Unleashed: The Story Of Tool (Softcover)


Publisher: Omnibus Press
Artist: Tool
Author: Joel McIver
Format: Books | Biography
The very first book about the Anglo-American metal band Tool explores not only their uncompromising music but also their unsettling, self-made image based on mythological symbols and arcane theories.

The quartet of master musicians - Maynard James Keenan, Danny Carey, Justin Chancellor and Adam Jones - emerged from the club scene in Los Angeles in 1990 alongside their friends Rage Against the Machine, grabbing the concept of heavy music and then completely redefining it.

With a sixties-style commitment to art and agit-prop, they have now attained a level of artistic complexity and depth which makes their enduring success a miracle in today's culture of bland, corporate entertainment. Author Joel McIver leaves no detail omitted as he delves into the mystery behind Tool's music.

    Joel McIver writes very well, and you certainly gain a lot of insight into the attitude of Tool and their history in "Unleashed", as well as an interesting story to boot. Definitely a must-have for fans of the band and their music.

    Justin Chancellor was not in Tool in 1990. Not a great start!
