Maynard speaks about Puscifer with Metal Hammer

In an interview with British metal magazine Metal Hammer, Maynard James Keenan speaks mostly about his distinctly unmetal project: Puscifer and the coming album Money Shot. It’s an interesting read, though doesn’t really cover any ground that wasn’t done so in the recent Rolling Stone interview. It features an almost identical response to the inevitable Tool question as well.

What it does have going for it are some cool new photo’s with Travis Shinn, and a list of his favorite wins for all you wine buffs out there, and a relatively unknown winery Ochota Barrels from out my way in the Adelaide Hills seems to have come out on top!

WINE OF THE TIMES
Maynard James Keenan’s favourite wine Dons.

1. Ochota Barrels

(Adelaide Hills, Australia)

“Taras Ochota is doing things differently and, oddly enough, it’s what I’ve been doing here in Arizona – picking earlier, and putting less fruit on the vine to begin with, so that everything ripens evenly and all the acid is in balance so you can have Italian-style wines. Ochota Barrels wines are fantastic.”

2. Azienda Agricola Le Ragnaie

(Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy)

“Riccardo Campinoti is doing fantastic work with high-elevation wines.”

3. Azienda Agricola Edoardo Sobrino

(Cuneo, Piedmont, Italy)

“Edoardo Sobrino [makes] a pretty badass Barolo [a type of red wine made in northwest Italy].”

4. Azienda Agricola San Polino

(Montalcino, Tuscany, Italy)

“Luigi and his wife, if you go to their home, you see that it’s all built from the ground up. All this ‘local movement’ stuff, its funny – you have to put a name on it, you have to put out a pamphlet. I get that we have to do that to retune people to what’s happening. But you go to places in Europe, and it just kind of is and has been, for generations.”

5. Dos Cabezas Wineworks

(Sonoita, Arizona, USA)

“It’s family-run and operated, again, from the ground up, with kids running around. It’s fantastic wine.”

I don’t think there’s quite possibly a better place for Maynard to discuss his favorite wine selections than with Metal Hammer magazine.

That third pic might be the biggest smile I have ever seen on MJK. Are we in for happy, upbeat lyrics on the next Tool album? I hope not!
