this poll is comparing two bands who often work looooooooooong on album releases, ofteh between 4 years and a decade, between albums, Pallas have made 6 albums sine 1984, last in 2012, Tool have made 4 since 1993, and fans is waiting on the fifth somewhere between 2013 and 2018 Wink.

i had actualy planning to put Pallas agaisnt Dream Theater, but as this site ca be quite overloaded with DT polls, a Tool vs Pallas felt more crucual and IMPORTANT (IMO) Cool.

 the ballance of the univese is in stake here Stern Smile.

I'll go with Tool.

Tool by a long shot. Pallas is rather bland. Smile

I have only the latest from each band, but I find 10000 Days to be terribly dull, and I very much like XXV.  So...Pallas!

Is Pallas the band that has that famous (well, famous for their fans) fishing song?

There are many things that I just don't understand.
 
I don't understand why some people drink lager like Fosters or Carling. I don't understand why some people hold racist views. I don't understand why some people like Rod Stewart's voice. I don't understand why the great name "Liberal" is a dirty word in the US.
 
But most of all, I don't understand some peoples' veneration of Tool, who are one of the most uninteresting bands I've heard: not offensive, just mind-numbingly uninteresting and dull. dull, dull.
 
But I like Pallas.

I get that they're good. But I don't know what inspires such rampant admiration from millions of fans.

Pallas are good also Smile

It feels wrong to vote since I never heard anything by Pallas, on the other hand Tool is one of my favorite modern bands, their last couple of albums are fantastic in every way. So no vote until I check out some Pallas videos.

EDIT: But they have to be pretty f**king awsome to beat Tool!
