    I don't think edginess determines musical genre. Of course their music doesn't count as death metal. They have all the important characteristics of metal. They're just more progressive than most metal bands.

    Here's a totally unfounded and controversial theory: metal has roots in Germanic culture and rap in African culture. So metal represents the whitest of the white people and rap represents black people. So perhaps white people who don't resonate with African culture at all like metal and not rap, and black people who don't resonate with Germanic culture don't like metal.

    Now feel free to totally disprove this.
    I don't think there's anything to prove or disprove, because all music is connected. You are influenced by what's around you, whether directly or indirectly, and whether you like it or not.

    Tool is one of my all time favorite bands ......I wouldn't ever call them metal their sound is just too varied and original for that. Plus there no metal band in history that even comes close to Danny's unreal drumming.

    Agreed that they're way better than most metal bands, and especially agree with your statement about Danny Carey. Still doesn't make them "not metal," though. There's certainly no other, more appropriate musical classification, that I can think of.

    This is music.


    Mightier than the tread of marching armies is the power of an idea whose time has come

    Metal is derived from a 70's and 80's style that resemble bands like black sabbath, motorhead and metallica. Tool has an alternative sound similar to newer forms of "D-tuned" rock such as alice and chains, peach and helmet. All those bands came out in the early 90's with "D-tuned" guitars little soloing and heavy low key rhythm. So technically they should be in a genre called Alternative rock or Alternative Metal. It's fairly outside the box of "metal" as it is genuinely it's own style.
