Billys guitar live is pure savage!

Billy IS amazing live… He’s fucking flawless.

Haha, that last “did it all for you” bit honestly would have been perfect with the truncated scream from maynard. The tone was perfect. But when Billy, et. al. join in with a few more attempts to carry the note, that moment kinda loses it’s luster imo. 🙂
Still a nice recording and I’m glad that these will all be available as a digital release. I think it was a smart move on their part to not keep this all as the limited box set.

its cool they are doing it but maynard sounded quite a bit better from 2000 – 2004. they should of done this live stuff for the 2004 tour. but i will still enjoy this anyway, just M doesnt sound as good as he use to. was josh freeze on this ? thats another side of it even though hes not my fav drummer ever..but i liked him the most with apc for some reason compared to nin or whatever else hes been in

TOOL MAKING HEADWAY WITH NEW MATERIAL
A couple of weeks ago I visited the Tool loft to try and get some kind of idea as to how things were progressing with the writing sessions now that the band was back hard at it. Well, I am happy to report that there has indeed been a lot of progress as far as new material goes, especially with the lengthy so-called “epic’ piece that the guys have been arranging for quite some time now.
Shortly after I arrived, before taking to their respective instruments, Adam suggested that everyone should first have a listen to what they had recorded during the previous session in order to make sure that all were in agreement with certain recently added sections. And listen they did. In fact, to give you some idea – my parking meter expired twice before they were done. And judging from the smiles on their faces, it seemed that, for the most part, Danny, Adam and Justin liked very much what they were hearing and that after some finishing touches, the ‘epic’ tune would be ready for Maynard to do his thing. (During some of the more melodic passages, I was trying to envision the vocals which, to me, brings it all together.)
After a bit of discussion about some rapid-fire triplets in one section, I asked Danny if he was going to be able to knock out the piece in one take when it came time to track it? His response was to smile and bury his head in his hands, which I will let the readers interpret for themselves. As for the song itself, without giving too much away, it features complex time signatures, interesting harmonic structure and expanding effects processing – similar to what fans of Tool have come to expect – only now, perhaps not surprisingly, the band has taken it to the next level.
Okay, having given you this bit of an update, please note that I am NOT suggesting in any way that the band is ready to go into the studio any time soon. I honestly have no idea as far as any recording timetables go. I am also not sure how many other songs are near completion at this point. Nor do I know at what stage the vocals might be at for ANY of the new material. All I am saying is that as far as this one particular song goes (albeit, a very lengthy one), it was a LOT closer to being finished (instrumentally, speaking) than the last time that I heard it, and that fans of Tool’s music will certainly not be disappointed.

I imagine that this is the October newsletter although there is no header stating that it is so maybe we’ll be treated with this and an October newsletter? Either way this is good enough for me.
October 24, 2013 at 3:30 pm
Wow… this is actually really good news…. I wonder how long this fucking song is going to be? If they are pushing a serious epic then I hope we really are going to see a double album. That would be epic itself.
October 24, 2013 at 4:11 pm
Yeah, thanks for posting that tidbit. That is actually the best news any Tool fan could hope for. One can only wonder what the subject matter of the lyrics will be. Just to pull something out of my ass, I bet Maynard will lyrically summarize his life journey from being angry to finding love with his wife. I seriously think there will be some Tool-style love songs on this record and I’ve been saying that for years. And with three of them being newlyweds, why not?
Of course, they would be metaphorical songs about love, not “love songs.”
But I digress, that news is great news!

HAHA! I hope TOOL doesn’t turn into CREED but I have a lot of hope for the album. The long break seems to be making them eager. I wonder if Danny and Justin carried some instruments up on their fishing trip… maybe a tabla or two and an acoustic guitar or bass at least? I try to take my acoustic instruments everywhere if it’s for an extended period of time. When you have a bunch of acoustic instruments around and a few people that can play it gets real interesting.
