05:16 - Apothecary Also, I wouldn't call Zeppelin JUST hard rock/proto metal either, they were also quite bluesy and very folk-influenced, so there's also that to consider as well
05:13 - Apothecary I would consider Deep Purple and Zeppelin as PROTO metal at most. It was really Sabbath that developed the dark, heavy, riff-driven style that is now essentially the core staple of the entire genre
05:05 - deadone In other news, nothing gets one out of the sadness from attending a funeral like thrash fucking metal. It's that ugly kick in the face that one needs to get out feeling sadness.
05:03 - deadone Even Sabbath didn't play "pure heavy metal" - lots of heavy blues and rock n roll here even on early stuff. In any case Zeppelin are far more metal than half the shit that gets labelled metal these days.
05:00 - deadone Led Zeppelin have always been regarded as one of the first heavy metal bands - indeed the Holy Trinity is Black Sabbath, Deep Purple and Led Zeppelin. What they played did differ from modern metal.
04:34 - Apothecary I saw Led Zeppelin labeled as metal and that was my queue to stop taking whoever wrote that article seriously
04:25 - Maco That actually looked rather cool, Dima.
Devin Townsend just doesn't stop. With the Casualties Of Coolrelease on the horizon, Devin is already preparing the next one and that will be Ziltoid 2. The recording for the new album has begun and the Casualties Of Cool pledge (currently at 490% !) is also funding the Ziltoid project. Drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has confirmed that the drum tracks are done for Ziltoid 2. The theme of the double album is Ziltoid versus the Devin Townsend Project, with both getting their own album.
Ryan shared this message: "Ziltoid 2 drum tracks are officially done! That was the most insane day I've ever done in the studio and easily the most memorable and rewarding. Time to rest as I've got another album to record tomorrow before I fly home Monday.... DTP album is next!"

Back in April, Devin shared these tentative song titles:
From Sleep Awake
March Of The Poozers
Ziltoid Goes Home
Offer Your Light
With all due respect, I never care about Devin's music. Yeah, til he was in SYL, I liked his music and passion. Dropped his solo career, I felt little unattached and not intrested. Although, he has superb mastery of writing dark lyrics and his chain of black humor in cartoon characters is amazing but I don't know I never felt connected with him.
It's like I always ignore his news/interviews and albums lately. No, I don't hate him and his music doesn't suck but it's just like that feeling where you ought to ignore it. It's weird.
