Terria (Devin Townsend album). Terria is the fifth solo album by Canadian musician Devin Townsend. The album was released in August 2001 on Townsend's label, HevyDevy Records. Feeling he had "attracted a bunch of poo" with his previous album Physicist (2000), Townsend felt he had the chance to make a more personal and honest record.
In his most acclaimed release, Devin Townsend produces an album with immense detail - Terria. The amount of layering of tracks involved here is so much so that it's highly doubtful one will have found every detail even after numerous listens.
Devin Garrett Townsend (born May 5, 1972) is a Canadian musician, songwriter and record producer. He founded extreme metal band Strapping Young Lad and was its primary songwriter, vocalist, and guitarist from 1994 to 2007, and has an extensive career as a solo artist. After performing in a number of heavy metal bands in high school, Townsend was discovered by a record label in 1993 and asked to perform lead vocals on Steve Vai's album Sex & Religion
Devin Townsend is an artist known for his strange, yet undeniably original and unique music. Terria' is no exception. However, it's full beauty did not reveal itself to me until after a good many listens. At first listen, one may be puzzled by the overtracked recording, surreal lyrics, and incredibly anti- commercial approach to myself. Terria' has such a magic power about it, bestowing upon the artist the power to transport you wherever he wants you to go. A very earth-based album (much alike Synchestra) there are many recurring themes of nature wound around the music. Possibly the most defining quality of Terria, and Devin Townsend's music (in my opinion) is his unparelleled recording technique.
Band Name Devin Townsend. 版公司 InsideOut Music Hevydevy Records. Because of this the album can not be grasped either on the first or on the second time, it opens up only on the fourth or fifth take. It is for this reason that the album can provoke a whole lot of writing and talKing, and this is why the album can be rightfully recognized as the best of Davin’s works. Most of us live in cities: huge, large, medium, small - it doesn’t matter. The city is constantly teeming with activity, same things repeat constantly, all our lives here are equally monotonous (like ants in an anthill).
Physicist is the fourth solo album by Canadian musician Devin Townsend. The album was released on June 26, 2000, on Townsend's label, HevyDevy Records. Physicist is distinguished from the rest of Townsend's solo portfolio for the crossing of the style of his work in Strapping Young Lad with elements that had been explored in Ocean Machine: Biomech and Infinity. Notably, the line-up of musicians featured on this album is identical to that of Strapping Young Lad.
Terria is the fifth studio album by Canadian musician Devin Townsend. The album was released on November 6, 2001, on Townsend's label, HevyDevy Records. I began to find myself in a place of reconciling the whole 'City, Infinity, Physicist' period in my mind, and through small amounts of touring with the SYL guys (playing all manner of my material), had a bit of an epiphany while on tour in Canada supporting a band called 'The Smalls'
Devin Townsend – Terria. 이블: Inside Out Music America – IOMACD 4024. It's also not unremittingly bleak and depressing like Strapping Young Lad or Ocean Machine. Gene Hoglan's got this orgasmic fat-ass kick drum and there's a fretless bass (extremely underutilized instrument in rock music in my opinion).
