I strongly believe Devin Townsend is the greatest all around musician alive. There's nothing this man cant do. Vocally he's just as amazing as is he at guitar and songwriting. He can scream, he can growl, and he can sing like a fucking bird. Devy would be a great vocalist if he was only capable of one of these styles but the fact that he has mastered all these different style is godly. His booming screams he does in SYL and some of his solo works make for very brutal and chaotic songs, his soaring singing vocals are always epic, and his soft vocals you hear on albums like Ki and Ghost are beautiful and soothing. Devin often uses vocal effects in his music but live he still sounds just as good as he does on record. This man is truly one of the greatest musicians the world has ever seen.
