“I couldn’t wait to plug them in and listen to Sepultura’s Roots album on them, because they’re the size of the Glastonbury PA. So I put in a CD of Roots and I turned it up to 10—and that fucking record blew those speakers right out. Fifty-thousand-dollar speakers, gone because of Roots …”
Joel McIver, My Bloody Roots: From Sepultura to Soulfly and Beyond: The Autobiography

“The religious upbringing that most people go through, and its association with Western religion, is all based on lies. At some point you either wake up and realise [that] they are lies, or you continue in a fog. I realised I had been lied to and wanted to know the truth.”
Joel McLver, Unleashed: The Story of TOOL

“There is a big difference between religion and spirituality. If you’re walking a spiritual path, it is because you’re trying to help yourself or others for the greater good. You’re trying to become a more conscious being through your actions and by understanding what motivates you. Religion, on the other hand, is basically a marketing plan. There is a middleman involved, and somewhere along the line someone is going to ask you for your credit-card number. They’re going to pass a plate in front of you, trick you into giving ten per cent of your income to some child-molesting fuckhead, or worse, trick you into giving up your civil rights over some storybook.”
Joel McLver, Unleashed: The Story of TOOL
