Strapping Young Lad

Having been known for running his own label Hevy Devy Records, helping out with such acts as Steve Vai and Front Line Assembly and fronting two other bands (Infinity and Ocean Machine), Strapping Young Lad frontman Devin Townsend seems to keep himself busy with the rock & roll lifestyle. With the later being his full-time gig since 1994, Strapping Young Lad not only features Townsend on vocals and guitar, but also with the accompaniment of Jed Simon (guitar), bassist Byron Stroud, and Gene Hoglan on drums. After a few gigs in their home base of Vancouver, Canada, a demo surfaced immediately grasping the attention from Century Media Records a year later. With their 1995 debut of Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing, it clearly shows that just because you play in a metal band, doesn't necessarily mean that you can't have a sense of humor. After some two years of touring with such acts as Entombed, Obituary, Crowbar, and Stuck Mojo, Strapping Young Lads' second album, City, came out in 1997, followed by even more touring across the globe and a stint on the Australian continent -- the first for any Century Media band. The live EP No Sleep 'Till Bedtime documents their shows down under and was released in 1998. ~ Mike DaRonco, Rovi

"Oh! My! F**k! Ing! God!" SYL is the best. Alien and The New Black are my favorite albums.
I want to be reincarnated with devin's voice.
sometimes i have a hard time keeping up with all his works.
Whacca whaaca!

Wall of sound definitely says it right.
A bit behind on this bio, me says...
mbrsone
someone needs to re-do the bio.....
Greatest band ever! My world wouldn't be the same without Devin.
I'm a fan boy of almost nothing...ex c e p t Devin Townsend. I'm actually somewhat disappointed that SYL never quite topped City. Though I think a couple Devy solo (or DTB) albums have.
topfuelprod
been listening to this incredible music since inception and it still makes me sweat ... heaviest metal album of all time ??
Gene, my love, serenade me with your omnipresent drums...
It isn't possible for you f**kers to get any better. <3
Still blasting their City album all these years later
another one of those bands that are better live than in studio. and thats saying something considering the studio work is amazing! Even their joke-ish songs are just godly! devin and gene are gods!

Dev has grown and evolved as a musician and as a father, doesn't need drugs to be a genius writing music. Deconstructi o n is gonna be heavier that anything he's ever done to date. I cant wait

Dev and his music just isn't the same without the drugs, and he realized that too. SYL was some of the craziest s**t I have ever seen and heard live. Hearing his music post SYL is a night and day difference now. Check it out.
The Best Music
Devin is amazing. Cynic is amazing. Between the Buried and Me is amazing (and not metalcore).
I think City is their best album, but Alien isn't bad, a close second
aggies2016
amazing band STYL FOREVER AND DEVIN TOWNSEND FOREVER
the more i listen to it the more i like it.
Devin is finally on tour again. F**k Between the Buried and Me (f**king metalcore band) but Cynic and Devin Townsend are worth the price of a ticket. Any fan should be out there and LEAVE when BTAM comes on...show them which bands people are there to see.
They really need "Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing" on here if for nothing else than the song S.Y.L. It's the most self-deproca t i n g and angry songin human history.
While they're at it they should get the album S.Y.L. (which doesn't have the song by that name). It doesn't sound much like their other albums but it's awesome.
This s**t is f**king insane. Awesome
SYL is f**king awesome live....so much energy...the y f**king rule
haha its cause there IS no music similar to this. its devin townsend!! f**king rules. SYL's best album is city
I missed my chance to see them. Shame shame.
this is the most awsome song in the history of metal.
I wish pandora would actually find me some similar music to this... It's brutal.
