Album Review: PetroDragonic Apocalypse

Album Review: PetroDragonic Apocalypse

In the often decade long lulls between Tool albums the news cycle tends to slow down somewhat. I mostly highlight Tool (and related act) tours and occasionally a bit of related news. It seems to me though I should probably post some more, so if you’ll allow me to indulge, and may from time to time review a record I reckon the Fourtheye Crew would be interested in. First up… Read More »Album Review: PetroDragonic Apocalypse

Tool back catalog re-issues on the way?

Buzz and Mackie Osborne have featured on a recent episode of Making Ways: The Art of Music, during which Mackie confirms quite a few Tool re-issues are on the way.

RIP Chris Cornell

Devastating news tonight with confirmation that Soundgarden and Audioslave singer Chris Cornell has passed away. While I wouldn’t normally post on non-Tool related news, I expect this news hits hard for many Fourtheye reader who like myself found Soundgarden to be staple of their listening habits.  Chris’ voice was one that was very rarely matching in music, and will be sorely missed. Too all my readers out there, if you’re… Read More »RIP Chris Cornell

King Buzzo hints at 12 minute Tool songs

King Buzzo had a chat with Team Rock lately about his favorite Melvins albums, and while talking about Stoner Witch, had the following to say about the new Tool album: The Stoner Witch record was the middle record of the three that we did with Atlantic.
