Imonolith / ex-Devin Townsend Project drummer Ryan van Poederooyen has posted Episode 6 of his Live Feed Fridays - Episode 6. This time it's DTP's "Ziltoidian Empire" live in Montreal, Quebec at Club Soda in 2014.
Ryan: "This song has a lot of twists and turns in it. A lot of odd time signatures, double bass and creative drum fills. Some of the reasons I chose this performance:
- I always enjoyed playing this song live because it had a lot of fun drumming and was challenging to play. If I were to mess up in one of the time signature parts, everything could turn into a train wreck... so it was a good challenge.
- We played in Montreal, Quebec at this venue called Club Soda. I love playing there and Montreal Fans are always loud and proud!
- You'll see in this video that Beav and I always had fun live, making faces at each other. We always kept it fun live.
- You'll also see at one point of the video Devin comes up and makes these faces while he's playing, I started laughing and 'altered' the drum part I was playing because I was laughing at Dev. Haha. I gave my drum tech a little smirk after it happened too. You can see it all in the video. Good times were always had in the DTP!"
