Tool hates Dubya

Tool’s new album may be titled “10,000 Days,” according to the band’s official website.

The new album is expected to contain 11 tracks, some of them over eight minutes long, to come to a grand total of 77 minutes of Tool’s trademark style of progressive metal.

In an interview with Kerrang! magazine, the members of Tool elaborated on the album’s sound:

"We've all been listening to a lot of MESHUGGAH," admitted guitarist Adam Jones. "I see a lot of them in us and us in them, and they really have a very experimental prog side to them. I don't think it was like, 'Okay, right here were going to play like MESHUGGAH,' but more, 'Oh my God, that's come out a MESHUGGAH moment.'"

Tool drummer Danny Carey tells it how it is:

"We have the most retarded President we've ever had, and we're frustrated and that's the reason it's a little heavier this time," drummer Danny Carey told Kerrang! "That level of frustration back like when we first got the band together: we were products of that fucking Reagan thing, we were pissed off and bummed out, we had that angst, and now it's coming forth again: like it or not, we're products of our environment. We're pissed off again."
