Devin Townsend - Album Details Revealed


Hevy Devy is a hot, hot, hot item on Metal Storm these days. The musical genius/maniac has finally announced more details regarding the release of Deconstruction and Ghost the third and fourth in a series of albums which will complete 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).

Townsend tapped Jens Bogren (Paradise Lost, Opeth, Bloodbath) to mix Deconstruction. The sessions took place late last month at Fascination Street studio in Örebro, Sweden. The CD features guest appearances by a number of well-known metal musicians (see below) as well as two drummers Ryan Van Poederooyen (The Devin Townsend Band) for the "crushing stuff," and Dirk Verbeuren (Soilwork, Aborted, a shitload of other bands) for the "inhuman stuff."

Deconstruction and Ghost will be released in North America on June 21 (one day earlier internationally) through InsideOut Music.

    Damn... One album (Ghost) has an amazing cover and the other a very weird one. But I guess both fit his usual covers.

    When I saw the cover I was definitely "I'll buy it at once"! Really love it, it's totally stupid, and really fitting, given what he says in teh interview.

    I don't like this Deconstruction cover at all. Not like that really matters, I still can't wait to hear it.

    I actually really like the cover of Deconstruction. The slipcase is too 'minimal' in ways, just not mad enough. Will be looking forward to both these releases and hopefully see him on tour later this year.

    That guest list is terrible. Hopefully the guest vocals are scarce, but somehow I doubt they will be.

    Looking forward to the albums though.

    So i wonder who's gonna play on Ghost, i guess there wont be any big names, but more kind of session players, but i would like to know what's their background.

    I don't like the cover, not for a metal album but in general, it could have been better in many senses, thou it can be a bit funny.

    Awesome!! There are so many top notch musicians on Decon. I can't wait. The artwork is dark, but silly. I have a feeling that's how this record will be.
