    Fuck man, I was doing that too, back in 2009... That was almost 10 years ago. I remember vaguely having heard about some guy called "bulb" back then, I was super into Cloudkicker and "Uneven Structure" (which back then was just Eggeh's demos and teaser tracks). How time flies.

    EDIT: Cloudkicker has had 9 full-length releases since then, Periphery had 4 (5 if you count Alpha and Omega separately, 6 if you count Clear), TesseracT had 3, Meshuggah had 2, and Tool HAS STILL HAD $#%&ING ZERO.

    I loved listening to Maynard on the Joe Rogan podcast talking about this. He made it seem like he's just been twiddling his thumbs, making wine, and doing BJJ while waiting on the other guys. I guess that's what happens in a band full of perfectionists.

    But it's a good thing that Tool and APC will finally release music this year

    So...did the celebrity whose celebrity is limited to sso.org ever find out why he posts here on sso.org?

    Like, he put the question out there and the response was a big circlejerk around him - But that can’t be the official answer, can it?

    Are you that 'thisfilter' dude who posted some Meshuggah cover during the July 2005 MX Tabs Guitar Forum Metal Competition?

    "defiantly" still a band. Lol. I'd say that's accurate.

    I hope tool doesn't release anything. Overrated yawnfest imo.

    Although, I kinda hope they do. It'll be the duke nukem forever kinda thing. So much time and hype building that nothing can live up to. Tool will stop being that "great band that hasn't released anything" and become "that band people used to like but made a shitty album so no one cares anymore."

    Tool could wait another 10 years and that album will still be big.

    Except what shitty albums have they ever released? Exactly. They're not the ones pushing the hype anyway; never have been. It's the fans doing the hyping.

    I'm excited for another album, though I haven't listened to them for a long, long time. Their albums take a certain mindset to listen to, and you can't just listen for one song -- it must be the whole album, for me at least. I have the attention span for that sort of thing though, so maybe it doesn't make sense for the masses.
