Devin Townsend Project

Sixteen years into a recording career that began with an appearance on Steve Vai’s 1993 album Sex and Religion, the Vancouver-born, eccentric, prolific metal performer and producer Devin Townsend revealed details of the Devin Townsend Project. Following the brief hiatus that came after his 2007 rock opera, Ziltoid the Omniscient, a newly shaven-headed and teetotaling Townsend announced an intended four-album sequence under this moniker, with the primary goal being that he wanted to make music without the assistance of drugs. Townsend’s vision also revealed an ambition to record with different musicians on each album, in order to keep things fresh. May 2009’s Ki was one of the more restrained releases in his canon, particularly in comparison to his strident Strapping Young Lad material. It touched on laid-back funk and ambient rock -- as displayed on the tranquil “Ain’t Never Gonna Win” -- and featured Duris Maxwell, who had previously drummed with Motown act Bobby Taylor and Vancouvers in the ‘60s and Jefferson Airplane in the ‘70s.

Later that year, critics found the Project’s follow-up album, Addicted, to be reassuringly heavy, and it became one of Townsend’s most revered releases. It inventively combined crushing guitars with techno beats and prominently featured the voice of ex-Gathering frontwoman Anneke van Giersbergen. In June 2011, both the third and fourth Devin Townsend Project albums were issued on the same day. While Deconstruction continued with Townsend’s traditionally heavy approach and featured a wealth of guest vocalists, Ghost, with its soft, Tangerine Dream-aping soundscapes, was its sonic opposite. The following year brought Epicloud, an unexpected fifth release under the Devin Townsend Project name that brought Giersbergen back into the fold to repeat the crucial role that she played on Addicted. ~ James Wilkinson

@alabastervi l l i s 0 If you're referring to the By A Thread concert when talking about Anneka lipsyncing, Devin actually addressed that in the DVD commentary. She was singing (along with a bunch of pre-recorded vocal lines due to the intense amount of layering Dev does), but due to her proximity to one of RVP's cymbals he had to cut her down significantl y in the final mix to prevent the cymbal from overwhelming the mix. You can find the Addicted commentary where he talks about it on Youtube.

yes filler. as i said he is beyond talented but some of his syl songs are indistinct there are some songs that lack and outline or form and i have to ding him alil because the blonde women who sings on stage with him isnt singing live, she does a horrible job lip syncing while devin is performing live. kudos to him but sack her if she cant dance and really sing live

Filler? No way. More like trademark vocals. Several of his songs have lyrics that he uses in many songs. It's Devin's thing. No other band does that. May he live forever.

Four Retinal Circus songs in one listening session? This is a NIN station not Heavy Devy. I still really like SYL.

They need to add Ki here! Forgot if they put it under any of his other projects, but its part of DTP specifically . Also, excited for Epicloud :)

I have never heard this music before and I cannot understand why. 10 out of 10 rating in my book.

Amazing ability to write themes, and one of the most powerful voices since Dio. His lyrics often fall short, but that doesn't stop me from devouring everything he does. Glad he lost the skullet.

So underrated

DT is the best musician with a dedication to following through his creativity with refined precision that others can only dream of attaining.
