Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, STEVE VAI, LAMB OF GOD, DARKEST HOUR, GWAR) spoke about his vegetarian diet and his passion for cows during an interview with Gilles Lartigot of “Heavy Metal Food”, a new Radio Metalcolumn associating metal music with cooking. The chat, which was taped on December 14, 2011 at Foufounes Electriques in Montreal, Quebec, Canada, can be seen below.
Townsend played four shows in London in November 2011 dedicated to his tetralogy album concept — a great journey through Devin‘s different states of musical moods — which he started in 2009 with the albums “Addicted” (2009) and “Ki” (2009) and finished with last year’s “Deconstruction” and “Ghost”. The concerts were professionally recorded and filmed for a unique four-disc DVD release, which is tentatively due in July. Devin states, “I love being able to make huge projects. In this age, it’s essential.”
DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT released “Contain Us”, a special tribute box set for its epic quadrology (“Ki”, “Addicted”, “Deconstruction” and “Ghost”) on November 29 in North America. “Contain Us” was designed and created by Man Alive‘s Tom Bejgrowicz (who also conceived the classic and must-have MISFITS “Coffin” box-set) and is the ultimate collection for every diehard Devin fan. The standard box-set is priced at $80.00 while the hand-numbered box with the 10″ and a lithograph drawn and autographed by Devin is $100.
