TOOL bass player Justin Chancellor teamed up with FEVER 333 drummer Aric Improta for a new track called “EXU“. You can check out the music video for the song below.
Kevin Garcia and Aric Improta directed the visuals for the clip, while the track is also available to purchase at this location.
As for the inspiration behind the song, the duo say: “Exu (aka Eshu): A spirit. The Master of Roads. He determines whether someone’s path is clear or blocked with obstacles. Exu determines how easy or challenging an individual’s life will be. His name, appearance, and personalities slightly differ wherever he manifests. Perceptions of Exu depend upon spiritual convictions of the perceiver. If you are afraid of him and expect the worst, don’t invoke him. He can read your heart and may have fun fulfilling your expectations. However, he can be a dedicated guardian and a very benevolent provider. There is no illness he cannot cure. Invoke Exu for protection from evil. He fears nothing; there is no road he is afraid to travel.”
