I’m such a tool…

fan.

Arguably one of the most artistic bands in the hard music scene today (if not ever), Revolver Magazine has just put out a special Tool only issue… it’s on newstands as of yesterday (and also online).

TOOL is like the darker kin to prog/artrockers King Crimson. Maynard James Keenan‘s vocals can both sooth and split. Adam Jones‘ guitars bring a lot to the table, as does his artistic direction (and sculpture background) on their many creepy, yet tenaciously detailed, video imagery. Danny Carey (drums) and Justin Chancellor (bass) know how to build an inspiring rhythm (one of my favorite tracks “Reflection” from Lateralus is a great example of their handiwork).

Plus, their artistic collaboration with COSM‘s Alex Grey is cool in its own right (I have a print of “Net of Being” pictured below). It’s radly displayed in our massage room here at home.

Anyway, I like the band. The new Revolver Magazine is spiffy. If you like Tool, go out and grab a copy…

Oh, I almost forgot… be sure to check out Tool‘s awe-inspiring collaboration with the Dalai Lama.

oh snap,
