Devin Townsend Project
'Epicloud' (album stream)
According to Townsend himself, the 13-song album is unique in that he's interested in "simpler, commercial structures."
He even goes as far as admitting that he's embracing "catchy songwriting," saying, "I wanted something catchy as the flu, but with a sentiment that is romantic, positive and beautiful. Spiritual without religion and set to heavy music. Again, because some structures are 'common' (but new to me) this record is my take on what a big, epic, commercial sounding record that sings about nice stuff would sound like in Dev-land."
