No need to double check the web address bar. Yes, this is Decibel discussing an old Devin Townsend joint. Physicist proves that for every album there is a reaction. Here’s ours.

Rolling THAC0: A Normal Conversation With Devin Townsend

November 21, 2016

Devin Townsend needs no introduction. That being said, for sake of formality, we’re introducing Canada’s most inspiring musician as Canada’s most inspiring (and slightly off-kilter) musician. Townsend should’ve never created his newest album, Transcendence. He was already on to something else–namely Casualties of Cool–but then something ordered his brain in Townsend’s general disorder.

Devin Townsend Interview: Part 3

January 23, 2015

Over the past two weeks, we gave Mr. Townsend some blog space to explain his straining relationship with new metal and the direction he envisions for himself.  Today, we have the opportunity to find out which professional avenues the pop-progger absolutely refuses to follow.  Townsend also laments the problems of a repetitive lifestyle and the copy-of-a-copy types…

Being Devin Townsend: Q&A with Ziltoid’s old man

October 28, 2011

Devin Townsend is on the phone and he’s freaking out because he’s booked four shows in London; over consecutive nights he’ll be playing Ki, Addicted, Deconstruction and Ghost in their entirety, and it’s a big fucking deal. It’s stressful. He’s also headlining Leeds, UK metal-fest Damnation, which he promises to go heavy on with the…
