    I can't believe the last album was 12 years ago. Jesus.



    Love this live instagram practice of Grudge Adam posted recently.

    The riff that starts at 3:10 ALWAYS leaves me wanting more.

    That band changed my life, no shit.

    I can’t believe it’s been 12 years since their last record. I would say after from around 2010 to 2015, I was still anxious for their next album, but the last few years I’ve been kinda meh since it’s been so long.

    At this point, I really, truly just hope it doesn’t suck.

    On a side note, I started my vinyl collection today and Undertow was the first record I picked up. Along with ...Like Clockwork by QOTSA, Rumours by Fleetwood Mac and Stardust by Willie Nelson. I have never owned anything by Fleetwood Mac or Willie Nelson so why not? Lol

    You should really get Lateralus too. Killer album and also some amazing artwork with the vinyl set.

    They had Lateralus but it was almost $50!! I will get it eventually, that’s my favorite tool record.

    Nice work on starting your vinyl collection, and as someone who shares similar tastes in music, such as Tool, etc. I wholeheartedly support having lots of Fleetwood Mac and Willie Nelson in your collection. I’ve got Fleetwood Mac in mine! I love listening to Rumours after I listen to The Sword and The Swans.

    I have Undertow on vinyl still sealed around here somewhere. I snagged a lot of LP's when i worked in a record store in the early 90's even though i had no turntable.

    The last 2 Sword albums are kind of a letdown. These guys will come through.

    Anyone catch them pre Undertow? I saw them a few times touring that album. They even walked into the store i mentioned previously when they played Berkeley Square. I saw them in SF at The Trocodero Transfer on the last show of maybe that same tour? It seemed like years later. They looked like haggard zombies by then.

    I have a soundboard recording from the last time i saw them in Oakland some 12 years ago. Their visuals back then made me feel like i was halucinating. Maybe i was.

    Just when you think that "our" kind of music is almost dead, something like this comes along to give you hope for the future and our youth.




    This is a pretty good show that a person composed from a lot of different video photographers.

    I wasn’t crazy about High Country, but I actually like their new record. It’s definitely very chill and cohesive as a record. But it is easy listening compared to their early stuff.

    Anyone interested in Tool's history would probably enjoy Maynard's biography "A Perfect Union of Contrary Things". It's pretty thorough - at least about their origin/ early days. The audiobook is kinda neat in that he himself reads certain passages throughout. The book is a little self indulgent, but his is definitely an interesting story.

    It's hard to believe 10,000 days came out 12 years ago. I remember the first time hearing it while driving to Blacksburg from Roanoke with my first band (we were all fans). Saw them live on that tour in D.C. and they were brilliant.

    A Perfect Circle's first album was the one that basically woke my brain up to music back in high school. Tool naturally followed close behind, and was the first band that really challenged me and opened me up to all the music I listen to today.

    I don't listen to them often nowadays, but I'd definitely have high hopes for a new album, if it ever surfaces

    My TOOL/Adam Jones fanboy GAS for a Silverburst Les Paul (affordable enough for a high schooler...) led me to Rondo/Agile years ago.

    That's where I started with Rondo. A 2800 Silverburst on ebay from Kurts ebay store, before I knew of his website, which oddly hasn't changed really in 15 years... I think I've had 4 Agile silverbursts. The 2800 was new, the 2k and 2 Dauntless' were bstocks. The good ole days of $99 bstock al2ks..
    There's a 2000 silverburst on reverb but I think it's 270 shipped, a bit steep for me.

    I have been in the hospital for the last two days. Thanks to @idiotsdelight and this thread, I have started becoming reacquainted with Tool again. Listening to The Holy Gift variation of Lateralus. Perfect music for laying in a hospital bed. Some great music at the YouTube Tool Archive.
