One of alternative music’s most outrageously multi-talented lunatics is back, armed with a bald head, a new-found sobriety, and 60 fresh songs produced under The Devin Townsend Project moniker. Addicted is the second album of Townsend’s 4-album journey through his past styles, prior influences, and current state of middle-aged madness.

It’s tempting to write this review using the amusing garbled French-English mash-up speak preferred by Quebec’s finest deathcore deniers, Despised Icon. The twin vocals of Alexandre Erian (screamy man), and Steve Marois (death-growler man), render the new album’s lyrics audibly indecipherable anyway, so why didn’t they just verse in their native French? Were they trying to sell more records that way?

We all know about Jamie Hooper’s departure from Canadian Power Metal outfit, 3 Inches Of Blood, due to vocal problems and possible damage. We all know about the infamous punch up that led to the change in drummers. But what we want to know though is, can these guys still produce the goods with the line-up changes, and can Cam Pipes cope with his elevated vocal duties role?

Whoever said politics and music don’t or shouldn’t mix clearly didn’t tell the folks in Propagandhi. Aside from having one of the most potent (yet subtle) political names of any punk band ever, they’ve also been venting their political spleens and frustrations for over twenty years.

2008 into 2009: Bury Your Dead

December 9th, 2008

Aaron “Bubble” Patrick is the bassist from Bury Your Dead. Earlier this year, he drove his band into a ditch. That’s not a metaphor or anything. He simply drove his band into a ditch. If you’re laughing, you’re a bad person.

What was your highlight of 2008?
Definitely the amazing tours we’ve been a part of. 5 Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Machine Head, Hell Yeah, Parkway Drive just to name a few. Touring and becoming friends with these bands is priceless.

What was the lowlight of 2008?
Ha ha! That’s easy. We flipped our old van four times driving into Canada and we were all hospitalised. I was driving so for me it was the one of the worst things I’ve ever been through. As soon as we stopped I thought I had killed my best friends and bandmates. So note to self: vans make horrible roller coasters.
