The last and best Strapping Young Lad video

Recommended Posts

Awesome track. I'm a fan of Devin's solo stuff (I think Terria's one of the best albums ever recorded), but I'm not overly familiar with SYL's output. On the basis of this song, however, I may have to delve deeper.

Yeah! Terria is brilliant. Especially songs like Deep Peace, Earth Day and Canada. Epic as fuck and the artwork really sets a mood and theme. *So much so that I bought the artwork*

SYL are way more brutal and less proggy the Devs solo stuff.

I would recommend buying Alien by SYL if you want to get into them...or...City.

It took me a few listens, but I now absolutely adore this tune- especially incorporating blast beats into a melodic passage.

I've never really gotten into SYL but I'm certainly going to have to buy one of the aforementioned albums and discover what I've been missing out on.

Yeah, it's an aquired taste IMHO. I reckon that with this song, if you took away the blasts/raaaar vocals, you would be left with a beautiful/melodic song.

The New Black isn't a great album IMHO but it was rushed. The record company pressured Dev to write a new SYL album asap.

However, yep "Almost Again" kicks ass
