The original track was otherworldly to begin with. But Tool’s “Parabol” has a completely different feel when slowed down by a factor of eight. Ethereal and haunting, it’s more like a Gregorian chant than a single from a rock album. I recommend good headphones and your favorite consciousness-modifier (legal, of course).

In case you’re thinking, “This is missing something…binaural beats?” I have just the thing. Now strap on your headphones and meditate.

And if you’re one of those strange people who listens to music at normal speed, here’s the original along with some slowly shifting Alex Grey imagery.
