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

Don't read this. You will be kissed on the nearest possible Friday By the love of your life. Tomorrow will be the best day of your life. Now you started reading this don't stop this is so freaky. But if you read this and ignore it then you will have very bad luck. Put this on 15 songs in 143 minutes. When you are done press the space bar and your crushes name will appear in big letters on this screen. This is so freaky it actually works

I have spent many nights listing to tool, APC, and Pucifur and every time I do pure heart goes onto a canvas or piece of paper. Even if they never come out with anymore again they have already done so much right in so many ways...

There's no band like tool. There never was one and there never will be. The only band I can think that has pushed the envelope like tool was rush musically and lyrically. And with only three guys. Both have a cult following. Impressive.

Some of the sickest songs of the 90's came from this band. I love the dark content of the songs and how harmonized they are. Alice in chains and tool the best two bands of the 90's in my opinion. Rip layne and rock on Maynard.

In my opinion (everyone has them) well said Adam can't stand Rap, Hip Hop, Country or Pop, again in my opinion these genre are weak... But some people like apple and others oranges and some like both, to each their own. Won't dispute the talent in all genres. It's clear or else these artist would not be making millions. Just not my cup of tea. Will always be a metal head/ rocker till the day I die....
