DEVIN TOWNSEND On Forthcoming Album - "It Just Sounds Like A Journey Up My Own Ass In A Lot Of Ways"

Devin Townsend (2009) Devin Townsend (ex-STRAPPING YOUNG LAD) is featured in a new interview with The Gauntlet, discussing his new DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT album Addicted. An excerpt is available below.

Devin Townsend stated ""Deconstruction" is an entirely different beast. With "Addicted," I wanted equal male and female parts. With "Ki" I wanted female parts to punctuate it. "Deconstruction" is a hard one to describe. The more I do, it just sounds like a journey up my own ass in a lot of ways. The bottom line with it is it is a very complicated and interesting record with a lot of dynamics and music that is very heavy even for me. It is a really heavy and complicated record but not a typical metal record. It is more of a symphonic type of thing I am trying to do, whether I succeed someone else will have to judge. I want to include a lot of different musicians in the metal genre that can do the vocals that I am not good at, like death metal vocals. When I do death metal vocals, I sound like Super Grover."

The Devin Townsend Project recently released "Addicted" via Inside Out Records.
