Tool na pola puta?

Oglas

Još 2011. čitali smo kako su članovi benda započeli sa stvaranjem novog materijala za peti studijski album Toola, neki časopisi i online magazini stavili su ga na listu najiščekivanijih albuma za 2013., a već krajem proljeća ove godine bubnjar Danny Carey izjavio je da ima okvir za pet novih pjesama te da ih namjerava sve završiti do kraja godine.

Fanovi Toola, možemo samo dalje nastaviti sliniti jer se informacije daju na kapaljku i nikada s realnom i službenom potvrdom.

Kao što smo već pisali, članovi Toola su većinom samostalno radili na snimanju novog materijala dok se Maynard posvetio Pusciferu i vinima. Izgleda da su nešto i složili no po svemu sudeći, daleko smo od „svetog grala“. Prošli tjedan je pak na službenoj stranici Toola iskrsnuo poduži newsletter urednika njihove web stranice u kojoj blagdansku dobru volju širi kroz poruku da je bend na „više od pola puta“ do dovršetka materijala i ulaska u studio.

Osim nastupa Toola na Ozzfestu u Japanu, bitnija je vijest o tome da je osobno čuo nove stvari (nastale na sessionima bez Maynarda) tokom vožnje s bubnjarem Danny Careyem te da evociraju ranija bendova izdanja uz povremena izlaženja iz okvira.

Nije velika utjeha u silnom iščekivanju no dovoljno da nas drži napetima.

Donosimo vam kompletnu izjavu u nastavku:

Wanting to open some presents are you? Well, as I’ve already announced on this very website, TOOL will be performing at OZZFEST in JAPAN in MAY of 2013. If you can’t make that show, there MIGHT be another gift or two under the tree – things unnoticed amongst the torn wrapping paper, ribbons and empty boxes. My best guess is that these ‘presents’ won’t be opened until after the holidays – knowing just how important it is to take your evergreen decorations down by January 5th. Though not on the 2012 reindeer-propelled sleigh, there are a couple of other Tool projects on the horizon that I am privy to, but, unfortunately, can’t comment on any further at this time… as was requested by the band’s management (Bah humbug with a British accent!).

Something that might be encouraging to some Tool enthusiasts is that while riding with Danny to Chili John’s yesterday, I heard a lot of new Tool music (sans Maynard). This was the most new material that I’ve heard so far, although a few of the riffs and arrangements were familiar. So, what did I think? Dare I say that it sounded like… Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope), and I assume that it will sound even more like Tool once the vocal melodies, etc. have been added. To answer your next question, I cannot say how far along in the writing process the band is. If I had to GUESS, I would say more than half way (and keep in mind that in the past, at least, the writing went faster once the first few [more complex] songs were finished).
