Music Monday: The Devin Townsend Band’s “Vampira”

Happy Halloween!

So, after four weeks of country-infused music, and then classical piano solos and a symphonic score, I decided to jar you all out of your complacency and remind you that my musical tastes do run the gambit, and it’s time to hit you with something heavy.

I decided to take advantage of the holiday, and what better way to do so than sharing with you THE CORNIEST, SILLIEST VIDEO I’ve ever seen? I mean, seriously: how can you top a grown man prancing around a fake graveyard in a devil suit, while singing with a fake curly mustache plastered on his face? The answer? YOU CAN’T.

You may recognize the name Devin Townsend, and it’s because back in 2014, I shared a song from one of his other musical projects, aptly named The Devin Townsend Project. This, however, is The Devil Townsend BAND, and despite the similarities of the names, the musical styles couldn’t be more different (at least for the purpose of these two songs). In fact, after you listen to “Vampira,” I dare you to click the link above and marvel at just how damn different those musical styles are. DARE YOU.

What’s the same? When Townsend isn’t screaming metal at the very end of the chorus of “Vampira,” his powerhouse, operatic singing still rocks the house.

So if you don’t like heavy metal, why should you listen to this song? Because the video’s hysterical, and it’s Halloween, and if you can’t have fun on Halloween, what’s the point? And did I mention the video features a grown man prancing around a fake graveyard in a devil suit, while singing with a fake curly mustache plastered on his face?

Yeah. The video is THAT silly. And the song is fun. So enjoy. 🙂

Like it? Love it? Hate it? Sound off below!

Reminder: Music Monday is about the music, not the videos. Videos are just the medium I’m using to share the music, and some videos aren’t actually videos at all. Enjoy the songs, but if YouTube forces you to watch some sort of advertisement before you can get to the music, please be patient.
