Top 55 Devin Townsend songs (S.Y.L. Included)

Usually i make top 35s when it comes to Top songs by some artist, but this guy made so many albums and basically nor even a bad one (besides DevLab) that even a top 55 feels like too little.
55Devin Townsend
Terria


MOUNTAIN
If mountain is only 55th you can imagine what kind of genius Devin is
54Casualties of Cool
Casualties of Cool


DEATHSCOPE
The darkest COC song, a bunch of cryptic dissonant space noises thrown inside a chilling country piece
53Devin Townsend
Empath


HEAR ME
I hear Soilwork influences, which is obviously good.
52Strapping Young Lad
Strapping Young Lad


IN THE RAINY SEASON
While some complains about this album production, i find that the chaotic nature of it fits perfectly with pissed off Hevy Devy
51Devin Townsend Project
Z2


MARCH OF THE POOZERS
Everytime i listen to this song alien ballsacks asses with a face comes in mind
50Devin Townsend
Infinity


WILD COLONIAL BOY
A short circus-like avant-garde piece with catchy verses
49Devin Townsend Project
Deconstruction


JUULAR
Devin and Ihsahn together couldn't get wrong
48Strapping Young Lad
City


UNDERNEATH THE WAVES
While Detox is great i find it to be my lesser favorite from city aside for the cover, (you should get that this album is a masterpiece). I always found this one of the most underrated SYL tracks
47Devin Townsend Project
Transcendence


TRANSCENDENCE
This album is great but it's more traditional progressive metal compared to other Dev's works, so it lacks a bit of Dev's eclectic unique signature. Still it's a very well made prog album with very good song, most of all the transcendental (pun intended title track)
46Devin Townsend Project
Z2


BEFORE WE DIE
That chorus is intense. Anneke and Devin are a terrific duo.
45Devin Townsend Project
Ghost


GHOST
It's hard to think that the same mind behind SYL can create such chilling tunes.
44Strapping Young Lad
alien


IMPERIAL/SKEKSIS
Imperial perfectly sets the mood of this heavy chaotic masterpiece, followed by the even heavier Skeksis, a solemn example of industrial thrash metal.
43Devin Townsend
Ziltoid the Omniscient


SOLAR WINDS
The most popular from Ziltoid's saga. It really gives you cheesy 80s sci-fi vibes.
42Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


REGULATOR
The heaviest from OM, still it's surrounded by the oneiric atmosphere that permeates the album. Short yet effective lyrics and almost Rammstein-ish riffs.
41Devin Townsend Project
Deconstruction


DECONSTRUCTION
While this song seems stupid (actually an intro with sounds of a man shitting while talking of a burger are pretty much wtf) it hides a deeper meaning and social commentary about unsatisfaction and human nature, all hidden between the lines of over the top lyrics. Musically it reminds me of Destrage and Sikth. Djenty.
40Casualties of Cool
Casualties of Cool


THE BRIDGE
Egyptian esoteric music combined to the space atmosphere manages to create a unique feeling.
39Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


SEVENTH WAVE
A strong opener for one of the best albums in progressive. Very uplifting lyrics with simple yet effective musical structure.
38Devin Townsend
Terria


CANADA
The background atmospheric noises manages to raise the level of an already beautiful bittersweet song.
37Strapping Young Lad
Alien


ZEN
Structured chaos within one of their thrashiest pieces
36Devin Townsend Project
Addicted


NUMBERED
Anneke's chorus will stuck inside your brain. This is maybe the song that goes closer to The Gathering style within Devin's works with her
35Devin Townsend Project
Ghost


FLY
perfect for relax and meditation
34Devin Townsend
Empath


WHY?
Basically a disney soundtrack with motivational lyrics but without being nauseus and boring. Oh and that growl line surprised me a lot the first time.
33Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


VOICES IN THE FAN
That choir outro is magnificent combined to the rest of the song
32Strapping Young Lad
city


AAA
The building that opens the song is pure genius
31Devin Townsend Project
Ki


KI
Mr. Townsend wanted to create an album that could describe tranquillity, sober days, relax and mindfulness. This track alone achieve all of these goals. And that outro too.
30The Devin Townsend Band
Synchestra


VAMPOLKA/VAMPIRA
An halloween like polka intro leads to a song that basically sets whole Ghost's style before they were even a thing. Awesome Tim Burton-ish vibes.
29Strapping Young Lad
The New Black


WRONG SIDE
Maybe the best work by Jed Simmons. A thrash piece that manages to stay heavy even with catchy chorus and a nice growl/clean vocal alternation formula.
28Devin Townsend
Terria


DEEP PEACE
no other title could describe better this song.
27Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


HIDE NOWHERE
The most bizarre and avant-garde song from OM. Catchy, weird and happy sounding.
26Devin Townsend
Ziltoid the Omniscient


COLOR YOUR WORLD
I love how this guy managed to fit a long prog track woth deep meaningful lyrics about existence inside a concept about an alien searching for the best coffee in the universe
25Devin Townsend
Empath


SINGULARITY
The 23 minutes closer of empath is one of the most complex, proggy and technical works made by Devin. Steve Vai's solo is terrific and the final chorus is truly uplifting.
24The Devin Townsend Band
Accelerated Evolution


SUICIDE
A depressive track with an unique chorus that makes you feel the despair that Devin tried to put inside this iconic song. Seriously, the amount of emotion he put inside it is impressive.
23Devin Townsend Project
Deconstruction


SUMERIA
A blending of demented orchestra and death metal with schizophrenic signatures and atmoapheres. Dirk Verbeuten is one of the best drummers of our times, i'm curious to hear his work with the upcoming Megadeth album.
22Devin Townsend Project
Z2


UNIVERSAL FLAME
Poppy, catchy, sing along chorus, awesome production. Universal flame may be his most accessible track but it's uplifting vibe, positive message and outstanding chorus makes it one of my most played songs by him.
21Strapping Young Lad
Alien


SHITSTORM
Their second heaviest track. Gene Hoglan is not human. The pissed off lyrics spitted by an even more pissed off devin are surrounded by some of their most chaotic and angry performance ever. That sort of happy sounding chorus between the aggressive music is phenomenal.
20Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


NIGHT
This one contains such nostalgic vibes, perfect song for night driving.
19The Devin Townsend Band
Accelerated Evolution


DEADHEAD
maybe his most popular work. While it's rather simple it has tons of emotion, you can hear it flowing from Devin's passionate singing. I feel like it's one of his most personal works.
18The Devin Townsend Band
Accelerated Evolution


DEPTH CHARGE
Even better than deadhead, this opening contains some of Devin's best vocal performance, the adrenaline filled riffs makes it even stronger, perfect way to open a huge album.
17Devin Townsend
Terria


NOBODY'S HERE
The most melancholic work from Terria, beautiful chorus with bittersweet feelings.
16Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


BASTARD
For some fans his best work, while the main riff drags a bit this song gives the listener a feeling of pure magnificence and fear, maybe one of the best descriptions of death itself and how the human beings are nothing in front of it. Iconic riffs too.
15Casualties of Cool
Casualties of Cool


FLIGHT
Che Aimeè Dorvale gave us the performance of a lifetime in this reimagined north american country style piece. The space atmospheres adds that melancholic feeling of loneliness.
14devin townsend
Empath


GENESIS
Lots of genres influences wisely blended into a terrific solemn song, among Dev's most technical works.
13Devin Townsend Project
Addicted


SUPERCRUSH!
Again the Anneke/Devin combo creates some of the best dual vocals performance in modern metal. This song is perfect both for Metal fans and casual listeners.
12Devin Townsend Project
Epicloud


KINGDOM
I used to have Epicloud in my top ten Devin Townsend albums but while i still love the songs, it grew off me with time. BUT. this version of kingdom wipes away the original. Perfect wall of sound, arrangment and performance. A celestial opera.
11Devin Townsend
Terria


THE FLUKE
A rollercoaster of feelings. Maybe the proggiest song of early Devin. Lots of effort put in 7 minutes, the lyrics has a strong message and musically its marvelous.
10Strapping Young Lad
The New Black


ALMOST AGAIN
This may be the fastest ballad ever along with Fear Factory's final exit. (Gene Hoglan everywhere).
The melancholic vocals flows into high pitched raw screams in tge second part of the song. So many things in less than 4 minutes.
9Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


LIFE
I feel like this song is understimated. It's simple captivating approach makes it easy to listen and the positive vibes and lyrics about life itself are perfectly contraposed with the death themed songs of the album.
8Strapping Young Lad
city


OH MY FUCKING GOD
Without doubt their heaviest work. A nihilistic, ridiculously fast thashy track with unbelievably fast vocals and brutal riffs that will break your neck for the headbanging.
7Devin Townsend Project
Deconstruction


THE MIGHTY MASTURBATOR
A 15 minutes totally insane odissey inside Devin's deviant genius mind. Lots of different musical influences, dark humour, electronic bridges, schizophrenic songwriting. Just Devin doing Devin for 15 minutes straight, what do you need more?
6Strapping Young Lad
Alien


LOVE?
A cynical view of love with one of the best choruses by syl. Also their most popular track. Groovy, iconic and nihilistic like the Syl we love, just more accessible and catchy.
5Devin Townsend
Infinity


BAD DEVIL
A mix of industrial, prog, heavy metal, jazz and swing. Basically Devin inspired bands like Diablo swing orchorchestra and many others with just one song. The sing-along chorus is irresistible and the distorted swing signatures are pure gold.
4Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


FUNERAL
When Devin was in high school, 3 scumbags killed a kid just to steal his hat. This kid was the brother of a close Devin friend. This is Townsend's first approach with death. The lyrics are inspired by a speech made by Devin himself at his funeral and reflects on many aspects of death. The sounds of sea towards the end creates a odd but beautiful bittersweet feeling of sorrow and hope.
3Devin Townsend
Terria


EARTH DAY
I think this is about human kind. And Music itself. And nature. And the relationship that links those 3 things. This man put so many topics in just a 9 minutes song, blending humor, social and anthropological commentary, led by a terrific song, all blended in a monumental piece of music...and remember, it's all entertainment folks!
2Devin Townsend
Ocean Machine: Biomech


THE DEATH OF MUSIC
The quote "it's like the death becomes musical" perfectly sums this masterpiece. This guy managed to create a 12 minutes gargantuan opera on just a repeated beat without getting boring, instead he creates a crescendo that could be considered one of the best in any genre. Minimal yet so complex, this song represents death itself like something inevitable, not necessarily bad, the majestic atmosphere will overwhelm the listener in a unique way.
1Strapping Young Lad
city


VELVET KEVORKIAN/ALL HAIL THE NEW FLESH
While The death of music should be n.1 this song remains one of my favorites ever. The mechanical intro leads to a chaotic panic attack-like drum beats that flows into some of the most powerful songs in metal. Mentioning videodrome in the title, this song is the perfect sum of transcendence and metamorphosis, choatic and heavy but still elegant. Like only Devin Townsend could create.
