On January 10th, in San Diego, prog-metal powerhouse Tool played their first show of 2020, welcoming one-man industrial-doom project Author & Punisher along for the ride. Four days later, the one-two-punch tour package hit San Jose's SAP Center. The headliners played an epic 14-song set encompassing expansive, mystical cuts spanning from 1996's Ænima to last year's smash comeback album, Fear Inoculum. Photographer Raymond Ahner was there to catch the action — see some of his standout shots of both Tool and Author & Punisher below.
