Band Name Strapping Young Lad. Album Name Alien. Type. Album (Studio full-length). Proposed track "Whats New, Pussycat?" a Tom Jones cover was taken off of the album at the last minute because the band thought it didn't fit with the flow of the album. 500 copies were made.

Strapping Young Lad’s fourth Alien album outing marked a landmark in my forays not only into Metal but across the board. Since listening to this its marked a falling of the scales, an epiphany and other normally tackily teenaged phrases aboot music and has actually changed my life (for the better). I think that SYL isn’t going to be for everybody at the end of the day and I accept that some people think that the lyrics are one dimensional and puerile.

Strapping Young Lad- a name uttered so often by Canadian metal fanatics, yet a name so ignored by the vast majority of music lovers. Formed in 1995, SYL has always been the brainchild of musical deviant Devin Townsend. After contributing soaring vocals to Steve Vai’s Sex and Religion album, Townsend needed a release. He was prone to extreme mood swings (a condition which was later diagnosed as bipolarity), and nothing seemed to vent his angst and anger better than music. So came the first Strapping Young Lad album, a maelstrom of dissonance mixed with harmony.
