Never afraid of the artistic leap of faith, Devin Townsend’s live performances have always been experiences of special extravaganza, just like the musical landscapes he creates. The larger-than-life evening at the legendary Royal Albert Hall however tops everything the inclined Devin fan has had the chance to witness so far. “Devin Townsend Presents: Ziltoid Live at the Royal Albert Hall” was filmed on April 13th 2015 at the world famous Royal Albert Hall in London, UK, shot with 14 high definition cameras. The show sold out within days of going on-sale. Featuring the entire ‘Dark Matters’ album from ‘Z²’, played front to back, plus a 2nd set of the most popular tracks from Devin’s career as well as rarely played tracks (picked by the fans through a Facebook poll in advance of the event), this release offers a perfect overview of Devin’s work past and present. The show was directed by Paul M Green (Devin Townsend, Opeth, BB King, Steve Hackett) and features special guests such as Dominique Lenore Persi (Stolen Babies), Chris Jericho (world-famous wrestler and singer of US band Fozzy) and Jean Savoie, with video narration by Bill Courage, as well as 12 singers & actors as cast and choir. An extra thumbs up to the audience at this show, who passionately sung along and turned this into a very exciting, unique event in Devin’s career.
As detailed and versatile as the evening itself, the release is available in different formats: as Artbook of 44 pages incl. the entire concert as well as extensive behind-the-scenes bonus footage and a full documentary, pressed on 3 CDs, 2 DVDs and a Blu Ray Disc, as Special Edition Digipak with 3 CDs and a DVD and as BluRay including the entire show and bonus material.
“Focul Viu” (Romanian for “Living Fire”) is the title of Negura Bunget’s first live DVD and double CD featuring a professional recording of a complete 90-minute performance in Bucharest in January 2008. “Focul Viu” is especially valuable because of the fact that it presents Negura Bunget in its classic line-up of Hupogrammos, Sol Faur, and Negru.
Anneke van Giersbergen, forever known as the former vocalist for melancholic metallers The Gathering and for her collaborations with the Devin Townsend Project and Arjen Lucassen (i.e. The Gentle Storm), formed VUUR in 2016, a new progressive metal band featuring renowned drummer Ed Warby (Gorefest, Ayreon) and some of the best heavy metal players in The Netherlands! The name VUUR – translated from Dutch as “fire”, which can also be interpreted to mean “passion” or “drive” – was chosen as a moniker to represent Anneke's metal side, with the idea that when fans buy a ticket with the VUUR name on it they will be getting her heavy progressive music, while an Anneke van Giersbergen show will be entirely different. “It's like I'm searching for contradictions,” Anneke says of splitting her focus in two. “I want the heavy to be really heavy, and the soft acoustic stuff that I can do can be almost silent and inward. I'm trying to find those outer limits. I'm still writing and collaborating with different people, so VUUR's style is still kind of different from The Gathering and The Gentle Storm. VUUR's music has the melancholy of The Gathering and certain elements from The Gentle Storm, but it's darker with fewer folk elements. It's still melodic and warm, but heavy.” Thus, “In This Moment We Are Free – Cities” features crushing riffs and impressive rhythm patterns whereas Anneke sends shivers down your spine with a truly intense vocal lines. So, make sure to check out Anneke’s ultimate heavy outlet.
