The music of TOOL is for those seeking to experience music on another level. The track “Forty Six and 2,” from TOOL’s critically acclaimed AEnima, is a musical masterpiece. Lyrically, the song is about the desire to shed our skin and evolve to the next level of our existence. The underlying music utilizes Middle Eastern-inspired bass lines, pumping and swelling electric guitars, and tribal and explosive rock percussion that together take the listener on a journey from the introspective to the cathartic. This is the inspiration behind San Diego-based Forty Six & TOOL. The members of Forty Six & TOOL are the ultimate TOOL fans, with over 25 years’ experience playing and performing their music. Obsessive and detail-oriented while always seeking flow state and connectivity with the audience, Forty Six & TOOL are on a mission to faithfully recreate the power, complexity, and raw emotion that has come to define the TOOL sound for millions worldwide.
While songs like “Sober,” and “Stinkfist” are instantly recognizable by most 90’s rock music lovers, Forty Six & TOOL goes deeper and includes the more experiential, complex, and harder hitting offerings. From the polyrhythms of “Rosetta Stoned” to the soaring, orchestral guitar of the grammy award winning “7empest,” Forty Six & TOOL create the ultimate TOOL experience by regularly performing in front of full capacity crowds at major venues in Southern California.
