Today’s ripoff contender: Seether vs. Tool

Posted by on May 16, 2017

Seether recently released their overall seventh studio album Poison the Parish last Friday (12) and while we were excited about it, it seems the song “Let You Down,” sounds a lot like Tool’s “Stinkfist.” Most bands find inspiration from other artists. However, is it taking the inspiration too far?

While Iron Maiden are currently facing a legal battle over “Hallowed Be Thy Name,” we can only wonder how many more artists used work from others and how have gotten away with it. For instance, the Foo Fighters seem to be working on new material since they premiered a new song “The Sky Is A Neighborhood” at the recent Acoustic -4-A-Cure concert. However, we can’t forget that their 2002 album One By One that included the song “Times Like These” has a very similar opening to the Cult’s “She Sells Sanctuary” from their 1985 album Love.
