Sounds | Wheel, Movement

Het metalen alter ego van Tool is terug! Movement is een sterke prog metal track om vingers en duimen bij af te likken. Pakkend ritmes en tempowissels, harde en zachte passages en een gezonde dosis drive stuwen het nummer vooruit. En dat allemaal binnen de vijf minuten. Knap!

ter info Discussing the deep and poignant meaning behind the track, guitarist and vocalist James Lascelles divulges, “This song was inspired by the rhetoric surrounding the murder of George Floyd in the USA in early 2020. The conflation, false equivalence and venom, liberally used to devalue another human's life was shocking, especially when the angriest among us were unamenable to logic, empathy or even basic common sense.

Ultimately, the song aims to criticise an American social structure that absolutely should be changed, regardless of its origin; is it a consequence of literal institutional racism (as racism is still clearly prevalent) or the beginning of a wider conversation about the role of police in society and the prevalent use of excessive force? We think all of these factors should be part of the discussion to change policing in the US to prevent incidents like this from happening.”
