    Just got myself a copy of the new album from Devin Townsend. This new project he has entitled 'Terria'. What can I say about the album apart from FANTASTIC. This guy is my favorite artist behind VH, so at least I have some new music to look forward to.

    The album has taken on a slightly different approach from his previous albums, but it still has that Devin MAJESTIC sound. If I was to compare this album to his previous work, I would say this album is a cross between the 'Infinity' album and Pink Floyd's 'The Wall'. Favorite track for me at the moment is 'Canada'.

    With the average song length about 7 minutes, this album isn't for Journey fans. For ya bong heads out there, this is the kind of album to relax on the sofa to and let the music fill your head.

    Are you talking about the same Devin Townsend that sang for Vai's Sex and Religion?

    I have not seen a Devin Townsend anything since Vai's Sex and Religion. What is his music like? Guitar based or what is it? He sang his ass of on Vai's album!!!!! I do not like Pink Floyd...too boring for me. I need some adrenaline pumping music to get me going everyday! Please fill me in on what this guy offers! [img]smilies/cool.gif[/img]
    Just go for it!

    I'm not the most qualified to answer, as I just recently started listening to his stuff, but it seems to me that he has :widerange: the songs I've heard are all very different.

    Some of Devin's music is definitely for you. Like homeunit said, his Strapping Young Lad music is tear your head clean off stuff. All of his music has heavy guitars, tuned to C with a lush keyboard sound as well. He has a kick ass heavy drummer as well.

    His Ocean Machine album is probably his best work, a great hard rock album. The new album is still heavy but more diverse and slower. I would suggest you to buy the SYL album 'City' or the 'Physicist' album. The song 'Detox' from 'City' will definitely get you going in the morning!

    I had read about him when he did the Vai project, and when I heard THAT, I hated it. Recently, I checked out some of his other work, and while I don't go for the death metal stuff, some of his other personas have been rather interesting. Here's a kid who seems to be making music for all the right reasons, and is lucky to be able to continue to do so without mass appeal.

    While certainly not one of my favorites, I give the guy some respect! [img]smilies/smile.gif[/img]
