The first video that emerged featured a rather listless looking crowd but this more recent one has a cleaner audio and no visual distractions…There’s no word on its title, or possible release date, but it’s clear Morello (a man who has never been afraid to push the electronic boundaries of shredding technology) has upped his relationship with electronic music a level or two lately.
Two weeks ago he posted this image of himself, Skrillex and Jahlil Beats on his Facebook…We’ll keep you posted on further developments….

After a bludgeoning main riff, Morello often likes to downshift to sparser textures during a song’s verse. 2’s syncopated single-note line with a tight palm-mute to cop the driving funk feel reminiscent of “Guerilla Radio.” For added vibe try rocking a wah pedal back and forth rhythmically in an eighth-note pattern.
Another cool Morello stunt involves mimicking a DJ’s turntable scratch noises by using a pick or slide to scrape and tap the strings and then processing the resulting sounds through a Digitech Whammy pedal. 3 illustrates how to nail a similar effect by tapping the side of your pick on the 12th fret of the B and G strings with a rapid-fire staccato attack, then sliding it up three frets in regular rhythmic intervals.
If post-grunge heavy guitar were to choose a patron saint, the most righteous nominee for canonization would likely be Rage Against the Machine’s Tom Morello.

4, inspired by the classic riffs from “Bombtrack,” “Bulls on Parade,” and “Down Rodeo,” shows Morello’s penchant for octave jumps.It’s a classic-sounding Chuck Berry rock and roll tune, and you can hear it below. The record will feature the first new recordings in nearly four decades by the founding rock and roll legend, who passed away on March 18 at the age of 90.Comprised of 10 new recordings, eight of which were written by Berry, .Drummer Danny Carey revealed this month that the long-awaited follow-up to 2006’s would arrive in 2018, adding: “I’m saying 'definitely.' We’ll probably have it done in the first half [of the year] if things go as planned.”Morello later posted a picture of himself in the studio with three members of the band and wrote: “Had the honor of being the first outsider to hear new Tool music today!Still just instrumentals but sounded epic, majestic, symphonic, brutal, beautiful, tribal, mysterious, deep, sexy and VERY Tool. So excited to hear the record when it’s finished.” Had the honor of being the first outsider to hear new #TOOL music today!!“I like to release records and write things a little more quickly than those guys like to write,” he told Consequence of Sound. As far as the way Danny, Adam [Jones], and Justin [Chancellor] write, it’s a very tedious and long process, and they’re always going back over things and questioning what they did and stepping back and going back further.“I can’t write melodies until the footings are in place.
