To Tool

Alexander S. Peak

23 January 2008

The music of Tool is the dark slime of a warm, black night.

Tool is an escape, a subtle revolution of sound and perception.

The musical landscape this band crafts combines the darkest elements of psychedelic rock, the most melodic elements of gothic rock, and the most ethereal elements of metal.

It is the fulfilment of life, surreally black and purely haunting.

It is the other side, prophesied by The Doors, strived for by Bauhaus, and feared by Metallica.  It is both perfection and the contempt of perfection.  It breathes.

The music of Tool has no face.

Tool paints an un-escapable dream.  Tool sears its force into the soul of its victims.

I want to be forever lost.
