Adam Jones Shares Dizzying Demo Clip of “Descending”


Tool guitarist Adam Jones was in a giving mood late last night, so offered Tool fans a taste into the making of their long anticipated new album, Fear Inoculum. Jones released a one minute demo of one of the standout tracks on the album, “Descending.”

Writing music
Justin and I normally bring in potential riffs and demos – then the 3 of us tear them apart like wolves while DC stirs it up with the most opposite counter rhythm drumming (which actually does drives everything forward)?? Justin brought in this killer 7 melody which is now the main verse of the song. (He called it “bluegrass” as a working title). We jammed it a LONG time trying to find other cool working parts. Eventually I added the 9beat turnaround and a chorus. Then we arranged the intro -which came along very naturally. *The two guitar parts are recorded left and right stereo so feel free to try some headphones ~enjoy friends 

During a recent seminar, Danny Carey expressed interest in working with his bandmates on some new jams. At the time Carey said “I’m hoping, during this downtime, as soon as we’re able, maybe we’ll get together – Justin [Chancellor, bass] and I, and Adam [Jones, guitar] – maybe start hashing out some new Tool stuff in the meantime, maybe write another EP since we’re down and we can’t do anything else. I’m just kind of waiting on that, you know, waiting around but – that’s all I’ve really got going on, you know?”
