That’s right, and that’s awesome.
The Gathering’s erstwhile frontwoman Anneke Van Giersbergen is back in Devin Townsend’s capable clutches, recording vocals for the Canadian genius’ upcoming Epicloud album.
Anneke is currently recording her vocals at Devin’s studio in Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. She wrote in a Facebook posting: “Mister Devin Townsend is a genius. I cannot tell you how awesomely fantastic his album will be. Epic! Epic! Epic! And he made me do 20 hours of the loudest and most gorgeous vocals I’ve ever done.”
Anneke also collaborated with Devin on Addicted, and basically helped make that record supremely awesome.
“Epicloud: weirding out one gospel choir at a time since this afternoon, 2012,” says Devin online. “Anneke killing it, yet again…”
Epicloud will feature a re-recording of “Kingdom” from Physicist. Devin says “it’s a live set staple, and so much better now than the Physicist recording.”
Here’s the original. If he outdid this, I’ll be stunned.
