Tangentially Tool-related, for anyone interested, a previously unreleased Peach tune was just posted by the Suns of the Tundra guys:

Re: Opeth

There's a bit of a rumour going around that the 3 songs that didn't make it on InCauda Venenum will eventually be released as an EP. Fingers crossed it happens, 'cause Cirkelns Riktning is great. Holy shit. How did I not remember this dropped...? I've heard a few tracks, but was looking forward to h...

Some more videos since I last posted, a music video for Retrospection, and some live performances (apparently they were going to do a live album/DVD from Kiev, but they weren't entirely happy with how it turned out): https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wh2yOebcENM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vEhxuNu...

Re: Apocalyptica

So Apocalyptica's new album "Cell-0" is one of their best, and easily the best thing they've put in a decade, since "7th Symphony" in 2010. Not a weak track on there, quality front to back.

Re: Jinjer

New album is very solid, if a bit underdeveloped in places. That constricted schedule they're on will have to go if they want to write a truly great album though, I think they have it in them, but it needs time.

Re: Opeth

A B-Side leaked https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6hjCYh9E_4 It's really good. Album must be really strong if this is a B-Side. Although, having said that, on several other albums some of their B-Sides have ended up being stronger than some tracks that made the album proper. Spring, Still Day Beneath...

Re: 7empest

Such an oldschool Tool song.

After reading Justin saying Adam had one of these riffs since before he (Justin) even joined the band, it just made sense. It's an Undertow song written with Justin. Right down to the lyrical content.

Re: 7empest

For me this song was a real suprise and immediatly reminded me of the songs from Opiate or Undertow. According to Justin... "“There are riffs on the new album that Adam had before I was even in the band,” he offers. “The last track, ‘7empest’ [pronounced Tempest], the main body of the first chunk o...

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

A criticism I had after listening to the album 7 or 8 times (without the segues) was I thought it could have used another song or 2. But that has largely abated with the inclusion of the segues. They round it out quite nicely. I don't always like segues, like with Aenima I think they slow down the p...

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

Random thoughts after hearing FI about 6 or 7 times straight through: It's a very solid album overall. Perhaps could have used another track or two, something shorter ("shorter" like The Grudge or Vicarious...)? Maybe, for some variety. That might be my biggest criticism. Tempest is a bit over-long....

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

Anyone else hear the radio edit of FI yet? Rather hard hitting tune in a truncated format. Missing the soundscapes but it was an interesting listen. I wonder how the edits are coordinated with the band/label? I remember Justin speaking about radio edits a couple of times, from what I recall the ban...

Fear Inoculum is probably the weakest song on here. It's really good, but I still think lacking a real crescendo in the second half hurts it.

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

Going through my second listen, Pneuma is probably the standout. Some of the drumming reminds me of the intro of the live versions of Triad.

Great to hear Invincible properly too.

Re: Fear Inoculum

I bet they know there’s no way to avoid a leak for an album that is this much anticipated. At some point the units will the warehouses and there’s no control after that. It’s a shame it leaked, i bet the guys are pissed , i’m sure it’s costing them a lot. Nah, I doubt they're mad. Getting to within...
