VOIVOD’s drummer Michel “Away” Langevin comments as follows: “And last but not least, ‘Overreaction’, the new single/video from our brand new release ‘Lost Machine - Live’. This old classic from ‘Killing Technology’ has been on the setlist since 1987. It really gets the crowd going, and us too! Once again, splendid video direction by Felipe Belalcazar and thanks to Jaan Silmberg for animating my artwork. Enjoy our new live album!!“
