They've certainly been doing some blatent borrowing of late. Compare the start of "Home" with the start of "46&2" by Tool, and the subsequent distorted wah riff with about half of RATM's "Evil Empire" album. Also the unison motif in "The Test that Stumped Them All" with "By Demons Be Driven" by Pantera.
