Tool Return From a Long Hiatus With ‘Fear Inoculum’

Tool Return From a Long Hiatus With ‘Fear Inoculum’
Tool’s first album in 13 years opens like a grievous European symphony drawn in electronic tones; what sounds like the chiming of a hammered dulcimer enters alongside Danny Carey’s tablas, which tag-team with kit drums, heavy electric guitar and bass. Maynard James Keenan, his voice still striking youthful — he turned 55 last spring — sings in prayer-like tones about contagion, venom, and immunity; about mania, spectacle, and exorcism. As Adam Jones’ phase-shifted guitar tones alternately suggest Turkish funk and Norwegian metal, the track unspools, building to a bonecrushing, double bass kick-drum-powered finish.

Mahershala Ali takes the lead in prison drama ‘Solitary’

Mahershala Ali is set to star in and serve as executive producer in the adaptation of Albert Woodfox memoir ‘Solitary’.

Based on the 2019 book, it tells the unforgettable life story of a man who served more than four decades in solitary confinement – in a 6-foot by 9-foot cell, 23 hours a day, in notorious Angola prison in Louisiana – all for a crime he did not commit. That Albert Woodfox survived was, in itself, a feat of extraordinary endurance against the violence and deprivation he faced daily. That he was able to emerge whole from his odyssey within America’s prison and judicial systems is a triumph of the human spirit.

Arrested often as a teenager in New Orleans, Woodfox was finally given a fifty-year sentence for the murder of a white guard during a robbery in 1972 – a crime that he never committed. Without a shred of actual evidence against him, the

Joe Trohman on the Damned Things’ Return and Fall Out Boy’s Future

Joe Trohman on the Damned Things’ Return and Fall Out Boy’s Future
From the start, the Damned Things’ existence seemed unlikely: What were two dudes from Fall Out Boy doing in a band with the guy from Anthrax? But Fob lead guitarist Joe Trohman and drummer Andy Hurley knew their hard rock, and ended up sounding right at home on the band’s 2010 debut album, Ironiclast, alongside Anthrax guitarist Scott Ian and singer Keith Buckley of the metalcore band Every Time I Die. Their excellent, just-released second album, High Crimes, though, is truly improbable, if only because it showed up with little

Frontman Maynard James Keenan suggested in February that the album would arrive between May and July, writing on Twitter, “Midway through mixing. Most likely be a few recalls. Then some arguing.

Can Seth Rogen's Invincible break Marvel and DC's superhero stranglehold?

Can Seth Rogen's Invincible break Marvel and DC's superhero stranglehold?
Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg are to adapt Robert Kirkman’s Invincible series for the big screen. Could this be the shakeup the comic-book adaptation needs?

Marvel and DC have often been a little prickly when it comes to others infringing on terrain they consider their own. A New York Daily News report estimated in 2013 that the two publishers had sued at least 35 people over the previous decade, just for using the term “superhero”. What’s perhaps more surprising is that, despite the current boom in comic-book movies, the big two haven’t really needed to call in the lawyers to ensure their virtual duopoly at the multiplex. Of the top 20 highest-grossing superhero movies of all time, all but one are based on a property that originally appeared in comics published by either Marvel or DC. And the exception – 2004 Pixar animation The Incredibles – is in any case now owned by Marvel parent company Disney.
