Metal Circus has come!!
This live footage is an official promotion video taken from Devin Townsend Project’s live DVD/Blue-ray “Retinal Circus” (HevyDevy, 2013). “Retinal Circus”‘s audio materials are also available.
This excellent performance was held and recorded at Roundhouse, London, on October 27 in 2012, when Devin Townsend performed a special one-night-only concert celebrating and covering his 20-year musical career.
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.
More extreme than extreme, Devin “HevyDevy” Townsend is.
This aggressive performance was held at Download Festival on 9 Jun 2006.
“Wrong side” is taken from Strapping Young Lad’s 5th studio album “New Black” (Century Media, 2005).
“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.
“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.
“Still My Bleeding Heart” is taken from Steve Vai’s album “Sex & Religion” (1993).
This album features Devin Townsend on vocal, T.M. Stevens on bass and Terry Bozzio on drums. The singing of young Devin Townsend is absolutely impressive. Once hearing his voice, we can realise his innate ability.
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.
“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.
