Formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California, Tool is an American rock band. It consists of drummer Danny Carey, bassist Justin Chancellor, guitarist Adam Jones, and singer Maynard James Keenan. Tool music emerged with a ?slam and bang? heavy metal sound and were later seen at the top of the alternative metal movement, when they released their second studio album ?nima in 1996.
This is more progressive influenced songwriting on Lateralus (2001) and their latest release 10,000 Days (2006). 10,000 Days had many controversies surrounding it mainly for its name. After rumored titles such as Teleincision had been dismissed, 10,000 Days was announced as the new name.
Tool has gained appreciation and critical praise for a complex and ever-evolving sound. Now their sound has evolved so much so that in another era, it would have been considered progressive rock. It has been subjected to many favorable comparisons like it has been called ?grinding, post-Jane's Addiction heavy metal?, compared to ?Led Zeppelin's heaving, battering guitar riffs and Middle Eastern modes?, explained as a ?blend of vintage Jane's Addiction and King Crimson? or (as the Lateralus three-piece ?Disposition?, ?Reflection? and ?Triad? were described) Pink Floyd's Meddle (1971), but thirty years later and altered by ?Tool's impulse to cram every inch of infinity with hard guitar meat and absolute dread?. But it is difficult to put this band in a slot with its exceptionally long complex releases, controversial yet abstract lyrics, unorthodox music videos, the subsequent disputes and censorship and the resulting ongoing struggle for privacy.
Their songs contain complex, changing rhythms and time signatures. The rhythms used in songs like ?Schism? is 5/8 to 7/8, or in 6.5/8 according to Justin Chancellor and ?Lateralus? is 9/8 to 8/8 to 7/8. Danny Carey?s poly-rhythms are well-known. Tool band also uses dissonance and other forms of instrumental experimentation like the incorporation of a ?pipe bomb microphone? (a guitar pickup mounted inside a brass cylinder), a talk box guitar solo (?Jambi?), Justin Chancellors use of modulation and delay effects, Danny Carey's tabla and electro drum sections, among others.
In all, terms as ?art rock? or ?experimental music? as used to define the band?s music. The String Quartet Tribute has created several Tool tribute albums, the first of which is ?Third Eye Open?. The songs are arranged for classical music string instruments (violins, viola, cello and a double bass) with at least three musicians. They are mostly multi-sectioned, and the band's sophisticated grasp of harmony allows for an interesting instrumental interpretation.
The String Tribute to Tool Volume 2 (2003) is performed by two groups of musicians, including the group from Third Eye Open. ?Finding Beauty in the Dissonance: A Piano Tribute to Tool?, ?Chamber Made: The Baroque Tribute to Tool?, ?Anotomica: The String Quartet Tribute to Tool? and ?The String Quartet Tribute to Tool's ?nima? are other String Quartet Tribute titles. Other tributes include the titles such as ?A Gothic Acoustic Tribute to Tool?, Tribute to Tool played by various rock artists, and ?Rockabye Baby: Lullaby Renditions of Tool?. Tool band also appeared on the cover of the June 2006 issue of Revolver.
