Tool - Lateralus (2001)

Lateralus is the third studio album by American progressive metal band Tool. The album was released on May 15, 2001, and debuted at number one on the Billboard 200 chart. As with Ænima and Undertow, the album is replete with time signature changes. Drummer Danny Carey sampled himself breathing through a tube to simulate the chanting of Buddhist monks for "Parabol", and banged piano strings for samples on "Reflection". "Faaip de Oiad" is Enochian for The Voice of God. "Disposition", "Reflection", and "Triad" form a sequence that has been performed in succession live with occasional help from various tourmates such as Mike Patton, Buzz Osborne, Tricky, and members of Isis, Meshuggah, and King Crimson. The title track, "Lateralus", incorporates the Fibonacci sequence. "Eon Blue Apocalypse" is about Adam Jones' Great Dane named Eon, who had died from bone cancer, while "The Grudge" references the classic novel The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorne. The track "Mantra" is the slowed-down sound of Maynard James Keenan gently squeezing one of his cats. - Wikipedia
