they recorded in Dirty Bird Studio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lxw9z3KBjBM
new album "Fear Inoculum" has landed at position No. 1 on the Billboard
200 chart. The band's first effort in 13 years sold approx 270,000
album units in its first week of release. "Fear Inoculum" beat Taylor
Swift's "Lover" for the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 chart. "Lover"
after debuting at No. 1 last week, fell to No. 2, with 178,000 album
units sold. This was particularly astonishing for Taylor Swift fans,
most of whom have no idea who Tool is. Reports in the media claimed
Swift fans were confused who this "new band" Tool was and how they were
able to unseat Swift's new album.
(09.08) Brain Drill
has decided to call it quits. They will be missed, love em or hate em,
their style has really pushed the genre forward in some interesting
ways over the years. Here's the post from the band: "As of last month
we’ve mutually decided to bring Brain Drill to an end. We simply do not
have the spare time to play shows, tour or record anymore. So after
being a band for 15 years we’ve come to the conclusion that it’s best
to just be done with it. We are very thankful and grateful for the
support we were given by all of our fans around the world throughout
the years in helping us create the Brain Drill trilogy. Thanks again to
everyone for all of the support and Goodbye. Dylan / Alex / Travis / Brain

(05.02) Vocalist Dave Hunt will be leaving Benediction
after a 20 year run. Says the band: "Dave’s schedule has become
increasingly congested with his commitments with both Benediction and
Anaal Nathrakh as well as his relentless studies for his PhD. Therefore
Dave will vacate the role in Benediction he has commanded with such
strength for over 20 years. As Dave
says, ‘With the writing for the new Benediction album almost complete,
it sadly became clear that it would be impossible for me to give
Benediction the full commitment it so richly deserves, for the album,
the release and the inevitable shows and other events around it in the
future. To me, Benediction is more than a band, more than a bunch of
brothers I never had, more than one of the most important things in my
life for half the time I’ve been on the planet. It is an institution.
And I genuinely believe it’s in an incredibly strong place, especially
with the new material. There are great things ahead for Benediction,
and although I’m gutted I can’t be part of them, the guys have my total
respect, affection and support’.Benediction have begun working
with his replacement and have already completed writing for a number of
vocal tracks for the new album, but his identity will remain private
for the time being. Dave will still complete the shows booked between
now and July, and we would like to make it clear that all shows
currently booked will happen, both before and after the changeover. A
further announcement regarding the identity of the new singer will be
made nearer to July.Benediction would like to take this opportunity to
thank Dave for his superb performance and his loyal service over his
time with the band and wish him every success in the future and will
remain close friends with him long into the future. Much respect and
many thanks mate."

(04.29) Guitarist Joakim Karlsson has left Bloodbath.
He says "To be honest, I’ve never really considered myself a guitarist
– at least not a particularly good one – just someone who plays guitar
out of necessity because I wouldn’t be able to write my music
otherwise. Bloodbath needs a lead guitarist; someone who can pull off
these fast, evil solos and whatnot, and to be completely honest, that
guy simply isn’t me. Bloodbath needs someone who can do it justice."
