Album of the Month: February

Devin Townsend - Ziltoid the Omniscient

This is easily one of my favorite albums of all time. Let me try to sum it up in a single run on sentence: Ziltoid the Omniscient is a sci-fi progressive metal opera by Devin Townsend about an alien coming to Earth demanding a cup of coffee only to be insulted by the 'fetid' coffee presented to him. Yes, it's as amazing as it sounds.

Here's a few more songs:

'By Your Command'

This song demonstrates some of the many styles of Devin Townsend. He sends you from one mood to the next seamlessly. 'By Your Command' is my favorite song on the album, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.


And just one more. 'Hyperdrive' is one of Devin's more popish songs. He sings with clean vocals throughout (except one scream).

There is so much win in this album, I can't stress that enough. If you haven't listened to it yet do so. There is a sequel coming out!
