From the same Pat’s Garage Mix as the riotous Happy Nouveau Metal. We think the session dates from the making of The Power To Believe. What a belter this was, is, and might-have-been. Quite why this idea was never worked up into something more complete we’ll never know. As it is though there’s plenty to enjoy - thundering drums, Trey channeling his inner Levin, and some weird-shit soloing that makes you sit up and say “what did they just do back there?” We love the bit at the very end where Robert asks to listen back to it “if only to draw breath!” We know the feeling!

missing link back to projecKts
this is the missing link back to the projecKts - and proably was not included exactly for that reason. no, there is no melody but it’s thundering rhythm is consistent and the walking bass indeed reminds of TCOL! i love it and definitely should have been on the album!!

The one missing
I agree, this should have been included with Power to believe which for me is a bit to sterile and polished. Perhaps the 30th anniversary version of that album available in HD hologramic 32 bit / 192 KHz sampling in 2033 will include these kind of sessions. But where is the melody ?

This would’ve been the best thing on TPTB. And it does sound like Levin indeed.
