Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend ( Strapping Young Lad , Steve Vai , Lamb Of God , Darkest Hour , Gwar ) will release “Deconstruction” and “Ghost” – the third and fourth in a series of albums to be made available under The Devin Townsend Project moniker – in Europe on June 20 via InsideOut Music .
“Deconstruction” and “Ghost” will complete his tetralogy album concept – a great journey through Devin ‘s different states of musical moods – which he started in 2009 with the albums “Addicted” (2009) and “Ki” (2009).
Even though “Ghost” is the fourth album to be made available under The Devin Townsend Project moniker, Devin recorded it third, because “Deconstruction” (the third album) was “a nightmare technically and I wanted to make something lovely before diving into that,” Devin previously said.
According to Devin , “ ‘Ghost’ is the mellowest (by far) and prettiest record I’ve done so far” with a “very wonderful vibe.”
Townsend tapped Jens Bogren ( Opeth , Katatonia , Paradise Lost , Bloodbath ) to mix “Deconstruction” . The sessions took place late last month at Fascination Street studio.
