Devin Townsend Project - "Deconstruction" album

Metal fans worth their weight already know that Vancouver's Devin Townsend is one of the most talented and versatile players in the genre. "Deconstruction" is his newest project, and it corrals players from bands like Soilwork, Opeth, Emperor, Gojira, Dillinger Escape Plan, Gwar, Meshuggah, and others. It's a huge thrash metal concept album-slash-opera, with huge production, bludgeoning riffs, and plenty of humor. (HevyDevy Records)
