TOOL/Volto drummer Danny Carey has been filmed playing with and talking about the Mandala drum, an electronic drum pad that has near infinite possibilities. Danny talks about how he uses the seven (!!!) pads in his live set-up as well as how he utilizes them to make the drums part of the music rather than just a simple beat. You can watch this video below.
Although no word has yet been released on a release date for a new TOOL album, it has been announced on the official TOOL website that writing is well underway. Knowing TOOL and their writing and release patterns, I’d say that the earliest we’re looking at a new album is the end of this year but more likely early to spring 2013.
