Is the band "Tool" satanic or just philosophical?

[quote:Anonymous Coward 11705783:MV8xMTU1NjAwXzM0OTExOTYyX0I0RUNDRkIz] Check out Danny Carey's website: http://www.dannycarey.com/ [quote:http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Danny_Carey]Danny Carey Daniel Edwin "Danny" Carey (born May 10, 1961) is an American drummer best known for his work in American Grammy Award-winning progressive metal band Tool. [...] Carey progressed through high school and later college at the University of Missouri–Kansas City, he began expanding his studies in percussion with theory into the principles of geometry, science, and metaphysics as well as delving into Sacred Geometry and certain hidden aspects of life and the occult. [...] American progressive metal band Tool is heavily influenced by Crowley's works, ranging from Danny Carey's Enochian Magic Board, supposed references to Qabalah in Lateralus, and citations by Blair MacKenzie Blake on the Tool newsletter to name a few. [...] Religion and the occult Although Carey has not officially aligned himself with any particular school of philosophy or religion, he has projected a deep interest in and understanding for the magical arts - among them various occult teachings. Enochian symbols, geometric designs, and special symbolic percussive devices are featured on and in his drum kit. He is also a collector of First Edition Aleister Crowley books as well as books by one of Crowley's more innovative students, Kenneth Grant. Geometric designs Carey has laid claim to various drumming techniques that use sacred geometric figures such as the unicursal hexagram. The final product is very recognizable, fluent drumming, although to him it is much more: the official Tool website claims that Danny uses drumming as a ritual similar to occult rituals, with purposes varying from spiritual exploration to "a gateway [which] summoned a daemon he has contained...that has been delivering short parables similar to passages within [i]The Book of Lies[/i]". Another geometric reference from the website was the inclusion of [i]Nothing in This Book Is True[/i]... by Bob Frissell on the band's recommended reading list, a book that deals with sacred geometry and the evolution of human consciousness.[/quote] [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dLPfocEEi54[/youtube][youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Rx9oU1CF7HA[/youtube] [/quote]
I'm very curious. The message I get from them is pretty clear, and ironically, somewhat true the King James version of the Bible.
I am not calling Tool "Christian prog-metal".
Just curious to see what you think...
