Tool is an American progressive rock/metal band, formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California. The band members are Maynard James Keenan (vocals), Adam Jones (guitar), Justin Chancellor (bass) and Danny Carey (drums).
They have gained appreciation and critical praise for a complex and ever-evolving sound, that ranges from "slam and bang" heavy metal on their first release (Opiate, 1992) to more progressive influenced songwriting on Lateralus (2001)
- Matt Belamy declared in an interview for the Kerrang magazine that he loves Tool's album "Lateralus".
