Tool overnight revealed the cover for Fear Inoculum overnight via Instagram. The design vaguely resembles a computer animated spiral of eyes, or perhaps a snake skin. To me it seems more mechanical than organic. There’s no real clarification of the artist, however as noted yesterday it was heavily hinted to be Alex Grey.
I would say it’s relatively low-key compared to other Tool albums, though I do expect that most of the interesting bits about the package will be found on the inside, rather than the cover.
As noted in the post, pre-order details will arrive tomorrow, going on sale on Wednesday. Hopefully a track too!
What do you all think?
