Episode 41 - City by Strapping Young Lad

We all love this record. Let’s just get that out of the way right now. It stands out in Devin Townsend’s oeuvre as being perhaps the single most focused and heaviest thing he’s ever done. It’s tight, almost organic feeling, and not a single note feels wasted.

Townsend’s back catalogue is massive, so in this episode we wrestle with it as best we can, all whilst returning to the drive of the man himself. His discography goes in just about every direction you can imagine, but with each new path he treads he seems to do so in the most extreme way possible. Over the top, ambitious and with an immense sense of humour, we felt that this album is what best represents Devin Townsend.
