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.

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.
