Tool Album Behind Schedule
Tool appear to have completed more than half their new album recordings, but remain behind schedule. In March, drummer Danny Carey said the band would hit the studio in June or July, and guessed it would be complete within four months. Their last album "10,000 Days" was released in 2006, making this the biggest gap between album releases in their history. The new album update was posted by their webmaster, who is also a friend of the band a heard the new material while driving with Carey (via Noisecreep): "I heard a lot of new Tool music (sans [singer] Maynard James Keenan)," he said. "So, what did I think? Dare I say that it sounded like... Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope), and I assume that it will sound even more like Tool once the vocal melodies, etc. have been added." The webmaster can't say for sure how far into the recording they are. "If I had to GUESS, I would say more than half way (and keep in mind that in the past, at least, the writing went faster once the first few more complex songs were finished)." Back in March, Danny Carey added other details about the new album. He said bassist Justin Chancellor has been particularly prolific, and they're pushing themselves even harder to write to mind-bending time signatures. "It's kind of confusing sometimes, especially with some the riffs those guys come up with too - like in 13 or 21 or whatever, we have one in 17 that we're doing now," he said. Tool will play at Ozzfest Japan alongside Black Sabbath, Deftones, Slipknot, Slash and Stone Sour. Are you excited about the new Tool album? What's your favourite release of theirs so far?
