I think that "Tool" logo is so fucking stupid. Also, this album art is really stupid, and very untool-like. It just looks like some stupid modern photoshop shit that I'd see on some t-shirt at Urban Outfitters.

Also, how reliable is this source?

I kind of agree. This looks more like something you'd see on the cover of a Godspeed!-ish album, not Tool.

Murder yourself, retard.

Another shove toward TOOL's new album being named 10,000 Days.
I think that the TOOL logo looks photoshopped onto those images. Can't really make out the title very well, but its reasonable to believe it might be a hoax.

Although I do like that picture. Very special.

Honestly, I cannot wait until you and all the other fucking 2006 reg'd DOUCHEBAGS get your asses handed to you by the PROPER album.

I realize that we haven't heard/seen new things from the band in a long time, but looking back, this doesn't look very TOOLish to me. The name of the album seems very unTOOLish, and same with the song titles. Honestly though, I'm sure I'm going to love the album no matter what, so I don't care whether this is real or fake.

gl0tch
03-10-2006, 11:47 PM

The TOOL logo looks out of place, and it's obvious that 10,000 Days is Photoshopped. I don't think TOOL nor Joshua Davis would resort to using some godawful capital Helvetica typeface.

Well... you must have a good eye. From that scale, its hard to tell anything. To me, it all seems quite clean and precise while being chaotic... sound familar? As a matter of fact, it sits well with the whole Tool-meets-razor blade logo, imho.

This is not proven to be real by any means. It looks the most authentic when compared to anything else that has become available. But still, we don't know that this is the real album cover.

As far as the album title and tracklisting, THEY ARE REAL. I don't understand why so many must insist on doubting them. I think some of you are so afraid to believe in something. It must run deep with you - so sad.

Think about how stupid it would be for Tool to say,"Uh. We were just joking about the album title and tracklisting. Everyone was in on it. Good one, huh?" That would be totally lame. It won't happen. They are legit.

Now, this album cover art... might be a fraud? Looks interesting though.

alright here's the deal: how did someone get pictures like that and only reveal the cover of what *looks* like a cd booklet?

kinda makes me doubt it...though i'm kinda on the fence about whether it looks photoshopped or not.

Maybe all this "Tool being (too) different" will end up making sense when we listen to the album. ::shrug::

In conclusion: Where's the rest of the booklet?

Okay no offense but that happened early January, while they were still mixing the album, after they finished the mixing, they said it was Lateralus.

03-11-2006, 05:22 AM
We'll see if its fake.

Personally, it wouldn't be that hard to fake the staples on the side, simply scan a booklet in photoshop and then cut and paste the shadow/staples from that to the side of whatever fake image you want, and then viola.

however, the little fold/bend near the bottom would be hard to pull of. Notice that not only does the bottom of the square look warped, you can actually see the fold go up into the picture a little bit. That says to me that it's probably not a fake.


I don't see anyone printing off a fake album booklet just to post it online.. but tool fans are freaking crazy, so who knows?

At any rate, I think it fits tool. This was supposed to be a new experience people, so yeah the art, tracks, etc. are going to be different, but I'm sure in the long run everyone will learn to like it. People have to understand that this isn't Opiate, Undertow, AEnima, or Lateralus, but it is it's own entity, so if all this info is official, then I'm pumped, if not, then I'll be a little ticked at Blair for jerking us around again.

I don't think it's Photoshop'd. I opened the picture in the program and made some adjustments, and the texture of the paper appears consistent through the logo.

Just my opinion though.

I like the artwork, and it seems Toolish to me in that they aren't a band to stay the course. They're always experimenting and exploring.

Personally I think this info is all real. When Lateralus came out, there was a bunch of fake shit, therefore, there's reason to be skeptical of this.

Also, this might all possibly be really good fake information, and on April Fool's they'll give REAL new info and no one will believe it.

ok ok...

if this is real what do you think the theme is? Lets be honest, the Lateralus artwork clearly expressed some major ideas of the album...this stuff just looks random and disoriented...almost like <gulp> the With Teeth cover.

Even Undertows artwork made sense without hearing any of the music. After looking at the tracktitles, album title, and then looking at this artwork, nothing makes sense - know what i mean? I find that to be troubling...in other words SOMETHING is not real here.

orange.juice
03-11-2006, 09:21 AM
hm i donīt know. That logo doesnīt look too good. Look at the logo on Lateralus. It is far better than this one, there is harmony in the typo, while the Davisī one is based on the Lateralus logo, it is a variation from it, though in a lesser graphical quality. Also, by typographical means, it is too far near the edge of the page. It is "stuck" there. And really, that artwork looks too similar to the works of that ISIS guy and other contemporary generic "cool album artworks". Just another vectorgraphics artwork. Tool would rather try to let their new work "stick out" of the rest of cds in the store.

My guess is, this is just a random album artwork sketch by someone, not related to Tool in any way. Something a design student would have made in a couple of hours. Another five minutes to add the logo and title, and done.

I think this artwork is a fairly weak hoax, given that the "Tool" text has clearly just been lifted from the front page of toolband.com. Additionally, I'm fairly sure somebody said this was going to be used as a transparency (a la the lateralus outer sleeve/booklet) and I think the text would be too small if this is the case. However, I quite like this for an album cover. I agree with the person who compared it to Radiohead's more recent cover art (specifically "I Might Be Wrong")

Sorry if this has already been posted and I missed it (the # of threads/posts on this subject is insane), but has anyone else seen this (http://img117.imageshack.us/img117/6246/010101000100111101001111010011.jpg) yet?

It was posted in this thread (http://www.echoingthesound.org/phpbbx/viewtopic.php?t=16255&postdays=0&postorder=asc&start=320), which I know has been mentioned before. I just haven't seen anyone talk about the new pic that was posted.

Anyway, if you open it up and photoshop, desaturate it, and mess with the brightness/contrast a little, you can read the faint blue text. Of course, this text happens to be the supposed track list. The style is very "Toolish" (since that seems to be a popular word these days) as well. Doesn't mean it's real... but either way, someone at least spent a little time on this one. Even appears to have copyright info down in the bottom left corner. If you guys want I'll post up a modified version with all the PS work done if you can't do it yourself.

Oh yeah, happy 1st post to me.

EDIT: Went ahead and uploaded an easy to read version of it here (http://img59.imageshack.us/img59/5963/easytoread7ye.jpg).

Sasha
03-11-2006, 08:08 PM
Ok, to all you that are kind of wondering whether this may be in fact real or not...

Consider that, even though Tool is known as a band that reinvents themselves and uses considerative input from a huge array of sources and ideas in order to evolve and in turn provide music that allows them and their fans to grow. From pure hated in Opiate to settling down and letting things flow and understanding life in Lateralus, the artwork suggested by some guy on that other forum is very immature and isn't very much connected to that growing spirit they seem to exhibit.

I for one, like the art as I'm a fan of very techy looking and abstract shapings. However, taking into account their tendancy to grow, and art direction being a huge part of that, is it not fair to say that this may be too simple and immature on a level of thought? Tool's music circles around knowledge and letting your mind evolve and grow. Tying in their art with that is their second nature. I'd expect something more complex, even though they might not be producing another spiritual ride a la Lateralus but maybe in fact something dulled down and in terms of politics and actual influences by every day things aside from the mannerisms of life we're supposed to follow.

Was it not also said that Alex Grey would be involved in art direction as well this time around again? I believe Davis' artwork is only to be felt via the website, as that is primarily his forte. So, that new logo and that artwork is primarily the influence of Davis, thus suggesting some kind of falseness perhaps?

gl0tch
03-11-2006, 08:44 PM
its kinda been proven in other threads that Alex Grey WILL NOT be associated with this album.

As far as the art being too simple - 1.) We are looking at poor quality reproductions. 2.) Even still from what I can tell its kinda complex, albeit only one page of several.

As they say, the devil is in the details...

THIS IS NOT THE NEW ALBUM ART. Look, that guy who released this stuff said he found it on his fucking server. Heīs "supposedly" a guy in the graphics industry, and that server serves as a server for the Tool artwork to be printed. Wouldnīt it be more logical that any leaks found there would be in a significantly higher quality? For printing? Those 380x350 pics are totally worthless. Theyīre only good for web use. Further, if you take any random cd boklet, youīll notice that the front and the back of it is actually ONE SHEET (whoa), the offset printing machine prints the front and the back at one time (sounds unbelievable i know), so we would rather see the front AND the back of the booklet in one pic. If that guy wanted to have any credibility, he should upload the original printing files (which would be several megabytes in size), but nah, he made some super lo res jpegs which are easy to hook up onto image shack. F-A-K-E.

gl0tch
03-12-2006, 12:59 AM
The thing that cracks me up the most is that you guys know EVERYTHING from a small image. If you actually read what she said, they were color matching for the slip case, NOT printing the actual booklet. If thats the case, (and according to her its going to be semi-transluscent black, white, and gold) then it could be likely that they were only sent a few files for averaging. It makes sense why she wouldn't have access to a plethora of higher resolution images just for a damn slip case. For all we know, she works in a plastic facility.

As for the yam bag thing, how can you even tell? From what she says, the depth is SICK. Granted, I dont know how she can tell from *those* images, but if things are floating, there would be some type of edge fidelity distinction to separate it from its background.

edit: plus it looks like a fist to me. kinda ties into the more violent / political vibe we have been hearing about.

It seems to me you are the only person who thinks they aren't good. For christ's sake we are talking about reproductions of a reproduction at a small scale... Yes, no one can say for sure at that size, but even at that dimension they *still* look good and I am giving it the benefit of the doubt that the devil is in the details. I'm starting to think they could release the actual album art (or already did) and you would still think it sucks.

Just because the art doesnt fit into your magical mystical esoteric idealism about what Tool's art is supposed to look like doesnt mean its bad. Its ashame you need everything completely clear for you and spelled out. Enter a bit of abstraction and your brain begins to break down. Its truly amazing to watch.

Supposedly it'll be released with some sort of sleeve, like Lateralus, only more partial and transparent. Butterfly coming out of the cocoon (viceroy butterfly-- viscera) and all that nonsense.


Borrowing from another thread, a message Adam posted on myspace:

*alumno discipulus viscus pectus duae - *tria conventus sanctus amor
viginti tres

translating to: nursling disciple viscera pectoris two * three coming together holy love twenty three


The idea behind it is triunity-- Brahman the Creator (the butterfly), Vishnu the Preserver (the cocoon), and Shiva the Destroyer (the bones). Note that "Os" is Latin for "bone." "Clé d'Or" is French for "Golden Key." I think "The Veil" goes back to the idea of the cocoon, but I'm not so sure on that.

If you actually read what she said, they were color matching for the slip case, NOT printing the actual booklet. If thats the case, (and according to her its going to be semi-transluscent black, white, and gold) then it could be likely that they were only sent a few files for averaging.
Are you kidding? For any, ANY graphic design work, you would not use anything like any of these images as a master. They're tiny and poorly web-compressed. White-balancing, color-matching, or detailing, you would ALWAYS be using the highest resolution possible.

Of course the linked images could theoretically be low-res copies that were made strictly for being fast-loading and hosted on the web...

that is fake.

One thing I'm pretty sure about with the new album is that it will not say the title on the cover.

Undertow, Aenima and Lateralus didn't, afterall.

Wow, some of you guys are believing this shit? You want me to get my friend who's a pro at photoshop to make some random 3D image and tell you it's the new album art too?

I can't wait to read what all of you idiots say when Blair posts "APRIL FOOLS" on April 1st and gives us the real info.

If you could take pictures of the artwork outside of its' jewel case... like the perforations for the folds, and close-ups without shiny plastic making it look legit.... that would rule.

show us the liner notes, the open sleeve, not paper inside a box.
cause this proves nothing.


and that artwork is not that great. in fact, not good at all.
none of them so far impress me in any way.
if your are not a designer you will surely get impressed too easily.
i am a designer.

dude, you made claims about what is good or bad design and tried to back it up by posting a link to a site about webdesign, NOT graphic design. There's a difference. All I was doing was pointing out that distinction. RELAX. You're the one who got defensive first.

Go ahead and post links to whatever you want and I'll continue to comment on whatever *I* want. Ok?
