You know, yesterday, I bought the Storm Corrosion album, because I figured it couldn’t be bad — and Roadrunner doesn’t send me promo material. Yes, Roadrunner Records does not send promo materials to this blog, which I think is strange. But I know why.
Anyways, so…maybe I need to listen to it more, but I’m not loving Storm Corrosion. I don’t know if I’m nuts or what, but it’s not very good. Sorry.
I have a feeling Devin Townsend’s next album will be good. In fact, I know it will be awesome, because Devin can do no wrong.
Devin was on Twitter to wax poetic about his band’s next album, Epicloud — and from the sounds of it, I’m going to jizz my pantaloons.
“Epicloud: Initially an ‘in between’ idea to bridge the 4 last albums and Z2…a way to satisfy my recent craving for melodic hard rock…It became an epic experiment. way more intense and demanding than I expected.
“Experiments in all ways of making records. Democracy, mix…it’s beautiful, melancholy, loud, and ‘detached’ in an experimental way,” Devin says, adding he “wanted to make something ‘larger than life’…
“Any way you slice it, it’s beautiful… and even as an ‘interim’ idea, it stands unique among things I’ve done, and as something very special
“Oh, and…it’s freaking Epic!! I’d say mixture of melodic parts of Ocean Machine, Rocking bits like Addicted, simplicity in parts like Accelerated, but more dynamic. …And tried to mix it so you could crank it up.”
Devin has said the album will likely be in stores in September.
