Mike Portnoy recently speaks about TOOL‘s Danny Carey drum performances. Portnoy also explains what he thinks about SLAYER albums.

He is one of the most known drummers around the world. After leaving in DREAM THEATER he joining several bands also making solo sessions and more. In last summer Mike Portnoy reveals for Spotify CEO’s thoughts about the music album. For this comment, Portnoy also posted an Instagram post and accused Daniel Ek with “What a greedy little bitch… It’s bad enough that he’s worth billions based on stealing and giving away other musician’s music.”

During his last video on the official YouTube channel, Mike Portnoy talked about the TOOL drummer Danny Carey and SLAYER albums:

“An experimental album, and strangely enough, my only Tool vinyl. This is the ‘Lateralus’ album but honestly, I really should have all of those, mainly beginning with the ‘Aenima’ album. I think that was around ’96. Everything they put out – the ‘Aenima’ album, then this, then [2006’s] ‘10,000 Days,’ and then even their latest one [2019’s ‘Fear Inoculum’] – those four albums took about 25 years to get out but every one of them is such quality, such depth and…

“I mean, the rhythms, and the odd time signatures, and the patterns, and it’s so intricately interwoven – it’s no wonder they take so long to put out albums because the quality on each one is just so deep. So yeah, I can’t say enough great things about Tool.

I love them, Danny Carey is an amazing drummer, one of my favorite guys out there today. In any case, all of those albums are all equally incredible, so I need to get up my game and get those other ones on vinyl as well.”

He also added about SLAYER albums:

“We are starting with Slayer! I have all the original vinyl back there – I have the original ‘Show No Mercy’ and ‘Hell Awaits,’ but this was one when I had to buy reissues. This is, in my opinion, their masterpiece – ‘Reign in Blood,’ 1986. I think the whole album is like 28 minutes, maybe 30 minutes, just absolute perfection from start to finish. One of those metal albums that goes…

It’s just completely relentless from start to finish, but it’s such a compact start-to-finish listen and pure perfection.”
