Today, one of metal's most prolific and eccentric musicians, Devin Townsend, is releasing a brand-new DVD box-set, By A Thread - Live in London 2011. The four-DVD set features footage from each of Townsend's sold-out concerts in London during which all four Devin Townsend Project albums were played in their entirety.
Yesterday, the Land Down Under got a special treat at the Perth stop of Australian's Soundwave Festival as Gojira were joined onstage by Devin Townsend and Meshuggah guitarist Fredrik Thordendal for a live performance of "Of Blood & Salt." Check out the fan-filmed footage below.
In the following video, Guitar World's Paul Riario reviews the new Devin Townsend Signature PXD Vicious seven-string baritone guitar, an axe which combines the deep tones of a baritone with the comfortable feel of a standard electric.
To celebrate the upcoming release of its PXD Vicious Devin Townsend Signature Model, Peavey -- with Guitar World -- will present an exclusive online performance by The Devin Townsend Project on Tuesday, December 20.
As a guitarist, singer, musician and composer, Devin Townsend has done and seen it all. After starting out in the early 1990s as the singer in Steve Vai’s band, Townsend then went on to form the band Strapping Young Lad, releasing five albums between 1995 and 2006. After that band was dissolved, Townsend went on to form the Devin Townsend Project, releasing a series of four individual albums of different moods.
