Tool 2021

Maynard James Keenan, Adam Jones, Danny Carey, and Justin Chancellor are the members who make up the heavy metal band Tool. In 1989, Keenan and Jones were introduced by a mutual friend and started a band. They wanted to add a drummer and bass player to the group, finding Carey after Jones’ high school friend Tom Morello made an introduction. Another friend of Jones’ also connected them with bassist Paul D’Amour, who stayed with the band from 1990 until 1995 when Chancellor took his place.Read More ...

    What’s Special?

    What sets Tool apart from other bands is the common theme of atypical time signatures in their songs. In “Schism,” there is a “six” and “six-and-a-half” time signature that transitions into shifting rhythms. Carey uses polyrhythms and electronic drum pads to generate octoban sounds and the band also uses experimental techniques like the use of a pipe bomb microphone and a talk box guitar solo, which can be heard on the song “Jambi.”

    Tool also takes a detour from traditional merchandising practices by not releasing song lyrics with their albums, as a way to put an emphasis on the sound of the songs. They also focus on visual elements used for their album artwork and performances. Jones is the band’s art director and has contributed to the artwork on their albums. He created packaging for the 10,000 Days album that features a pair of stereoscopic lenses used to view 3D artwork. The band won a Grammy Award for Best Recording Package as a result of Jones’ masterpiece. Jones also showcases his own artistic talents; the ribcage sculpture on the Undertow cover was created by Jones.

    The Tool Experience

    When it comes to live shows, Tool’s stage set is anything but ordinary. The band uses backlighting and large screen backdrops, which is what Keenan often faces instead of the audience. Keenan and Carey usually stand on elevated platforms in the back, while Jones and Chancellor stand in the front near the sides of the stage.
