** "Info Dump", the last song from Strapping Young Lad's 'Alien', has to be one of the most unnerving uses of white noise to date. Couple that to the ever-growing loudness curve and the scream in the end, and you get a really disturbing aural experience.
** Speaking of screams in the end, the ear-piercing shriek at the end of "Things Beyond Things" from 'Ocean Machine' will leave you in shambles. The effect is compounded due to the album being in the softer side of Devin's work.

** Even if he won't acknowledge it as one of his best albums, "Namaste" in ''Physicist'' can make you headbang for the entire song.

* HilariousInHindsight or FunnyAneurysmMoment: Perhaps depending upon one's political views, the lines "You're a puppet / I'm a puppet / We are all puppets" from "Color Your World" can be examples of one or the other after the infamous "No puppet! No puppet! You're the puppet!" exchange from Donald Trump's debates with Hillary Clinton.

* NarmCharm: The chorus of "Stagnant" is incredibly cheesy ("And I feel it in my [=heeeEEEEEeeeeEEAAAAADD=]! Wooooo..." but the song still manages to be great despite (or because) of it.

** "S.Y.L" from Strapping Young Lad's debut album ''Heavy As A Really Heavy Thing''. It starts with a rather cute sounding child telling a story about a bear eating children and suddenly gets overtaken by an eerie droning followed by loud metallic banging until we hear electric sounds accomponied by Devin screaming as loud as he can. The first verse is particularly chilling, not helped by Devin's aggressive, raspy vocals.

* ArchivePanic: Has ''definitely'' reached this status with the gigantic discography seen on the main page, especially when one keeps in mind that many of these albums (e.g. ''Epicloud'', ''Transcendence'', ''Casualties of Cool'', probably others) have been given special editions with bonus discs that are around as long as the albums they accompany.

* ToughLove: Devin's manager Andy Farrow had to do a lot of this to him to get him out of his latest CreatorBreakdown. He describes it in detail in his interview with ChrisJericho.

* HellIsThatNoise: "Info Dump" from ''Alien'' is a twelve-minute endurance test of how much electronic sounding noise and guitar feedback you can take. It's completely unsettling due to its very grinding and schizophrenic sounding last three minutes. (It also has a repeated, and rather unsettling, Morse code phrase underneath most of it).
%%** Possibly "Relentless", "Oh My Fucking God", "All Hail the New Flesh", "Detox", "Rape Song" and "Shitstorm" for Strapping Young Lad.
%%** The entire ''Devlab'' album.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Zimmer's Hole, not the least of which due to the overlap in musicians with Strapping, but also E.Val seems to be channeling Devin's vocals, to the point some fans thought it really ''was'' Devin.
