I'm really not too keen on the golden lettering. Seems kind of cheesy to me, like a 90s video game package design.

@ziggy23 That photo is amazing, great job if you did it.

At least we had a fun day with a few laughs on this thread.I do like history, be it medieval or ancient, it seems the album has a history related theme which i’m ok with.

Did anyone like that Chöd logo more than this new one?
I thought the Chöd logo was clever. I liked the design. I think the real one has a lot more thought put into it though.

Am I only the only one who thought Medieval/Game Of Thrones font before Egyptian?

This what I think of when I think Egyptian font:

Or this:

But supposedly it's a Crowley thing

My eyes went to the structure more so than the font. The structure being a three dimensional brass skeleton key or similar “tool”. I wonder if the logo is a raised adornment on the packaging.

I think it looks arabian, Egyptian, Steampunk, Medieval, at least. My first thought was that it looked like a design on an entry gate.

Here is a version I brightened way more. There are a few more "letters" at the end I didnt see before. Also looks lower case possibly? Image
I see;

B 1 8 O C W XorU

the last two letters seem shaded to make them less legible. I would guess jumbled up also or maybe upside down.

Given them saying MMXIX earlier could be a different date B.C?

the mirrored images combined together was kind of cool. someone pushed that together more and it looks more like COD. the fish posters! adam must have pet fish now or something ;)

there is an eyeball in the centre though which seems like something. looks a little too much like the APC logo but f'd if i know. heads spinning reading all this.

It clearly says CD with the fish in the middle. The text is new-age hieroglyphics, the Art lately has been evocative of imperial Rome (the Adi Granov Roman bust with skeleton was a replica of a bronze of Hadrian found at a Roman military archaeological site in Israel), invincible mentions Caligula. They are clearly evoking the collapse of empire (Egyptian, Roman, British, American) with the Art and I expect the themes to evoke imperial ruin once the album is released.

Also you can see the lettering in the animated version too. The lettering starts out together then spreads out as the animation runs.

Looks like Chöd could actually be the title. Not so bad really. According to Wikipedia it means "Cutting Through the Ego."

Not sure if anyone mentioned that besides it being a Buddhist practice. It does go pretty well with everything Tool stands for, but at the same time I don't see Tool naming their album something that is strictly Buddhist.

This all could be a really great joke on us, or it is in fact Chöd; either way, I am ok with it.

I thought the new logo would inspire some spiritual awakening in you children.

If it is Chöd then the chod/chode interplay is part of the fun and certainly not without precedent.

Yeah it seems a band with a phallic wrench as their first logo would be expected to do something like name their album Chöd.

agreed, i dont think they would directly take a buddhist term and use it like that either. i dont think ''chods'' the name, its fun trying to look into things but im sure a lot of it is just wrong.

one thing though, the Doop thing people are seeing is actually the name of an Enochian angle. coincedence ? maybe. Doop: A minor angel ruled by Cbalpt Arbiz. or have i been duped!

An obtuse or acute angle? I’m privy for right ones, myself.

I think Chöd has been officially debunked:

The logo is NOT the same

The title appears to be hidden in the Facebook cover photo version of the new logo, which definitely is not Chöd

Either way, I think Chöd will become a part of Tool lore. Well done to the troll that came up with the idea.
