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

His hatred is still evident in his music even if he doesn't yell...

So if I'm hearing you correctly Maynard has ( As Ozzy has so brilliantly written in Crazy Train) learned how to Love and forgot how to hate...BS... .

So savethissw your saying Jesus has Power. Interesting, , , BTW there is still anguish in Maynards writings goofball, a deep hurt that has not been healed...

I'm enjoying this now. Will always. With my head down. And my eyes closed....

So you don't think Jesus is great, he has taken your mind hostage and you're a vessel that tries to spread 'him' to others.... There's a word for that...or a movie, the puppet masters! Or Outbreak, either way Donald Sutherland can end this!

Maynard has clearly documented that he doesn't yell during most new songs bc that frustration is no longer inside him, bc his previous songs were 'selfishly' therapeutic. Stop listening to music if you can't process it. Go back to Books,they are more straight forward, then poems, then maybe you'll be ready for these progressive musicians.

Umm, if you believe in conformity and a singular way of life, that's a conservative core value,don't pretend politics hold the monopoly there.

Matthew, when it comes to you saying valid things, it's a big miss :(

Dude Maynard's not growing, he is actually self destructing it's apparent in his music. He stays miserable never healing.

Not religious actually hate world religion. Just a Jesus Freak ,who wants to share His Love and Great Hope with everyone I come in contact with.

Not conservative don't even vote. My views are not of this world they come from a Greater Higher Power Who desperately Loves His creation and has provided a way to be with Him, that is the Messiah, the Christ.

Haha! Matty and Indiana are low brow conservative religious zealots, I've dealt with them before.
The lyrics aren't for you're agreeable minds, he's always stayed the lyrics are a growing tool meant for his personal growth, not yours.
Matty, try a adult name before you tangle with adult content and lyrics.

This song was on the Aenema album. IMO, easily the best album that they have ever made. So many epic songs on that album, literally from beginning to end...Not even one bad song. It's in the top 3 of my favorite albums EVER, FROM ANY GENRE! Love how drummer Danny Carey plays empty glass beer bottles as the drum into. Only Tool could pull something like that off. Every member of the band is crazy talented and masters of their instruments. And an amazing band to see live. Even better if ur tri
