Opiate Toolarmy sale and the Seal of Xatanitos

Badkittygothgirl posted this morning this little snippet she noticed from a Revolver article regarding the Opiate reissue:

The packages will only be available via Tool’s website (www.toolband.com) on Mar. 26 with the band setting aside a small number of packages (200 of each variation) for Toolarmy members. Toolarmy members will be able to purchase on Mar. 22 via Toolarmy.com.

Good news for Toolarmy members. Presumably we’ll know the price of these articles quite soon.

For what it’s worth, I personally don’t think it’s worthwhile signing up to Toolarmy just for this sale (in general I’d say it’s not worth becoming a member at all). Given that it’s expected to be somewhat expensive (I’m still predicting $100+ for signed copies) I think there will be enough available during the public sale.

It’s also been revealed that 5 copies will contain the Seal of Xatanitos, some kind of golden ticket that will no doubt make you a better Tool fan.

“I thought it was cool.” Adam talks about Limp Bizkit (and Opiate)

A new interview with Adam Jones appeared on Spin today, in which he talked about the recording of Opiate, as well as the upcoming reissue:

What went through your mind when you listened to Opiate again?
A lot of things. I’m proud of what we did. We worked hard, and it’s this little photograph or postcard from that time. It’s like a time machine.

What songs stood out to you most?
The live tracks, “Cold and Ugly” and “Jerk-Off,” which we don’t play anymore. I kind of miss them. Something else that stood out were the themes of Opiate and the way all the songs lead to [the title track]. It’s more the feeling of the record that hit me. It’s hard to describe.

Hopefully we’ll have something other than Opiate to talk about soon!
