SPEAKING OF ZILTOID…
The REAL Ziltoid has arrived on earth from Ziltoidia IX and left a message with us in the form a video on Devin Townsend’s YouTube account!
Devin told us there’d be a new Ziltoid album on the way when he took over MetalSucks for a day last Fall, so we can only assume work on Z2 has begun… or at the very least is on Devy’s brain. I’d imagine (and hope) that he’ll finish up Parts 3 and 4 of the Devin Townsend Project suite before moving on to the next Ziltoid record, but who knows; Devy’s mind works in mysterious (and brilliant) ways. Said Devy about Z2 back in November:
In the new record, it’s real drums, orchestra, choirs etc… a REAL doozy…
And the hair I used to have? The skullet?
It’s in a box and Ziltoid, the next generation puppet, gets it.
Watch him rock folks, there’s nothing he won’t do.
I’d love to be a fly on the wall when Devin records these things. Think there’s any kind of loose script or he just completely wings it?
“I hate your balls! They swing pendulously like two ostrich eggs in a turkey skin!”
