Re: Pneuma

Adam will go across at play a synth and then come back to finish the song.

I am really looking forward to seeing this played live :)

Re: 7empest

After multiple listens I am breaking this epic song down into 4 parts: The first 5:35 - heavy, fast, riffs, grooves and angry MJK vocals/lyrics. 5:35 - 9:35 - Adam Jones taking the spotlight while Danny & Justin maintain a solid rhythm. 9:35 - 11:45 - MJK comes back and the song builds to a great cl...

Re: Litanie contre la peur

This is a nice segue between, arguably, two of TOOL's best written songs in Pneuma and Invincible...

It creates a little separation between two epic tracks. Cool eerie/mysterious vibe.

Re: Pneuma

This is almost the quintessential TOOL song... it really is just about perfect. Flows so nicely, simple riff over and over, spaced out, build ups, beautiful lyrics and vocals and the 9:34 mark after the guitar part is one of the best collective TOOL moments in their whole career catalog. I cannot cr...

Re: Tool New Album Release Date Competition

Hmmmm, I think if they do one more (it's possible Fear Inoculum is their last since they've fulfilled their record contract), I'd say 2026 is a safe bet Busty.

I'll take the optimistic approach here:

Friday, May 9, 2025 (5/9/25)

Re: Fear Inoculum with SPOILERS

This is fucking good stuff; I absolutely loved finally hearing Invincible after listening to the live version and then seeing them play it live. It sounds great here. Culling Voices is a nice addition. Love the slow build up and heavier finish. Pneuma surprised me and 7empest is has a LOT going on s...

I'm busy until 2:20pm and then I'm totally free for 3 days so I hope I can download it and head home. Is that what usually happens when ...

Yeah me too...

Maybe it's our brains filling in the blanks after seeing the i in Pim at the start of the name and just concluding that another i comes after the second capital letter P here.

Sorta like how we can figure our "F*ck me" and "Holy sh*t" without too much processing :)

Your 79:06 guess is very close to the apparent 79:10 on Wikipedia... assuming it's legit etc.

Re: Guess the Album Length - New Fourtheye Contest

So it looks like we have a winner

tys0n - 79:06

The album is apparently 79:10 according to whoever updated the Wikipedia page for Fear Inoculum:

Re: Fear Inoculum

I am so fucking keen to hear Pneuma and 7empest now... and of course Culling Voices.

Very curious as to how they can do a heavy song for 18 minutes or 20 minutes or whatever 7empest is to finish out the album :)

I know Third Eye is like 14 minutes live but I am very excited!

Re: Fear Inoculum

The 3:58 mark when Maynard cuts in with a "Exhale, expel..." gets me each time. The song just keeps building and he comes back with another "Exhale, expel..." at the 5:26 mark. His lyrics and vocals at the end with the final "A long time... coming" is a perfect fit and finish to the song from him. T...

Re: Fear Inoculum

Just gonna say I think purchasing this new song for $1.69 on iTunes last night is one of the best value for money purchases I've ever made.

And the whole album is only $19.95 :)

I would've paid more given the 13 years and the fact it's TOOL

Re: Fear Inoculum

I love the "Exhale, expel..." vocals over the guitars parts. I know it's only early and an initial reaction, but I really dig the lyrics here with regard to what I think he's talking about and the album title/concept. His vocals and lyrics really complement the song without taking over... well-place...

Given that it was 10pm here last night and other people were around, I couldn't really crank up my stereo when listening to it the first few times... but I did immediately lock into something deep and mysterious going on. However, after playing it 3 times straight on my full car stereo on the drive ...

Nah I think the general feeling was that it was a good album, but not exceptional, and fans were happy to see TOOL back again. There'll always be plenty of initial negativity on the internet as a way of getting attention but most reviews were fairly positive, it sold a lot of copies (500k in its fir...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

10,000 Days wasn't panned; it just didn't receive the same glowing reviews Lateralus experienced back in 2001.

I think Metallica's St Anger was panned, or U2's Pop... or the last Die Hard movie set in Russia etc.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Seven deadly sins is too obvious. Maybe after naming their last album 10,000 Days another album accentuating a number didn't quite fit. I reckon Maynard's got something deep behind naming it FEAR INOCULUM; some sort of theme somehow . But here's a thought: is FEAR meant to be considered a verb here,...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Yes, similar experience for me. My older brother had made a tape (that's right, cassette tape) of rock songs that included stuff like Metallica (Enter Sandman), some Pearl Jam tracks (Jeremy? Even Flow?), Smashing Pumpkins and so on but there were two tracks that always caught my attention: STINKFIS...
