MJK leaves Tool?
Rumors have started up again about Maynard leaving Tool. Supposedly he has "found God" and is putting music on the backburner. This isn't the first time rumors have started after the bands last release was so long ago.
But this time, reports say Kurt Loder (MTV host/reporter) confirmed the rumor in an email conversation with Maynard. Anyone have any more info to add, or hopefully dispell the rumors?

i like tool, but manyarnd can be kinda ***, he is sooo dramatic. I am not suprised he "found god" what a homo rock star. He is a hypocrite too, making fun of people who use drugs and then using acid and other mind expanding drugs himself.

I bring it up because it just seems fishy when you consider Head leaving Korn under the same circumstances.

you must take anything ever said by any member of tool with a grain of salt. they make **** up all the time. esp mjk.
the new album is (supposedly) well underway.

It's a joke. Maynard said it around April fools day. I googled it a while back and he was kidding around.

I was gonna say because Maynard's been anti-God for a while now. Hell, the hidden track at the end of Opium was like a couple minutes of him talking about drugs and saying 'Saaatan, Saaatan...' A Perfect Circle's cool though.Originally Posted by Jblake

The April fools joke makes more sense than anything. Like I said, just brought it up to get more info.
Never said I liked Korn, just comparing the two. Though the poser comment...some would say the same about In Flames post Reroute to Remain, Killswitch and Shadows Fall. Personal preference though, I'm not judging. Considering I think I listed them in the New Workout CD thread.

no way!!!!!!!!! In flames is one of the best metal bands ever. I admitt the new cd sucks for the most part...ok how about these.....
as I lay dying
disturbed (just kidding)

sorry guys, but I am gonna have to diagree on static-x, their total posers. Fear Factory, however imo is a mixture of poser (nu) and real metal. I have every one of their cds. If you like ff try the band mnemic, their kinda poser to imo, but much better than something like slipknot (king of all poser band)

You guys should try out Children of Bodom, I think Follow the Reaper is there best CD. I also like Superjoint Ritual, dying Fetus, Opeth, Sepultura.

Yes define poser, in the sense that I know of it, you yourself would be a poser pretending to know it all on metal calling other bands posers when you don't have a successful band yourself.Originally Posted by UNDERTAKER

The term "poser" is being tossed around a bit much in my opinion, as it is being used under your own opinion. I didn't say any of the ones you posted Undertaker were bad, I'm just saying personal opinion can show just about whatever. Its like trying to compare american metal to euro-metal, they may fall in the same genre, but peoples taste for either will vary greatly.
Didn't mean to start a nu-metal bash fest.

maynard is anti-christian, though i wouldn't say ant-god. as he said in an interview "when i said **** your god, i didn't mean the God, just your god".Originally Posted by TheCrownedOne

I agree....being poser is an opinion, its really hard to explain what makes a band a poser band. poser metal and real metal/metalcore come from different backrounds and have different emphases. A big difference is poser metal bands are mostly bands that ripped off of korn, where as real metal bands began with iron maiden and cannibal corpse, or from hardcore bands like agnostic front and madball. Poser (nu) metal is waterdowned real metal with crappy riffs and singers who dont scream alot cuz there scared of not getting radio play. There emphasis is on show (ie dressing up in costumes etc) and less on the music.
