TOOL SPEAKS ON…

├ćNIMA…

“…it’s all about change and evolution individually as well as universally. It’s also about unity…” -Maynard James Keenan

“…one of the goals of the record, among a lot of things, was to make it obvious to all the materialistic idiots that energy is primary and the illusion of matter is secondary…” -Danny Carey

“…it’s like an amusement park, where you can jump in on any ride or alternatively you can swallow the whole tab and be taken hostage. The treatment will be brutal and rigorous and the demands so great but you’ll walk away from it saying that were treated very well…” -Justin Chancellor

MESSAGE TO HARRY MANBACK

“…this song explores sound and emotion in an odd way. If you don’t know English or Italian, this song might sound very much like a passionate love poem, but in actuality it’s a message from a person that is very angry, very hurt and very bitter…” -Maynard James Keenan

NEGATIVE IONS

“…they are known to make people feel good, so that’s our feel good song for the record…”-Danny Carey

THIRD EYE

“…addresses the subject matter of the entire album. It’s the ultimate extended remix of ├ćnima…” -Justin Chancellor

SONGWRITING

“…we spent two years in the South of France at the Renne LeChateau writing the record. We recorded and mixed it on an 8-track in three days at Casablanca Recording Studios…” -Maynard James Keenan

TOOL…

“…I’m sorry. Could you repeat the question? I was thinking of something else…” -Maynard James Keenan

“…when we started the band we all had our own jobs. We did this as a side project, we never intended to get signed. It was all about the music, music that inspires and music that creates thought…” -Adam Jones

“…I’ve never come across or been part of a collection of souls so diverse in character and belief that possess the ability to mutually accomodate those differences and evolve them into positive creativity…” -Justin Chancellor

“…we’re one of the few bands who hasn’t had to play any lame fashion games, we’ve always been able to put art first…” -Danny Carey

JUSTIN CHANCELLOR

“..we accept him, one of us, gobba gobba, gobba gobba, one of us, one of us. He’s a cunt!…” -Danny Carey

“…We have a new bass player?…” -Maynard James Keenan

MISC…

“…I’ve been studying ritual magic lately and two of the key ingredients I’m missing are books by Osman Spare and a Scarlet Woman. Any help would be greatly appreciated…” -Danny Carey

“…I lost my copy of “The Joyful Guide to Lacrymology” in the Castaic Lake brush fire along with many of my personal belongings. If someone could mail me a copy of the book, Iwould treatly appreciate it…” -Maynard James Keenan
