 by Mausoleum Records. It is also the first studio album not to feature original singer Denis "Snake" Bélanger, who temporarily left the band in 1994, with Eric Forrest assuming vocal duties for the recording.

The album also features J. G. Thirlwell as guest vocalist on the final track.

Album information[edit]

The album is considered a departure from Voivod's previous progressive and thrash metal style, with the band adopting a new industrial-oriented groove metal sound.[1]

The CD release is notable for including multimedia tracks in CD-ROM format, which was a novelty back then.
