Tool wins Grammy Award for Best Metal Performance with “7empest”

To nobody’s surprise, progressive metal legends Tool have won a GRAMMY Award® for Best Metal Performance for their song “7empest”. The song, which is off the band’s comeback album Fear Inoculum from 2019, has to be one of the longest songs to win a Grammy award – clocking in at almost 16 minutes long. Danny Carey (drums) and Justin Chancellor (bass) accepted the awards at today’s Premiere Ceremony in Los Angeles.

“7empest” is from the band’s fifth studio album: Fear Inocolum (RCA Records). The 10-song collection arrived in late August, debuting at #1 on Billboard’s Top 200. The Los Angeles-based band has previously won three GRAMMY Awards®: Best Metal Performance (1998, “Ænima”), Best Metal Performance (2002, “Schism”) and Best Recording Package (2007, 10,000 Days).
