Infinity is the third solo album by Canadian musician Devin Townsend, and the first released under his real name. The album was released in October 1998 on Townsend's label, HevyDevy Records. After the completion of Strapping Young Lad's extreme metal album City and his solo progressive rock release Ocean Machine: Biomech, Townsend began to approach a mental breakdown.

Listen free to Devin Townsend – Infinity (Truth, Christeen and more). I remember once I had finished Ocean Machine and City, the idea of duality became a big thing for me. I began to find myself fascinated by the concepts of 'this and that' and 'yin and yang' (or whatever metaphors supported that idea). I realized that the things that were motivating me were (in hindsight) a relatively common 'coming-of-age' type of artistic view. I found myself engaging in drugs and relationships that were unhealthy, yet playing into the whole metaphoric.

Following quickly on the heels of the Ocean Machine – Biomech album of 1997, Infinity is the first album which was originally released by Devin Townsend as a solo project under his own name. As remarkable as the Ocean Machine project was, it is really on this first ‘proper’ solo project that Devin’s twisted genius for epic, progressive metal bears full fruit. Firstly, what intrigued me about Infinity was the intimate fusion Townsend had created between the guitars and keyboards. Listening to tracks such as Truth, Soul Driven, War and Dynamics demonstrates the puzzling qualities of the production, whereas it is often impossible to distinguish the two instruments apart. Secondly, another attribute of Infinity that struck me as interesting was the inability to detect the intricacies of the keyboards upon the first attempt to listen to the album.
