    Sorry this is a little off-topic, but speaking of metal are you a Devin Townsend fan? Ziltoid 2 dropped in October and I’m liking it…

      Actually, I’ve never listened to his solo work or his former band. So, you recommend his music? I’ll give it a listen.

        I think it depends on your preferences. I like his Ziltoid albums, but I’ve heard his Devin Townsend Project stuff isn’t nearly as heavy as Strapping Young Lad.

        I’ve never listened to that band’s music before either. I’ll check them out too.
