Katorz is the eleventh studio album and fourteenth release overall by the Canadian heavy metal band Voivod, released on July 25, 2006. The name of the album is a phonetic spelling of "quatorze", the French word for fourteen. Demos for the album had been made, but before the band could properly begin recording it guitarist Denis D'Amour died on August 25, 2005 due to colon cancer. The guitar and bass tracks for Katorz had been recorded by D'Amour and bassist Jason Newsted on D'Amour's Mac at Newsted's house in California. After D'Amour's death, Langevin and Bélanger recorded their drum and vocal tracks, respectively, to be added to those existing tracks. The song, "The X-Stream", is included in the videogame Guitar Hero II.
