As Blair promised, Danny has featured in the latest Paiste Magazine, where he talks about a range of drumming, Volto! and Tool topics:
So, you guys are back in writing mode right now?
Yes…Justin, Adam & I are working on some stuff and Maynard will join us in another month or so, once he finished up with his ‘other band’. We’d like to get in the studio by May or June and holpefully get our new record done by the fall…we’ll see how things go. Right now, we’re throwing riffs around and seeing what feels good. So far, it’s turning out to be a bit more on the heavier side…Adam is really rockin’ out, so it’s exciting.
I’m a big fan of heavy Tool, so that works just fine for me. Thanks to Mike for directing me to the interview!
Update: You can download a PDF copy of the magazine here.
I agree on the heavy!!
I’d like to put out there that Mr. Josh Freese has an interview in there too. No talks about APC, though.
On the heavier side = Fuckin’ awesome.
I wasn’t anticipating a heavy album. I’ll be happy if this comes to fruition.
that site is annoying, i can’t really read the article too well it just stays blurry when I zoom in
Before 10,000 Days came out and the media was hounding them, Danny too mentioned that the album would be their heaviest one yet. Citing Meshuggah as an influence, especially in the song Jambi. That song sucked. I hope it’s not heavy heavy with guitar voiceboxes and shit. Just keep it heavy and stripped raw like ‘Hooker with a Penis’- none of this artsy bullshit.
Heavier album sounds good to me! Tool never writes anything bad so I won’t be disappointed.
someone should post the rest of the interview cause i cant read it. Never focuses.
lol @ “heavy”, is tool getting all fatty
I like heavy Tool as well. Undertow kinda heavy though, not just a bunch of palm mutes kinda heavy.
Heavy!!! Take this for what it’s worth, as I’m not trying to say anything for sure, but I’m pretty sure I heard a couple of minutes of rehearsals of the new album. When I went to the 2/3 show in Hampton, VA, I got to the venue a few hours early. I went in to try to use a bathroom, and heard a couple minutes of sound check through the walls in the ticket buying area. I can’t obviously confirm whether it was new material or just jamming, but it sounded heavy, even sludgy, and it was pretty cool sounding.… Read more »
He is so amazing. Keep the videos and interviews coming.
You can downoad the entire Magazing as a PDF right from the site. Makes it much easier to read plus you can keep it 😉
Easier said than done, as the interview isn’t in a format that can be copied and pasted.
As pointed out though you can download the PDF, which you can find here: http://www.paiste.com/magazine/PAISTE_magazine_highres.pdf
Soooo, looks like a 2012 release might be possible, however unlikely. +1 on the heavier, as long as it’s balanced.
CHOOSING THE rIGHT TOOL FOr THE GIG when watching a great basketball player like larry bird or michael Jordan, we see complete, controlled movements. they simply make it look easy. thus is the case with Progressive metal master-drummer danny carey. as he moves in and out of various time signatures, he flows seamlessly. He plays with total control and as he executes one of his many challenging fills – you know, the ones we’re all trying to cop – he does it powerfully and smoothly. after one of his blazing solos, the crowd reacts much the same way. cheering. like… Read more »
wow sorry. for some reason the breaks i made in the questions undid themselves when i hit post
^ What the fuck did I just read?
i really hope its not messuggah inspired.
