    I've heard that they were in the studio last year, and were going to start recording sometime soon after Maynard was done touring w/ APC. I was also told to expect it to be out sometime this month. Other than that, I don't know anything about it. It doesn't seem like anyone does. Does anybody here have any other info on it? release date and such?

    Easy. Tool stole most of their sound from King Crimson. They readily admit this.
     
  11. Personally I don't think they sound that similar tone-wise.. I remember reading that maynard claimed to have "ripped off" King Crimson, but would anyone have guessed it otherwise?

    I meant to say that it should have been the other way around, rather than to imply that they don't go together, but then again, I have seen how many people a tool show attracts. It's terrifying, and considering that it shouldn't surprise anyone (much less someone amazing like me) that King Crimson would have a comparatively small audience.

    That being said, it still hurts my brain to think about it, about as much as phil lesh sitting in w/ umphrey's mcgee.
     
  12. the guy that does tool's official site has been sitting on a few of their practices, aparently one of the songs is 18mins long and theres another one at 12mins long. Sounds like its gonna b cassic Tool. They better bring out that DVD they've been talking about for ages.

    I thought I heard a new Tool song on the radio, but it just turned out to be APC. :crying: It sounded like APC but I wanted so badly for it to be tool that I must have convinced myself that it was. Anybody heard anything new? (Bump)
     
  16. I love Tool as much as I love King Crimson. Personally, Tool should be opening up for Crimson. I'm not biased, in any way. I just think that the music would set up great highs for the audience. The transition would be completely amazing. Tool, Meshuggah, Crimson.
    Great show. Anything with Crimson = good show.
