Re: Lateralus 20th Anniversary

10k days came out on May 2, 2006. The leak came around MJK's birthday in mid-April. Anyway, this thread made me think about the possibility of TOOL releasing a 30th anniversary of Opiate on March 10th next year, 2022. They obviously did the extended version of the song Opiate on tour back in 2015 to...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Also, because it had promised "New Everything" I was incredibly excited when I saw the fourth tab said TOUR. For about half a second I thought "Maybe they might be able to pencil in some November 2021 dates" etc.

It was a fun half a second while it lasted...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I was kinda hoping that clicking on the final tab listed as 'Fear Inoculum' would suddenly reveal you can order it on vinyl or some new 'deluxe' version or another update they've made but... nothing too exciting. :( When the signed Lateralus vinyls were just quietly sitting there many many years ago...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Yeah I know, the Foo Fighters being on the Friday night etc. However, it only lists TOOL as having 1 gig in 2021, namely the Thursday night slot at Bonnaroo. Anyway, I'm sure we will hear soon enough once 'touring' is allowed to resume as planned. Hopefully the band can start up again in October or ...

Re: Has Tool made too many albums?

No. I think one more album in a few years, say maybe 2025 or so, will be just about right. Some might also argue they haven't made enough albums. Going 13 years between 10,000 Days and Fear Inoculum was obviously frustrating as a fan. Opiate, Undertow, Aenima, Lateralus, 10 000 Days, Fear Inoculum a...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

I'll limit my elite list to only 5 or 6 songs I'd find it hard to never hear again: Third Eye 7empest Jambi Stinkfist Pneuma 46 & 2 I was tempted to include Reflection here but only if we can hear the Disposition/Reflection/Triad piece altogether etc. My list above doesn't include any songs from Lat...

7empest is better, yet it isn't even in the elite best League of tool songs.
So I'm just wondering which songs would be in this elite best league... care to share 4 or 5?

Busty I'd rather hear Descending instead of Lateralus right now... I'm sure you agree. I didn't see the 'play Prison Sex twice' suggestion coming though so well done on that one Tyson. Schism with the extended middle part is really solid stuff, and Justin's little telling the crowd to be quiet befor...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Hey, random TOOL question for all of you. Which track from Fear Inoculum do you think will become a staple in their live shows for the next 10 years? Let's say the band stay together making music, maybe one more album in a few years, and keep playing live shows until 2030. I'm thinking of tracks lik...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

We had ZERO cases of locally acquired Covid in New South Wales on Wednesday and police are now giving out $200 fines to people who don't wear masks on public transport or in shopping centres... BUT then you read about what's happening in Washington and it changes your perspective.

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

What exactly are you right about? Has the band confirmed any of your theories here? Have you heard from Adam, Maynard, Danny or Justin to say "Well done!" and "You've cracked this puzzle!" etc.? If you've been sitting on this since February 2020, then you have been delusional for nearly a full year....

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Yes it does have relevance. You are just making shit up to fit your narrative.

Please DO NOT make a 2nd or 3rd video with all of your leftover content... unless you want to be critiqued even further.

Oh boy. So now we have the first 7 primes, namely 2, 3, 5, 7, 11, 13 and 17 adding up to 58 as being just another 'example' of the band contributing something cool here? I don't think so. That is you trying to draw meaning out of something that is pretty much nothing. Danny being at the end of his s...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Also, you're now mentioning 58 as having "central and enormous importance" to the concept/structure of the album. I think that is stretching too far. Danny Carey was 58 when the album came out like you said in your video... but the band didn't deliberately choose to wait for Danny to be 58 years old...

Exactly. I brought up 764 seconds. I never said anything about 7 + 6 + 4 = 17. You were the one who took my 764 contribution and pointed out the 7 + 6 + 4 thing. You are delusional. If Adam Jones was available right now, he'd stop you and say "Yeah, I'm sorry but..." You should have presented your v...

Yeah but I was the one who brought up 764 seconds in my posts and now YOU are using the number I introduced to confirm your bias here. Saying 764 is important because 7 + 6 + 4 = 17 is a classic example of confirmation bias; you are looking for things to fit your prior beliefs. There is no way the b...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

Okay, I get all of that, but I still think the 12 + 44 = 56 thing is too much of a stretch or jump here. I don't think the band would deliberately make the track run to 12 mins 44 seconds just so they could have 12 + 44 = 56 and think it was cool. In fact, even if you are correct and they deliberate...

All the pi shit he goes on about at the 5 minute mark is bullshit. He even says 22/8 and then has 22/7 just after. During every bar of 22, Adam and Justin play 16 notes each.
