Vancouver's Strapping Young Lad were extreme proponents of industrial thrash metal, a heavier version of Cop Shoot Cop and Fear Factory. After the tentative Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing (1995), they matured with the huge and super-heavy sound of City (1997), that included the frantic All Hail the New Flesh.

Their frontman Devin Townsend launched a new project with Ocean Machine: Biomech (1997), followed by Infinity (1998), Physicist (2000), Terria (2001), Accelerated Evolution (2003).

The comeback of Strapping Young Lad (after six years) was rather uninspired, first with the mediocre Strapping Young Lad (Century Media, 2003) and then with the passable Alien (Century Media, 2005) and The New Black (2006).

Gli Strapping Young Lad di Vancouver erano paladini estremi dell'industrial thrash metal, una versione più pesante di Cop Shoot Cop e Fear Factory. Dopo l'incerto Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing (1995), maturarono con il sound immenso e superpesante di City (1997), che conteneva la frenetica All Hail the New Flesh.

Il cantante Devin Townsend lanciò un nuovo progetto con Ocean Machine: Biomech (1997), seguito da Infinity (1998), Physicist (2000), Terria (2001), Accelerated Evolution (2003).

Il ritorno degli Strapping Young Lad (dopo sei anni) fu abbastanza scialbo, prima con il mediocre Strapping Young Lad (Century Media, 2003), poi con il passabile Alien (Century Media, 2005) e con The New Black (2006).
