Devin is a badass, and he's funny as hell. SYL is one of the best bands out there these days.

Holy shit. He was playing like 3 sets that sounds fantastic.

makes me think of the time I missed seeing Sigh with Zimmer Hole cause my mom wouldn't let me go to the venue ;-;


No he played 2 sets, DT doesn't play in Zimmers Hole, The Devin Townsend Band were the opening act followed by Zimmers Hole and then SYL headlined. Byron Stroud and Gene Hoglan played twice that night too in Zimmers and SYL.

Ok that was my mix up. I knew some of the SYL guys were in Zimmer

Another great gig I went to was when The Devin Townsend Band played back in 2001 and they had Godflesh in support, although back then it was just Devin Townsend not the DTB. I was at the time Devin released the Terria album and Godflesh had released their final album Hymns or they were about to, it was....soooo long ago.

It has to be two to showcase both of Devin's sides. Get Strapping Young Lad - City and Devin Townsend - Ocean Machine. Ziltoid is good and all but I feel like it's easily his weakest effort next to Physicist, Synchestra, and the ambient albums.

All Ziltoid does is mix elements of SYL and Devin Townsend's solo stuff with humor. It isn't a bad album at all, really, it's just that you can experience much more of his talent through other albums.

ok, im a new listener to Devin, but he is very....eccentric. i know that wont translate to german very well, but the best i can say is he is a very smart guy, can play beautifully, and is just kinda crazy.
i was recommended the album, Ziltoid, the Omniscient. That is a very good album. About an alien trying to search for earth's "ultimate cup of coffee"
another good album i have listened to is Ki. Kinda soft and ambient. i really dont know how to describe it either

i got ALL of his albums. he was in a band called Strapping Young Lad. I Downladed that work as well, though i havent listened to it. I have been told that all of his work is good, but i have like his solo work. His solo work was just called "Devin Townsed". And he recently started a 4 album project to which he is 2 albums into, called "Devin townsend Project". Those albums are Ki, and Addicted. I reccomend those


make more sense?
Devin Townsend macht spass.....only german phrase i rememeber

Forget Ziltoid, get Ocean Machine, Infinity, and Terria from his solo work and get City from Strapping Young Lad. Honestly it's easily his best work. SOme other good albums are Ki from Devin Townsend Project and Accelerated Evolution from The Devin Townsend Band. Ziltoid is good but it's just a weak mix of all of his other work. Think of it as a greatest hits type thing except it's all new material.

Once you listen to it like 100000000 times like I did, the novelty wears off and you see that it's still good, just not nearly the best thing he's done.
