Epicloud has been teased endlessly over the last few months and finally, today, we get our first real insight into the album as a whole in the form of the above teaser video which contains snippets of every track. Dev was right when he compared this outing to Queen, it’s definitely got that majestic and orchestral grandiose feel to it, but also in tracks like ‘More!‘, ‘Grace‘ and the re-recording of ‘Kingdom‘ there’s allusions to his heavier material. Just based on these short snippets, it’s looking like this may be the most general and broad Townsend release in quite a while as the ‘theme’ sounds a little more accepting of both bombastic crunch and introspective calm, but regardless of overarching themes, it naturally sounds great. Roll on September.

– DL
