What happens when you take a musical legend like Maynard James Keenan and have his music reworked by other musical legends, like Palms (Isis members and Chino Moreno)? Actually, this could go two ways: you could end up with a piece of crap resulting from too many egos or you could get what we’ve got with Palms’ remix of Puscifer’s “The Weaver” — which is nothing short of amazing.

Palms’ “The Weaver” will worm its way into your brain and high jack its pleasure center. The track is powerfully ethereal and ambient, and its currently streaming at noisey.vice.com.

Before or after streaming the Palms re-mix, check out the original Puscifer track:

Maynard James Keenan commented on All Re-Mixed Up, the track-for-track re-mixing of 2011’s Conditions of My Parole:

All Re-Mixed Up is the continuation of the Puscifer tradition to release alternate versions, reworks, and remixes of what we consider initial thoughts. For instance, Carina Round was nervous about how to approach her version of ‘Telling Ghosts.’ Mat Mitchell put her at ease by asking her to think of it as a song half written, advising her to ‘now write the other half.’ It’s extremely liberating in the digital age to approach composing and creating in this manner. Infinite paths to explore, reinterpret, and re-present.”

All Re-Mixed Up comes on the heels of an incredibly busy period for the electro-rock outfit. The band recently released the seven-song EP Donkey Punch The Night, which features covers of Queen’s “Bohemian Rhapsody” (seen below) and Accept’s “Balls To The Wall,” as well as new songs “Breathe” and “Dear Brother.”
