One of metal?s most intriguing and ominous figures is without a doubt the overly talented Devin Townsend, who triumphantly returns with a greatly ambitious new endeavor under the DTP (Devin Townsend Project) moniker. The new mind-blowing disasterpiece takes the man?s genius to unprecedented levels as he embarked on a massive 4-part album series, which kicked off with Ki and is followed up with the Addicted album that is set for a Nov. 17th release throughout North America via Inside Out Music.

The album?s heavily addictive title track can be heard now at, so head over now to check it out along with the first U.S. interview with Townsend concerning this release.

In order to tide over the eager savage consumers until release date, the band has launched a few special pre-order package deals online, which are available exclusively at (see link below) for a limited time, so head over now to secure your purchase before you are left out in the cold.

Townsend states: ?Musically, Addicted is along the lines of the big, wall of sound hard rock/heavy metal of Ocean Machine and Accelerated Evolution (even Physicist at points). It is a very direct and 'to the point' album with an emphasis on groove and the chorus. In the past, lots of my records end up taking a kind of Pink Floyd-ish route (between song meandering, etc.) Addicted is really simple: 11 rocking songs with no bullshit.

?The vocal duties on this record are handled by myself and Anneke van Giersbergen (ex-The Gathering). I wanted to have male and female vocals kind of 'tell the story' so to speak. It's an honor to work with her and she has a lovely, lovely energy. I absolutely love this record and it affects me in a way that I wasn't prepared for. It's a fully rocking album of optimism.?

Devin Townsend is back and has crafted the offerings of his much heralded career. Fans of hard rock, metal and overall interesting music take note because this material is going to touch your soul on multiple levels.
