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

That bio blows. Jane's Addiction should not be brought up ever. King Crimson as an influence definitely.

There's my fat nuscac hanging under my beautiful male rooster!! C**k!! You remind of my first Tool shirt..23 yrs ago..They early fans will pick up on that one! Like I was saying. Is a person ignorant to be able to reach the hearts, souls, and minds like Tool does! Or is a person that listens to music they don't like and hassles people for fun! Go away your too ignorant to get this level of music. @nutsac &@nicko!

I'm a 60 YO child of the 60's. I've heard of Tool off and on over the years, but for some reason I'm really into them right now. Thanks for letting me listen to them here. They aren't on Spotify. I have decided I'll have to buy all their cds, much as I hate to have hard media around. Their music is genius. You just don't hear that intricate precision anywhere else. Love them.

Bashing on your band.

I don't know why anyone would leave hateful comments unless they were completely ignorant to what the band stood for or their music. You probably weren't born yet when they started making music. Actually wondering what music you were listening to for tool to even show up on your station. Because I'm almost positive you are listening to crap or some one hit wonder. Just to let you know tool paved the way for so many other just like other had paved the way for tool. So to bash on one is probably

He takes his hate out on musicians who have talent. But listens to nickelback, justin beiber an s**t. Just a lonely little boy who brings his hate out on music threads. It would be different if he knew what he was talking about. None of it makes any sence... If anybody knows this kid PLZ smack the s**t outa this wanna be hater.

Don't read this because it actually works. you will be kissed on the nearest Friday by the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. However if you don't post this you will die in two days. Now you started reading this so don't stop. This is so scary put this on at least 5 songs in 143 minutes. When done press f6 and your lovers name will come on. The screen in big letters. This is so scary because it actually works

Con't from below: Cause it makes them feel powerful and in control. But THEY are the weak ones. Best thing to do is IGNORE them. They'll find victims elsewhere.

Seriously- why do jerks like Nicko, Fatnut*** spend lots time to post hateful, immature, rude comments on bands pages they don't like? I know why, cause they're BULLIES. Bullies want attention & to get a reaction from people. Even if its negative attention like all you guys responding to their comments- it feeds their ego. It all stems from their lack of love or attention at home from parents or they had/have verbally abusive critical parents. They're empty inside emotionally & put down others c
