Industrial-rap veterans Dälek have good people in their corner. The duo are signed to Mike Patton's Ipecac label, and their latest album, Precipice, features a guest turn by none other than TOOL guitarist and visual arts guru Adam Jones. Jones, whose band enlisted Dälek to open for them in 2010, appears on the new single, "A Heretic's Inheritance," contributing both guitar and synth work to the eerie, rumbling cut. Hear it via its evocative music video above.
"The core of this was built by myself, Mike Manteca and Joshua Booth," explained Will Brooks, a.k.a. 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. 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!"
"I've been a fan of Dälek since they joined us on our 2010 tour," Jones added. "Working together was something we'd thrown around in the past so when Will 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."
Precipice is due out April 29th.
