Strapping Young Lad was a Canadian band formed by Devin Townsend in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 1994. The band started as a one-man studio project; Townsend played most of the instruments on the 1995 debut album, Heavy as a Really Heavy Thing. By 1997, he had recruited permanent members; this line-up, which consisted of Townsend on vocals and guitar, Jed Simon on guitar, Byron Stroud on bass, and Gene Hoglan on drums, lasted until the band's dissolution.

  • It'll not happen, obviously, as Devy has no longer anything to rage about. I'd prefer a new band playing in the style of "City", and I dream of making a band playing in that style (without blatant copying, of course). But, that's hard, man. I don't know shit about making riffs, let alone Strapping's style riffs.

  • I want these guys to reform.
