Devin Townsend (born May 5, 1972) composed the battle and ambient music for the Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel soundtrack.


Early life

After performing in a number of metal bands in high school, Townsend was discovered by a record label in 1993 and was asked to perform lead vocals on Steve Vai's album "Sex & Religion". After recording and touring with Vai, Townsend was discouraged by what he found in the music industry, and vented his anger on a solo album released under the pseudonym "Strapping Young Lad". He soon assembled a band under the name, and released the critically acclaimed City in 1997. Since then, he has released three more albums with Strapping Young Lad, along with solo material released under his own independent record label, HevyDevy Records.


Townsend's solo albums, a diverse mix of hard rock and progressive metal, have featured a varying lineup of supporting musicians. In 2002 he formed The Devin Townsend Band, a dedicated lineup which recorded and toured for two of his solo releases.

Behind the scenes

  • In the Fallout 3 add-on Broken Steel, the player can find a terminal called "Maintenance Department Terminal" in the utility tunnels on the way to Adams Air Force Base. Maintenance entry AK197833, the last on the list, finishes with the words "This is only high school bullshit. I'm lost, I'm freaking, and everybody knows... everybody's watching". These are lines taken from "Detox", probably Strapping Young Lad's most well-known song. The initials of the entry's author are "D.T."; Devin Townsend.
