For my first real band post on this site I wanted to be about a musician that has made a major impact in my life. There have been many musicians that have made me the musician I am to day (Mike Portnoy, Frank Zappa, Steven Wilson, more that I'll feature in their own Retrospective later down the road). But there is one musician that has impacted me more then anyone...Hevy Devy.
As shown in the post title, I'm only sticking to Dev's solo material, for now. As much as I love Strapping Young Lad, his album with Steve Vai (Sex And Religion), and all of his guest spots and production work, His solo material is by far my favorite. For time's sake I'm going to give a brief description of all of Townsend's Solo albums to give you an idea of what to expect if you've never check out the legend yet. Although Dream Theater is my favorite band, Devin Townsend is my favorite musician. I hope this gives you an idea why and a reason to buy his whole discagraphy:
