Tool to begin recording fifth album in April

Posted by AP on 19/02/18

Although one has learned to be careful with updates regarding the elusive fifth studio album from Tool, which has been forthcoming for several years now, recent updates seem to suggest that the alternative/progressive metal group’s disciples finally have a reason to get excited. In a series of tweets this past weekend, vocalist Maynard James Keenan revealed that he is “100% DONE on all but 1” of the new songs in terms of lyrics and vocal melodies.


And following those tweets, guitarist Adam Jones confirmed that recording will start in April and used the opportunity to share the thoughts of Sebastian Bach, who recently visited Tool in the studio, regarding what he heard there:


This is not just your average simple rock and roll music. This is progressive metal at its most atmospheric and right when you get into a groovy trance you get beat over the head with riffs so heavy it feels like a Tool. Some tunes were so pummelling it felt like I was getting a deep tissue massage! In fact they could call the record that. No song was shorter than 7 minutes and some were 20 minutes long!

The most recent album from Tool is their 2006 effort “10,000 Days”, which we reviewed here.
