Devin Townsend Project - 'Epicloud' (album stream)
By Josiah HughesFormer Strapping Young Lad member and Canadian metal powerhouse Devin Townsend is gearing up to drop his sprawling 15th solo album Epicloud on September 18. Rather than make you wait, however, we're allowing you to start studying this one early with a full 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."

Dig into the spiritual pop metal songs below with our full Epicloud album stream. Also head here for a full list of Townsend's North American tour dates.

After losing my obliterating my mind to the edges of the universe with Destruction, then forcing me recollect my sanity and zen-nature with Ghost, Devin unleashes Epicloud......and it is indeed EPIC! The Kingdom redux is FLAWLESS! The Effervescent/True North intro to the album screams Queen, which is in no way a bad thing. I love it! "More!" I can only assume, has an exclamation mark as an ode to Addicted. I will definitely be picking this up!

@Mr_Fantasy: If you get the 2-disc deluxe Digipak of Epicloud there are another set of songs, 45 mins worth. Devin is calling it "Epiclouder" and makes sense of the 1st album (his words).
