Armageddon is upon us folks, and it's not the acts of terrorism or the imminent threat of war I'm talking about here, it's the fourth Strapping Young Lad album! While the ever prolific Devin has kept himself busy with such projects as Conjure One , Eko , The Devin Townsend Band , overseeing the construction of a new home studio and various production credits , there is no denying that most fans have been waiting a long five years for this album. As little as a year ago, Devin considered Strapping Young Lad a closed book. On numerous occasions he had stated that a follow up to 1997's classic City was unlikely to happen, and that the name of Strapping Young Lad wouldn't be defamed by releasing anything sub standard. However, that was all to change with the events that unfolded on September 11th 2001. The attacks prompted a new creative anger deep within Devin that led to the eventual early writing stages for one on the most anticipated album releases of 2003. With the classic line up intact, Devin Townsend on vocals, guitars and keyboards, Byron Stroud on bass, Jed Simon on guitars, Gene Hoglan on drums and newcomer Will Campagne now filling in on keyboards.

City is slightly better than this, but this is SYL's other good album. Only other album worth hearing imo. Alien has a few decent tracks but that's it.

Heard alien once long time ago and I don't remember it at all. Just hope that you are wrong in this case

I reckon aside from Shitstorm and perhaps one other track, you'll find it to be plodding and boring, lacking any of the energy of this and City
