About this album

In an interview with Soundwave TV, Devin stated about how Epicloud was conceived, “In this sort of process of writing that I’ve discovered that I guess I’m capable of now, with a sober frame of mind, part of that is just not second-guessing it, so if I write something like that, I just do it, and just finish it.”
He continued, “Over the past couple of years, I thought, ‘OK, I’ve gotta write this next ‘Ziltoid’ thing; I’m inspired to make this epic space opera and, like, really overdo it, and really dark. And so I sat down to write, but every time I went to write, I’d write some poppy hard rock thing. And I was like, ‘OK, we’ll get that one out of the way and then I’ll write ‘Ziltoid’.’ And I got it out of the way and I’d go write ‘Ziltoid’. And I’d write another one. So I’m thinking, ‘OK, it’s pretty obvious to me that I’ve got this that wants to come out before that.’”

Regarding the musical direction of Epicloud, Devin told Noisecreep, “Over the course of the full record, there’s sort of new agey stuff, jazzy stuff, really heavy stuff. We basically cover the gamut. Epicloud is the first record that I felt confident enough to include all those things on one record so it goes between melodic hard rock to schizophrenic heavy metal to country to really ambient stuff and it’s all in one place. I’m using a gospel choir, a string section and a horn section for this one as well.”
