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

You're probably a gay hipster. Ya f**got!
Music for gay hipsters.
If you react to haters comments (nicko) , you're just giving them what they want.. A response. I'm pretty sure every person who loves Tool doesn't give a s**t what other ppl think about them. They're simply a great band. F**k the haters.

ONE OF THE BEST F****** INTROS EV.....A!
tool is a great band. they talk about some controversia l s**t. I don't even agree with some of there content. However, the way they can integrate their music and their lyrics is brilliant. Not many bands have the ability to evoke such intense emotion. I think it is important to keep in mind that everyone has differing opinions on all kind of subjects. why does someone have to be right or wrong...why do we have to agree or disagree? who cares? It is easy to be tough on line.
To phrase the question correctly you have to ask by whom, you crap eating ignoramus f*rt knocker! I doubt Don knows & that's far from any of your concern (or blatant lack thereof)! If you want to ask stupid questions or make stupid comments do it somewhere else like on the Pantera board or something, though I'll tear u up there or wherever u appear so maybe just piss off instead!
U people talking about Maynard taking it are a bunch of f**king idiots...his lyrics are simply metaphors used to tell a story..if u don't like it don't f**king listen

Great music, but reading these posts is like listening at the door of a junior high boys restroom. Are you all 13?
New fun facts with Ry.. I recently gave some facts about Maynard owning a vineyard. In his impeccable taste he named it Merkin which is a wig prostitutes used to hide their puss filled boils and sores around the genital area. Cadeceus cellars is in Jerome Az. Cadeceus is most famous for being the rod Hermes or Mercury held. The 2 snakes wrapped around the rod is used as a symbol of healing by the medical field. For more fun facts or something to add. Hit me up.
What does everyone think about Maynard's other side project, Pucifer ?
Tool is the best band that I have ever listened to in my entire life.
tlandry043
Garbage music. Can this dirtbag just go to hell already. Speed up the process
People who say that TOOL's music isn't anyting spectacular are clearly people who listen to f**king Nickelback :(
