ce premier album de strapping young lad est vraiment dingue! devin townsend fait tout sur cet album: composition, production, interprétation...et alors ca donne quoi? c'est tout simplement indescriptible. personne n'avait sortit un truc pareil auparavant: une sorte de métal violent avec une sauce indus assourdissante. oui,c'est très bourrin,mais c'est loin d'être du gros n'importe quoi!
l'album commence avec une voix d'enfant,puis des bruitages pour mettre l'ambiance.S.Y.L. commence,et cette chanson est vraiment dingue de chez dingue,jamais vous n'entendrez ca ailleur!
l'ambiance de l'album est violente et froide.écoutez la chanson happy camper,c'est surement la plus violente des chansons de strapping,et je pense que j'ai jamais entendu un son aussi brutal.en 3 minutes,devin nous hurle exactement 666 mots. tiens tiens...et en parlant d'hurler,sachez que ce charmant chanteur possède un style de chant que lui seul possède,[...]
le heavy de strapping young lad est une chose vraiment vraiment lourde...et franchement tant mieu,on se pleint pas!
après ce premier album,devin townsend ira encore plus loin avec son chef-d'oeuvre: city.

Un album inhumain,limite inaudible.Mais qui pourtant se savoure de la première à la dernière seconde sans sourciller!Niveau musique on nage dans l'indus,le thrash et des vocaux extrêmes et déchirants de la part du sieur townsend,qui délivre ici toute sa folie intérieur.
Les grattes sont de sorties,tout comme les machines,et le résultat fait peur.Très peur!
Comme le thrash des 80's,syl réinvente le metal dans ce qu'il a de plus sauvage et bestial sur ce disque qui à l'époque fit figure d' ovni dans le paysage musical.
Très mal vendu à sa sortie,"heavy as a really heavy thing" est désormais un album culte pour tout fan de musiques brutales qui se respecte!
à l'époque devin disait:"je fais du white metal,car je suis à l'inverse de la mentalité des groupes norvégiens!""bizarrement",le résultat ne sonne pas si positif que ça...mais de la part de l'auteur de "ocean machine",il faut bien qu'il y ait un paradoxe!
En bref,un album de taré qui calme bien les nerfs,tout en vous détruisant les cervicales!Fou.Complétement fou!

Un album de cinglé, de schizophrène, d'aliéné mental...voilà la réaction que l'on a suite à l'écoute de ce premier opus de SYL. Probablement moins musical que "City", mais encore plus dégénéré et malsain, Devin crache une haine et un malaise de jeunesse qui prend aux tripes et joue avec nos nerfs.

La souffrance émanant des vocaux déments mais tellement naturels de "Goat" ou "Skin Me" sont comme un épanchement de violence qui ne trouverait jamais sa propre fin, qui continuerait indéfiniment à diluer sa folie pure.

D'obédience fortement industriel, la musique se veut lourde, sale et mécanique, ne laissant aucune place à l'humanité mais sentant pourtant profondément la folie du psyché humain ("COD Metal King", "S.Y.L").
Un sentiment de domination hypnotique émane de ce disque complètement différent de ce que produira par la suite le génial canadien...une impression de perdre pied, de ne plus posséder le contrôle de sa propre existence, de s'oublier sous cette avalanche de brutalité.

Un opus à ne clairement pas mettre entre toutes les mains, car là où Alien et City sont de phénoménaux albums musicaux et barrés, Heavy As A really Heavy Thing s'éloigne de la musique pour se pencher vers la bande son apocalyptique d'un massacre suicidaire...comme la dernière vision qu'aurait un homme face à sa dernière victime!

Got bad a$$ songs in this album but it dont sounds like it's remastered.I always play my albums in the PlayStation 3 with suround sounds pluged in it and every thing sounds pefect with it on... but for some odd reason it's hard to hear the vocals because the bass is too loud. The 4 bonus tracks are awsome! i would rate this album a 5 out of 5 but the auido is not good.
4.0 étoiles sur 5 Devy metal, anyone? 23 octobre 2014
Par A. Stutheit - Publié sur Amazon.com
The obvious source of inspiration for such off-the-wall metal groups as Cephalic Carnage, Unexpect, Fantomas, The Dillinger Escape Plan, and Gojira, Strapping Young Lad are easily one of the (if not THE) funniest and zaniest things to happen to the world of extreme metal since the days of Meshuggah, Mr. Bungle, Mike Patton, and Naked City. They started out as, essentially, a one-man supergroup, as frontman Devin Townsend plays virtually every instrument in the book (including guitar, most keyboards, programming, and production), but here he gets more than a few helping hands on SYL’s debut, 1995’s “Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing.” (There is a plethora of guest musicians present, here, including a trio of drummers.)

Devy has definitely been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, and he sure lets it show, here. Note that I said “disorder” and not “disability,” because as a result of said disease, the dude comes up with some of the most extremely great and memorably dynamic music that one can imagine. “H.A.A.R.H.T.” is a cyber/industrial-grind album, meaning it owes every bit as much to the likes of Ministry and Fear Factory as it does to, say, Napalm Death and the aforementioned Naked City. The end result is a chaotic and eccentric (to say the very least) mix of sounds. So for every grinding blast, monster riff, and brutal pig squeal, present, here, there is also at least the same amount of dub-step beats, techno-beat loops, samples, and synthesizers.

At its heaviest, it is a tumultuous exercise in all-out calamity; but at its softest, it is restrained, docile, and even borderline rhythmic. Cuts like the brutal opener, “S.Y.L.,” are furious blasts of barely controlled chaos with very little melodies to speak of. They motor ahead with foaming-at-the-mouth vocals, blistering riffing, and pummeling drums. And “Happy Camper (Carpe BUM)” is another three minutes of uncompromising, unbridled, unrelenting fury, a savage, grindcore-worthy beat-down of blasting drums, maniacally high-pitched screaming, and tempos that will require listeners everywhere to be prescribed a neck brace. It just oozes with viciously thrashing grooves and brutal instrumental interplay.

On the flip side, though, there is also plenty of restrained industrial rock-like material. Take “Cod Metal King,” for one example. It is an early Ministry/KMFDM-flavored industrial/dance metal boogie with a heavy use of synthesizers, beeping bass lines, and repetitive, programmed-sounding drum beats. And the vocals, meanwhile, consist mostly of the distorted and electronic-heavy style. “The Filler: Sweet City Jesus” and “King Me” are two other techno-industrial-lite numbers. One boasts an addicting, staccato guitar riff, squealing keyboards, and faint backing vocals to create a really trippy and ethereal atmosphere; whereas the other is a borderline danceable tune, what with its groovy guitar/bass riffs, chugging rhythms, and rhythmic, Skinny Puppy-like beats.

The remainder of the record falls somewhere in between these two styles described in the above songs. “Goat” offsets its alleged use of Chris Meyers-donated keyboard flourishes with chunky, lurching riffs, snarly, growly vocals, and strong, grumbling bass lines, while “Drizzlehell” lays harsh, dissonant vocals over thrashy guitar licks and brutal, adherent grooves that make your speakers shake and floors rumble. And the amusing, set-closing joke song, “Satan’s Ice Cream Truck,” is also of note, as it is a silly, children’s lullaby-sounding tune with hilarious vocals, vibes, techno-industrial-like keyboards, and noteworthy bass lines.

But it is “Critic” that is actually a better representation of “Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing,” as a whole. It is another slab of psychotic cyber-industrial-grind-metal with memorable (and often even borderline catchy) thrash riffs. It boasts a tour-de-force on the vocal front, too, as Devy definitely pushes his pipes to the limit, here; but the track is actually mostly of note for the way it explodes from mid-tempo grooves to brutal, headbanging, neck-aching fury without warning.

“Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing” never -- and I mean NEVER -- locks into any kind of cohesive groove for the listener to latch on to and sink their teeth into, but that is part of its charm. So while things like accessible hooks and organic-sounding musicianship might be a thing of the past, here, it is still a very strong release, and auspicious debut. And while it may not be as mind-blowing as Strapping Young Lad’s sophomoric effort, 1997’s “City,” or 2005’s “Alien,” it is nevertheless recommended for all objectively-minded fans of heavy music.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Why can't this happen more often? 20 mai 2006
Par Barry Lee Dejasu - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
For over ten years now, Strapping Young Lad's debut was as stripped as can be. "Eh" production quality, only 9 songs that stretched only seconds shy of 40 minutes long, and a photo-heavy booklet that included NO lyrics whatsoever (something that annoys me more than anything else with CDs). Granted, it was a GOOD album, but these things left much to be desired.

And now, this has emerged.

This is exactly what this album needed. The production has been remastered, giving the album a lot more punch to its heaviness - and with a band like Strapping Young Lad, heaviness is a MUST. There are four bonus tracks, making the album over 56 minutes long now! And best of all, THERE ARE LYRICS NOW! And not just lyrics to all the songs, but even to the bonus tracks (a rare thing in and of itself with special editions of albums)! There's also a enhanced video clip for "S.Y.L.," which is a nice bonus. What a deal! There's also a really nice introduction from Devin Townsend in the booklet, telling the story of SYL's inception and the coming-about of this album in a manner that is as funny as it is informative.

About the bonus tracks: the first of them is the hilariously goofy and heavy "Satan's Ice Cream Truck," with a silly vocal performance, tasty crunch-riffs in the choruses, and a bizarre guitar solo that would sound better in a polka group. "Japan" is epic-feeling, with choruses composed of soaring vocals and waves of riffs, feeling more like something off of CITY or SYL. "Monday" is previously unreleased (well, officially anyway), and is a nice industrial-tinged piece, with Devin making a great singing-turning-into-screaming performance over a building storm of melodic riffs, very reminiscent of his Ocean Machine work. "Exciter" is recorded to sound like it was recorded live (or maybe it really *was* live?), a refreshing cover of the famous Judas Priest song (I never really cared for it until now).

I've found a whole new appreciation for this album. SYL have always been a great and unusual metal band, even way back in "the day." Any shortcomings you might have once thought HEAVY... had are gone: buy this, and listen to the album as it should have been!

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Absolutely classic 2 janvier 2005
Par The Pitiful Anonymous - Publié sur Amazon.com

Considering who the genious Devin Townsend and his music have become as of now, I would call this a classic record. It's one of the most insane, heavy, loud, and hilarious metal records I have. His production skills improved drastically, but the bad production is actually part of the character of this release. The opener "SYL" is one of my favorite openers ever, great lyrics. "In the Rainy Season" shows you Devin's manic depressive side, and the lyrics talk about him on the edge of a breakdown. The intensity he puts into the vocals make the song seem so frantic and desperate that when the slower melodic ending section comes in there's a chill down my spine. This has got to be one of the best SYL songs ever written. "Goat" is a fun song with surprising good lyrics and samples of goats. "Cod Metal King" has a lot of attitude and style and a Ministry style beat. "Happy Camper" is the loudest song, ever. I don't know how it's possible to make your voice sound like this, it's unreal... this one you have to hear for yourself. Favorite part is the middle section with Devin yelling a string of insults while the band thrashes so loud you can barely hear him. Devin's various speeches and soundclips are what gives this album it's feel. "Critic" is a straight ahead metal song, and a great one at that. "Filler (Sweet City Jesus)" is an atmospheric, moody, and totally insane heavy song. As someone else said, it's somewhat like something from Ocean Machine, but much too reckless. "Skin Me" is a rhythmic distorted track with weird lyrics. "Drizzlehell" is plain hilarious, and if you read the words, you'll notice that there's something about Elvis and country dogs... and if listen to the song again, there's a section where you can barely make out Devin saying a bunch of stuff in a redneck accent, where he says these things. Where else can you hear a distorted, electronic voice screaming "GIMME SOME OF YOUR GOOD LOVIN". The song ends with Devin as a child saying "and that's the end of my story". The secret song "Satan's Ice Cream Truck" is hilarious too... awesome slide whistle.

Pick this up. It's got a lot more humor than everything he's done since, and is just a whole lot of fun.
