I found Danny’s modular synth / drum solo track on their latest album to be pretty amusing. From what I’ve seen on his website and from photos posted by Peter Grenader, he’s got quite the collection of keyboard and modular synths. I’m honestly surprised they aren’t used more on Tool recordings, as they’d provide some interesting textures that aren’t part of Adam or Justin’s usual guitar and bass sounds.
Thanks so much for sharing this, been on a big nostalgia kick lately and these guys remind me SO MUCH of what was going on in like a hundred midwestern scene dive bars in the early 00s, only like… good.
start your morning right! with this epic operatic classic(i used to listen to all the time when i was 13-14 years old )
“In the sky a mighty eagle
Doesn’t care 'bout what’s illegal” (<-SEE how they rhyme ‘eagle’ with ‘illegal’… GENIUS! …Kendrick Lamar and William Faulkner could have a baby and it wouldn’t be anywhere near as erudite with poignant literate designs such as this ())
[warning: listening to this song may cause momentary lapses of reason and tendencies towards not knowing the difference between good-taste and poor-taste ()]
Amenra has this heavy energy, as if it is physical weight. Sometimes it is exactly what I need to get back on the ground. They play live in April over here in Germany, but it will be in a huge concert hall with a lot of other bands. I prefer small venues, such as an cruiscin lan in Cork back in the days (many great gigs, very close to the musicians, shaking hands with Gaahl kinda close).
Wreckmeister Harmonies is also one to check out for the heavy as in lourd.
Thanks @smonthms for remembering me of Oathbreaker!
