Puscifer is an experimental project by Maynard James Keenan (Tool/A Perfect Circle). Unlike in his other projects, he experiments with a lot different sounds and ideas that partly barely have anything to do with "rock" at all. Puscifer is "as much a clothing line as it is a band", and Maynard James Keenan has described it as "Simply a playground for the various voices in my head, it's a space with no clear or discernible goals. It's where my Id, Ego, and Anima all come together to exchange cookie recipes."
For a long time the only released tracks were "REV 22:20", "REV 22:20 (REV 4:20 Mix)" (remixed by Charlie Clouser) and "The Undertaker (Renholder Mix)" featured on the "Underworld - 2003", "Saw II - 2005" and "Underworld: Evolution - 2006" soundtracks.
In October 2007 the EP 'Don't Shoot the Messenger' and the album '"V" Is for Vagina' were released on Puscifer Entertainment. Featuring songs written by what Keenan describes as "Maynard James Keenan and a revolving door of talented people." Some of the listed guest musicians include Danny Lohner(Renholder) Milla Jovovich, Lisa Germano, Josh Eustis, Satan, Lustmord, Jonny Polonski, Tim Alexander(Primus/Laundry), Tim Commerford, Brad Wilk, Ainjel Emme, Tom Morello, Gil Sharone, Trey Gunn and many more.
