Tool's greatest breakthrough was to introduce dark, vaguely underground metal to the preening pretentiousness of art rock. Or maybe it was introducing the self-absorbed pretension of art rock to the wearing grind of post-thrash metal -- the order really doesn't matter. Though Metallica wrote their multi-sectioned, layered songs as if they were composers, they kept their musical attack ferociously at street level. Tool didn't. They embraced the artsy, faux-bohemian preoccupations of Jane's Addiction while they simultaneously paid musical homage to the dark, relentlessly bleak visions of grindcore, death metal, and thrash. Even with their post-punk influences, they executed their music with the ponderous, anti-song aesthetic of prog rock, alternating between long, detailed instrumental interludes and tuneless, pseudo-meaningful lyrical rants in their songs. Tool, however, had a knack for conveying the strangled, oppressive angst that the alternative nation of the early '90s claimed as its own. So, the band was able to slip into the definition of alternative rock during the post-Nirvana era, landing a slot on the third Lollapalooza tour in 1993, which helped their first full-length debut album, Undertow, rocket into platinum status. By the time the band delivered their belated follow-up, Huh??nima, in 1996, alternative rock had lost its grip on the mainstream of America, and their audience had shaped up as essentially metal-oriented, which meant that the group and the record didn't capture as big an audience as their first album, despite debuting at number two on the charts. After a co-headlining slot with Korn on Lollapalooza '97 wrapped up, Tool remained on the road, supporting Huh??nima until well into the next year. During their usual extended hiatus between albums, Maynard James Keenan decided to use his downtime productively by forming a side project, dubbed A Perfect Circle. The band's 2000 debut, Mer de Noms, was a surprise hit, while their ensuing tour was a sold-out success as well. With Tool breakup rumors swirling, the band put the speculation to rest by re-entering the recording studio and issuing the stopgap B-sides/DVD set Salival late the same year. May 2001 finally saw the release of Tool's third full-length release, Lateralus, which debuted at the number one position on the Billboard album chart and became the band's biggest hit. After the obligatory several-year sabbatical to pursue other projects, the group returned with another chart-topper, 10,000 Days, in 2006.
8  Forum / Band Biographies / Type O Negative on: June 07, 2007, 10:23:22 pm
Couldn't give a FULL Type O bio since they've been around forever, but here is an overview::::::

Type O Negative began their career with the 1991 Roadrunner release Slow, Deep and Hard, followed by the luridly titled Origin of the Feces (complete with the appropiately scatological and controversial cover) in 1992. Both records showcase the lush "orchestral metal" musicality and fascinating, hard-to-peg inner workings of singer/bassist Peter Steele's mind, not to mention the his oft-misconstructed political leanings and views about the "fairer sex." Ultimately, though, Steele feels it was Bloody Kisses where the band truly came into it's own, melding the melody, lyrics and heaviness found in songs like "Blood & Fire" into a uniquely signature sound that has inspired fanatical fans ranging from white-skinned vampire wannabees to prog-rock metal bands not to mention raves from hard-to-impress critics at Alternative Press, Rolling Stone and Billboard.
But that was just the beginning for Type O Negative...

Type O Negative took a provocative approach on October Rust, the highly anticipated follow-up to their gold-certified third album Bloody Kisses, which spawned the hits "Black No. 1" and "Christian Woman" and earned the quartet slots on tours ranging from NIN to Queensryche. "We really came into our own with our last album; we found our style" explains Steele. Not that we set any limitations on the new album, we simply feel this is the logical continuation from Bloody Kisses, unlike Slow, Deep and Hard to Bloody Kisses which was really, really different.

October Rust, produced by Steele and keyboardist Josh Silver, was recorded in early 1996 at Systems Two Studios, with Mike Marciano engineering. October Rust marks drummer John Kelly's recording debut with the band although he joined in 1993, just after the release of Bloody Kisses. Type O Negative's diverse yet compatible personalities make the Brooklyn boys as compelling and entertaining on stage as off. Guitarist Kenny Hickey, a founding member of TON, has an aggressive playing style and almost intimidating personality that perfectly suits the band's varied textures and appeal. Josh Silver, his hair flying as he pounds the keyboards onstage, is quite a different character offstage: A self-proclaimed "paranoid schizophrenic hermit."

Unlike many bands, Type O Negative write prolifically on the road, and lyricist/songwriter Steele penned nearly 80 percent of the material on a Yamaha keyboard in the back of the tour bus. The musical goal was "sonic saturation-as much sonic information as possible," and with the 12 songs on October Rust, intoned in Steele's sensual, resonant voice and realized via the band's tight unique, heavy, and wild musicality, they succeeded. While Bloody Kisses proved to be the breakthrough album for Type O Negative, October Rust will be a follow-through... Steele & Co. are never ones to leave an audience unsatisfied. As for any concerns about topping their last effort, Type O Negative feel no pressure and are fully confident in the textural sounds and memorable moments captured on their third full LP. Earthy, tactile and infused with Pagan influences, fire imagery and salamious sensuality, October Rust is candy for a diabetic world.

Since their formation in 1994, New Haven, CT's Hatebreed have grown into one of the most sought after hardcore bands in the United States. Their perfect combination of brutal metallic riffs, gutwrenching vocals and classic mosh parts have catapulted them to the forefront of the hardcore genre.

Hatebreed came into existence based on the simple idea that there weren't any really heavy, brutal bands out there that had gained the respect of the hardcore scene. And in seeking to change that, these guys have fundamentally changed the face of hardcore music. They play bone-crushing riffs followed immediately by in-your-face dance parts that get the crowd going live, and will have you slamming into the walls of your living room at home.

These guys are also unabashed about their love for metal, and it shows. With influences ranging from Venom and Celtic Frost to Madball, Integrity and Biohazard, Hatebreed have positioned themselves at the perfect hardcore metal crossroads. Definitely a hardcore band with short songs and dance parts, these guys have taken the best of the Old School, and whipped it into a frenzied barrage of Slayer-esque riffs and even some double bass thrown in for flavor. Not to be confused with a metal band, Jamey and the guys have been a grass roots center of the CT hardcore scene for well over five years.

While not interested in politics, Hatebreed have gained the attention of a lot of people with the song "Kill and Addict" off of their last demo EP, Under The Knife (Victory Distribution's best-selling demo title). This particular track is a personal, not political statement regarding people who have given up any hope of being clean. And that trend of personal lyrical statements continues on Satisfaction is the Death of Desire. "Last Breath" is a tribute to three people that the band was friends with that have died this year, including Raybeez from Warzone. "Betrayed by Life" is about a friend tragically dying from AIDS. And "Empty Promises" is about people who try to change your life for the better, but their intentions are really to better themselves and boost their ego.

With a consistent touring schedule, Hatebreed are on their way to you in the next few months. They just completed a full U.S. tour with Despair (their third national tour), and will be playing several shows with Agnostic Front and Cause For Alarm before year's end. In the past, they have played with bands ranging from Machine Head, Life of Agony and Napalm Death to H2O, AFI, and even Dog Eat Dog, just to name a few.

The future looks bright for the band. Their strong work ethic and desire to ring their message of aggression-packed new school hardcore to all kinds of audiences guarantees them a spot as THE band to watch. They are the antithesis of emo...They are brutally aggressive, tribal, urban hardcore that wants nothing more than to get in your face and get you in the pit.

Hatebreed is:
Jamey Jasta . Vocals
Lou "Boulder" Richards . Guitar
Chris Beattie . Bass

11  Forum / Band Biographies / Mushroomhead on: June 07, 2007, 10:13:55 pm
Known for its theatrical live show and the black masks that most of its members wear on stage, Mushroomhead is one of the more unique and adventurous alternative metal outfits that emerged in the 1990s. And the Cleveland band's music is as interesting as its image; Mushroomhead's forceful yet melodic alterna-metal incorporates elements of hip-hop, punk, and goth rock as well as industrial and techno. The members of Mushroomhead have been performing incognito since 1993, when drummer Skinny founded the band. At first, Mushroomhead was only meant to be a side project. Its members were playing in various local bands at the time, and they wore the blacks masks (which look like a cross between S&M/bondage masks and World War I gas masks) so that people wouldn't recognize them. The only Mushroomhead member who doesn't wear a black mask opts for Kiss-like clown makeup instead. After a few years, Mushroomhead became one of Cleveland's top local attractions -- and its members kept wearing the masks when they saw how intriguing people found them to be. Mushroomhead's self-titled debut album was released independently in 1995, followed by Superbuick in 1996 and M3 in 1999. The Midwesterners signed with Eclipse in 2000, and their next album, XX, came out the following year. In 2001, Mushroomhead's members included drummer/founder Skinny, lead vocalists J. Mann and Jeffrey Nothing, guitarists Bronson and Gravy, keyboardist Shmotz, bassist Pig Benis, and sample provider Stitch when they signed to Universal Records to rerelease XX.
12  Forum / Band Interviews / Mushroomhead on: June 07, 2007, 10:11:32 pm
Chad Bowar: How is Waylon fitting in to the band?
Jeffrey Nothing: Recording-wise he fit in very well, and live is very good too, and the frontman aspect is definitely more dynamic and unpredictible. I think it will come around even more now that he's singing more songs that he actually wrote and can call his own more. But the best part is the new possibilities we now have with a more diverse vocal library to choose from.

What does his presence add?
Harmony possibilities and a chance for us to make it unclear who's singing. With J and I it was a lot easier to pick who was doing what, when. I believe we've only scratched the surface really with Waylon and this band. The music is so challenging now.

Did guitarist Bronson recently leave the band?
His parents offered to pay for him to return to school. We as a band do this and it's enough, but some guys need to leave and pursue other dreams and that's fine. To each their own.

Have you replaced him or are you playing with one guitarist?
We are just going with Gravy at this point, and that's plenty. He wrote and performed most of XIII and all of Savior Sorrow so it just seems natural. Why add to something that doesn't need it?

Why did you part ways with Universal after selling almost a half million copies of your last CD?
They had decided as the song "Crazy" was being picked to break us huge and impacting at radio. We decided we weren't in their future plans. That's fine but it might have been premature. It's ok though, you can get lost in the shuffle at a major whose interests lie more with rap and the million sellers already there. The future is with independents. Majors are difficult these days.

How did you decide to sign with Megaforce?
We were being looked at by several labels and the other ones wanted to do it with strict guidelines and the thought of building the band when we feel we are on the edge of something bigger, not infants in this process. Megaforce are visionaries and came out and saw us, and they put the time in and worked with us to make the deal make sense and that mattered a lot. Seeing the vision means a lot more then being told what it is.

What have been your high and low points (professionally) since you've been in Mushroomhead?
The fans love of what we do and the way the music has touched so many lives, that's what you hope for most if you love what you do. I would say the "Slipknot thing" is a serious low point seeing yourself pass you by and become huge is hard to take. They can deny it in public all they want. They admitted to our faces in our own home town bar. But, life goes on.

What has the response been so far to Savior Sorrow?
It's about 95% favorable. Some fans who think that we are just a metal band are the fans that move on. We are an entity that evolves. Just look at Savior Sorrow; it's intense but crosses many genres and the lyrics are the most intense we have ever done. It is a true reflection of the state of America and the world. We are in a crazy time and this album reflects that very much. This album is very profound and brutally on target. Speak from the heart not because you wanna look like a good little tool. I think the truth will make those people sad in the long run. We are one of the few bands making intelligent metal and heavy rock. I urge everyone to listen to more challenging rock and metal.

How has the band's sound evolved since XIII?
We went back to our drawing boards and did what we feel best. The songs in some ways wrote themselves. Gone are the days of too many cooks. The process was never broke. If anything trying to take control spelled doom and here we are arisen. Our sound is back to being truly our sound, from the heart and sincere and I believe our best ever... These songs breathe and you hear the slightest little sound at times coming from ones instrument and then the crash of the full band. This isn't survival of the fittest every second, and I think that's what separates us from the silly noise of some of our contemporaries.
