    Devin Townsend of Strapping Young Lad and The Devin Townsend Project sat down with ARTISTdirect.com for an in-depth interview about his Epicloud album, which is the fifth in the Devin Townsend Project series. He opened up, like a flower, about the writing process.

    The Canadian heavy metal visionary offers insight into how he writes and how he follows his musical compulsions. He reveals that he is always writing, since he has a guitar and a bass around him at all times. So his hands inevitably end up on the necks of the instruments and great music is born.

    He also discusses the themes he explored on the record. He suggests that a lack of accountability can be romantic when you are a young musician. But for this album, he wanted things to be optimistic but not altruistic. But he liked a spiritual connection, by incorporating a Gospel choir, without having to be religious.
