View Full Version : The album cover is a fake

If anyone has any Lateralus tour bootlegs just watch them. What is the backdrop on the stage? That's right, the very picture they claim to be the 10,000 days album art.

Now, why would a band like TOOL repeat themselves by using art that they have already used extensively and somewhat recently? It seems like an all too easy option for them.

Something to ponder...

btw, I was watching the Oklahoma City boot from Nov 2002.

I never saw the 'alleged' 10,000 Days covert art as a backdrop on any Lateralus-era shows...what show was this at?

god DAMNIT how many times do we have to say that it is NOT the same artwork on the Lateralus tour.

That artwork was completely different. The only similarity was the 3 faces. The artwork you're thinking about had these funky swirly colors all over it...


Just STFU and GTFO right now before it's too late.

They're pretty similar.

Yes, they are similar, but different enough. The 10,000 Days cover art is from Grey's painting called 'Net Of Being', which is actually an enormous painting...all in color. Personally, I love this painting, but I'd love to see the 10,000 Days cover use this photo is it's original all-color format. I'm thinking that they might actually use the color version of the cover, and there will be a darkened CD slip-cover over it...like there was for Lateralus.

The colorful backdrop from the Lateralus shows is the actual Alex Grey painting called 'InterBeing'

Well done!

Also, has anyone else noticed that in one of the pages of the Lateralus album booklet there's the word "GOD" spelt out in the guy's brain...?


Seriously dude, there's over 11,000 people who have registered here, on average lately there's been at least 100 people viewing these forums at any one time and the album artwork came out weeks ago. Even if you didn't search, logic should tell you that it may have already been discussed...

For what it's worth, I actually like the new artwork - I think it would look good on an album cover all by itself. Plus, the band could do some weird things with it visually during their live shows etc.

Why is everyone being mean to the guy just because he is new? Every one of you was new at one point. So he didnt do his research, bid deal!! You could have simply said that this has already been talked about. There is no reason to make fun of him. Its just pathetic.

What relavence does that have to anything? I also disagree. I'd be willing to bet that most people in these forums have been Tool fans for a very long time. I was going to be nice and not say anything about your stupid ass post, but then you crossed the line.

No titles just a guy with sticks on his back... Or no... even better all white... or plain cardboard... hmm or maybe wrapped in brown parcel paper.. or shit, just () or hmm maybe a hotel with an opening flap.. or all black.. or a naked lady hichhiking.. or a guitar spaceship.. or naked siamese twins with blazing hair.. or a guy on a motorcycle leaving hell.. or a Nazgul on a horse... or a baby in a pool chasing money.. or a prism... or a cow skull.. or an electric chair. Any of those would work too.

i would sincerely like it if they just had a black cover with a little white dot in the middle just to screw with all their weird-ass fans (me included)

on topic though

did you ever consider that the part weve seen of the "cover" is only part of the entire work that will make up the album art?

considering that, could their usage of a part of their tour backdrop be a continuation, or evolution of sorts, from their lateralus mindset to the new mindset?...not just a condemnation of the art as "fake"

Though this idea has been bled to death, the kid's got a point. TOOL HAS SAID 10,000 TIMES THAT THIS IS NOT LATERALUS TWO, FUCKING SHITTY ALBUM COVER, LOGO, NAME, TRACK LISTING, FUCK TOOL
