New TOOL album! Order now bitches.
For those who cant wait. Here is your SPINE TINGLING first sample that will bring tears to your eyes if you’re anything like me. TOOL really is a gift.
The drums are supernatural. The lyrics clean and inspiring. The bass and guitars, distinctly original.2019-08-11 at 10:00 PM#907116+1
These guys are good. This song’s a bit on the soft side compared to songs they’ve done in the past lol.
But still… awesome.2019-08-12 at 9:04 AM#907139
If this song is anything like former single releases, the rest of the album is going to blow our socks off.
This song has many layers too. After I listened to it for a few days, maybe up to 20 listens now, its taken on a new sort of heaviness. Im diggin it! Its very TOOL and its rockin no doubt. Perhaps not as heavy as The Pot single was 13 years ago but still.
Im reserving judgement until the full album release. I already know though, based on this sample which is probably one of the more softer tunes on the album, the Fear Inoculum ALBUM is going to rock the building.
When you relisten to this song a few times, its actually pretty knarly and rough, METALish I dare say. TOOL has always had its back bone in Danny Carey’s tribal, multiple beat drumming. Its girthy. I love it. Every member of the band has REAL talent and maturity, that is why I love them. As opposed to bands like Slipknot or Korn which were run by people who clearly couldnt master their instrument and had no business being a musician.2019-08-12 at 9:45 AM#907140
Metalish is not the right word for TOOL.
Theyve been described as Art Rock, Progressive Rock… its pretty fitting.
I like them because they’re CLEAN. Its clean, well planned, written by people who give a damn about quality, form, texture, meaning etc… Its as if they’re building something more than a song.
Other bands show up hungover in a garage each Sunday, one guy is strung on dope, another brutally hungover and the other guy is going through a break-up with his girlfriend… and maybe one guy is is sober and holding the band together.
I dont think TOOL was ever really like that. Maybe some drugs back in their first few albums but nothing like the Rock Star Drug Addict stereo type we see other bands take2019-08-12 at 9:49 AM#907141
TOOL has also maintained incredible wise and useful lyrics. Its pretty much Hymnal Rock! LOL. If you actually read the lyrics for the album Lateralus, its basically a secular Sermon. Same thing with this Fear Inocolum song which message is to inoculate yourself from Fear. Fear is what cause people to harm others.
Immunity long overdue
Contagion I exhale you
Lying I opened up to you
Venom in mania
Now, contagion I exhale you
The deceiver he says you belong to me
You don’t want to breathe the light of the others
Fear the light
Fear the breathe
Fear the others for eternity
But I hear them now inhale the clarity
Hear the venom, the venom in what you say — inoculated
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity
Bless this immunity
Recast my tale
Weave my allegorical elegy
All that I’m to do
Calculating steps away from you
My own mitosis
Growing through delusion from mania
Recast my tale with my allegorical elegy
Forfeit all control
Exorcise the spectacle
Exorcise the malady
Exorcise the disparate
Poison for eternity
Purge me and evacuate
The venom and the fear that binds me
I see you running
Deceiver chased away
A long time coming2019-08-12 at 9:57 AM#907142

I figured out the problem with this song sounding soft, the Volume dial was turned too low.2019-08-30 at 10:05 AM#908852
The wait is over. TOOL has spoken. All ye who listen will be blessed with immunity from fear2019-08-30 at 10:38 AM#908861+1
Oh yeah !
I like Lateralus. Especially Ticks & Leeches. So much energy near the end !2019-09-21 at 11:19 AM#911054
I just got my Fear Inoculum special release package Album in the mail.
The Lateralus and 10,000 Days albums Packaging were both totally original and awesome but Fear Inoculum takes the cake.
The Music and the Special Packaging and small HD screen movie are beyond words. What a MAGICAL rock album and gorgeous artwork. They really have outdone themselves. A treasure.
TOOL is the best. LOVE the new album.
