Music: The Next Generation

I like listening to metal. And rock. Mostly rock. But melodic metal is awesome. And I’m a fan of almost anything Maynard James Keenan (who should have played Voldemort) is part of. Naturally, this includes Tool.

The evolution of MJK. Also, WTF. Taken from his Wikipedia page.

The fact is, I like Tool because of the really heavy rhythm section. The combo of the bass and drums makes me want to break things. Specifically, the strings of my bass. I’d give a lot of things to be able to play something like Parabola (from Lateralus) live, just for the coolness of it all.

That, and because kids these days probably wouldn’t be able to get what it was all about.

But maybe I’m wrong. Andrew O’Keefe certainly proved that I could possibly have things ass backwards with his school of insanely gifted kids. I’ll end my post here, and leave you guys with the video since—despite having seen this same vid around ten times in the span of two months—I am still terribly impressed.
