There's a bit of talk regarding it being "Egyptian" but personally I don't see the correlation.
I can see it as similar to the "eyes" in Egyptian symbology.

"Take the two Eyes of Horus, the black and the white. Take them to your forehead, (so) that they may illuminate your face." - Sethe, 1908/1960, § 33a

the beautiful face : the two Wedjat Eyes

Both complex mythological processes related to the Two Eyes "happen" in the "zep tepy". The Single Eye represented the cosmological, theological, royal register, whereas the Wedjat Eye had anthropological, social and popular connotations. The Single Eye deals with the first and second generation of gods. The Wedjat Eye with the last generation of gods. Before creation, only one sacred Single Eye existed. After creation, Pharaoh's two eyes watched the world. His right, Solar Eye is the Eye of Re (theological), his left, Lunar Eye is the Eye of Horus, or Eye of Thoth (anthropological). Hence, Pharaoh's beautiful face was a balanced expression of all major precreational, mythical "events". In his coronation at Memphis, all constitutive elements of divine kingship came together and "the beautiful face" (epithet of Ptah of Memphis) was established.

It's just a logo, it doesn't really matter if you dislike it, or it doesn't grow on you

huh! right when ur just about to give up they throw this online around 9pm Sunday night. ok!

my initial thought was i like it better then the 10k logo. after looking at it for awhile it feels divisive or empty space or something. the line that runs through the middle stops before it reaches the centre. the lines going vertical through both O O's adds to that like its a wall. that isnt very tool like.

i like the idea of folding it over. i didnt think of that. more to the story here ? i dont know.

its ok i guess. haha.

I quite like it. Cool cos it gets you thinking what's the rest gonna look like? No big deal if people don't like it it's just a logo. Unless your big into the artwork side of things of course.

I only got into the band due to the artwork, I usually go to their concerts with ear plugs so the horrendous music doesn't spoil the visual pleasure.

It's some new font. Looks nice but I'm interested in the final product here, as in the full album artwork.

There's also all the other new music that's a kind of a big deal for me... artwork or no artwork.

I'm curious as to how they'll continue to release snippets of new info etc.

Yes indeed Mathew as am I, as am I. We've been thrown a breadcrumb from the table so to speak.

I like it. It looks like something out of Alex Grey's Entheon work, which makes me think that he might have designed this logo.

i took Shed523's idea about joining the two sides together. i just used paint to paste the other half in and this is what it looks like. i see 2019 at the top part. the rest looks weird and ya! it has the T part like that ''chod'' logo has... it doesnt even need to be done like that to see those things but whatever, thought id try for fun.

Well I've still not seen them but I take no chances since the pixies damaged my hearing at Alexander Palace. Bastards.

Lenticular packaging onwards always struck me as a deliberate incentive in some measure to buy the album vs whatever other means was around to skittle revenue - casette dubbing, CD writing etc.
Although now that I think about it.... isn't most of the revenue going to the record company anyway, and touring is really where bands financially do their best? Either way, I appreciate the effort made with their packaging/art.... ill fitting socks/unsold t-shirt quilts.

I was responding to Busty who said I was going to flip about it. If you prefer I could make up some rant and derail the thread?
