Tool vocalist Maynard James Keenan offers up something to fill the collective void of fans eagerly awaiting a follow up to AENIMA. Keenan teamed with Tool guitar tech and A Perfect Circle guitarist/composer Billy Howerdel for MER DE NOMS, which is both a band effort and an engaging hard rock album, recorded while Tool renegotiated with their label and other band members took a break. But don't be fooled; A Perfect Circle is more than a one-off side project. The band isn't nearly as brutal as Tool; the musical textures are instead spacious and melodic. Keenan maintains his brooding, emotionally charged vocal style and his knack for conjuring bleak imagery. The track most comparable to Tool's music, "Rose," utilizes rise-and-fall dynamics and unpredictably breaks away to gentle strings, while "Judith" (the album's title is French for "sea of names," hence the song titles), explores free thought and warns against blind faith, and "Orestes" departs from the predominant guitar distortion with moody, powerful results.

    • Mer De Noms

      Mer De Noms (Sea of Names) is one of the most all together incredible albums I have ever had the honor of hearing. Keenan's voice is haunting, passionate, powerful and has incredible range. The bands combination of talent brings passionate, mind blowing, hearfelt music crashing into your ears drums. The album tracks range from violent anger, deep seeded pain, unbridled passion and all heart. Lyrically its obvious Keenan is on his game as always, his words never fail to paint a dramatic beautiful picture. Tracks such as "judith" are full of anger and a hint of confusion, while tracks like "brena" show Keenan's softer, more loving side and their 6th track "3 libras" shows a bitter painful realization that tears open your heart form the second Howerdel's guitar comes in. The entire album from first to last song is perfection only made possible by such master minds that have come together to form A Perfect Circle.
