Devin Townsend – Empath

Ah, Devin Townsend, the friendly and courteous Canadian evil genius, once very outspoken about the pros of using weed for creativity but now completely sober for years. I guess he found out that he was just as out there sober as stoned – and I mean that in the best possible way. My relationship with Townsend has been almost non-existent. Well, not entirely true – I did buy the underrated and at times brilliant Sex And Religion album by Steve Vai’s band Vai in 1993 where Townsend was the singer, but after that I have only read about the man and his escapades. Almost. I had heard songs here and there from his outfit Strapping Young Lad but nothing ever stuck with me so I never really bothered checking his stuff out. Now, Townsend has put out so many records with his different constellations that I really can’t be arsed to mention them all here. Besides it would take up too much space, so if you want to know, google the guy.
