Nergal Visits Tool In The Studio, Shares Rehearsal Footage

Tom Morello was the first outsider to hear some of Tool‘s new music back in December, and last night Behemoth‘s front man got to experience it as well. Nergal, Morgan Ågren, Paul De Maio, and others were invited to Tool‘s studio to watch them rehearse the new material, and Nergal shared his experience online. He states, “I was privileged to witness Tool rehearsing today… lucky me u’ll say hm?? Well, yes, lucky me. It was splendid experience to see this visionary band perform in the same room. THANK U Justin for invitation..it was pretty fuckin’ inspiriting and unworldly!!!

Nergal also shared some of the rehearsal on his Instagram story, which you can now watch below via ToolArchive’s YouTube Channel!

Morgan Ågren added, “Amazing day… got invited to see TOOL rehearse in their studio. Sat on a chair just a few feet in front of Danny’s drums, with Adam Jones on my right and Justin Chancellor on my left. Just before they started to rehearse, Andy turns over to me and says ‘you have to imagine what this will sound like with vocals later’ and then they were off, and it sounded so great!! Hypnotic stuff!! They played 5-6 songs from their upcoming album that the whole TOOL community have been waiting for a long time now. Big honor to be invited there at all. Supernice guys as well. After this we went to see Meshuggah in Hollywood, who did an amazing concert, totally ripping. And the same morning before all this, we passed by Steve Vai’s studio to give him some Ehrlund microphones to try out. What a day… Back to Sweden now. Thank you universe.
