Squid, original bassist on the album, has MS unfortunately.

And now you're going feel bad about yourself for the rest of the day. :p

I didnít watch it in an ideal setting but I heard almost exclusively drums and vocals. Was it just my circumstances? The orchestra seemed largely non existent.

No you are pretty much spot on and that matches what other comments are saying too.

Yeah that mix is weird, very un-balanced. Lots of drums, that's for sure  :lol

Very weird mix. Snare and kick drums are very high. The orchestra and guitars are very low. The vocals are just right there in the middle, kind of like a Tool vocal mix where they don't standout.

I liked the mix and have no complaints. It's easily his best live sounding album yet. Even though Devin struggled with some songs, his performance was amazing. Deadhead and Bastard were even better than the RAH show. Well, it was worth every penny.

the kick/snare mix is really bugging me on this one. I know DT's mixes focus on drowning every instrument into this whole missmash of the whole thing, but here it's really sounding like KICK/SNARE and there's the rest of the song if you're listening close enough.

I'm really wondering what happened during the final stages of people listening to this mix and saying "this is good enough, we want this"

then again, SOA had the drums fucking loud in the mix as well..... might be a sign of the times..

Devin just tweeted that a 5.1 mix got bounced down to a stereomix. He's in the process of fixing the youtubemovie, as it was driving him crazy as well..

Hide Nowhere was amazing. Devin's singing really made me enjoy this song a lot more than the studio version.

Gaia is pretty awesome here, the orchestra is pretty crucial to this version of it, where as in By Your Command, it kind of isn't.  There are alot of pretty good orchesta moments though.

The drums are still pretty loud here even on my 5.1 headphones watching the dvd on my computer, but I'd say it really sounds good overall and has a live feel to it.  I only watched a few select songs and loved the screams in Stormbending, never heard Om before and thought it was aweseome, and as I mentioned, Gaia is pretty kick ass. 

So far, very impressed with this DVD.  I'd say I already like it more than RAL show, but it'll be hard to top The Retinal Circus for me.

If he fixes the youtube of By Your Command, it'll satisfy me unitl i can buy the blu-ray. This is a must buy for me, With Cramx saying the Orchestra is vital for Gaia then that makes me excited for hearing the rest of the set.

I bought the deluxe limited edition set. A very cool package, definitely worth the money. I watched the entire set and Iíd say itís his best concert film yet. Great setlist and performance. I was annoyed by the high level of the drums, but in a way this type of mix makes me feel like Iím actually there. I do remember one moment where Devin has a guitar solo (Deadhead) thatís literally bordering on being inaudible. But all in all, an excellent release.

It's pretty awesome that they actually performed Om in its entirety instead of just the intro. Such an awesome song that doesn't get much attention due to it getting shoved off onto a demo EP.
...in my opinion

What demo EP is that from?  This album is the only time I've heard it and I thought it was pretty awesome.

It's originally from the Christeen EP. There's also a version in the Contain Us box set, IIRC he wanted to rerecord it for Addicted but it didn't work out.

Yup, Christeen EP. There's a "re-recorded" version on the Contain Us box set but it doesn't get past the intro (similarly to how it's usually played live) so don't bother with that one.

Devin Townsend is pleased to announce a very special European ĎAn Evening Withí solo acoustic tour, beginning at the end of March 2019 and running through April. The intimate evenings will feature Devin performing tracks from across his catalogue, as well as taking part in a Q&A where fans will get to know more about what Devin is up to at this stage in his career and the forthcoming new album ĎEmpathí. This will prove to be a unique & special experience for all in attendance. He comments:
Hello everyone, Devin here. I have been busy making my newest recording, EMPATH over the past year. It has been a complicated and enlightening experience in that I have gone back to my roots in terms of what my motivations are for making music, in hopes that I am able to move forward as a musician being as true as I possibly can to my motivations. The result is an album that I am exceptionally proud of, one that is uncompromised and diverse in ways that accurately represent where Iím at now at the age of 46. The past decade of relentless touring with DTP had been something that caught up with me in a big way, and as a result I felt I needed to step back from that world and analyse myself and make this music before stepping onto a stage again. The time has come however for me to take the next step in my career, and when asked about how I would like to do so, I decided the first thing I would do was a very intimate run of shows that allows me to play my music stripped back to just me and a guitar. The shows are at nice venues, and includes a spoken word element with questions from the audience as well as aspects of my entire career represented in this one show.
Before I tour with a band again, I wanted to have the opportunity to play for you, and meet up with the people who not only have made my work possible, but inspire me to continue. In a world of computers and social media, to be stripped of all the bells and whistles is a very important step for my reintroduction to the live concert world. I truly hope youíll join me and I look forward to being the most honest I can be with you at these special shows.
Thank you to Andy Farrow and Northern Music, Thomas Waber and Inside Out records, as well as all who have supported me during this period. I have not been as proud of an album as I am of Empath in many years, and I really needed to get this out of my system.
See you at the shows.
Love
Devin Townsend

Sounds pretty cool for those who may be ale to catch this in Europe.  Love how he explains is rational for this.  Empath should come out in 2019 too so that's something to look forward to  :metal

Looks like he listed guests on his new album (from twitter):

Quote
Thanks to some further guests, Anneke Van Giersbergen, Che Dorval, Chad Kroeger, Mike Keneally, Steve Vai, Lords Of The sound orchestra... itís been total catharsis and tied intrinsically to the process of working through this transformation. Itís a lovely, complicated, weird one

Really happy to see Anneke still involved with him, Chad is definitely an interesting guest and got some negativity on the responses to his tweet about him.
