In an article on ZWire, Strapping Young Lad bassist Byron Stroud talks about the band's new album, "Alien." Here are some excerpts from the article:
As it turns out, "Alien" is an exercise in opposite dynamics. There are crushingly ferocious tracks such as "Imperial" and "Skeksis," but there are softer moments found on "Two Weeks" and "Thalamus" that show the quartet is capable of more than just destruction.
"When it came to this record, we thought about what defines Strapping in our eyes and in other people's eyes, and it was more than just being a brutal metal band," Stroud said.
He paused for a moment when asked what led to such a major change of pace in songwriting.
"We realized we had ideas for nice melodies," he said, laughing.
