This maybe is wrong place to say this but DT's merch have been really poor and uninteresting after MP left. They should see what for example Animals as Leaders, Periphery and Haken sell for fans.

Just curious because I don't know - what are those bands doing better in terms of merch? Different types of merch or just stuff you like better?

The band were given HINTS of what it could be over their social media, maybe it has to do with the hunt maybe not, I would use the numbers in the picture as some kind of password though 001/200, who knows, the Jacobi guy said to be alert of social media

I almost feel like anything is fair game with DT's social media, so while the answer isn't know, it shouldn't be discarded IMO

If you had told me 3-4 years ago that we would be questioning whether a social media post has anything to do with a treasure hunt leading up to a new album, I would have said we were crazy.

They've really amped up my excitement level for the album with the interactivity. Kinda makes me think this would have been a fun way to unveil details leading up to The Astonishing, like a mystery thing. Actually, when we had to sign up by choosing a side (GNEA or Ravenskill), I thought we were going to be doing something similar to what we're doing now.

6:00 on a Christmas morning. I’d say it’s good reasoning.
It sounds like, "ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk, ruk." Instead of the more pleasing kick drum sound of, "gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk, gzarruk."

I noticed that 159-65 = 94, which is the year Awake was released... I wonder if it means anything  ???

Of course it does. According to the given sequence, with the titles of each new "step" linked to the studio albums chronologically arranged, Awake is the next one. Maybe the "94" is a piece of the next password. Who knows? Let the Sherlocks out there figure it out :metal

I noticed that 159 and 65 are both permutations of sections of the Vail Renovations phone number, i.e. (518) 519-0756. That could be part of they key to decode the next password.

Maybe he'll give another 2 digits and it will form a new phone number... I guess it's possible since the first 3 digits came together (and kinda fits the format of an area code).

It's possible, but 159 couldn't be the area code.  I did take the phone number we currently have and replaced the numbers with the new ones from the tweets and came away with: redacted.  I don't think it's anything, but I figured I'd at least document that here.

Maybe someone should try to call this number: (518) 159-6585.

I took the original area code and used the new numbers as the number itself.

Worth a shot I guess..

I called that number and got the "your call cannot be completed as dialed" message (not surprising since North American phone numbers can only begin with numbers between 2-9).

I reversed the number and called and got a simple voice mail message that said, "Hello, please leave a message after the tone."

DT has just black basic t-shirts with really unintrested images printed on them. Those band I mentioned sell different color shirts, more fitted shirts and those band shirts even doesn't look like band shirt at times, it's more like a brand. I like it better, I know that there are people who like to have a shirt with just an album cover on it but I don't.

We have a 4th number. I like the idea that this could be an ip address (159.65.85.240). It appears to be Google if you put that in a browser, but actually it's serving a page that redirects to google with a meta tag:

The last line is the response body. Also note that according to the last-modified header, this page was modified today, shortly before Freddy's last tweet.

If we do a reverse DNS lookup on that ip address, we find that it points to hammern.com.

Code: [Select]
(16:14) bfoster:~$ dig +short -x 159.65.85.240
hammern.com.

I'm not sure what to make of that.

The whois for hammern.com doesn't have any interesting except this:

Registrant State/Province: Buskerud

Which is in Norway as I understand it.  Probably nothing.

Also, the IP is in the UK.

What if it's something that's not connected to my hunt at all? That's my point. Be careful with what information you guys are spreading around, as it may not be connected to the game. That's what I mean by innocent bystanders. Say you got a treasure map, and you read it wrong. You started digging in the yard of some old bloke, and before you know it, his entire yard is just a bunch of holes. Poor bloke knew nothing of what hit him.

But having a treasure hunt with so much cryptic information with fake websites, who knows what is off limits and what is not.

One guy blows the whole thing up, and now there's something personal involved. I mean, I don't mean to sound like "that guy", but this is inviting it, frankly. DT fans are very smart and will figure it out. But like MP and the SOA member reveals, don't tease it and then get upset that the mystery was solved.
would have thought the same thing but seeing the OP was TAC i immediately thought Maiden or DT related
Winger Theater Forums........or WTF.  ;D
TAC got a higher score than me in the electronic round? Honestly, can I just drop out now? :lol
