about tool
    #4083260 - 04/22/05 12:42 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

As soon as I started to appreciate tool, they kept growing more and more on me and after 2 years I haven't lost any intrest in them one bit.  Once I actually listened to them their music started to hit me and really make me feel(even making my body numb and vibrate sometimes,, never got that from any other music before)

I don't know what it is about them but to me their music and lyrics come together to mesh the most emetional muci i've ever heard.  I mean they have many songs, that all hit me on a different level.  I find myself getting caught up and  almost in the momenbt of feeling them right inside me sometimes..
They have songs on the darker side and lighter side that both make me cry with different feelings, i can't believe it sometimes.

some might say im one of those wacko tool fans whos found the secret tool decoder ring :wink:  but they really mean somethign too me

I was just wondering for those of you who feel similar what it is about emn that gets to you?

hey man i feel the same way with tool. one day a friend of mine put on lateralus and i fell in love with them. since then they are one of my absolute favorite bands. i can relate to the music and i feel i understand it and they understand me. all the music seems to be based around my personal philosophy and i think its beautiful. the music definitely brings me to another level.

i think its a movement more of a band and a phylosophy more than music... tool is something bigger than a band. did you hear the bassist is working on hypnosis tecniques with bass rythms for the next album? i cant wait...

They do seem to give off a feeling of somethign extra-ordinary, probably because of how i can connect with them, but i think one of the reasons i connect with them like i do is because of "whatever" it is about them opens somethign else up in me???

i can go on forever about tool. i was recently at alex greys art gallery in manhattan and i discussed tool with him for a little bit. he mentioned how he worked closely with them on the new dvd and how the album and dvd should be comming out very soon. if you check out the tool website you will see there is a new splash screen with some flash animation and a sneak peak at some beautiful new art.

Re: about tool [Re: chemistry]
    #4083335 - 04/22/05 01:04 AM (11 years, 7 months ago)

i found this on the tool website wwwtoolband.com about the bassist

Justin began his celebration of life in England where as a child you could often find him playing soccer with his siblings and friends. Sometimes Justin would catch himself mesmerized by the dancing and spinning of the ball sensing the possibilities of worlds within worlds. At the age of eight he began playing guitar and at fourteen started meeting and playing with the friends he would eventually form the band Peach with. Peach released the album"Giving Birth to a Stone" and later appeared as an opening band for Tool on several dates in England. Carrying with him a strange sense of alternate realities, Justin found himself able to access them through music and altered states of consciousness . When Tool needed a bass player in 1995 the journey to America seemed simple compared to the paths he had explored within his own mind. Currently Justin has been practicing entering hypnagogic states facilitated by sonic landscapes and a highly specialized form of tensor yoga. These function as the arc and threads that buoy and retrieve him from the watery matrices and emotional labyrinths he explores. He then utilizes these experiences as a reference point in his riffs and style to induce a holographic depth to Tool's music. Keep your eyes open for the scheduled re-release for Peach's "Giving Birth to a Stone" happening sometime soon.

At least on a personal level thats true with myself. Have some good conversations with Alex Grey(also my favorite artist, though I ahven't been exposed to much there no question the guys work can be describbed fully with the rods in any language;)

btrw I didn't know they had a dvd commin out. any release dates?

oh and chemistry your face is pretty visable in that picture, before you clik on it i mean, just thoguht id let you know.

yea i could definetly say more on a personal level, because it is only my opinion and i haven't heard everything but i've been a music lover for a long time and i still am but tool totally stands out. it is like a religion to me almost. i can really feel and understand the music more then any other music. as far as the dvd there is no date, i think alex mentioned they were having record company problems again but the dvd will eventually come out because he said its long done and comming out soon. alex is also my favorite artist because i think his art and tools art compliment each other very well. like i said if you go to the tool website and see the new splash screen they put up for the front page i'm sure that means they are getting ready with a new webpage for the release of the new album. i stumbled across that article on accident and i think its one of the best readings i have ever found on tool that will give you more insight to the band and its philosophy. i searched maynard interview on google i think and it was the first thing that came up. and its funny because several months ago i was searching around for info about maynard and found nothing.

I was exadgerating a bit in my tone I guess, I can definatly wait and it doesn't bother me as long as I get to hear new material in the near future. But what i'm really stoked for is to see them live!!!!

The secret to being funny is to say smart things stupidly, or is it stupid things smartly? Whatever..it's not rocket surgery...or something like that.

tool just sounds like some nu-deep-metal and is just another band
also, its a fucking depressing band to listen to
and an angry/negative one as well
get over it
also, that university professor must be a desperate shit to be interviewing them and not knowing any better

Don't tell me they are angry and negative just because you can't see the positive in them. And many of their songs come off as angry because not everythign in this existance is happy and full of joy, some of their songs come off that way because thats the feeling off the song. Look at Aenima, that song wouldn'';t be the same if it were sung another way. How could you sing a happy sounding soung about how what we (western civilization mainly) have become, he's fucking pissed about all the bullshit that surrounds him. Theres no reason for him to be happy, unless he was lieing to himself so people who wanted happy music would buy his shit.

Why don't you listen to Lateralus. And really listen to The Patient(might sound sad, but PAY ATTENTION to the lyrics), Parabol, Parabola, Lateralus, and Reflection. I'd give you some other songs too, but I think I'd be wasting my time. Thats because you have this image of tool being angry and negative, when really alot of their work is very positive, but not at first glance. They give me hope for change and better days, even in thier most angy songs, how is that not positive???

Anyone who just hears their music will see them as angry and negative, but once you actually LISTEN they can be so much more. For me at least.

Open your ears, your mind, and your heart next time you listen to them. You might actually find music that has meaning to you!


btw of all the bands you listen to what do they mean to you, what do you get out of their music???
