Devin Townsend Casualties Of Cool cd dvd
You may know Devin Townsend as the founder of Strapping Young Lad, or as part of Steve Vai's Sex & Religion, but you can forget all that for now.  Casualties of Cool is an escape from over 20 years of relentless productivity and of the pre-conceptions surrounding his work.
 
A project over four years in the making, Casualties Of Cool revisits the rootsy country and North American folk music of Townsend's youth. 
 
Townsend considers the album as a chance to switch off from the hyper-accelerated world. The themes of the record surround what he believes to be a bridge in his career; an acceptance of the artist he is today and an embrace of the fear of leaving behind what people know of him.
 
A 2cd/1dvd set. The dvd (ntsc, region 0) features a previously unreleased live performance filmed at a sold out show at London's beautiful Union Chapel (plus an interview and two music videos).
