    I'm kinda hoping for a new Ki-Addicted-Deconstruction-Ghost series along with another "By A Thread" kind of performance and boxset, but that's just my wet Dev-fanboy dream though :)

    I wouldn't mind another album in the veins of Ghost or CoC. At the end of the day - despite how much I adore Devs heavier stuff - those are the albums/projects that has impacted me the most ;)

    Looking forward to whatever he comes up with! :wub:

    Also, Ryan posted on FaceBook recently that he was writing some really heavy stuff. I wonder if he will end up doing another Terror Syndrome record?
    Fingers crossed :p

    He's plunging head first into writing at the moment, lots of different releases at the same time. Ocean machine live DVD next on the plate, coming out in a few months, July I think.

    When it's done. So in Devy terms some time between the next 3 months and 15 years.

    I guess this year will have some new material for us.

    Looks like the box cover for an 80es computer game. I'm not big into his records, I usually don't like the production, but I love his shows so if he tours again I'll go back.

    So I guess he's posting most updates on twitter.

    I don't mess with that shit so I'll just tune into this thread from now on.

    I just hope the "Solo + SYL" doesn't mean another watered down lamefest like Deconstruction. I really like the live versions of the songs from it that are on the Retinal Circus DVD, but I basically fall asleep if I listen to the album itself.

    Hah, there you go. Decon is easily my favourite Post-SYL album of his (not counting CoC) and I probably listened to the record once a day for about a full year at release.

    The Rave of The Mighty Masturbator might be my favourite moment in heavy music, in fact.

    I'm new to the DT realm, but I can say that CoC+Running shoes+2-5 miles+wireless earbuds=great combo.

    Same. It reminds me of Ocean Machine, and that’s just fine.

    New song out from the ex-DTP member

    It's... ok. Nothing special IMO

    On the one hand, it's a 45 second clip of pretty stock metalcore. On the other hand, Jed and Byron have their feet both firmly in old-school thrash metal so I have a lot of hope that they'll do something interesting using that influence, like Strapping did.

    I mean listen to Jed and Byron's Tenet project.



    How badass is this? If Imonolith is anything like this, it'll be lots of fun.

    The only worry I have is Beav and Ryan not being able to keep up with the faster stuff they might wanna do. Also, their singer... I kinda wish they'd have gone with someone a little more interesting than generic metal core guy #1412. Basically I trust in Jed and Byron to make amazing music, but I'm worried if the others can keep up with them.

    ^I've never really listened to Exodus before, but holy shit does Souza sound like Chuck Billy on that record. That really sounds like a lost Testament record that could've come out between Low and Demonic.

    I don’t think Ryan will have any issues with speed.
