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, Rovi

Simply put , the best 2 ever do this witch can never be undone.
I agree with Chandler. These are Rock Compositions , not just songs. Yes, Maynard has a scathing critique on humanity. He is entitled to. Welcome to America.

Found Tool later in life. Had heard their songs on radio, but never connected the dots. Plain and simple; they f***ing know how to rock. Some stuff not so easy to swallow, but the good makes up for the mediocre ones. Rock on!!!!!!!
Megadeth sucks you racist simpleton. Tool has one good song. Maynard will burn in hell for being a blasphemous pos.
Awesome ��

You're a fool if u think tool ain't cool!(worlds greatest band a**hole.
Dude stop hatein on tool! If u hate them so much y are listening to them?

Now I don't see the argument between Tool, an Megadeath all that matters is there both great and awesome bands. Like one or like both idc but there's no reason to hate on either xD. Just had to say that after reading the comments.
Jose Bosch the same time as hotel business 666
Yeah bud? Will you?
Prog
As a 40 yr old black male who grew up in a north philly ghetto Tool is the ultimate example that good f##king sounds are just good f##king music no matter where you're from. Hail Tool!! The best thing metal gave us so far.
bambikush

How is megadeth and tool even in the same class, megadeth has no talent.
I think tool has a better sound then Megadeth his voice is to girly

Comparing the musical prowess of Tool to far lesser skilled or unrelated bands and forgetting to mention Maynard's incredible vocal tonality and range is courtesy of life pre-fame as an opera singer is what happens when an un-educated rookie equipped with an mp3 player gets handed a keyboard. Review & most comments are obviously posted by noobs; I bought Opiate on a CASSETTE and have witnessed what happens when they're on a stage more than a few times. S

Where are the F'n LYRICS folks?
To further elaborate, anyone looking for something of an acoustic Tool, Days of the New is the go-to band
