Why are people wasting breath and bandwidth arguing over the completely meaningless new Metallica album when there’s so much other fantastic new metal out there? Strapping Young Lad are a bit more polished than the bands I usually listen to, but frontman Devin Townsend is completely insane, and it comes through in his over-the-top singing and completely spastic song structures. This is really inspired music.
