Michael Away Langevin

Michel "Away" Langevin (born May 30, 1963) is a founding member and drummer for the Canadian heavy metal band Voivod. He has been a constant member of the band since its formation in 1982. Langevin is credited with the creation of the mythology of the post-apocalyptic vampire lord Voivod, about which the band originally coalesced, and is largely responsible for its continuing science fictionthemes.Langevin is also a well established graphic design artist. He has created all of Voivod's artwork, as well as the artwork for the Probot album. Langevin has also cowritten songs for J. G. Thirlwell's Steroid Maximus and drummed on Men Without Hats' Sideways (1991). In 2007, Michel Langevin and fellow legends of Canadian metal Pat Gordon (Ghoulunatics), Marc Vaillancourt (B.A.R.F.) and Philippe Mius D'Entremont (Maruka) founded Les Ékorchés, an acoustic hardcore/thrash metal band. On February 27, 2007 their first album entitled Les Ékorchés was released. All of the tracks are in French, which apparently is a first for Michel who has been playing songs in English since 1982.
