Tool Halfway Done With Album
2012-12-16 by ChickenOrBeef | 86 Comments

Popular progressive metal band Tool are apparently more than halfway done with the writing of their upcoming album.

Tool's official website, toolband.com, was able to listen to a few new songs. According to the author, the songs did not include vocals from singer Maynard James Keenan. However, he went on to describe the songs by saying that "it sounded like... Tool (some of it reminiscent to earlier Tool stuff, with other parts pushing the envelope)".

The author also mentioned that the writing process usually goes faster "once the first few [more complex] songs were finished".

1. The 2012 release was so good I doubt they will be able to top it.

2. This and Detox are gonna be great in 2034.

i bet it will come out next year, or at least 2014. Tool typically takes 5-6 years to come out with a new album, and 10,000 days came out in 2006, so...

Maybe the real concept behind 10,000 days is this. That it would take 10,000 fucking days to finally release a new album.

10,000 Days was a reference to his mother's condition, but sure.

do you pronounce your last name as "snocksall" or "snozall"? The answer is probably obvious but people
pronounce words differently so I'm just curious. ;p

It's pronounced 'snocksal'

the a-l-l isn't pronounced like the word 'all,' it's just more like an immediate 'l' sound.

Yeah, we can give this rest. It'll probably take 10,000 days to make the rest of the album and another 10,000 to get it released.
