Quite possibly the era’s most highly anticipated album, TOOL‘s latest LP, “Fear Inoculum”, arrived in August of 2019. Debuting at No. 1 on Billboard‘s Top 200, the album earned heaps of critical praise with NPR saying, “‘Fear Inoculum’ was worth the 13-year wait,” Revolver proclaiming the album “a masterpiece to be dissected for years to come” and Consequence saying the release finds “TOOL in peak performance.”
Last year, TOOL released “Opiate2”, a re-imagined and extended version of the 1992 EP’s title track and an accompanying short film, marking the band’s first new video in 15 years. The band also unveiled the first incarnation of “Fear Inoculum” vinyl, dubbed the Ultra Deluxe edition, the limited offering included five 180-gram vinyl discs emblazoned with a unique etching and accompanied by an elaborate pictorial booklet including never-before-seen artwork.
TOOL formed in 1990, releasing five studio albums: “Undertow” (1993),“Ænima” (1996),“Lateralus” (2001),“10,000 Days” (2006) and “Fear Inoculum” (2019); two EPs: “72826” (1991) and “Opiate” (1992),and the limited-edition boxset “Salival” (2000). The band has won four Grammy Awards: “Best Metal Performance” (1998, “Ænima”),”Best Metal Performance” (2002, “Schism”),”Best Recording Package” (2007, “10,000 Days”) and “Best Metal Performance” (2020, “7empest”).
