Tool guitarist Adam Jones provided some atmospheres and riffs on the brand new Dälek single "A Heretic's Inheritance." Check it out below and definitely give Dälek a listen if you haven't before – it's a great mix of industrial metal leaning vibes and straightforward hip hop. Not to mention Dälek has been on the road with bands like Godflesh, Isis, and Mastodon in the past.
"I've been a fan of Dälek since they joined us on our 2010 tour," said Jones. "Working together was something we'd thrown around in the past so when Will came to me with 'A Heretic's Inheritance' I, of course, instantly said yes and began sharing ideas with him within a couple of days."
“The core of this was built by myself, Mike Manteca, and Joshua Booth,” added Will Brooks, aka MC Dälek. “I ain’t big on features on Dälek albums … but this one is different. Listening to the rough of this joint late night, I knew who’s sound would work perfectly. We’d talked about doing something together for a minute now. It begins with this.
"Peace to my brother Adam Jones from the legendary Tool for adding another dimension to this piece. His guitars and synths say all the things I couldn’t say with my voice, so they got their own section to truly sing on in the final mix. I am humbled to have you on this joint fam, and love how seamlessly your sound fits in our sonic world!”
Dälek will release Precipice on April 29. Pre-orders are available here.
