Updates - interviews

Devin Townsend

Devin Townsend, one of metal's most eccentric and prolific figures, graciously agreed to put up with me for half an hour to talk about recent developments in his career. Metal Storm has interviewed Devin several times before, most recently in 2012, and we now find him, six years and three albums later, in the midst of a very different state of affairs. On July 6, he will be releasing Ocean Machine - Live at the Ancient Roman Theatre Plovdiv, and I opened by reminding him of this.

ScreamingSteelUS: Next month, you're releasing Ocean Machine - Live At The Ancient Roman Theatre Plovdiv.

Although I always found it enjoyable, I never got really hooked on Icelandic black metal until first coming across the music of Wormlust in 2013. While the rest of the Icelandic scene was exploding seemingly everywhere around it, this idiosyncratic brainchild of one HV Lyngdal exerted an effort that felt slightly more discrete yet at least twice as powerful as the rest of the flock in The Feral Wisdom.

^Fans should really seek out the earlier Wormlust demos as well.

Becoming a huge admirer of what Lyngdal does in recent years, both via his own musical endeavors as well as for the Icelandic black metal community as whole, it was only a matter of time before my caged lunacy for both black metal and psychedelic music led to me seeking him out for conversation. Just recently, I was fortunate enough to catch the madman in his free time for an intriguing discussion about the intent of his work, his non musical artistic efforts, and more.
