The Outer Limits is the eighth album release, and the seventh studio album, by Canadian heavy metal band Voivod. It was issued via Mechanic/MCA Records in 1993, following the compilation release of The Best of Voivod. The Outer Limits was the final album to feature vocalist Denis Bélanger until his 2002 return.
The Outer Limits was also Voivod's first album without original bassist Blacky, who had left the band after the release of the critically acclaimed but commercially unsuccessful 1991 album Angel Rat. Uncomfortable with the idea of bringing in an immediate replacement for Blacky, Voivod opted to have session musician Pierre St-Jean play bass guitar for the recording of the album.
When originally issued, the CD came with a miniature pair of 3D glasses in order to view the booklet art correctly.
