Could you imagine seeing them in such an intimate setting? Especially with how big they are now. Incredible.
Another great video. They are too good. Wonder what the next really special musical talents, like them, will be?

I love TOOL. They're probably my favorite band ever.
Here's some old school shit that often gets forgotten because it's not really their style anymore.... but they were good when they were heavier too.

There are just no music powerhouses like them right now....I know their music is put on hold for side pojects like Pussifier and his winery.....he Maynard has said before that the band is sort of evolved outside of whatever he is doing. Regardless if they make another album or not, every one of their albums are just incredible.
I just read on Wikipedia (from a quote in 2007) that the band has already written new material and that they will release another album after their hiatus... but obviously that was a while ago so shit might have changed. I don't know.
Also, I just want to say that their drummer is amazing. It's easy to not really notice with the overall awesomeness of their sound, but I've been going back and listening to their songs just for the drums... I think anyone that doesn't already agree with me will have a new found appreciation for the drumming if they do the same.
Yeah the percussion of TooL is what sold me.
Danny Carey is the GOAT.
Since the Lateralus tour on, Danny Carey takes center stage during concerts. It is awesome.
Shit gets awesome at 5:30
ILJO, you are JUST now realizing what an original and incredible artist Danny Carey is?! And TooL is your FAVORITE band?! He's definitely the top 10 of our generation, if not top 10 of all time IMO.
Chuck...that is fucking amazing.
I went to art school after graduating from high school and probably 90% of my art projects I did in college where created while Tool was blasting in the back ground.
Tool is easily in my top 5 favorite bands ever. I saw them live when they were touring for Lateralus and it was fucking insane. They had acrobats dressed like aliens doing some circ dis ole shit swinging from the rafters. I had the flu and felt like I was going to die and 2 minutes in to their set I forgot I was even sick.
Every member of Tool is an absolute fucking badass in their own right. Danny Carey is a fucking beast. The thing I love about him is he is constantly taking lessons from great drummers in different styles. He's not one of those guys who thinks they're too good for lessons, when in reality if any drummer falls in to that catagory it's him.
Maynards vocals/ lyrics are in a league of their own.
Adam Jones was one of my early inspirations on guitar and when I was learning how to play I made it a point to learn as many Tool songs as I could. I haven't played Stink Fist in years but if you handed me a guitar in drop D I could play that shit note for note right now.
Justin Chancellor is a bass genius. The way he would take over songs with the bass and Adam would just hold the rythm was definately ahead of it's time. Tool and especially Justins bass style are the reason why bands like Isis, Pelican and Intronaut have become so popular. (Chancellor has made guest performances on both Isis's Panopticon and Intronauts Valley of Smoke records. If you like Tool you need to check these bands out.)
There's a new movement thats been building up steam in the underground metal scene for years now called "intelligent metal". Tool will be remembered as the god fathers of this style.
No I didn't mean just now. I just meant that I was already a big fan for a while before I really realized it.
I was really into TOOL when I was a youngster and it was easy to focus on the guitar and lyrics and bass because that's kind of traditionally the front runners... so when I started paying close attention to the drums, it almost felt like I was listening to new songs... I was blown away...
But this was years ago... It changed the way I listened to their songs though... seems like the drums are the forefront now, in my mind anyway.
I don't know, that's probably just me though. I wasn't really musically mature (or mature in any other sense lol) when I started listening to them and I go through phases with genres/bands... so it felt like I had a mini epiphany when I got back around to TOOL one day and kind of heard it from a new perspective... it made me want to play the drums lol... and to this day I still plan to once I get my own house.
I can definitely see where your coming from in it adding a new dimension to listening to their music. Also about being musically "mature," which I feel is missing from most people. They are just such a bunch of very unique talents that mesh so well, and to be honest I didn't become a huge fan until around 2007 when I finally decided to just sit down and listen to their music. Before I had mainly just listened to the singles and liked them for what they were, but I had never gained a solid appreciation for what they represented musically like I do now.
I must have listened to AEnima (album) 20 times in a row.
Here's the Lateralus album arranged in the "Holy Gift" order using the fibonacci series and spirals and what not.

I'm sure some of you have heard about this already. I don't know if I believe it, but some tracks do seem to flow together pretty seamlessly. What say you?
here's a source if you want to read on the process someone used to make this new order. I've read a few and they're all basically the same. I don't know if this guy actually did it or just took credit from another person that did it.
Am I alone in thinking that Lateralus might just be the best song ever made, ever.
