DEVIN TOWNSEND GIVES YOU A TASTE OF WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BE ADDICTED
Addicted is an excellent name for the new album (and the second release this year alone!) from The Devin Townsend Project, for it is truly addictive. As Townsend himself put it, it’s a “no bullshit” heavy rock confection that’s as catchy as swine flu (and the dynamic between Townsend’s vocals and those of The Gathering’s Anneke van Giersbergen don’t hurt, either). Pussies who thought that Ki was too soft will be happy to hear Devin doing something a little more in line with SYL; real men who recognize that pretty much everything Townsend touches turns to awesome already know what they can expect.
There’s a teaser medley currently streaming on Townsend’s MySpace page; so many of you e-mailed us about it this morning that I’m not even sure why I’m telling you. I guess for the five of you are apparently unaware.
Addicted comes out November 17 on InsideOut Music.
