Tool

Unquestionably a leader in hard music, Tool's unique brand of dark, artful, alternative rock/metal has served as a major influence for any number of bands in the hard-alternative spectrum, as well as several nu-metal bands. An appearance on an early Lollapalooza tour, coupled with massive play of their inventive videos, helped catapulted Undertow and the band to stardom, and with each succeeding album they have continued to push the boundaries of alternative metal.

Trivia note: my brother went to art school with the director of the "Sober" video, and in fact was one of the major contributors of that video.

Recent album: Fear Inoculum, released on August 30, 2019.
