Tool – Special Guests Compilation

Scarletletterman from Toolarmy has put together a compilation ove live bootlegs with many of the guest musicians that have played with Tool over the years.  It seems pretty comprehensive to me, so grab a copy from Megaupload.  Big thumbs up! Here’s a list of the tracks: Holiday in Cambodia – with Jello Biafra ex-The Dead Kennedys- 12.11.07 Sober with Serj Tankian of System of A Down- 01.19.07 Lateralus with Tom… Read More »Tool – Special Guests Compilation

Poll Results: Favorite Mike Patton Project?

Last weeks poll asked what was your favorite Mike Patton project? Personally I’m a Tomahawk fan, but it came as no surprise to me to see that Faith No More won the poll.  Faith No More were pretty much a defining band for me as a teenager.  Without them, and particularly Angel Dust I probably would never got into Heavy Music at all, and would be stuck in the purgatory… Read More »Poll Results: Favorite Mike Patton Project?

Hellboy’s Best of 2006

I know some people out there are interested in my opinion. If you’re not one of those, stop reading now. You won’t find (much) Tool information in this post. Since I don’t listen to every single album out there, rather than try and compile a top ten list out of the probably 11 albums I’ve listen to this year, I’m just going to post a few mini-reviews on albums that… Read More »Hellboy’s Best of 2006
