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 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!

HASH(0x9604f2e8) 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!

HASH(0x9604f33c) étoiles sur 5 It begins... 13 septembre 2003
Par Wheelchair Assassin - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: CD
Before the utter masterpieces "City" and "SYL," there was this rampaging slab of industrial-metal madness from the great Devin Townsend. It was here that Devin began to establish himself as metal's answer to Mike Patton, in terms of both vocal prowess and musical diversity. This may be a metal album, but it also shows the early signs of Devin's genre-bending tendencies. Like most great albums, it not only exemplifies its genre but also busts conventions to create something truly unique.
The sound of "HAARHT" can best be described as a sort of barely controlled insanity, with equal parts aggression and catchiness combined to form one of the most potent sounds in recent history. The opening one-two punch of "S.Y.L." and "In The Rainy Season" is a perfect summation of Strapping Young Lad's musical mission. Both songs reach a grindcore-esque level of speed and intensity, but if you listen closely enough you can hear melodies emerging from the sonic carnage, making things go down just a bit easier.
From there, the album branches out in some surprising directions, but it manages to remain firmly rooted in metal at the same time. Devin's voice is all over the map here, ranging from ear-piercing shrieks to fearsome death howls to something that actually bears some resemblance to singing. And in the grand tradition of Fear Factory and Ministry, samples and industrial beats are used often enough to make the album interesting, but not so much that they become tiresome or distracting.
Perhaps most importantly, "HAARHT" provides convincing evidence of the demented songwriting genius that would only become more apparent on SYL's subsequent albums. "Goat" slows things way down from the first two songs, but doesn't soften the album up one bit; the slower tempo merely serves to drive the steamrolling heaviness into you even harder. The Ministry-style "Cod Metal King" actually shows an admirable grasp of dynamics, moving from mid-tempo and subdued (by Devin's standards, anyway) to all-out headbanging fury without warning. "The Filler-Sweet City Jesus" has one of the most addictive guitar riffs in history, hands down. "Happy Camper (Carpe B.U.M.)" and "Drizzlehell" are quite possibly the most manical compositions in Devin's catalog, propelled by harsh vocals and vicious grooves that make the mirrors in my car vibrate (or maybe I just need new tires).
Metal lovers everywhere definitely owe a debt to Devin Townsend. Along with Meshuggah, the Dillinger Escape Plan, Soilent Green, and a few other bands, Strapping Young Lad are ensuring that the genre stays intriguing as it moves into the new millenium. If you consider yourself any kind of metal fan, you need this album. And if you don't like it, you're lame.

HASH(0x9604f774) 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.

HASH(0x9604fb40) étoiles sur 5 A Screaming, Stomping, Monster of Pain! 18 février 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com

Ever heard that Steve Vai album several years back with the freaky vocalist who sounded very different than others in the genre? Well this would be his own band & WHOA is it freaky! This mosh masterpiece is one of those albums that comes along every now & then that just absolutely SMASHES you like a diesel crushes a small mammal! My personal favorites are S.Y.L. which chorus' rage with "I F#%*ING HATE YOU!!! (repeat with furious intensity 8x) A song that from what I can tell, (no lyric sheets : ( ) is about the evils of the Corporate world. (i.e. using people, favoritism, facist uniformity, backstabbing, etc.) The other is DEFINITLY "Happy Camper". This song is so insane & ferociuos that I literally just sat there staring at the speakers like "DA------MMM!" So, if you're angry that Metallica sucks now & maybe you're wanting to vent because you're chasing that dream/nightmare of climbing the corporate ladder (good luck) buy this album, sit down in your lazy-boy, and let the soothing sounds of Devin & Strapping Young Lad ease your anxieties & bring your stress level down a bit with their brand of Metal Core/Industrial/Grind mayhem! Enjoy.

strapping young lad has to be one of the best bands i have ever heard. so diverse musically that nearly every song sounds different. deven townsend is truly a genius. as heavy as a really heavy thing is a smorgasboard of hardcore,speed metal,techno, and even toutches on death and black metal at times. its music for everyone! all at the same time! this is a really great cd.s.y.l.,goat,skin me, and drizzlehell, stand out among the rest, although the entire cd is completely awesome. you gotta hear this one, its a monument in new music.
