TOOL begins a two-night stint in Toronto this evening, during their extensive, sold out North American tour. The tour, which sees the band performing in some cities for the first time in over a decade, has received widespread accolades with the Los Angeles Times calling it “impeccable,” the Chicago Tribune describing the outing as a “twisting multimedia rollercoaster of a concert” and The Arizona Republic saying it’s “a visually breathtaking night of dystopian art-rock spectacle.”

Fear Inoculum (http://smarturl.it/TOOLFIa) arrived on Aug. 30 following years of anticipation. The album debuted at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 and earned heaps of critical praise with NPR saying, “Fear Inoculum was worth the 13 year wait,” Revolver proclaiming the 10-track album “a masterpiece to be dissected for years to come” and Consequence of Sound saying the release finds “TOOL in peak performance.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: Though I’ve always considered myself more of a casual fan of the music of Tool, I still applaud the phenomenal achievements they have found happening with the new music from the diehards who have obviously missed them very, very much. At the time of this update, I am still hoping to catch the group when they land in Brooklyn for a show at the Barclays Center. What do you readers think about these added dates? Is the group coming closer to you now and will you attend? Chime in down below in the comments section and I will see you next time.
