Devin Townsend is a Canadian musician best known as the frontman of Strapping Young Lad, his longest running venture. In addition to S.Y.L., Devin has worked his magic on many other projects as a vocalist, multi-instrumentalist, engineer and producer. Over the years Heavy Devy has become known for creating a completely new studio and touring band for each solo release. This may be partially explained by the fact that each release usually has a very different sound than that of its predecessor. Devin has stated that each album is unique because he writes from his most recent experiences and what he is feeling at the time. Devin produces, either alone or with others, all of his own work. He has also worked with other artists in producing their music. Devy Metal is often very experimental and progressive. Utilizing digital audio tools and multitrack recording processes, Devin layers sounds, sometimes with several layers of the same instrument, and he will frequently lay down a soundbed of atmospheric noise giving a dense wall of sound effect. His versatile vocal delivery ranges from screaming to singing, and his songwriting is similarly diverse. This two-part compilation is an attempt to find cohesion within Devin Townsend’s vast body of work.
