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

I'm seeing a lot of comments filled with idiocy here... 1. There is a difference between being atheist and non-religiou s . 2. Even if they WERE atheist, singing about atheism has the same motivation behind it as singing about religion.

Best band ever; TOOL
the grudge
Tool is still cool. Needs rogaine and the bosley hair restorer. Lippo suction. I like Becky G, Shakira and Fiona Apple. I bet no one but me knows who Vanessa Carltn it on here.
tool is in my soul call me fool but I'm in tool army
Chicane there's a skip button, I'm sure that Justin Bieber will pop up next. Don't worry, Pandora sometimes mixes incorrectly, getting TOOL in your Spice Girls/Miley Cyrus station...
Follow for follow (Read my bio please)
Not sure why Maynard started A Perfect Circle Jerks cause that band sucks too. Two thumbs down for this blasphemous POS and his s**tty bands.
tool makes awesome music videos. Japanese metal is cool without needing to know the lyrics.
I've NEVER been drawn to music for it's lyrics. Tool just makes great music whether your an atheist or not.
Ive hear chevelle, they are the new nickel back
I guess Opiate didn't happen? This Bio is terrible
tool is for fajets. seriously though who's idea was it to profess our atheism in a song. oooo look at me I'm the first neckbeard band. Everyone who listens to tool thinks they are special for listening to tool. You fajets are wrong.

These people suck at the bios. No music knowledge at all. Get it right or get right the f**k out the office.
a perfect circle sucks. so does chevelle.
Bio does not even begin to accurately describe all that is Tool...
This bio is so lame. -.-

How could u not like Tool!?!??... .
Amazing band.

As a musician I can say this is one of the more technical and great sounding bands of our time. Enjoy music made by bands like this. All new music is generic and has been done before. This makes this band pure genius and classically genuine. F**k swag.
That's a really stupid quote. I dont know many science based atheists would buy in to a pretty common scare tactic that theists have been using for ages. Believe in god or you're screwed! Dont believe in god or you're screwed!

We all have been duped by an entity, a predator that calls itself God and feeds on our human souls to provide it sustenance. A master at deception it has been preying on us all for thousands of years and yes it has been our choice to except it. Go ahead give your soul to it...LOCKE
