    Wow, this is great. Lopez had a huge influence on me as a drummer, good to see he's back to making music.

    Can we assume he was successful in getting help for his anxiety problems? If so, that's great, regardless of his new band (which is also great).

    As the article states Martin had some serious demons (no "of the fall" puns people!) to deal with which is why he quit drumming and the last thing I read was that it might be permanent.

    The fact that he is back to drumming and deciding to release music is awesome for him as a person :yesway: loved his work with Opeth so much.

    I'm kinda digging it. Nothing really new here but it's solid. Looking forward to hearing more.

    Literally everything about that song reminded me of Tool. Even the album artwork... :lol:

    Sounds awesome! Definitely sounds A LOT like Tool, but that is a good thing in my eyes. There are almost no bands that sound like Tool and one album every 5 years isn't enough Tool for me.

    The vocals remind me of a combo of riverside and tool.

    The vocalist even looks like Maynard. Hey - I could care less, I'll take it.
    A metaler Toolesque band = :hbang:
