Check The Mars Volta wikipedia page. I find it hilarious that someone outright lied with a fake Omar quote saying "Fans have no real need to worry. The Mars Volta will be back on its feet and recording new material come next fall. We just needed a break after 10 years of non-stop Volta related work." This was a supposed quote from this interview lol.

Losers who are still in denial. It doesn't matter if TMV never release anything new again, Omar will continue to make good music under whatever band name he chooses. As others have said, TMV was was basically just Omar anyway, he wrote almost everything.

olwut? Most people on the Coma agree that Xeno is sublime. The interweaving of Omar and Ximena's voices into one godly, androgynous whole was fucking beautiful. Teri is more debatable, but the vocal work on Xeno is on par if not beyond TMV-stuff (in my opinion – and the opinion of others).

It's all highly subjective, anyway, but I don't get why you put Cedric on this pedestal. Even he has admitted in interviews that he wasn't happy with a lot of his vocal takes but he put his trust and Omar and let him work his studio wizardry. So, alot of the "brilliance" is probably due to Omar– tweaking the reverb and delay effects, fine-tuning the pitch in Melodyne, etc.

TMV = Omar and Cedric, no doubt, but Omar is basically the source where all this stuff comes from.


Exactly! Finaly someone with the ability to put all fanboyism aside....

Free Moral Agents on twitter:

The process isn't the point. The music is the fucking point! No one puts on a record and listens to the process.


...someone who has not understand what Omar means. If you make art for OTHER people, than this statement maybe is true. But Omar never makes art for other people. Its always his way to find and express themself...

So fucking annoying this tweet....

Xenophanes is average

cum @ m3

But really, I agree with the dude who says it gets repetitive and boring, especially vocally. I find it difficult to enjoy listening to

More power to Omar if he enjoys and loves what he's doing but I'm sadly not enjoying his recent releases and Bosnian Rainbows live stuff. Wish I could.

Please don't flame me either... I'm not trying to pass my opinions off on others. Just sharing how I feel. Omar and Cedric have been my favorite musicians for years and I have always embraced the choices they made, but this just feels different.

Can't explain why but I feel like "new ATDI" will be the nail in the coffin.


I feel you. I think TMV is done at least for now. I am also not into BR. It may just be Teri who I'm not a big fan of. I totally get the something not right feeling. I dunno I am pretty bummed this is like when ATDI broke up all over again. Id love to hear from Ced or Juan but doubt we will.

I have to disagree to an extent, Adrian Juan Ikey, etc all contributed their talent. It is awesome because they are all kick ass.

What the fuck kind of person would go on ikeys twitter just to bother him? Oh yeah, coma trolls. Also, you're bashing him when he's right about what he's saying.


And why are people freaking out just because theres a few month break between any TMV tour/studio work? The Mars Volta is not done touring(2013) however a studio album next year isn't looking likely with all they have going on. And for all those OMAR=TMV people, watch videos of each era...With Theodore, Pridgen, Adrian, Elitch, Etc. and tell me it's not a huge difference which musicians omar is surrounded by.

No one attacked Ikey. People simply asked him if he was speaking about Omar.

And there's no 2013 TMV tour, buddy. That's where this whole nasty rumor started, when somebody said "The Mars Volta is over" and they meant the TOUR is over. It was clarified. That's what they meant.

There is no tour. They're on a break, and nobody knows (not even Omar or Cedric) if they'll get back together. They'll know when the time comes.
