Strapping Young Lad – “Detox” PV & Live

“Detox” is taken from “City” (1997) , 2nd stdio album of the extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad.

Strapping Young Lad was formed by Devin Townsend in Vancouver in 1994. By 1997, three permanent members joined; Jed Simon on guitar, Byron Stroud on bass, and Gene Hoglan on drums.

SYL’s music is mixed with many kinds of metal music, for example death metal, thrash metal, black metal, progressive metal and industrial metal, and characterized by very technical and heavy guitar phrases and wide-range vocalization of Devin Townsend. Especially all of us are surprised at amazing drum play of Gene Hoglan (ex-Death).

I’ve Got A Feeling
With The Wrong People
And I Can’t Control My Thoughts

I Wish That I Could Sleep
And Just Get This Over With
…This Is Only High School Bullshit…

I Just Want To Feel

I Was Warned
Absolutely Numb
No Good Around People
Everyone Knows And Watches Me

How Did I Get Here Tonight?
What Am I Doing Here?
How Did I Reach This STATE?
How Did I Lose My Sight?

I’m Lost … I’m FREAKING
And Everybody Knows … Everyone’s Watching

…So Here’s All My Hopes And Aspirations
Nothing But Puke
God I’M So Lonely…

I Just Want To Feel
