Steve Vai feat. Devin Townsend – “Here & Now” Live in 1993

This song changed my music life…

This live footage was filmed by an audience at “Sex & Religion Tour” live on 16 October, 1993 in New York. The sounds and pictures aren’t good enough, but this bootleg is really precious for funs of Steve Vai and Devin Townsend. We can see young and fresh singing of Devin Townsend at the earliest period of his music career.

Strapping Young Lad - Zen PV 0

Strapping Young Lad – “Zen” PV & Making of “Alien”

“Zen” is taken from Strapping Young Lad’s 4th studio album “Alien” (HevyDevy, Century Media, 2005).

“Alien” is one of the best extreme metal albums, distinguished for its progressive approach and philosophical lyrics.

This song title “Zen” is obviously derived from Zen (Chinese character is 禅), which is the maditation form of Buddhism. We can achieve our mindfulness through constant training of Zen. In this song, I guess Devin expresses his thought about this maditation style in order to show the way to our better life and feeling.

Devin Townsend - Vampira PV 0

The Devin Townsend Band – “Vampira” PV

“Vampira” is taken from Devin Townsend Band’s studio album “Synchestra” (2006).

This song is really impressive and interesting because of its variety of musical styles. We can see the influences from folk music, especially polka. In this song and music video, there is a lot of humors flown from Devin. He isn’t only great musician but also talented entertainer. Definitely, others cannot create such a creative music.

Strapping Young Lad – “Love?” live & PV

The extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad performed their song “Love” at ‘The Sounds of The Underground Tour‘ in 2005.

The joke of Devin Townsend with ‘his friend’ make us laugh before their performance, but they suddenly throw us into their heavy, progressive and aggressive metal sound.
