Physicist - _Physicist_
(HevyDevy Records, 2000)
by: Adrian Bromley (8 out of 10)
Listening to Devin Townsend's new project Physicist (following other great projects like Ocean Machine, Infinity and of course Strapping Young Lad) is like watching magician David Copperfield making the Statue of Liberty disappear. I'm left asking: how the fuck does he do it? Record after record, Townsend and his crew of metallers (most notably skin smasher Gene Hoglan) just push the envelope further by meshing truly powerful melodies with severe riffage and detonating forms of aggression. Loud, but no doubt a beautiful and jaw-dropping result. No doubt this is Townsend's most extreme trip yet into the wonderful world of metal music, but he does his best to make it as pleasant a trip as he possibly can. While my fave project of his is still SYL, this fucker delivers the goods. By the way, Devin, I am in total awe of the track "Death". WOW!
