CŒUR ATOMIQUE's debut album called "Landscape of Emergency I ~", will be released on vinyl on July 10. Pre-order it now through The digital format is already available.

This album is the first part of the "Landscape Of Emergency" series of releases which address the silencing machine of ignorance of indifference.

"Landscape Of Emergency I ~" track listing:

01. Fail Safe
02. Calutron
03. Castle Bravo
04. The Waste
05. Berghof
06. Green Run

In a 2015 interview with Thrash Eaters, VOIVOD drummer Michel "Away" Langevin (a.k.a. Away) stated about Blacky's exit from the band: "Blacky didn't agree on how the band should be managed and all that, so we parted ways. And we didn't want the situation to be complicated. I mean, we could have phoned back Jason [Newsted, former METALLICA and VOIVOD bassist] and all that, but that's complicated; it's another set of issues. And we wanted to be able to give each other a call and say, 'Let's jam,' and go to the rehearsal space. So that's what [VOIVOD guitarist guitarist Daniel 'Chewy" Mongrain] told me. He said, 'I know somebody, and I'm sure, sure, sure, sure, sure he can do it.' And I'm, like, 'Great! Let's jam.' And that was it."

Blacky was replaced in VOIVOD by Dominic "Rocky" Laroche.
