Devin Townsends "Deconstruction" under konstruktion

Devin Townsend leverede sidste år hele to albums, først den usædvanligt afdæmpede, ulmende, foruroligende og - efter egne standarder - minimalistiske "Ki", senere på året den eksplosive, tunge og voldsomt poppede "Addicted", der tillige havde selveste Anneke van Giersbergen som gæstevokal på de fleste af sangene. De to album udgør de to første "kapitler" af en cyklus på fire albums, der efter sigende kommer godt rundt om hele Townsends komplekse følelsesunivers.

Næste album i sagaen, "Deconstruction", bliver efter Devins udsagn særdeles heavy. Hvornår albummet ser dagens lys er endnu uvist, eftersom canadieren har en travl sommer med flere festivalgigs verden over, bl.a. på Tuska Festivallen i Helsinki, hvor han giver hele to shows - det ene bygget omkring det ældre album "Ziltoid the Omniscient". Devin rapporterer dog på InsideOuts nyhedsside følgende om arbejdet på det nye album:

"I have to say, things just keep getting deeper. I have a feeling that my proudest creative moments are yet to come, and my focus right now is really great. I think there's something about the perspective gained from the few years off that has gone a long way. Relearning what my motivations were as an artist really came from having some clear headed time to reflect. I'm so ready, and love what I do. Thank you for still being here (those of you who are!). That being said, I've been writing late into the nights, and although Deconstruction will confuse and possibly annoy some (many?) I believe it's a real triumph for me. Yes, it's 'heavy', but in the same way that 'Alien' was indicative of my thoughts at that age, Deconstruction is a mirror of my now. Dare I say 'mature?' ... nah. But it's pretty over the edge."

Vi venter spændt!
