Adam Jones revealed how he decided to make collaboration with Dälek in the interview:
“I’ve been a fan of Dälek since they joined us on our 2010 tour. Working together was something we’d thrown around in the past so when Will (Brooks, vocalist) came to me with ‘A Heretic’s Inheritance’ I, of course, instantly said yes and began sharing ideas with him within a couple of days.”
Adam Jones shared how they recorded Dälek‘s new album (Precipice).
“The core of this was built by myself, Mike Manteca, and Joshua Booth,” added Will Brooks, aka MC Dälek. “I ain’t big on features on Dälek albums … but this one is different. Listening to the rough of this joint late night, I knew who’s sound would work perfectly. We’d talked about doing something together for a minute now. It begins with this”
Adam Jones also liked the guitarist’s contributions to the track:
“Peace to my brother Adam Jones from the legendary Tool for adding another dimension to this piece. His guitars and synths say all the things I couldn’t say with my voice, so they got their own section to truly sing on in the final mix. I am humbled to have you on this joint fam, and love how seamlessly your sound fits in our sonic world!”
This single, and the Mikel Elam/Paul Romano-created video, serve as the last preview of the 10-track album that Stereogum described as “Built on boom-bap drums, smeary electronic sounds all over it. Finds their classic, influential sound in fine form.”
