Biography

Los Angeles, California, United States (1990 – present)

Formed around 1990 in Los Angeles, California, United States, by drummer Danny Carey, guitarist Adam Jones, vocalist Maynard James Keenan, and original bassist Paul d’Amour, Tool is a band that is most noted for combining alternative metal with a wide variety of progressive structures, irregular time signatures and lyrics that range from angry diatribes to meditations on philosophical and social matters.

After performing a handful of shows in the Los Angeles area and up the West Coast, they toured in the United States with Primus in the summer of 1992 in support of their EP Opiate. Their first full length recording, Undertow, was released in 1993.

Emerging with a groovy heavy sound on their first release, when the genre was dominated by post-punk, they were later seen at the top of the industrial movement with the release of their second full-length studio album Ænima in 1996, the first recording the band made after original bassist Paul D’Amour left the band, replaced by Justin Chancellor. After an ongoing evolution of their sound and continuous efforts to unify musical experimentation, visual arts, and a message of personal evolution on Lateralus (2001), their most recent album 10,000 Days (2006), as well as respective tours, they are generally described as a style-transgressing act and part of and .

    I always cum so hard when listening to Tool that the dildo shoots straight out of my ass with the power of a tornado along with the 15 illegal immigrants I keep up there.

    v making actions that delays Tool in their work on the new album should be considered a crime against humanity and dealt with accordingly.

    "It was reported several months ago that Tool were facing a legal battle related with Cam De Leon‘s work with the band, and the insurance associated with that legal action. Legal documents were found, and discussed both here and other forums online. For some the legalese used was a little overwhelming and it wasn’t necessarily clear what was actually going on." on Fourth Eye. Just remember they're being drained from this lawsuit and don't forget that they all have kids now. Just a reminder for people who are not patient. Listen to Track 3 on Lateralus and tell me what you think the premise of that song means. Until then, TOOL ARMY!

    A lot of the are good, it depends on my mood.. I wanked mostly to Metallica and Megadeth, but felt kinda empty afterwards. That doesn't happen with Tool.

    Why is this band always subjected to criticism ? They love to troll, that doesn't them make worse o better musicians, they simply like to keep people outside of their comfort area, including media, yeah they can be obnoxious, pretentious, so what? they are not gonna come down off the stage, and have a beer w/u, no. They already have friends, and dont need more...sad but true.

    It took me a long time to "get it", but I guess I'm finally on board.
