I hope you'll all be glad to know that Tool is gathering a bit of a fanbase over on these fair shores now. They are playing at the Ozzfest (Ozzy Osbourne's big festival) this year, which I'd love to see, but no money or time, so I can't.

Unfortunately, their new found underground cool means people keep asking to borrow my two albums (Ænima and Lateralus). Grr. I should really stop playing them in college all the time.

Oh awesome. Of course, I missed seeing them the last time they were with Ozzfest and will probably end up missing them again sadly I would make the time, but can't make the money

Haha, tell them to go buy them themselves At the beginning of last semester some guy came into my room and intoduced himself etc. He noticed my vast amount of cds in racks on the wall and asked to burn some. I let him, but made it very clear that there would be no burning of Tool albums

LOL!

BTW, I thought you all might enjoy a pic of Maynard recording with Trent Reznor and a couple others at Nothing Studios, working on their project, Tapeworm.

I could probly make the money, if I pushed my morals to the limit and got a job, but the time thing is the biggest problem, church camps and stuff.

I feel your pain, one of the guys I hang about with was waiting on me getting my stuff together and looked in a big folder I have. Twas full of cds (I've given up on keeping them in their cases, keeps them scratch-freeish in a wallet folder) and he immediately asked to burn my radiohead collection (about 10 albums (a couple unofficial etc, and loads of singles). I was disgusted.

I just finally heard Tool, they are a very interesting sound, very different. Don't really like it, but that's my opinion.

Like all good art, it is an aquired taste.

lol true...they sound talented, but a more of catchy tunes guy...no wonder I love switchfoot. As for cussing and such in the lyrics, they're secular, I wouldn't expect anything else from them.

I liked them straight away, mind you the first song I heard was Schism, so that's understandable. Then Stinkfist, at which point i was hooked.

One song that doesn't get enough credit, in my opinion, is Triad. I mean, what a way to end the Lateralus album. It starts off with those sweet tribal drums and very mechanical guitar, then winds down with a guitar riff that is not unlike the throb of a heartbeat. I love it.

That's what I thought; "what a great way to end the album!" This song was also an amazing one in their live show when I saw them. Harnesses on ropes lowered the contortionists and they were hanging upside down, writhing and contorting as the song began to kick in. Once the heaviest part kicked in everything was going full throttle and the Salival man appeared on the two huge screens and began to rotate. The contortionists held their arms out in the posture of the man as Tool and some guest on even more tribal sounding drums continued ripping on "Triad” with Maynard entranced and doing his normal gyrating to the music. Oh dude it was so incredible.
