View Full Version : Aldaraia, 10,000 Days, and what to believe...

I posted this in the thread that gave a link to a picture of a CD and an email saying that Aldaraia is going to release with 10,000 Days... 10,000 Days being the live DVD and Aldaraia being the new album

So heres why I'm going to believe in this rumor:
PLEASE READ ALL OF THIS
Heres a list of facts:
1. Aldaraia and its tracklist were released in mid-February.

2. They included the (now confirmed) release date of May 2nd. If you remember back to a month or two ago, we were all scrambling with release dates between mid-April and the end of this year. To pinpoint May 2nd so exactly would have been a very nice guess.

3. The Aldaraia tracklisting had 11 songs (if my memory is correct). The current Toolband tracklisting also has 11 songs.

4. The tracklisting for Aldaraia included a song "23", which is now on the current Toolband tracklisting (albeit in a different language). There is NO. FUCKING. WAY. that that is a coincidence. None. With only 11 tracks, and a huge array of words to choose from, that statistically cannot happen. Period.

5. The current artwork on Toolband is obviously an Alex Grey piece, very similar to a backdrop used on the Lateralus tour. We all seem to agree that Tool choosing something so similar in style for their new album's artwork is unlikely (if you don't, then you're probably crossing your fingers for Lateralus II, which the band and Blair have both said is not going to happen).

6. "The Pot".

7. We know Tool's last 6 Lateralus tour shows were recording with the idea in mind that they would eventually release them all on a live DVD.

8. We have heard nothing at all about the new DVD for over 4 months from Blair. Even with the new album in the works, I find it unlikely that he would just 'forget' entirely about it. No mention in the last few newsletters, no updates refering to it. Nothing. Even though we're talking about Blair, it still seems off. For a while there, he would mention it every few weeks just to let us know it was still in the works.

9. If you look at the picture of the CD in the original post in this thread, you'll notice that the inner circle of the CD is pressed. Its not just a sticker or whatever put on there. Which means that that is a real CD (or someone has access to a pressing machine). Not saying that that means its a Tool CD, just saying that it is a CD. I don't recognize it. It rules.

10. Although debatable, many people here think that Adam has the word "The Thorn" written on his hand in a few of the promo pics we've seen. Those were taken (I believe) in late summer of last year.

11. Those pictures are gone from their original site. No explaination as to why, and Blair NEVER ONCE mentioned their existence. Why, after they obviously leaked out and everybody is talking about them (and probably emailing Blair) would he not even mention them?

And something everyone seems to be forgetting:
12. Tool specifically said that they were going to take steps to prevent leaks. I have seen no obvious steps thus far, and yet nothing has leaked yet. Its only a few weeks away until release, and we haven't seen any leaks yet. That is pretty unusual... most albums leak around a month before release... some go as far as two months. So why is this happening?

And something to think about: Doesn't the title "10,000 Days" lend itself far more to a live DVD than an album?

I'm not going to try to defend the fact that that CD is in a black-backed CD case. Theres a few good reasons I can think of as to why it would be like that. I'm also not going to go into how easy it would be for Tool to leak Aldaraia months ago in order to squash 'rumors' early. And I'm definately not going to try to explain why people seem to be believing everything Blair is saying all of a sudden, when he has never been very trustworthy in the first place.

Its been my theory that Tool were up to something exactly like what the threadstarted described, and as far as I'm concerned, all the evidence points towards something like this happening. I seriously hope its true...

Hey I read it all. And as much as I hope for a DVD plus CD release I think it will not happen on the same day. They want to sell cd's, releasing a dvd will hamper cd sales. I guess?!

Secondly I have no money to buy a DVD and a CD at the same time :\

Still, Aldaraia was a hoax. Admitted by the dude who made it up.

why would they release a dvd with a cd? they have pretty good marketing skills (i.e: release parabola/schism as seperate dvds)

A-fucking-men.

Ocelot and gl0tch will be having a rim-job-from-the-majority-of-TDN party on May 2nd. You're all invited.

(As for the argument that the guy who made it up admitted it, that makes absolutely no sense. Anyone could have said they made it up without proof. Did they provide their notes from like December or January to convince your otherwise?

Seriously, what if I had said I made it up? There's no difference. C'mon.)

There are plenty of reasons why someone might have said that. It could have been someone directly related to Tool, for all we know. If I remember correctly, the guy who posted Aldaraia on that forum had only posted a few other times... meaning he wasn't a regular there.

why would they release a dvd with a cd? they have pretty good marketing skills (i.e: release parabola/schism as seperate dvds)
Perhaps they'll release on the same day, but as seperate packages? Or perhaps you can opt to only by the CD, or you can get the CD with the DVD? I've seen other bands do that before. Its not too uncommon.

McRoggles
03-23-2006, 10:47 PM
Blair fucked up with Aldaraia. Once there was this 'mail' with a tracklist (pic floating around here), which was different as the Aldaraia one. Blair talks about the blackened out PO boxes, that was on the mail not with Aldaraia.

WHY DID BLAIR SPECIFICALLY CALL OUT ALDARAIA AS A FAKE?

In all fairness, Blair also specifically mentioned Teleincision....and although it's very obvious, it's stunned me that no one brought up the fact blair actually confused Aldaraia with another tracklist:

Finally, about the “Aldaraia” document that has been circulating on the internet as of late: It is obviously a hoax, and, in my opinion, not a particularly good one. Even a cursory glance at the contents reveals several tell-tale signs that it’s a complete fraud (not including the questionable date formatting). For instance, why would the band’s P.O. Box address be blacked out? It would appear that the perpetrators of the hoax were attempting to make the letter appear more authentic by adding this little touch, but, as it was completely unnecessary to do so, it only betrays it being a genuine 'document.' Also, I don’t think anyone in the band would add an ‘n’ to the ‘Enochian’ word “Aldaraia!”

Blair got it confused with the forged letter with all the dorky names like Hyparxis and Inertia with the blacked out po box...

Very interesting Ocelot, it'll give me a lot to think about.

Alright, I'm gonna take some very selfish credit here.... when the album mini art came out and it was announced on the TDN boards, I was the one who suggested (rather, hoped) that it was the live DVD art. I'm glad it's catching on. =D

Oh, come on... I just signed up here days ago and I've actually contributed SOME sort of idea already! lol

Lol, awesome. I was at one of the last shows so I've been having a boner for almost 4 years waiting for this DVD... let's hope it's out soon!

One of the first things I thought of (dreaming about it) was that there are different angle tracks... and one of those tracks would be what was happening on the vid screens they had. Hope they do that.

heres the tracklisting. anyone interested

Aldaraia


1) The Thorn
2) Annuled
3) Visceral
4) The Lucid
5) 23
6) Permute
7) The Median
8 ) Aldaraian
9) Mandalic
10) The Ascent
11) Laiad Kayenth


also wanted to say, didn't someone who went to listening party say, " the last song on the cd was the best Tool song ever?" On Andy's review it was supposed to be a a segue or out track. not a song. Not sure if that is anything.

But I don't know anymore, what is what. I'm fine with either name though

I can't stress enough how easy it is to claim something is real or fake online. For all we know, that Maynard guy from Goldfoot's forum is playing everybody. Adam spends a lot of time on his Myspace... why is it such a stretch that something like this might happen?

Another interesting point: Why hasn't the artwork leaked yet? Blair's post was the first thing we've seen that was 'definately' going to be part of the new album art. He specifically said that the artwork was going to leak, and as a result told us the name of the album (and then the tracklisting), to "avoid confusion".

So wheres the fucking artwork?

Ok wait a minute....I read that entire thread, and my Bullshit detector went off the chart. I honestly don't think this "Maynard" poster made up the list AT FUCKING ALL.

First he says:

Suddenly i had created a song about secret air force bases

There's no such song that eludes to that, it was only mentioned here on TDN when someone said they hoped Laiad Kayenth was about secret air force bases. And then he says: And this is the BIGGEST BULLSHIT I've read in a while:

I checked the Enochian Dictionary for Laiad

Kayeth was a word i made up :-) That was my worst ones honestly


This is complete fucking horseshit. First of all, it was Kayenth (he fucking spelled it wrong), and NO FUCKING WAY he coincedentally made up the one word that's connected to the area EXACTLY at Four Corners, where the Temple of Isis is supposedly located in the Grand Canyone....

This thread is just a big attempt to dredge up some controversy over old news. I could probably spend hours pointing out all the biased things, but why the hell would I want to do that? It has already been done a thousand times already.

Aldaraia is not the name of the new album. Some people just love to create controversy. The album is called '10,000 Days'. It is coming out May 2nd.

Now, if you want to talk about something interesting and less annoying, how about that first single? We should be getting that any day now. Do you think Blair will let everyone know which song it will be, and when it will be played on the radio next week? I sure hope so.

You're on his side, and I'm listening to what you've got to say just fine. Hes just a troll, and I don't want him cluttering up this thread with his jackassery. He isn't adding to the conversation, just pushing his little beliefs like he knows for certain whats up, when he really doesn't. And that bothers me.

Now that we've established that he's lying, I've got a question to ask everyone:

Does anybody not think that my theory is at least plausable? That Tool really could pull this on us all in slightly more than a month? Even if you believe what Blair has said so far, isn't there at least a possibility that me, Nod and Systolic are right?

ME:
To the folks who said it sounded like Lateralus's titles..
I've said this 50 times already... This new album is supposed to be the SEQUEL to Lateralus.. I expect some similarity....

Amd about the M******.. Mandalic is 8 letters, starts with M... They never said that "LK" was dropped.. and theres no way to know that he is referring to the same thing as he was before.. you know how Blair is. I think this is the most plausible yet by far... kind of makes me anxious.


PS - I POSTED THIS BACK ON FEBRARY 19th!!


BLAIR:

(a curious bit of side phenomena, perhaps, but one that wasn't even worth mentioning in the transcript). What had happened is that, after the message indicator spelled out ********, the planchette then moved very quickly across the board and actually bumped into the leg of one of the sitters. This was Srr. (technikrym omitted). What makes this particularly remarkable (in light of this new track listing) is that the Soror's first initial is M.

There is always the (small) chance you are right, no doubt about that. If you are right credits you will get.

I want to rephrase: Aldaraian is something Tool would never do.

Aldaraia is more 'accepted' because it has a more Lateralus feel to the names. Blair states 10,000 Days (!) will be different.

You're on his side, and I'm listening to what you've got to say just fine. Hes just a troll, and I don't want him cluttering up this thread with his jackassery. He isn't adding to the conversation, just pushing his little beliefs like he knows for certain whats up, when he really doesn't. And that bothers me.



Now that we've established that he's lying, I've got a question to ask everyone:

Does anybody not think that my theory is at least plausable? That Tool really could pull this on us all in slightly more than a month? Even if you believe what Blair has said so far, isn't there at least a possibility that me, Nod and Systolic are right?


AHEM! Ocelot, you have read my posts havent you? I'm one of the most hated people on here because of my saying this was all fake from the get go.

To the folks who said it sounded like Lateralus's titles..
I've said this 50 times already... This new album is supposed to be the SEQUEL to Lateralus.. I expect some similarity....

Amd about the M******.. Mandalic is 8 letters, starts with M... They never said that "LK" was dropped.. and theres no way to know that he is referring to the same thing as he was before.. you know how Blair is. I think this is the most plausible yet by far... kind of makes me anxious.

BLAIR:

(a curious bit of side phenomena, perhaps, but one that wasn't even worth mentioning in the transcript). What had happened is that, after the message indicator spelled out ********, the planchette then moved very quickly across the board and actually bumped into the leg of one of the sitters. This was Srr. (technikrym omitted). What makes this particularly remarkable (in light of this new track listing) is that the Soror's first initial is M.

M:
the planchetter bumped M Maynards legg. Title: For Marie.

Never it has been stated the new album will be a sequel to Lateralus. It will be something different.

However, I wouldn't mind a Lateralus sequel :) But something new would be cool as well.

Translated from a german website... only website that google found with the word Kayenth

The airport Kayenth consists of a hard coating track without each buildings, lain next to a Highway intersection in the desert. A somewhat unaccustomed view compared to Europe. Four Corners lies near the point at that the four countries Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and meet Utah.

http://www.flugsport.ch/beitraege/Mexico/nmexico.htm

And if Laiad means secret..(as stated in my above link a few posts back), Kayenth is a hidden airport in New Mexico.. and Faaip De Oiad was the last track on Lateralus, which referred to aliens.. and theres a common tie between New mexico and aliens due to roswell...

There is always the (small) chance you are right, no doubt about that. If you are right credits you will get.

I want to rephrase: Aldaraian is something Tool would never do.

Aldaraia is more 'accepted' because it has a more Lateralus feel to the names. Blair states 10,000 Days (!) will be different.

Same goes for you all... if your side is right, I'll be the first to admit how wrong I was. Doesn't mean its not a lot of fun to try to figure this stuff out right now, though :)

About Aldaraian.... I'm unclear as to why they wouldn't do that. AEnima was changed to AEnema for the track name, and neither of those are words (in any language). Why is it so far fetched that they should add an "n" the the album title to create a track?

Why else would tool be pissed at a review leaking. Descriptions of the songs don't help them leak. But they would make a fake list much less believable.
Exactly. The Andy King review lines up with both tracklistings without any descrepancy that I can see.

The obvious jaw-dropping effects it would have on the entire fan community.


Deeper thoughts I do have...
________
I can tell you that it's not out of the question. I could be a jackass and post this in a new thread, but I'm too lazy to be that annoying.

I saw this idea of duel packaging in the Summer. After buying Magnetic Field's "69 Love Songs" at the other worldly Other Music, We were playing it in Micro CoSM and I was talking with Eli, (one of the Studio Directors...Blair's talked about him a few times) and the half joking idea of a Tool Box came up when looking at the 69 Love Songs Packaging.

This idea was proposed to Alex the next day and he loved it. He immediately dropped his day's painting plans and designed a "Tool Box". It was based off of a fresh painting of his that looks like a series of Egyptian Eyes in an Orange Field. The idea was that it could be packaged and sized in various shapes to contain any of the following:

-The Live DVD plus a recording of the ceremony seen here http://alexgrey.net/2l/20.jpg
-The New Album
-Lateralus
-The TOOL book

This idea was proposed to Adam Jones over the phone around August 10th. Adam was a big fan of the idea, and wanted to see what Alex was up to.

During this time Alex also designed a Menu interface with a splitting head that he felt could be used for the live DVD or purhapes a music video DVD. Sound Familiar? Sadly the version of this found in the Parabol/a is very rough and not as detailed as Alex's original idea. But this proves that Adam obviously enjoyed the idea.

Now that the new art is out, friend's working at CoSM have mentioned that he's been dropping some interesting hints about his heavier-than-we-think current involvement. He's also be working on "projects" at home, which is a rarity these days. This whole thing is so inside that even the CoSM family is gossiping!

So I'm hoping that this Box does get involved at some point, even if it's down the road and months after the album release.

I was there when it was completed (I even proofed it...my personal favorite moment of working at CoSM) and all that was left to do was get an introduction written by Blair, Adam, or both. So the book has been done for about 7 months and last time I talked about it with Alex, it was in Tool Lawyers hands. The book is also being printed from Alex's side, CoSM Press, so I imagine a duel release would certainly take some Lawyering.

I haven't asked about it in a long time because I hate to ever act like I'm just saying hi to ask for Tool updates. I did a pretty good job acting like a sane, decent fan of Tool and I want to continue to uphold that OBVIOUSLY FALSE image with my CoSM friends ;-)

Think about the kind of impact this would have on everyone if it turns out to be true. People would lose their fucking minds...

It'd rule. I wouldn't put it past Tool to try to do something like this, either. Its so... Toolish to fuck with everyone like they are and suddenly make up for all the bad blood by blowing us out of the water...


yeah, i was thinking IF they did do it and this is fake. Don't tell us. Just let us find out come May 2nd. I mean, they want to prevent leaks. For the most part, you won't know what to DL without the real names. People taking the domain names will take the wrong ones and make the wrong merchandise with stuff as well.

But I don't know if they'd go through with it though.

I'd say all this is indeed plausible, with an i... Just kidding man, I had to look it up myself. So...

Is it likely? No. Is it possible? Yes.

The way I see it is that there is really no way of knowing 100% for sure with these guys. That's what makes it fun. In the very least, these theories give us something to talk about until May 2nd. I do find some of the things that have been done and said to be quite suspicious. It's just hard to tell if all this suspicion is soley a result of us, the fans, or if the band & friends have actually given us a reason to be skeptical.

It's strange... my mind is telling myself "It's 10,000 days so STFU n00b," but my gut seems to be telling me otherwise. Unfortunately, what I think it comes down to is that I know 10,000 Days is the title, but I happen to like Aldaraia better, especially as far as track listings are concerned. It's a natural human tendency to believe what you want to be real instead of what is a more logical truth. Hell, just look at religion.

Still, at least you guys are having fun with it. Even if it doesn't turn out to be true, you shouldn't be disappointed simply because of that one fact. Better than sitting around twiddling your thumbs all day like I do.

By this logic then, the people getting hoaxed are everybody but us, right? Because they all believe that 10,000 Days is the new album and aren't really questioning it.... so when May 2nd rolls around, they all get majorly slapped in the face with something they had no idea to expect.

I see it like this - - Its only the internet. The guy who "made that up" could have been anyone...

Think about it like this - what better way to stop leaks and extra attention being given to the real tracklisting than by making it a lie from the start? Maybe its just conspiracy theory, and maybe I'm crazy..
BUT

Those track titles had more correlation with Blairs postings, and the little subtlties, i.e. The latin reference to 23 on Adam's myspace, the enochian reference involving roswell and the hidden airfield (Laiad Kayenth), the news on toolband some time back about the "sequel to Lateralus", etc. than anything I have seen yet, INCLUDING 10,000 days. Its just a feeling I have. I'm probably wrong.

Just to make sure it's clear that the author of Aldaraia is still unknown:

Translated from a german website... only website that google found with the word Kayenth

The airport Kayenth consists of a hard coating track without each buildings, lain next to a Highway intersection in the desert. A somewhat unaccustomed view compared to Europe. Four Corners lies near the point at that the four countries Colorado, New Mexico, Arizona and meet Utah.

Drunvalo admits that, not being an astrologer himself, he does not know what his friend was lining up with what. All he knows is that the woman communicated to him her discovery that when she did whatever she did with that drawing, the three pillars of the Golden Mean Rectangle's diagonal at Giza seemed to be pointing in the general direction of the Four Corners area of the United States (the Grand Canyon is in this area).

Finally, about the “Aldaraia” document that has been circulating on the internet as of late: It is obviously a hoax, and, in my opinion, not a particularly good one. Even a cursory glance at the contents reveals several tell-tale signs that it’s a complete fraud (not including the questionable date formatting). For instance, why would the band’s P.O. Box address be blacked out? It would appear that the perpetrators of the hoax were attempting to make the letter appear more authentic by adding this little touch, but, as it was completely unnecessary to do so, it only betrays it being a genuine 'document.' Also, I don’t think anyone in the band would add an ‘n’ to the ‘Enochian’ word “Aldaraia!”

Remember that sheet of paper??? That had the addresses blacked out! It was NO coincidence that it was EXACTLY the same as the card that was "given".. and that they came from two COMPLETELY different sources... at the SAME FUCKING TIME.

Oh shit wait a minute. Now I know for a fact something is up with Aldaraia. I wasn't aware that "maynard" actually posted the original thread about Aldaraia:

http://www.smnnews.com/board/showthread.php?t=107723

Now he HAS to be in on it. No other way, not after what he said about Kayenth. You don't make up a word like Kayenth that has so much meaning.

Now, if he knew what he was talking about, he would CERTAINLY not say he made up the word Kayenth. Which leads to 2 conclusions: Either a friend of "maynard" made up the track list for him and he posted it as his own creation (with a little side story involving danny), or he's very close to the band and the band asked him to help them with this big hoax and to post the Aldaraia trax.

As for the pictures disappearing, perhaps it was a bandwidth issue, they were high-quality, who knows

Lastly, he made a point of mentioning a picture of a CD that had been pressed yet then mentions that nothing has leaked yet...Why would you even consider the picture of this CD to be the new TOOL album

So really, i found nothing convincing in the post at all, sorry

None of these theories in this thread are true. The reason is not like Ocelott199 wants to make you believe. It isn't that "Flipmojo wants everyone to believe he is rigth and everyone is wrong." That is retarded. The reason is because all the sources that are legitimate (with any credibility) are saying the album is 10,000 Days. That includes the band's own website. All of these fake theories come from random forums on the web. Is that really the place where authentic news will come from? Seriously, ask yourself that. The answer is 'No'. Those are places for rumors and fake theories.

One more time: The album is 10,000 Days. It isn't because Flipmojo says so. It is because the band says it is.

Note to Ocelott199: Everything is not me, me, me OR you, you, you in life. You have alot of maturing to do I guess. You need to be able to see things as "THIS" or "THAT". Get over yoruself. You will feel better. I promise.

Blair wont answer, so I say its a T simply because UHORN means shit whereas THORN means a HELL of a lot.


For fucks sake, its a PROMO pic... Adam wouldnt just leave some worhtless scribbling on his hand in pictures that are designed to PROMOTE the band.. thats just unprofessional. Now if you can show me how UHORN ties in with the band somehow LEGITIMATELY, Ill believe you.

Now, I'm not saying I believe this in any way, but I gotta hand it to you, Ocelot, this is the best fucking thread I've read since this section of the forum started. Great stuff.
I hope you're right, not because I like this title/tracklist better than the Ten Thousand Days one (they're both rubbish), but because if you are, you will be king of this forum.
I don't think Tool doing this is that cool (it's expected of them), but a bunch of forum nerds blowing the whole thing out of the water? That's brilliant.
Anyway, I advise the flamers (haha) to stop flaming - unlike all the other bullshit speculative threads on here, Ocelot and company actually did some thinking. Is there really another thread on this forum more worthy of your time? Really?

On a final note, I remember in one of those email exchanges to Blair, a TDNer asked Blair what he thought about the fake tracklistings, and Blair replied that one of them was eerily close to the real thing. You can either take that at face value, or as a sly admission of guilt.
