Devin Townsend Project – Hyperdrive

I was made aware of this week’s pick by my son’s friend Jordan…thanks.   I figure after a few weeks of easy listening it is time to kick it up a notch.  When you listen to this song crank it to 11 and get out the air guitar…who cares what your kids/friends think.  Devin Townsend is a Canadian from the New Westminster , BC.  Townsend announced has completed plans for a four-album series called The Devin Townsend Project.  The project’s concept includes a different “theme” and a different group of musicians on each album.   Even within albums his sound can change dramatically.  The song of the week Hyperdrive features Anneke van Giersbergen on vocals.  This album is on the heavier side but other albums are quite different.

Check out Il-ah! which is another good song on the album that is quite different from the song of the week.

Enjoy – tell all your friends to join!

On a sad note REM broke up this week…they had a good 39 year run.  If you are new to the site check out a previous post on their last album.
