Tool's "Lateralus" Is Literally Math Rock

Seeing the above lolz today reminded me of the Tool album Lateralus, which loosely incorporates the Fibonacci sequence as a concept, especially on the eponymous track.

I was gonna explain all the cool tie-ins to the sequence from that song, but then I found this YouTube video which does a decent job at it AND let's you listen to it, so here you go:

Pretty cool, huh?

And here you were, thinking that Tool just sang about fisting and having extra chromosomes.....

  1. Yeah Tool is way above other bands as far as their attention to detail. Shit like this is pretty eerie... IMO Tool is this generation's King Crimson. I play guitar in the loop-based math/post/prog rock band, Time Columns. The entire foundation of our sound is built on guitar and keyboard looping using the Gibson Echoplex and related loop pedals to create layers of intricate rhythms. I’m wondering if you might be interested in writing a review of our latest album release, Sunriseinthesea EP, or conducting an interview relating to our music, upcoming January tour and looping. Send me an email at and I’ll be happy to get you anything you need. Thanks in advance for your time and consideration. Once again, great post! You can download Time Columns’ EP for free at
