Feersum Ennjin (Tool) Review
by Eric Bodrero
Feersum Ennjin sees visionary and ex-Tool member Paul D'Amour expanding his musical interests in electronic and metal music. This five song EP showcases not only what Paul has always been about, but what he can truly accomplish when he sets his genius mind and apt capabilities to work. After working with members of such bands as Autolux, Guns N' Roses, Failure, Medicine, Electric Company and of course Tool, Paul constructs a small but brilliant masterpiece in this five song, self-titled EP.
With a fine blend of hard rock, metal and electronic, Feersum Ennjin has a powerful and aggressive sound, but also sees shots of changeable and harmonic melodies and softer riffs that accentuate the bands harsh and abrasive sound. Epic masterpieces like "U-Boats" and "Solid Gold" place emphasis on experimentation, while "Dragon" and "Lines" keep the harsh side alive with slamming guitar solos and bellowing vocals. Feersum Ennjin should appeal to long time Tool fans, as well as for those searching for an expansion to the experimental and melodic metal genres.
