Danny Carey Says Tool’s “Ænima” Was Recently Remastered For Vinyl


It seems like some remasters of Tool‘s catalog could be popping up sometime in the future. The multi-platinum progressive metal band’s acclaimed drummer, Danny Carey, recently let slip in an interview with Rick Beato, that the band’s 3x multi-platinum 1996 sophomore album, “Ænima“, was recently remastered for vinyl.

When asked by Beato what he feels is ‘the best sounding Tool song’, Carey replied:

“Man we just remastered ‘Ænima‘… the album, I should say. ‘Stinkfist‘ and ‘Eulogy‘ both sound incredible on that. The low end, the way things are sit together and all that — those are two of my favorites, that stuck out. That’s for sure. I think it might be just because I recently heard it on the 180g vinyl like you were talking about. I was like ‘oh my God.’ I forgot how good it sounded. I hadn’t heard it in an analog form in ages.”

The topic wasn’t pursued further, so it remains unclear yet as to when we can expect to hear the apparent new pressing the band have planned for the album. Plans for the storied outfit to get to work on new material are tentatively in place for later this year after they wrap up their summer European/UK run.
