Read on for a few reviews of DTP’s critically acclaimed Epicloud:
“‘Epicloud’ is huge…Devin Townsend is to music as what Michelangelo was to painting and sculpting.” — ABSOLUTE PUNK.net
“Devin Townsend’s new album, ‘Epicloud,’ is incredible; it might be Devy’s White Album…It melds a whole lot of different styles into a series of dangerously catchy tunes; a whole lot of the album isn’t metal, but every second of it of is great, and yes, most certainly EPIC.” — METAL SUCKS.net
“…a bombastic and catchy record, filled to the brim with some of the best pop metal you will ever find…’Epicloud’ is without a doubt the strongest collection of songs on any Townsend record to date.” — HEAVY BLOG IS HEAVY.com
“Although he’s known world-wide for his heavy riffing, there has always been a lot more than just that going on in his music. Listening to ‘Epicloud’s opening tune ‘True North’ you get classical choruses, power-metal layering, Scandinavian folk and frightfully meaty sludge metal slashing.” — VANCOUVER PROVINCE
