Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

God Damnit! You guys (Aussies) got 7empest! I'm jealous and happy for you guys at the same time! Anyone on this forum going to see them in Salt lake City? I've seen them 3 times since FI has come out and I have not been able to see Decsending or 7empest. I'm thinking of going and at the same time i...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Third Eye is a great opening song. Flood is good too. Flood into The Grudge back in the Lateralus tour days 2001/2002 was awesome. Fear Inoculum is a solid opening song on this tour though; I love it.

Finishing a show with Aenema has all 4 band members going hard right to the end.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Back in 2010 they closed with Lateralus into Aenema and I reckon it's a great way to finish their shows. The gig below is a good example. I think Stinkfist is better earlier in the night as it really gets the crowd going. Schism and Jambi are better in the middle somewhere. But Lateralus and Aenema ...

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

Maynard also said "You know it's raining really hard outside... Maybe we had something to do with that" or words to that effect before finishing with Stinkfist. The "Can we try that one more time" line was a nice touch at the end of 7empest. I know there's no footage of it yet but the first 5 minute...

Busty, the will play it or try it again 2nd night in Melbourne and 2nd night in Auckland. Brisbane is only getting one show so they'll pull out the big guns (Descending) and save 7empest for the good ol' 2nd night shows where possible, especially in this early stage of playing it live... it's still ...

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

While it was great to get the live debut of 7empest, it wasn't exactly their finest performance. Adam appeared to get lost about 2 minutes into his solo and Maynard didn't come back in to sing at the 10 minute mark. His lines "Disputing intentions invites devastation. A tempest must be true to its n...

There's usually another merch stand inside the main entrance at Qudos Bank Arena. The lines outside for the merch were incredibly long so I'd recommend going into the venue earlier if you can and hitting up the other merch stand.

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

We essentially got 14 songs last night; it was awesome. So many times I've seen the band do 10, 11 or 12 songs and walked away thinking "That was great but they could have played _____ " etc. Didn't feel like that last night. A comprehensive display. That was one of the best shows I've seen. Simple ...

So that Sydney show tonight was pretty epic; longest TOOL show I've seen. Band came on stage at 8:45pm and finished at 11:10pm. We got the regualr FI tour setlist including Descending but also The Pot and Part Of Me. The band sounded very tight and Maynard appeared to be in a good mood. Danny also d...

Two weekends ago our local cricket club had to cancel games because it was too hot ("extreme heat"), last weekend the games were rained out (wettest Sydney weekend since 1998) and this weekend games are back on... but for some reason parts of the club have no power. That's a nice snapshot of Austral...

I'm expecting the standard Fear Inoculum tour setlist in Perth tonight but I'm still hoping 7empest gets played at some point; they have played it in soundcheck a few times now. Very excite...

Danny said 12 minutes in his thank you speech; not even the drummer for the song itself knows how long that track is... All good though. So TOOL have now won Best Metal Performance three times (Aenema 1998, Schism 2002 and 7empest 2020) and trail only Metallica in this category (6 wins: https://en.w...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Yeah BUT we didn't help them or directly inspire them to write/create the song 7empest. Thanking your family, Joe Barresi and acknowledging drummers like Jon Bonham and Neil Peart makes sense if Danny's talking. He did thank people for voting and Justin did encourage others to just keep making aweso...

Fair call. It was more banter than bullying but I understand... perhaps he/she/they can earn it back by posting a pic of them at either a recent gig or an upcoming one.

Weakest songs? Have you ever tried playing along to it? Try keeping track of just the drumming. I'd love to see them pull off 7empest live. Justin Chancellor has described it as "epic" and Adam Jones says its his favourite track on the album. RATM drummer Brad Wilk heard an early version of it and p...

Or, how about the whole album in its entirety - only? No old songs at all. . I don't mind if we never see Culling Voices live. It sounds nice and I don't mind it but not at the expense of something like Jambi... which is fucking brilliant live these days. I think FI, Pneuma, Invincible, Descending ...

Justin actually sounded good doing You Lied back in 2011 down under here; it was a nice surprise on that tour. I think JC (Justin Chancellor, not the big fella Jesus Christ) might be needed for backing vocals live right at the end of 7empest as Maynard cannot sing his lyrics the way he's written the...
