Just because Devin Townsend’s new album dropped and though I’ve never been a metal fan I really love this single and video. It seems appropriate.
I mean yes it’s silly and bombastic and ridiculous which is the whole point but Empath is a very seriously constructed album and there’s a whole really interesting set of things going on there and frankly I just think we need lots more music like this right now.
And since I’m not an actual musician all I can do is Frankenstein Youtubes together like Legos but I think I recognise what Devin is doing here.
So they rise: The fear and pain, but this isn't how I am
Don't you forget that you are loved
Don't you forget that you are them
Also I love hearing creatives talk about their process and the documentary is pretty cool too.
