Tool

Tool's greatest breakthrough was to meld dark underground metal with the ambition of art rock. Although Metallica wrote their multi-sectioned, layered songs as if they were composers, they kept their musical attack ferociously at street level. Tool didn't. They embraced the artsy, bohemian preoccupations of Jane's Addiction while they simultaneously paid musical homage to the relentlessly bleak visions of grindcore, death metal, and thrash. Even with their post-punk influences, they executed their music with the aesthetic of prog rock, alternating between long, detailed instrumental interludes and lyrical rants in their songs.

Tool had a knack for conveying the strangled, oppressive angst that the alternative nation of the early '90s claimed as its own. So, Tool were able to slip into the definition of alternative rock during the post-Nirvana era, landing a slot on the third Lollapalooza tour in 1993, which helped their first full-length debut album, Undertow, rocket to platinum status. By the time the band delivered its belated follow-up, Ænima, in 1996, alternative rock had lost its grip on the mainstream of America, and Tool's audience had shaped up as essentially metal-oriented, which meant that the group and the record didn't capture as big an audience as their first album, despite debuting at number two on the charts. After a co-headlining slot with Korn on Lollapalooza '97 wrapped up, Tool remained on the road, supporting Ænima until well into the next year.

During the band's usual extended hiatus between albums, Maynard James Keenan decided to use his downtime productively by forming a side project, dubbed A Perfect Circle. The band's 2000 debut, Mer de Noms, was a surprise hit, while the ensuing tour was a sold-out success as well. With Tool breakup rumors swirling, the band put the speculation to rest by re-entering the recording studio and issuing the stopgap B-sides/DVD set Salival late the same year. Finally, May 2001 saw the release of Tool's third full-length release, Lateralus, which debuted at the number one position on the Billboard album chart and became the band's biggest hit. After the obligatory several-year sabbatical to pursue other projects, the group returned with another chart-topper, 10,000 Days, in 2006. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine & Greg Prato

You know if its the devils music then its Jesus' music as well. They are after all two arms of the same God. They're as much a part of the Lord's perfection as Mother Theresa, Napalm, microwave burritos, etc etc ...

You people are so ignorant to one of the most talented bands out there. Go listen to yourgang banging,girl beating,degr a d i n g rap music. Ask them to read a music board. Good luck. Leave this station and be on your way. Devil music??? So stupid.

Tool is the most synchronized bands on the planet. You could listen for years and still not be able to follow them. Let them do what they will. They will be back.

What the hell am I reading? These comments are crazy, man. If you like Tool, great, if you don't, leave. The more important thing now is that they're not active now, their music is not on iTunes and they haven't done any new music in ten years. People want them back, others don't. Puscifer is around, A Perfect Circle is on hold and one of the members of Tool is in the Lesser Key. Let's move on.

TOOL is an awesome band, they play what people like at that time. Drvil music? No dont be ridiculous. The greatest band ever? No dont be ridiculous. They are by far in my top ten favorites. If you think its devil music go back to your diarrhea music, the umber cause of suicide music. Country crap

Shut up Matty, the fact that these Tool guys are devil worshippers is so obvious I know because I heard their music and seen their album covers. Ample Proof.

To all of you saying tool is "evil" or "satanic" just because something seems strange to you, doesn't mean you should automaticall y label it evil, as that is a very unhealthy mind set to have. Just a word of advice, life is a gift and a blessing. Being more open minded and thinking before you speak might help you to enjoy your short time here on earth. :D

It's a pretty good write up about Tool and it's odd that Aenima didn't get the acceptance of Undertow and Lateralus with the critics and fans. I actually thought it was their best album.

this song, The Pot, reminds me of Laura Hall and Colton Pitonyak, UT students that murdered their friend and dismembered the body in the bathtub of his condo before fleeing and being apprehended in Mexico - they must have been sooohigh, self righteous a**holes...h o p e they are enjoying the food served to them by the TX prison system...stu p i d studid loosers.
