The MetalSucks Podcast #20: Special Guests Devin Townsend and D.R.I.’s Kurt Brecht
This week Vince ventures into the mind of the mad genius Devin Townsend; they talk about his latest work, Casualties of Cool, the Retinal Circus live DVD, his dream of an eventual Ziltoid movie and his uncanny ability to multitask so many different projects at once while staying somewhat sane.
We invite Kurt Brecht, lead singer of D.R.I. and Pasadena Napalm Division, into the studio to help us figure out why metal singers and lyric writers have stopped using their pulpit for politics, or at least have shifted away from calling out Regan and Pol Pot by name in favor of a more introspective attitude. Have bands gotten heavier and lyrics gotten softer?
Pasadena Napalm Division – “Terror Cell”
Devin Townsend Project – “Lucky Animals (Live)”
