Emerging in the early 1990s, Tool bridged the gap between classic heavy metal and alternative rock, mixing grinding guitars, dark thundering rhythms, and challenging lyrics. The band (singer Maynard James Keenan, drummer Danny Carey, guitarist and video director Adam Jones and bassist Justin Chancellor) never appeared in its own videos, which were typically intense and macabre, yet their brooding sound found a large mainstream following. The band has released just four full-length albums, including 1992's "Undertow," 1996's "Aenima," 2001's "Lateralus" and 2006's "10,000 Days."
