Notes: I was hoping the band would've busted out a few random songs in reference to the date of this performance; June 6, 2006 (6-6-6). Cover a Slayer tune? What about -even worse- a Trace Adkins song? Or ABBA. Or at least dedicate the set to Satan. I mean, come on.
Notes / Taper: Fixed skip at start of 46&2, split tracks, switched left and right channels and added fades. Ran with blind levels, so was lucky to get a recording. The levels are a little hot at times and there are a few patches of mild distortion. Fixed a skip present at the start of 46 & 2, present on master and there may be another couple of drop outs due to people and security pushing past. - The sound at the Sporthalle was shit. It sounded terrible fos, to my friends listening by the board and everyone I've heard from at the gig. It was extremely smoky, hence Maynard's comments. I remember at one point all five people standing by fos lighting up simultaneously. The vocals sound a little muffled or distorted in the last couple of songs as Maynard was holding a towel up to his face.
Notes / Galen: Overall this is a fine recording. The nuances & detail that is so clear in Source A is a bit lacking in this source; not that this is a bad recording, it is good, but no one will get those two sources mixed-up. There is a bit of microphone movement & phasing throughout. There are a few instances of clipping as the levels were ran very hot. The plus side is that the overall sound of this is a "stack" sound that is reminiscent in many of the 2001/2002 recordings. Vocals are relatively clear with clear distinction between instruments. All in all, a good taping job of a good performance by Tool.
Maynardism: "Hello Germans."
Maynardism: "Damn glad to meet you. Some of you again."
