Tool formed in 1990 in Los Angeles, California. Known for their use of visual arts and long, complex releases, the band is generally described as a style-transcending act. Their first album “Undertow” had a heavy metal sound, and later became more dominant in alternative metal as with their album “Ænima” in 1996. They’ve also released “Lateralus” in 2001, and their most recent, “10,000 Days” in 2006.
While on tour for their release of “10,000 Days”, “Vicarious” was nominated for Best Hard Rock Performance, and “10,000 Days” won Best Recording Package at the 49th Grammy Awards. They just recently went on tour in the summer of 2009 in the US and a couple dates in Canada.
