A Perfect Circle

Formed by Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan and former Tool guitar tech Billy Howerdel, A Perfect Circle is an extension of the alt-metal-fused-with-art rock style popularized by Tool in the early to mid-'90s. While similar to Tool in intensity and melancholy, A Perfect Circle is less dark and more melodic, with a theatrical, ambient quality that incorporates occasional strings and unusual instrumentation.

After the release of Ænima in 1996, Tool found themselves in the midst of an extended legal battle with former label Freeworld Entertainment. When the dust settled two years later, the band reached a 50/50 joint venture agreement for future recordings and, feeling a little burned out, decided to take some time off. It was at this point that Keenan joined up with Howerdel and Paz Lenchantin to form A Perfect Circle. Keenan had met Howerdel in 1992 when Tool opened for Fishbone. Howerdel had been Fishbone's tech at the time and had played Keenan a few of his songs. Keenan was impressed and the two talked of collaborating in the future. However, the opportunity didn't present itself until after the Freeworld settlement. With Keenan on vocals, Howerdel on guitar, and Lenchantin on bass, the trio recruited ex-Failure and Enemy member Troy Van Leeuwen on guitar and ex-Vandals and Guns N' Roses member Josh Freese on drums.

The quintet rehearsed together but didn't announce the formation of a new band until performing for the first time on August 15, 1999, at a benefit concert at the Viper Room in Los Angeles. Howerdel, who had been composing songs for years, as well as working with bands such as the Smashing Pumpkins and Nine Inch Nails, became the band's chief songwriter and producer. A Perfect Circle released their debut album, Mer de Noms, in 2000. Thirteenth Step followed in 2003, and the covers album Emotive appeared in 2004.

Shortly after the release of their DVD set aMOTION, A Perfect Circle went on hiatus. During their downtime, Keenan went on to record albums with his solo project, Puscifer, while Howerdel began making albums with his new band, Ashes Divide. While rumors of the band writing songs cropped up now and again, A Perfect Circle returned (to the stage, at least) in 2010, and released their first new song, "By and Down," on their 2013 greatest-hits compilation, Three Sixty. ~ Tracy Frey

Tool has a song about this too ironicly enough. The pot. It's about people who hide behind a mask of religion to criticize and judge others. Yet they do all the same things they judge others for. Nobody in this world is perfect. If humanity wasn't flawed we wouldn't have any diversity. Everyone would be boring, the same and perfect. We would have no music, no art, no inspiration and no drive to move forward. It is through our flawed nature we have evolved and discovered. And it gives us a goal t

Indiana please stop. You are making a fool of yourself and a mockery of your religion. Your obsession with Maynard is unhealthy. Also you so harshly judge and criticize him. The Bible teaches you to forgive your fellow neighbor and to leave the judgement of man to god. you can't begin to understand what lies in that man's heart. Yes you can get a picture fromhis songs but how he truly feels is only for him and God to know. Before you can begin to heal others you must first heal yourself. The amo

You see it's just not about his mothers death... His Mom's death may have caused this but he has a deep rooted hatred for our Savior. His LYRICS ie music Juan makes me feel DEEPLY saddened for him. This is the very definition of PASSION. The Passion that led Christ and nailed Him to the cross. His cup for our wrong doings...Ris i n g again for us conquering death so that we my have everlasting life...

How the savior has abandoned you
F**k your God
Your Lord and your Christ
He did this
Took all you had and
Left you this way
Still you pray, you never stray
Never taste of the fruit
You never thought to question why
It's not like you killed someone
It's not like you drove a hateful spear into his side
Praise the one who left you
Broken down and paralyzed
He did it all for you

GOD says this is a LIE...

I don't hate Marynard. In fact I am commanded to Love Him. It would be selfish for me not to share Gods Love with him and others. The most valuable intimate thing I know is this Truth and it's always worth talking about. For me this is loving others. Call me hypocritical , insult don't bother me. I'm not judging anyone (Only the Father in Heaven has that Authority)I just providing answers.

Life on earth is temporal...T h i s matter effects eternity. Most important decision one could ever make is to enter into a relationship with a Loving God so it's worth you (Juan) getting your feathers ruffled. No hard feelings my friend...Lov e is the answer for Maynard's pain and anyone else feeling hopelessly desperate in this life here on earth and this Love has a name...

Ah but it has everything to do with the music. Many are being led down a very dark path because of what he writes. I'm expressing myself in response to his lyrics. Commenting on his crappy lyrics (this is a comment thread). Some even refer to him as a god. I'm calling him a liar and the truth is not in him. Again there is a better way even for Maynard.The Blasphemy that he commits in his lyrics is forgivable.T h i s matter is the single most important matter one could ever mull over in their mind

Finally, do not take this as a coming down onto you--I am responding to your comment, and this will be the last that I post regarding all of this given that I myself am taking a comment exchange on Pandora beyond what I feel Pandora and comments on its threads should deal with. Once again, so as not to be deemed hypocritical , I simply intend to clarify to you exactly what I meant when I comment that Pandora should be kept about the music...
Report as inappropriate
But even this is flawed in my opinion--why bring hell into it? Make it about the MUSIC! Not about where a song will or won't send you once your heart ceases to beat and the electrical signals between the neurons of your brain cease to fire. Leave that for religion to deal with--and leave Pandora for the music!
Report as inappropriate
And I didn't on Mr. Ceballos, I made a general statement that applied to the dialoge and subject matter of the exchange that both you and him had when he asked if you were a Christian, which also has NOTHING to do with the music. I partially agree with your prior comment when you state: Listening to music won't send you to Hell...In fact it can enlighten and solidify what you believe.
Report as inappropriate
I will re-quote myself: I await the day that Pandora is treated like the Holiday dinner table: leave the politics and religion out of a place that should be for the music! Commentary regarding the subject matter of the lyrics of a particular song is inherently about the music because the lyrics are an integral part of every song/musical piece that possesses them. But taking this even further is truly superfluous.
Report as inappropriate
Again, This has ABSOLUTELY NOTHING to do with MUSIC, and I'm not going to get into my opinion of the actual presence of any of these types of comment exchanges on Pandora for fear of being deemed hypocritical . . .

Plus, before all of these comments, you were trying to make a point there is a better way full of Faith, Hope, and Love and the greatest of these is Love. The Saviors Love surly heals and restores a broken soul....

He is using his medium to do what every other human being in history has done since the beginning of time: express himself; whatever that may mean. In this case, how he feels regarding his mother's death and the blasphemy (for him) of how she died even though she possessed, and I quote you once again, blind faith.

Furthermore, even eariler in this feed, you mentioned Maynard James Keenan being guilty of blasphemy--n o t trying to speak for him, but, do you really think he cares what he is guilty of at the time he wrote the lyrics of this song?

You didn't understand my meaning--yes , a huge part of music is the theme/subjec t matter derived from the lyrics written by the artist.

He has freely allowed it to another. Jesus is Lord.... His kingdom reigns from above....

In a Perfect Circle interview disc Maynard states himself the song was written about his mother Judith and her blind faith. Not disputing that songs can be poetic however not in this case. Furthermore it is most definitely not written in a party point of view. This song is blatantly addressed to Christ Himself (blasphemy) for which there is forgiveness. Matthew 12:31
