Devin Townsend Project – Epicloud

Devin Townsend has returned with the fifth album under his penultimate solo moniker; the Devin Townsend Project. Over the past three years Devy has expanded into a wide array of musical soundscapes, pushing his repertoire into unexplored territories, as well as expanding on the styles and sounds that have made him a hit. While it will be startling for some, Epicloud should not be taken as an indication of where Townsend is going in his career. It is just another passing whim of his; a bombastic and catchy record, filled to the brim with some of the best pop metal you will ever find.

Upcoming The Ocean Record Will Be “Largely or Entirely Instrumental”

The Ocean released not one, but two stellar albums last year in a double album series tackling Christianity’s negative influence on science called Heliocentric and Anthropocentric. Part of what made the records so brilliant was the lyrical subject matter and the haunting vocal melodies sung by frontman Loic Rossetti. Looking forward into the next year, The Ocean are preparing their follow-up, and it seems like we’ll be making a new journey without input from Rossetti. Not that he’s no longer a member, but because the next record in their discography will be purposefully instrumental.
