Tool are on the ticket but it was Whipping Boy who played the gig.

I don't have the poster but it was Feile 94 they played

07.30.94 - Tipperary, Ireland @ Feile Festival

It's amazing how I know so few of these bands, and that Dustin and Ray D'Arcy are listed as 'Guest DJ's' (shudder...)

Would love a new Tool album, and tour sometime in the near future. Seen them play a few times before, and they are amazing. Been listening to them and APC a lot lately. Not much of a Puscifer fan myself!

I hope it's not gonna be a case of diminishing returns, as 10,000 Days was. 4-5 actual tracks amongst a heap of noise art. Which would fine, but then you take into account how long they took between Lateralus and 10,000, I hoped for more.
As for the instrumental thing, Tool wouldn't be Tool without MJK's lyrics and vocal. They'd just be another, admittedly excellent, instrumental metal band. We've got enough of them!

I thought 10, 000 days was excellent, lots of ambient interludes but they were there before in their other albums. Yeah, not as good as the others though, well I listen to it more than most of undertow.

it took me a while to grow to 10,000 days but now it has several of my favourite tool songs, 10,000 days itself (including wings for marie), vicarious, rosetta stoned. Right in two I keep forgetting is on 10,000 days, for some reason it really strikes me as a lateralus song.

Don't get me wrong, I like the album and love some of the songs off it. I'm well aware that the albums interludes are something Tool have done since Aenima, and done to excellent effect with Laterlus. But with 10,000 Days, the split between them went from 80/20 to 60/40, at least it felt like that was the case to me. As a listener, I prefer to take albums as a whole and always give it a chance to connect. But I never reach for 10,000 Days like I do Lateralus or Aenima, apart from maybe Vicarious, Jambi, Right In Two, The Pot maybe Intension. I know I go against the grain here, but I'm really not a fan of Wings For Marie *ducks whilst abuse is hurled!

Haha! That always annoyed me about the toolband site. You go to there trying to get the lowdown on album news etc., and the guy's mentioning all these people who were at a bar-b-q at the weekend, and you're wondering who the hell there people are!

With all the 10,000 days talk, anyone ever hear this?

I've never put much faith in the whole "line up a few songs to get a hidden message" thing that follows tool around, but they do hide stuff in their songs:

The guy "banging on the door telling you to turn it down" in the last chorus of sober.

Maynard saying "suck my dick" in portugeuse in the middle section of stinkfist

The "stay in school" backwards vocals of intension.

there are also very hard to hear whispers in ticks and leeches on lateralus and no quarter on salival.
