Townsend tracklists unveiled?

Devin Townsend drummer Ryan Van Poederooyen has completed studio duties on the two albums which will make up the highly-anticipated Z2 project, he's confirmed.

And he’s revealed what might be the tracklists for both discs.

Townsend funded the sequel to 2007’s Ziltoid The Omniscient with a crowdfunding campaign that generated more than 500% of the total he’d aimed for. Last year he confirmed his Ziltoid show on TeamRock Radio was part of the Z2 project.

Now Van Poederooyen reports: “A personal record is complete – two albums recorded in two days. One is space metal, absolutely crazy and technical. The other is heavy with some cool grooves and riffs.

“What an experience – that I hope to never revisit again! Ready to fly home and sleep for a week.”

The drummer posted a picture online containing two tracklists, although they could contain working titles rather than finished song names.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band, a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
