Artist: Devin Townsend Release: Ocean Machine Year: 1997 Labels: HevyDevy/InsideOutMusic Style of Music: Progressive metal, hard rock, alternative rock, progressive rock, heavy metal Origins: New Westminster, British Columbia, Canada
Lead Singer and guitarist for the extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad. This is his solo experimental stuff, I must say I like this one it has a heavy hard rock Pink Floyd kind of feel about the whole release. This release would fit well just within the hard rock side as well, but it still has metal overtones to the whole musical experience.

This release is a little out there, the music is still heavy and with hard rock and metal elements, but still with some out there experimentation, which seems to have been inspired by Townsend's mental break he was experiencing.

A little back story on this release, word was the early demos of the idea behind this release was from a side project that Townsend was attempting to do at the time with Newsted called IR8, who was at the time still in Metallica, but the other band members of Metallica put a stop to it and well this release ended up being a Strapping Young Lad off shoot project.

Wow this is a well a very moody release and feel all around, some techno industrial ambiance music listeners might get into this one, the music is hard heavy but without being overboard like the artist's previous experimental material. This is kind of like the band Filter on steroids or something.
@Dreadlord Ahh good pick, I have a whole playlist filled with Týr material, I just have not gotten to it yet. Maybe before the year is over with, I have way too much in my queue, before I get down to the bottom of the artists that I have in a Playlist Folder that begin with the letter T.
For anyone who wants a peek here it is the whole playlist:
