Hear Tool Guitarist Adam Jones Guest On New Dälek Track “A Heretic’s Inheritance”


Tool guitarist Adam Jones has lent his talents to a new track by the name of “A Heretic’s Inheritance” from experimental hip hop duo Dälek. The group’s namesake, MC Dälek (aka Will Brooks,) commented of this new guest feature, offering:

“The core of this was built by myself, Mike Manteca, and Joshua Booth. 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!”

Jones himself also commented of his involvement:

“I’ve been a fan of Dälek since they joined us on our 2010 tour. 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.”

A music video for the song can be found below, with the song serving as the final advance single from Dälek‘s upcoming album “Precipice“, due out April 29th on Ipecac Recordings.
