Devin Townsend Comments On Progress Of Three New Albums

Vancouver, Canada metal mastermind Devin Townsend has posted the following update online through his official forum.

"I found as a reaction to the complications of decon and the sheer bulk of work thats been going on (seriously, it’s insane) my writing ended up going in 3 ways recently:

1) A very commercial sounding (for the most part) but beautiful and melencholic album full of easy to digest dev songs…Epicloud. I don’t know why it came out, but it did, so I’m going to get it out of my system.

2) Casualties of Cool: a duo with myself and Che (ki)… it sounds like haunted Johnny cash songs. late night music, completely isolated sounding and different than anything I’ve done. Che sings most of the leads, and it’s probably the truest reflection of who I am in life at this point. Trying to release it in tandem with Epicloud.

3) Z2 epic epic epic, complicated, musical, sci-fi, immense expense, the goal of it all I suppose."

Ziltoid is tied with Alien for my favourite Devy album, could not be looking forward to Z2 any more! Epicloud also nice, hopefully in the vein of his earlier solo stuff but hey anything new is good.

I wish he'd just do another SYL album. But I can deal with this.

Easily one of the hardest working, practically over-productive people on the metal scene.
