DEVIN TOWNSEND BAND drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has issued the following update:
"We got another full length MP3 for you all to check out from TERROR SYNDROME [Ryan's solo project].
"'Riot of Red' has just been posted on our TERROR SYNDROME MySpace page. It's a thrashy, in-your-face, catchy metal tune and it features an insane guest guitar solo from Christofer Malmström from DARKANE and NON-HUMAN LEVEL. We've had lots of feedback on this song (part of the second medley we posted) from a lot of you listeners out there and that is why we chose this song to be the next full-length MP3.
"Thanks for all the support you've shown us since releasing some of our music on our MySpace page a month ago. It's been pretty overwhelming and we appreciate it. We're nearing the end of finishing our album. Still some mixing to be done and mastering then we hope to have the album done and ready for release by summer 2007. We're also in negotiations for playing a show or two in the near future, possibly with some already touring label acts, more details will be released when any show is confirmed. We'll keep you posted, so stay posted! Enjoy 'Riot of Red' for now, hope it kicks ya' square in the balls or 'gina!
"As for my session drumming news, the band FABER DRIVE have now released some songs on Canadian radio, their first single is the song 'Second Chance'. USA radio won't be far behind. They are signed to 604 Records in Canada and Universal Records in the USA. The music is straight-up catchy pop rock. I did the session drumming for three songs with Chad Kroeger (NICKELBACK), Brian Howes (CLOSURE, HINDER) and Joey Moi (NICKELBACK, THEORY OF A DEADMAN) producing. This stuff is hooky as hell and I'm sure it will do very well. All the best to FABER DRIVE! I also just finished recording a full length album for TIM STEINRUCK, a local Vancouver artist. We recorded the drums at one of Vancouver's best studios — the Armoury Studios. The 11 drum tracks were laid down in just over a day. You can say I was well-prepared for this session. The music is hard rock and again some really catchy stuff with some cool drumming. Devin Townsend is going to guest-produce a song for this album as well."
