Tool Appreciation Thread & New album news

A nice place for fans of one of the best bands around. If it has to do with Tool, it's fair game.

Also, feel free to post any new album news as it comes.

i liked them a lot in high school, but by the time i managed to see them live i really couldn't have cared less. it was a cool show, i guess. for a while i had talked myself into thinking it was an awesome show, but it was long enough ago that i don't care anymore. neat lighting, that was wicked cool. i honestly couldn't find maynard on the stage at all for the whole show (and i had pretty decent seats). i asked my friend afterwards where the hell he was, she said he was standing in the back on a spinning platform by the drums

messhugah opened..they sucked in a big way.

i still love "eulogy", and recognize them as a talented band, but i've lost interest. with a perfect circle (who i don't like at all), i kind of forgot they were still around.

I love Tool and APC, look my nickname
Maynard has a great voice, so beautiful and so agressive.

I saw APC this month last year and it was the second best show I've ever seen.

And yes, Ænima IS the shit.

My god, what an amazing live band they are! Even though Maynard is not your average 'frontman' they blow me away every time I see them! To me they are the best live band around if you purely look at the music!

And of course I love the albums as well. I think Lateralus was not as good as the previous ones, but it would still kick the ass of most of the bands out there...

great band - in my top 5 favorites. maynard could shit on a plate and i would probably buy one down at best buy. unfortunately news of the upcoming album is rare and vague. i hope they hurry the fuck up, it's been 4 (5?) years i think.

i saw APC open for NIN a while back and they really impressed me. then i saw them again after they became a 'superband' with james iha et al, and they were good, but not as good as the first time.

that being said, mer de noms is a fantastic CD

(and NIN rocked, by the way!)

i think you have to agree, my love, that thirteenth step is far superior to mer de noms as an ALBUM. on a track by track basis though, mer de noms has a few songs that the sophomore release can't touch.

I've seen Tool more times than I've seen U2. Needless to say, you can call me a fan from even before Undertow came out.

and as far as new album news, you're funny.

they are on the Trent Reznor, an album every 5 years or more plan.

Actually I might expect one Spring '06 at the earliest. If they were nearing a fall '05 release I would have heard something, I think.

But by all means, I hope they prove me wrong.
I love Undertow, Opiate and Aenima quite a bit, and Lateralus, I like but maybe to a lesser extent.

Maynard is kind of an interesting dude live. He played the Lateralus tour at the back of the stage, often times with his back to the crowd, even playing a 'keytar' here and there. But I saw them on the Aenima tour in a smaller venue and it was probably the best show I've ever seen by anyone. At least it's up there in the top 2 or 3 with a couple of U2 shows.

By new album news I meant put it in here as it comes. I know no news has been released yet, but when it is, this is the place to put it.

I'm fully aware there is no news and am quite distraught as a result.

Digging this back up for some good news

After months of pre-production, Tool finally have begun recording their long-awaited follow-up to 2001's "Lateralus"
