Re: Fear Inoculum

Has anyone else’s appreciation of 10K Days gone up massively since Fear Inoculum came out? FI is a good album, but overall it can’t hold a candle to 10K Days. What an absolute work of art that album is. I kinda wish they had just released 1-2 track EPs since 10k Days in order to make the most of May...

Re: Fear Inoculum

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZtGfbgIubyc&t=435s There was this slow guitar play by Adam right before Vicarious (starts around 06:10), ToolArchive also used it for his New Album Update video series. I expected it to be on Fear Inoculum, but I just couldn't find it. Could this be one of the other ...

Re: Fear Inoculum

Love the first 6 minutes of this track, including Maynard’s lyrics and vocals which I think are excellent. But the final four minutes don't do much to enhance the track. I find Maynard’s Grand Canyon copy and paste particularly frustrating (Exorcise the malady, poison for eternity vs witnessing the ...

Re: Fear Inoculum

I really can't make up my mind if I should listen to it or wait for the full album I’m not going to listen immediately. First of all I’m going to look out for other people to confirm if it is actually a brand new track called Fear Inoculum, or if it is just Descending with a different title and in ...

Re: Fear Inoculum

I immediately interpreted it in a more negative light, I.e. not to do with developing immunity as the end goal, but more that we are simply being infected with fear (in a cultural sense).

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I’m not even sure where they sell CD’s in my area anymore. I’m glad this cat is finally getting let out of the bag soon. Do you live in Mongolia or something? The whole "I don't know where they sell CD's" argument is really lame, like using Google search or online stores is a hard thing to do. Joop...

Re: Tool - is this their last album?

I’m fully anticipating this to be their last full album. I imagine the next couple of years will be touring, and then Adam Jones will labour over live albums/special anniversary editions/videos etc for the next decade plus. I think if we are lucky, inspiration may strike all of the band members and ...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

That review is almost certainly fake as a few days ago Danny was still on tour in Europe. And even if he was back ASAP, I doubt his number one priority after getting home would be to host a private listening party for one of his friend’s kids.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

The thing they do before Vicarious is wicked. They did it back in '17 when I saw them and I was wide eyed at how cool it was. Hopefully it finds its way onto the new album. Edit: Actually, they added something to it. Super cool. I can only assume it is part of a new song. I’ve just got back from th...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Seeing as release day is 30/08 I caved and took a listen to the new tracks (an excellent cleaned up version I found on reddit). Invincible - this is a very solid track. So far I have gone back and listened to this way more than Descending. There are some riffs that made me think - is this from third...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I'm actually starting to hope they don't play new music this tour if the album isn't coming out until July/August (which sucks). As much as I want to save it for release day, I know I will crack and watch all the mediocre youtube vids. Seems anticlimactic after 13 years of waiting.

Re: 10,000 Days Reminisced

I was a 16 y/o kid, had just got into Tool via hearing APC track “Passive” on the movie Constantine (cheers Keanu). Couldn’t find them on iTunes, got my tech savvy Chinese mate to install Limewire for me so I could download all of their tracks. Had no idea that a new album was coming out, one day wh...

If they did that then they would be able keep all of the profits from the sales of the Opiate music video & The Pot music video. I have read before that they have recorded most of ...

Danny and Justin are obviously done. Adam has probably finished the bulk of guitars and is now likely going back...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

So I had an interesting chat with one of my sources (who'd prefer to go unnamed) that Maynard has recorded part of the vocals, but will return to the studio in January to complete his parts. I believe the working title of one of the tracks (possibly the one Blair heard) is "Brain Mantis" - I very m...

Has the band already went through the musical adjustm...

Well I hope they re-master them for CD as well (or at least high quality digital release). Vinyl only would be a disappointment. Fingers crossed.

Re: How will Tool approach the design of the new album?

Anyone else think the new 'pyramid' backdrop during Descending might have something to do with the new album design direction? It was pretty damn impressive. I couldn't help but think it was a clue or a hint to something as the smoke on the horizon swirled around it....

Re: Tool Spring 2017 Tour (includes spoilers!)

No Euology again- was really hoping for it this time! Maynards voice was struggling compared to Rochester/Boston I thought. Lacklustre attempt at heavier sections in a few songs and pretty much gave up on a large section of Aenema. Sipping copious water and shaking his head a lot. Melodic sections w...

Re: Tool Spring 2017 Tour (includes spoilers!)

The sound last night was pretty decent - it was loud and there was a little bit of distortion but I guess this is standard for a festival setting. Maynard sounded way better than on the 2006/2007 tour (when he was barely audible) and as good as (if not slightly better) than the 2010 tour. It may hav...

For me, seeing that live would just be the epitome of Tool. I guess its too late to expect that on the upcoming tour as it doesn't exactly sound ...
