DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT reveals first glimpse of forthcoming ‘Retinal Circus’ CD/DVD

July 18th, 2013

        

After releasing Epicloud last year to critical acclaim, the DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT is now ready to give fans the first preview of their next release: the Retinal Circus CD/DVD set! In regards to the Retinal Circus, Devin Townsend comments:

“So closing in on 8 months of work, we’re almost finished with the ‘Retinal Circus’! It’s been a huge amount of work for everyone, from the show, down to DVD & Blu-ray authoring, artwork, logistics…(not to mention the show itself!) but we’re almost there, and when watched in its entirety, it’s really a heck of an experience!

To tie you over until it’s out, here’s a clip of the song ‘Grace’…It’s out of context obviously, but hopefully gives you a vague idea of what’s about to come out.

It’s been a ton of work for everybody and we’re really quite proud of it…When the final products have been produced, we’ll let you know!

Fun! Whew!!!” Read the rest of this entry »

DOWNLOAD FESTIVAL 2013

July 17th, 2013

Download Festival 2013

@ Donington Park, UK

June 13th-15th

Review by Anna Dumpe

Download 2013

Download Festival is known as one of the most exciting rock/metal festivals all over the world. It’s usually one of the first events to kick off the festival season and it never disappoints. For eleven years in a row, Download has booked some of the biggest names in rock and metal music scene and 2013 was no different. Three acts to headline the Download weekend of June 13th-15th included Slipknot, Iron Maiden and Rammstein. However, many other bands appeared on five different stages across the weekend and we were there to catch as many of them as possible. So we offer you to read about our Download 2013 adventures and see what you missed out on, if you weren’t there.

FRIDAY

The excitement that kicks in once you arrive to the arena is inconceivable. You see first bands hitting the stage and thousands of heavy metal fans arriving and gathering together. The sun is shining and beer is flowing signalizing the beginning of one of the most exciting weekends of the year.

We’re at Download 2013. This is happening…

Download 2013

Download 2013

The first band we get to catch when arriving to the arena is Asking Alexandria.
While the legendary Uriah Heep are performing on the Second (The Zippo Encore) stage. It’s an easy decision, so we quickly pass the Main stage to kick off our Download 2013 with some good old “Easy Livin’”.

Uriah Heep put on a great show and it’s a pleasure to be watching such a classic band still going strong. They’re still sounding tight and perform some of their greatest tunes they’ve ever written, like “Sunrise,” “Gypsy,” “Look at yourself” and, obviously, “Easy Livin’”.

After a great set by Uriah Heep, we head back to the Main Stage to see Papa Roach.
We wonder if there are still people out there that genuinely love this band, taking that their streak of luck happened quite a while ago. About a minute later our question is answered when we’re nearly swept off our feet by thousands of Papa Roach fans, running head over heels, just to fight their way through the crowd and get to the front of the stage. True story, ladies and gent. It was crazy.

Papa Roach set is everything you’d expect from it. It’s energetic, fun and a bit ridiculous when singer Jacoby Shaddix jumps off the stage to dive in the mud. …but that’s what you do when you’re at Download Festival, right?

Not everyone’s a fan of this band, but trust us on this one. When it comes to hits like “Between Angels and Insects,” “Scars” and “Last Resort,” not a single person in the audience is able to stand still.

After a good shot of energy delivered by Papa Roach, we head over to The Pepsi Max Stage to witness The Sword blast out some epic riffs in the best retro-metal manner. Coming all the way from Austin, Texas to perform material off their new album ‘Apocryphon’ and throw in some good old classics, like “Freya,” The Sword guys prove themselves as a great bunch of professionals that manage to sound live as great as they sound on the record.

Back to the Main Stage and it’s time to see Down.
Phil Anselmo and the boys have chosen to perform a great selection of tunes turning their set into an absolutely ripping performance. Songs like “Witchtripper,” “Lifer,” “Ghosts Along the Mississippi,” “Stone The Crow” and “Bury Me In Smoke” go down exceptionally well.

Best comments in-between songs and the funniest facial expressions delivered by the one and only Mr. Phil Anselmo; there is no stage too big for that man.

Next up on the main stage are Korn with a thrilling and rather challenging set, as they mix all the well-known classics with some fresh material off their latest album The Path Of Totality. Dub step inspired tracks, like “Narcissistic Cannibal” and “Get Up!” go down surprisingly well and the audience seems to be having a blast.

Songs like “Falling Away From Me,” “Coming Undone”, “Did My Time” and “Freak On A Leash” are sounding as powerful as ever and takes us on a sentimental trip back to the 1990’s when nu-metal and dreadlocks ruled the charts and were a part of every teenager’s life.

Next up on the Main Stage are Bullet For My Valentine.
Apologies to all their fans, but no, thank you.

We leave the Main stage to catch the upcoming and in-every-aspect-awesome-and-mind-blowing French trio The Algorithm. They’re on at The Red Bull Studios Stage and deliver a killer of a set. Songs like “Trojans” and “Access Granted” are the right party anthems to officially kick off this Friday night. As amusing it might seem to see hundreds of metal heads bounce around to electronic music mixed with proper metal breakdowns, it’s also incredibly satisfying to see so many people that seek variety in heavy metal genre and are here to support upcoming artists, like The Algorithm.

Just before it’s time to head to the Main stage for tonight’s headliners, we wander off to the Second Stage and catch a bit of Gogol Bordello’s on-stage shenanigans.

Download 2013

Download 2013

Bringing a full band of eight people with him, he puts on a show that’s as entertaining as hectic and chaotic. There’s a mad party happening on-stage and within the audience, as the band performs hits like “Wonderlust King,” “Break The Spell” and “Start Wearing Purple”.

Gogol Bordello is a gypsy punk band you must see if you’re familiar with or a fan of Eastern European and Russian culture, as hearing their music will make you want to down vodka, dance a little stupid and swear in Russian. What a band..!

After a nice day of watching lots of great bands and drinking beer with your mates, it seems that it doesn’t get any better than this, but just because we’re at Download, it does, in fact, get a lot better.

It’s Friday night at Download 2013 and 90’000 people are here in Donington Park to witness Slipknot headline the Main stage for the first time since 2009. The crowd is buzzing with excitement, as we prepare to be blown away by their performance.

Download 2013

Download 2013

Slipknot take the stage with an incredible amount of energy and they manage to own the crowd within seconds.
Opening their set with “Disasterpiece,” Slipknot manage to shake the grounds of Donington like a thunderstorm. Blasting out a hit after hit, they seem to have managed to put together a set list to please any kind of Slipknot fan. Classics like “Wait and Bleed,” “Dead Memories,” “Sulfur,” “Psychosocial” and “Duality”, which is dedicated to Paul Gray, really make the crowd go nuts.

There’s mosh-pits, circle-pits, crowd surfing and random human bodies flying around the place. The performance is stopped twice during songs “Before I Forget” and “Left Behind”, as the safety barrier in front of the stage collapses twice. It’s an absolute madness, but it’s also the best fun we’ve had in a long time.

The band appear to be in a great shape and are sounding superb. Corey Taylor’s vocal parts are sounding immense and Joey Jordison’s drumming is, as always, spectacular and a real entertainment to watch. Shawn ‘Clown’ Crahan is a great entertainer, as she smacks the hell out of his percussions while spinning up in the air.

After finishing their set with “Spit it Out,” Slipknot return to stage for an encore of “(sic),” “People = Shit” and “Surfacing”.
The band really put their heart and soul into this performance and you would struggle to find a single member of the audience that was left unsatisfied.

DEVIN TOWNSEND W/ Meshuggah @ O2 Brixton Academy

May 14th, 2013

Devin Townsend

Meshuggah and Periphery

@ O2 Brixton Academy

3rd May, 2013

Review by Caitlin Smith

Photography by Michelle Murphy

The grand old cinema in Brixton opened its doors once again that night for a show befitting the epic backdrop of the arena. Two metal titans, Devin Townsend and Meshuggah were gearing up for a double headline slot that night. With queues wrapped right round the building, the atmosphere was already buzzing despite the early door time of 6pm. Two giant anti-surfing signs set in red at the front of the stage was a reminder that for this evening, metal had to be on its best behavior.

DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT premieres video for “Lucky Animals”

November 13th, 2012
       

Devin Townsend – guitar virtuoso and music genius – recently released his latest effort, Epicloud, under the slogan: “It’s Epic, it’s Loud, it’s ‘Epicloud’”. Today finally sees the premiere of Devin’s new video for the track “Lucky Animals”, off of the new album Epicloud. The video was created on the basis of combining all sorts of amazing and outstanding self-recorded videos that were submitted by Devin fans from all over the world, to make “Lucky Animals” a very special visual experience for everyone. More than 150 videos were submitted, out of which a good 130 made it into the video in the end (due to quality or legal issues some could not be used unfortunately).

Check out the new “Lucky Animals” video here: http://www.metalhammer.co.uk/news/devin-townsend-lucky-animals-video-premiere/

In regards to the video, Devin Townsend comments: “Hey guys! So here’s what we came up with for ‘Lucky Animals’! We tried to use at least a clip from everyone’s contributions, I really hope we succeeded =) …The sync was a little difficult with some of them, and the quality varies between them all, but man…such fun! It’s a great feeling to see people having a good time, and it makes us feel great that we’re all having a good time with such a dumb song. Thanks a lot for this! Feel free to post your full videos on Youtube as well!”

To purchase Epicloud, please visit iTunes for a digital copy or CM Distro for various CD/LP formats. Read on for a few reviews of the album:

Devin Townsend recently played to a completely packed out Roundhouse in London on October 27th, wrapping up most of his entire career in a 3+ hour-long set. Narrated by Steve Vai on three big video screens, this “Retinal Circus” performance was accompanied by Baby-Ziltoid, Jed Simon, Anneke van Giersbergen, to name but a few, plus various actors, animals and other performers. For those who didn’t make it to the show and also missed the live-stream of the event, this spectacle was filmed and will be available on DVD and Blu-Ray later in 2013, so watch out for more info about this coming soon!

DEVIN TOWNSEND Interview

October 30th, 2012

Devin Townsend Interview

by Ashlinn Nash

Photos by Jo Blackened

Altercarnated Photography



Devin Townsend is a musician prized for his wizardry and creative integrity.

With a back catalogue ranging from the extreme metal influenced Strapping Young lad, to experimental craziness with his self release “Devlab”, right upto the soft and melancholic album “Ghost” . The variations from the Canadian, are somewhat of a creative collage, making Devin one of the most hard working and busiest musicians to date.

I managed to catch up with Devin in Century media’s London office for an exclusive face to face interview in time to question him about Epicloud and the upcoming projects as I tried to unravel the maze behind the magicians’ mind.

Devin Townsend to stream sold out Retinal Circus extravaganza live online at LiveMusicStage.com

October 9th, 2012

On October 27th, renowned multi-instrumentalist, singer, songwriter, producer and now ringleader, Devin Townsend is gearing up for one of his biggest accomplishments to date: The Retinal Circus. Set to take place at London’s historic Roundhouse venue, this one-night only event has been sold out for over a year now; however, fans worldwide can still watch this event live online, thanks to Northern Music Company & InsideOut Music in association with Live Music Stage.

Devin describes the Retinal Circus as: a retrospective of my career in music to date, with the central theme being a metaphor of how life and the adventures therein are a ‘circus’ of sorts. The show involves a cast of characters and guests that support this theme through carnival type performances. A story about how a troubled young man dreams of fantastic scenarios, (illustrated through the music of my back catalogue), which ultimately crests in the characters realization that life is all about the relationships we have with each other. This is the first opportunity I have been given to make theatrical representations of my music.”

 

This three hour plus performance will include:

 

- A retrospective of Devin Townsend’s entire career

Vancouver’s Devin Downsend may be the closest thing modern heavy music has to Frank Zappa, but these days he’s feeling more “Def Leppard.” His latest effort, Epicloud, with the Devin Townsend Project, was issued Sept. 18 and is some of the most accessible work he’s ever done. And along the way he discovered an affinity for pop music.

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

July 28th, 2012

METAL HAMMER GOLDEN GODS AWARDS 2012

Review by Hal Sinden

Photography by Ashlinn Nash



Despite its reputation for a tricky commute and arguably eyesore appearance (don’t confuse familiarity with satisfaction, fellow Londoners), the O2 Arena is a fantastic venue space for the Golden Gods and ample notice that metal is still as healthy as it ever was, showing no signs of bowing to austerity measures.

What would we do without this yearly event? 

Well, for a start we’d probably have healthier livers and better hearing in our later years, however many would also be deprived of their chance to postpone their Download hangovers or simply be given a reason to wash off this year’s festival mud and watch some of the scene’s glitterati forget about their day jobs for an evening.  Metal Hammer Magazine’s annual schmoozefest is upon us, and with it a dazzling array of leather, lip gloss & limp fringes.
