SOILWORK's VERBEUREN Layng Down Tracks On DEVIN TOWNSEND's 'Deconstruction' (Video)

Sick Drummer Magazine has uploaded video footage of drummer Dirk Verbeuren (SOILWORK, SCARVE, ABORTED) laying down the tracks for "Deconstruction", the third in a series of albums from Canadian musician/producer Devin Townsend (STRAPPING YOUNG LAD, STEVE VAI, LAMB OF GOD, DARKEST HOUR, GWAR) to be made available under THE DEVIN TOWNSEND PROJECT moniker. Check out the clip below. You can read Verbeuren's comments on the session at this location.

"Deconstruction" and its follow-up effort, "Ghost", will likely be issued in early summer via InsideOut Music.

Townsend has tapped Jens Bogren (OPETH, KATATONIA, PARADISE LOST, BLOODBATH) to mix "Deconstruction". The sessions are taking place at Fascination Street studio in Örebro, Sweden. The CD will feature a guest appearance by former EMPEROR frontman Ihsahn (real name: Vegard Sverre Tveitan) as well as two drummers — Ryan Van Poederooyen (TERROR SYNDROME, THE DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND) for the "crushing stuff," and Verbeuren for the "inhuman stuff."

Devin previously described "Deconstruction" as "brutal in a lot of parts, but pretty glorious in others. It rides the fence of negativity but ultimately ends supremely positive."

According to Devin, "'Ghost' is the mellowest (by far) and prettiest record I've done so far" with a "very wonderful vibe."

Townsend has just made a five-song live EP available for free download by spreading the word about this page at on Twitter and Facebook. The EP contains the tracks "Supercrush", "Kingdom", "Truth", "Om" and "By Your Command".
