IHSAHN CONTRIBUTES VOCALS TO DEVIN TOWNSEND ALBUM!
You love Ihsahn; you named his 2010 album After as the MS readers’ collective favorite album of the year, and with great reason. You love Devin Townsend; no qualifier needed, because obviously you do unless you’re a complete ninny. So how do you feel about Ihsahn and Devin Townsend together… on one recording??
From Ihsahn’s official Facebook page, via MS reader (and fellow Ihsahn and Devin Townsend lover) “Deeds”:
“I have been a long time fan of Devin and his work, and when he asked me to do some vocals for his upcoming Deconstruction album, I said yes right away. Devin is one of those few uncompromising artists who goes anywhere with their music, wherever that takes them. Nothing but respect!”
I think we can all agree that this is pretty much the best news that will break all day, even though it’s not even 10am yet. For all of Ihsahn’s musical prowess his voice is quite arresting as well, and I’d say a crucial part of what made After such a special record. Much like Devin he’s a really, really talented but under-appreciated vocalist — certainly one of the best in modern metal — so this strikes me as a fantastic match. Master meets master. Can’t wait!
Ghost and Deconstruction, the 3rd and 4th Devin Towsend Project albums, will be out later this year.
