Devin Townsend – Addicted

Hi Gang

Have you heard of Devin Townsend? If not, then you should really check him out. Most people who HAVE heard of him only know him as the singer on Steve Vai’s Sex and Religion album, but he then went on to create some of the best metal on the planet.

If you are into the heavier stuff then you should really check out his side project band call Strapping Young Lad! Yes, you read that right, f**king awful name but I think that was the point! The best album without a doubt from SYL is Alien.

For a taster, check this video.

However, he has also created X solo albums to date, which you can find at Amazon, but this week he released his latest of a 4 part series, called Addicted.

The sound of the guitars are amazing and a good mixture of clean and angst vocals. By the way, he used to use ESP but now he has got a deal with Peavey who have been making some very cool guitars for him, including a 7-string flying V. Check him out, he kicks ass!
