The song Earth Day by them is AMAZING, the first few seconds sounds like it should coem from an epic end-of-the-world movie like War of the Worlds or something.

Earth Day is such a perfect example of his use of atmosphere. Another thing I really like about Dev is, even in his longest songs, he retains a feeling of familiarity throughout, the song never goes into a complete change, but a the same time he keeps it interesting. 'Deadhead' is the perfect example of that.

I was watching some SYL vids the other day, and just seeing Devin makes me want to marry him haha. He has the best ****ing lines on stage.

"The only bad thing about this wind ladies and gentlemen, is it is making the 16 individual strands of hair on my head go ****ing crazy!"

"You love us!? You really really love us....*crowd cheers* How unfortunate for your sence of taste. Oh, I think I just roasted ourselves. Well, anyway, why does no one want to come into the middle?! I mean, its so empty. Is that the space reserved for the people in the yellow shirts? *points at sercurity* Very nice gentlemen, very nice. Ok, shut up, we're gonna seranade you. Oh and nice sombero dude, full ****ing metal."
*starts playing Polyphony*

ZILTOID!

"I'll give you five earth minutes to bring me this universe's greatest cup of coffee. Black. Make it Perfect."

Ziltoid is awesome, as I expected.

^^Storm is on Accelerated Evolution.

And the soloing in Ziltoid Attaxx! are fucking insane.

Ziltoid is amazing, downloaded yesterday. Fav. tracks so far are Solar Winds, Ziltoid Attaxx!!!, and The Grey. Oh, and Storm is amazing, but Canada keeps it's place as my fav. DTB track, Storm coming in around third. Canada is an awesome song, just for that part around 3:00.
#61
"Ziltoid! AAAAAAARRRRGH! ZILTOOOIID! OOHH AWWW OOH ZILTOID!"
I love it already.

"You have no convinced mighty Ziltoid. I am so omniscient, if there were to be two omnisciences, I would be both!"

HAHAHAHAH!

Accelerated Evolution is my favorite out of the three I have so far from Devin. I need more, his solo work is genius.
#68
Is Ziltoid out yet? I torrented it awhile back and was wondering if I could buy it anywhere...

wow that sucks bad. but Devin is mid 30's? I thought he was atleast 40 judging from the skullet.

atleast he will continue to make music. SYL is one of my favorite bands sad to see them break up.

Frankly, I'm not too saddened by the breakup of SYL. I mean, everybody knows "The New Black" sucked balls.

2008 EDIT: I was very wrong. All the albums were awesome.

Now the breakup of DTB is kinda saddening.

^ TNB sucked balls? News to me. Sub par, for sure, but it was far from worthless. Not to mention, Synchestra was released as the DTB counterpart, and that was some his best work in his career thus far (in my opinion).
#74
I thought the last 3 tracks on The New Black was some of the best shit Dev has ever dedicated to CD. He's never made a bad album as far as I know.

Wow this thread is great, having only got into TDTB in the last few days i can officially say that its beyond awesome, everything about it is just so good. On the subject of SYL's breakup, although i would have loved to have seen them i always felt there was something slightly missing from SYL, luckily i have found that with TDTB

lol? I take it you didn't listen to it then? "The New Black" wasn't as good as "City" for sure but it was still really ****ing good. 'Far Beyond Metal' is probably one of my favorite SYL songs ever, even before TNB when, back in '98 off "No Sleep 'Til Bedtime"... now hush noob.

Sorry, I didn't really mean it sucked balls compared to every other metal album out there, I mean compared to all the other SYL/DTB albums.

Will he still make albums with this band after the break up?


He'll make Devin Townsend albums (Like Ziltoid), but not DTB or SYL albums.

Well I'm pissed off!

In the Vampira film clip, in the last shot of the comic book, I was sure it said 'The vampire feasts... ...on souls... ...and sausages... Madness!!' but when I paused it, I discovered it said '...and causes... madness'.

Grrr. I'm very dissapointed in you, Devy.
