VOIVOD was honored in the “Metal/Hard Music Album Of The Year” category at this year’s Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent of the Grammy Awards). The 48th annual Juno Gala Dinner And Awards was co-hosted by BILLY TALENT‘s Ben Kowalewicz and CBC‘s Julie Nesrallah on Saturday evening, and 36 awards were handed out.
