Nothingface is the fifth studio album by Canadian heavy metal band Voivod. It was released by Mechanic/MCA Records on October 13, 1989. The album marked a change for the band, expanding their music and exploring more progressive sounds. Several riffs are heavily influenced by Igor Stravinsky's "The Rite of Spring", specifically the centre section of "Pre-Ignition".

Nothingface was Voivod's most successful album to date, and their only album to enter the Billboard 200 charts, where it peaked at number 114. A music video made for the album's third track, a cover of Pink Floyd's "Astronomy Domine", received airplay on MTV's Headbangers Ball.

In 2005, Nothingface was ranked number 350 in Rock Hard magazine's book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time. Loudwire named the album at number 23 in their list "Top 25 Progressive Metal Albums of All Time".
