I still think Merkaba is only a few seconds and not the complete song.
It really is quite a stretch calling it that, if not outright inaccurate. It's not on the setlists that way, and honestly sounds nothing like Merkaba other than Danny occasionally using some of the vocal samples.

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

Wasn't the whole thing of course, but the 8+ minutes of footage I watched, while far from "perfect," was not even close to what I'd describe as a "mess." Sounded pretty fucking amazing actually.

Re: New Album Touring (with SPOILERS!)

NOLA was fucking unreal. I'll echo what pretty much most of the others have said, in that they're absolutely better and tighter than I've ever seen them. I'd tie that show with a few others for best performance I've ever seen them deliver. Lighting and stage elements are 100% off the charts and bett...

Re: Random Tool Social Media thread

It's also VERY much worth noting that categories like the one Tool is in are dumped into the afternoon ceremony when almost no one is there. Granted with the internet now, they still get the acceptance videos floating around and all, and it's STILL a prestigious award to be proud of. But I wouldn't ...

Wait a second. It’s the same setlist as last leg? Are you surprised by this outcome? I'm fucking ecstatic about it. I couldn't go to the last leg and am dying to see either version of this current set. So happy they didn't change anything or that much. AM happy that Junior and co (or whoever made t...

If they're going to throw in Tempest, I'd prefer they cut Vicarious and the "old song" slot to make room. Don't cut any other FI tracks.

Joyce Su is going to be selling Merch/tour poster prints. Just a heads up.
Thanks for the heads up. Where can we keep an eye out for these?

This is her site, but her instagram would be the best way to be notified:

They're probably still waiting for their order from the Toolband website. :lol:
For real though, wouldn't surprise me if the issue wasn't related to not being able to get copies in the hands of many (or any?) voters.

Re: The Grudge (WARNING: It Hapenned!!)

That run was a low point for them, and I'd be surprised if they didn't agree. They were "changing" the setlist only but cutting more and more songs, and that's when Maynard began a habit of skipping chunks of songs every night (see: Vicarious). Also just seemed not into it whatsoever. Rosetta Stoned...

I can in some way understand the griping. Everyone has their cherry picked things they'd really like to hear.
