    Tool, Author & Punisher

    Tool’s triumphant return, Fear Inoculum, amalgamates a distortion onslaught, third-eye neurosis, and King Crimson intricacies. The L.A. quartet’s first album in 13 years strikes a balance between Ænima’s gut-punch basslines (“Pneuma”) and psychedelic curiosity in labyrinthine epic “7empest” and mushroom synth edible “Chocolate Chip Trip.” One-man band industrial manic Author & Punisher (Tristan Shone) opens.
