Iíve been listening to Tool almost as long as Sky and they were one of my favorites to now feel a bit overdone and overplayed. I didnít care for Lateralus but 10,000 Days really struck a chord with me and I enjoyed it. But that was almost 14 years ago now. Iíve moved on to other things and while I still enjoy them, as a band I donít feel they contribute much new anymore. Thereís absolutely nothing wrong with that either. Iíll still get whatever new album comes out, but Iíve seen them 4 times and donít see much reason to go see them again as the setlist isnít that varied. Their rabid fan base also annoys me a bit too but thatís my problem ;-) The new songs sound ok, but they sound like something that should have come out 10 years ago.

Contrary to everyone else I never liked APC.

I already think Radio and Deutschland (the latter in particular) are great, so it is promising that you marked three additional songs.

In honor of Game of Thrones coming to a painful conclusion I present to you guitarists rocking the main theme on Fender's new Sigil Collection guitars:

Watch as Game Of Thrones creator Dan Weiss, Tom Morello of Audioslave/Rage Against The Machine, Scott Ian of Anthrax, Nuno Bettencourt of Extreme, Brad Paisley, and Game Of Thrones composer Ramin Djawadi shred on the all-new Sigil Collection Guitars from The Fender Custom Shop.
I had no idea Brad Paisley was such a good guitarist (don't listen to country music, obviously). Nuno was totally impressed by his solo too!

There are a bunch of really great country guitarists who few people know are great unless they see them in concert because country is pop now. Usually only comes out live, when they pair up with rock guys, etc.

Mastodon covering Stairway to Heaven.  Not really a fan of Zepplin, but a pretty good cover nevertheless.

I like the new Rammstein album overall, but the back half is kinda forgettable.  I find myself zoning out after Sex/Puppe, and realistically Auslander is the last track I am fully engaged and listening to, until the album starts over again. 
The latest Amon Amarth album, however, does not suffer from that problem, even if it is a bit cookie monster-y.

Looking forward to the new Heilung album coming out at the end of June.

Will check it out, but man I feel they have been making the same album a decade plus and have not paid any attention to them or Russian Circles in a decade or so. 

Torche has a new album out than I am digging

NEVER BREAK THE OATH
Mercyful Fate will be playing an unspecified number of concerts throughout Europe during the summer of 2020, including Copenhell.

 
It will be the ď9Ē lineup, featuring:

Hank Shermann - Guitar

King Diamond - Vocals

Bjarne T Holm - Drums

Mike Wead - Guitar

with Joey Vera on the bass while Timi Hansen is away.

We asked Joey Vera (Armored Saint, Fates Warning) to fill in because he has a very unique style and sound playing with his fingers, much like that of Timi Hansen. This is very important, since the set list will only consist of songs from the very first ďmini LPĒ, the ďMelissaĒ album, and the ďDonít Break The OathĒ album, plus some brand new songs written specifically in that very same style.

This will very much be Mercyful Fate as we were in the very beginning, except for a brand new major stage production.

See you at the Ruined Bridge.

Stay Heavy

Mercyful Fate

Also a bit weird that Michael Denner isn't in the lineup, since he's been jamming old Fate stuff with Shermann on YT the last couple years. And I'd take the heresy of having Larocque with Shermann, because I love Andy's stuff so much (Abigail is so epic).

Same. I own everything already (and more than what is on Spotify) so it is just nice to have it in one place.

I didn't like the live stuff they were doing from this new album but this new track is intriguing. I tend to dislike live shows and prefer albums anyways.

It's pretty clear from the 3 songs I've heard of the new Tool album, it is not going to be easily approachable or digestible. It's going to take a lot of listens.

After giving the new song a ton of listens and being a pretty big tool fan my take is that it is good, but Just more Tool. Nothing new.

I was hoping that after 13 years we would see something a bit different. That said, I do like it and I will listen to it as often as I listen to their other stuff.

I was reading the toolband subreddit and looking at some of the comments on youtube and holy shit some people need to dial it back a bit. People talking about crying when they got to listen to it. Treating it like its a life changing moment etc. Again, its a good song but would have fit right in on Lateralus.

The new tool is probably not a big deal  why so serious?

I was kind of bummed about 10k Days, as Lateralus was just so amazing. I'm glad they took the time with the new one, I think it's paying off.

As with most Tool, it takes some time to digest and internalize...I initially didn't care for Fear Inoculum, but I gave it a listen with headphones last night and holy shit. Holy. Shit.

This is exactly how I felt. Sure, I like Tool and all and the new song is good. It's just... more Tool? Like it could have been recorded 10-15 years ago. I expect *some* musical growth after such a long hiatus, it's not like they've been churning out the same album for 40 years every 12-18 months (ala MotŲrhead). It's still good, just... as I said, I just expected more.

And holy shit do the fans out there need to turn it down on the worship. I went to a concert of theirs a few years back and this guy who couldn't have been more than 16-17 acted like he was going to have an orgasm every time they played a different song, it was almost an "Ed Sullivan presents the Beatles" moment for this kid. He was going on and on about how "they're gods among men" and "we mere mortals aren't worthy to share their air" (direct quotes). I wanted to say "settle down Beavis..." but figured I'd let him have his moment. And I did get into a bookfaces slapfest a few weeks ago by daring to suggest that it wasn't particularly thrilling or great and all of the nerds jumped me over it...

I won't go so far to say the riffs sound full on recycled, but they do sound familiar, I suppose.  My initial opinion after the first listen was that it wouldn't have sounded out of place on Lateralus.  After subsequent listens, and having listened to Lateralus a bit, I think it stands on it's own a bit more than had I previously thought.  As for it being more of the same from Tool, I figure it's just one song, but if the album ends up being Lateralus II, I don't really have a problem with that.

Aw, come on, man. Kid's having fun. Haven't you ever been to a Rush show? My fiancee got a little freaked out when they went into 2112 and everyone lost their shit, collectively.

Hell, I remember seeing Metallica open for Ozzy in 1986 or 7 and the kid I was with was giving me a hard time for headbanging the hell out of it. Kept trying to 'calm me down'. Hey, fuck you man, motherfucking Cliff Burton is ripping Orion about 20 feet away, there is no calm.

I will admit when something like 46&2 comes on I lose it, happily. It's fun to get immersed in the music and show like that.

It doesn't sound very different from their last album but then... more Tool is almost never a bad thing. It won't have the same impact on me that hearing Sober did that first time but that's getting old, innit?

I'm keeping an open mind about it and I only listened to the new track once. I hate when I ruin an album by listening to a single track a bunch, then it becomes a drag when listening to the album whole.

Schism was the first song released on Lateralus and really ended up being one of my least favorite on that album after the dust settled. Maybe this is the same thing; there will be lots more tracks and something else may be better.

Good idea. I can't stand Sober, I honestly really dislike that song now.

I once sat in on an open mic and called out 'any tool song....except sober.' The guys started playing sober, I walked off stage. Fuck that song.

Smashing Pumpkins Siamese Dream is the worst case of that Iíve experienced. It was an amazing album at release but the radio played about four songs over and over and over... it just ruined the album entirely. I canít listen to any of it now. Most of what they did after that was lost in the machine of what happened to that album.

MTV overplaying videos in the early-to-mid '90's killed a LOT of good bands for me. I was into Smashing Pumpkins when I heard Gish, thought it was pretty brilliant. Siamese Dream and that fucking song "Today" totally killed that band for me, and it's only now that I can stand to listen to any of their music. They literally killed Nirvana by overexposing Cobain so much he killed himself.

I still love Sober though, as well as that entire album.
