Casualties Of Cool released2014-05-14 by SomethingSimilar | 29 Comments
|After a hugely successful PledgeMusic campaign by the veteran progressive metal musician, |
Devin Townsend today released Casualties Of Cool - a departure from Devin's usual
style and a foray into country and ambience with collaborator Che Aimee. He noted that he
aimed for the music to come across as "dark, quiet, and special", and that the album
was "a way to make music for myself, without pressure from anyone to do things a certain
The pledge campaign reached 521% of its target funding over its run, with Townsend noting
that any extra funds would go towards the creation of his next record, a sequel to 2007's
Ziltoid the Omniscient, related graphic novels and side projects, as well as a
portion being donated to local animal shelters.
The album is available immediately for backers of the pledge as a digital release (FLAC and
MP3), which can be found here : www.pledgemusic.com/projects/casualties-of-cool

Ye, cos its Devy...

Fucking hell, this rules. Shame I didn't pledge :[
Digging: Execration (NOR) - Return to the Void
Is it only going to be released to pledgers or will it be up for sale to the public at some point?
I think it will be available for everyone on the 20th.
It's really damn good.
Been listening to this virtually non-stop since its release.
can't wait to hear this
Hopefully this is more ambience and less country..
I wish I had money to pledge! I want this now!
any extra funds would go towards the creation of his next record, a sequel to 2007's
Ziltoid the Omniscient

Digging: Moby - Play
is it at least better than epicloud?
Time will tell.
epicloud was good though
epicloud was a 3. so yeah, it was good
3.6..it had some shit on it and wasn't very lasting but I enjoyed it still..the 2nd disc demo had some sweet stuff on it as well
i'm aware of the average. i was just saying what my personal rating of it was. ^ that's pretty much how i feel about it too. its not bad at all but its not one of devy's best
It was a good record but I'm much more excited to hear what this one sounds like. Ghost is one of my favorite pieces of his, so I'm excited for more chill Devy.
Digging: Penguin Cafe - The Imperfect Sea
