They may look cool, but they can't be used for overseas travel due to the sheer weight of the shells. According to TheOtherWiki, the bass drums themselves weigh ''93 pounds''!

** ''Ænima'' is an allusion to Jungian psychology (the "anima" archetype, or the feminine unconscious). The song "Æn'''e'''ma" is a pun on this, referring to the medical procedure, which is what the singer wishes would happen to L.A. (getting irrigated with water and flushing out all the crap).

* UncommonTime: Many of their songs, namely "Schism," which [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schism_%28song%29#Time_signature has up to 47 meter changes]]. Starting around ''Ænima'', it's very rare for a Tool song not to contain at least one instance of this trope (and even before then, they used it a lot). See the trope page for a list of other songs that use it (though not an exhaustive one).

* LoudnessWar: Most of their work averts it, but ''Salival'' and ''10,000 Days'' are borderline cases, as are a few tracks on ''Ænima'' (although the album as a whole still has dynamics). Unusually for this trope, ''Lateralus'', released in between ''Salival'' and ''10,000 Days'', is barely affected and is actually quiet for the time it was released (2001).

* UncommonTime: Many of their songs, namely "Schism," which [[https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schism_%28song%29#Time_signature has up to 47 meter changes.]] Starting around ''Ænima'', it's very rare for a Tool song not to contain at least one instance of this trope (and even before then, they used it a lot). See the trope page for a list of other songs that use it (thought not an exhaustive one).
