* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition:
** The Strapping Young Lad vinyl box set, which, if you're even remotely a fan, is amazing. It was released in four different editions, each of which had more material than the preceding tier (in addition to being coloured differently). All versions of the box set are now sold out. The vinyl masters also decreased the LoudnessWar tendencies of Strapping's material (although the clipping on ''Heavy'' and ''The New Black'' couldn't be completely eliminated due to the master tapes apparently having been lost). The LP editions of the individual albums are still available, although they're almost sold out of the label (Blood Music)'s U.S. store. The bonus material included with the box set will not be sold individually.
** There was also a CD box set of the first four Devin Townsend Project albums (the latter two of these being remastered, as the original mixes hadn't been to Townsend's satisfaction) along with two discs of bonus material and (with some releases) a 10" with two additional songs.

* ReligionRantSong: For a metal musician, he doesn't engage in these much, but "Heaven's End" takes a firm stance against organised religion. Townsend commented:
--> The lyrics in "Heaven's End" I found (to my surprise) were very against religion. Not against the sense of infinity or spiritual connection, definitely not atheist, but angry at organized religion. The cruelty and divisiveness of it. Seeing the environment and life from a sense of unity stemming from my experiences recently with different perspectives really made me surprise myself at how bitter I'd become towards it all. I have always been kind of "on the fence" about religion, so when ''Ki'' finally lets it rip on "Heaven's End", I found myself shocked that a lot of my anger was actually directed towards THAT as a theme. It was so typical, yet it seemed understandable… that anyone or any organization can claim ownership of the things that I've always felt profoundly attracted to, yet more than anything, just happy to be a part of, seemed the height of arrogance, and above all…exclusionary and really mean spirited. The experience made me realize during the process that 'perhaps the anger within me is not directed at anything other than a misdirection of spiritual intensity'… people had been born and had died in my life, I had hurt my friends and band mates, I was confused, but it seemed that through the purging of this I was coming to some conclusions, and purging some baggage was necessary. Religion was first on the list.
** "More" also attacks both materialism and organised religion. On the other hand, some of ''Epicloud'' also comes across as sincerely spiritual.

* CuteLittleFangs: Well, the "cute" part is debatable, but he [[http://en.metalship.org/photos_live/concert4521_3.jpg has them]] either way.

** The song "Deconstruction" ends with Devin burping into the microphone.

** Which doesn't stop the record from being awesome, though. Something you'd expect considering there's musicians like [[Music/{{Opeth}} Mike Akerfeldt]], [[Music/{{Nightwish}} Floor]] [[AfterForever Jansen]], [[Music/{{Meshuggah}} Fredrik Thordendal]], {{Music/Gojira}}'s Joe Duplantier, {{Music/Cynic}}'s Paul Masvidal, and {{Music/Emperor}}'s Music/{{Ihsahn}} among other ones.
