    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.

    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.

    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.

    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)

    define 'poser' in the sense that you repeatedly use it.

    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.

    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.

    Tool is one of very few "newer" bands that I have respect for. No shortage of talent and originality here...

    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".

    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.

    I confused by this statement. Earlier in the thread you stated Korn is the biggest poser band ever, but in this last statement you say poser bands are bands that ripped off of Korn.

    I'm sure they care being they are millionaires...hell, if I were in the music business I'd probably "sell out" too as you put it if it made me considerable more money rather than staying out of the mainstream and possibly fail. JMO though.

    I really wouldn't call a bunch of noise along with some screaming and grunting music IMO. That's me though. Personally, I like these so called poser bands who put the emphasis on having a good lyrisist along with sound intstrement play. Yes, I like some of the heavier stuff, but it is those bands you would call posers. Who gives a ****. You don't like it, kiss my ass.

    not saying I disagree, but everyone has a right to their own opinion, and IMO, dont think they should be critisized for what they choose to listen to. I just dont feel like I have to "defend" my music over someone elses choice. But to each their own.

    Ahh gotchya. I do agree that their 1st album was their best, but I felt follow the leader was good in it's on way. Their newer stuff is complete garbage IMO. Reminds me of another kick ass metal band that lost their stuff.
