Imo the first three records are all great, and bring something interesting to the table.
I said it in the album thread but what made those first two records so good is that scary, unhinged element to their sound. It always sounded like they were going to go off the rails but never did. The new album is the sound of a band that is a well-oiled machine, which is cool and there's some great stuff, but I'm not necessarily listening to Slipknot for anthemic choruses.
I'm in the exact same boat. First album and Iowa were big for me in high school/freshmen year of college, but then they lost me. New album is the first one to kinda draw me back in. I'm not saying you're gonna be completely sold again, but it's definitely worth giving a spin.
for those who like snare drums.
Went to a free Sevendust concert last night. I was 2 rows from the stage, which was awesome, but for the first 4 songs, the guy behind me was singing the chorus to Denial, regardless of what song they were playing.
Tool opinions aside, it is impressive that it’s been over a year for any rock album to be number 1.
The spat between fans of both bands is the the dumbest thing ever
Oh I have seen some of the comments and it's laughable and worth an eye roll.
The only fanbase more insufferable than Taylor Swift's is Tool's
Can't disagree there, speaking as a former Toolhead
This is like calling a rotten Apple even more rotten. Does it exist? Lol
Can't believe the Tool fanbase aren't called just "Tools" with their reputation.
yo the new Serpent Column is crazy
edit: here it is
just imagine taking a band with that logo seriously.
You act like they are the only band with a ridiculous logo? Lol
Insert any death metal band here:
it's a phallic wrench, nate. not a bundle of sticks. there's a big difference.
I’m going to go out back and throw a bunch of sticks down. Guys, we have a band name! Lol
Also, Tools current logo is perfect and looks like it was plucked straight from the 90’s and was a throw away from a hair metal band!
if your death metal logo doesn’t look like crackling leather on an old couch, you’re doing it wrong
is this when we start posting our favorite ridiculous logos?
The cover of the woman with the bird chirping in the background is hysterical
One of the reasons I loved the first two albums is that they sound like you'd expect based on their aesthetics. Most of what they've released since just isn't on the same level. Any menace cam from the fact they wear masks, and not the music itself.
French grindcore that's pretty good.
Does Jinjer have a big following? They sold out a show here at a venue that rarely if ever sells out. I was surprised, that's all.
I think they are pretty big overseas.
The show is here in Dallas, but the place holds like 1200+ people. The Browning is opening, but I don't think they draw that well.
Jinjer is definitely a rising act
