“I Pinch Myself sometimes, because I get to Do Exactly What I Want”: In Conversation with Devin Townsend

By Andrew Bansal

Canadian musician, songwriter and producer extraordinaire Devin Townsend continues to enjoy a sizable fan-following the world of heavy metal, but in reality has reached a point far beyond any genre limitations, as proven by the latest Devin Townsend Project record ‘Transcendence’, and his evolution to reach this state is evident from his past work. Devin Townsend is currently indulging in sporadic live performances and all the while plotting his next creative moves, but recently, he completed a short North American run including headline dates as well as shows supporting Opeth and Gojira. This run started at the Glass House in Pomona, California, and Devin sat down with Metal Assault to talk about a wide variety of topics, and hinted at what he has in store for the future.
