Mastodon
« on: Sep 13, 2006, 06:27 PM »
This band deserves a proper good thread (did a search, couldnt find a proper good one) because they are fucking immense! 'Blood Mountain' is probably one of the best new albums I've heard in a very long time (well since Leviathan and Panopticon). Personally for me, I would say they are the mother fucking gods of modern day heavy metal, fuck Trivium and all those other bands, they dont know what the hell they're doing compared to this lot. So yeah, just wondering what the general opinion of them is here?

(Just noticed as well, in the recent email from the Deftones mailing list, they mention something about a Mastodon e-card and how they 'respect them' and all that. It's always cool to find that one of your favourite bands digs another of your favourite bands heh).

I like them. I am still waiting for someone to upload Blood Mountain, although Ive already heard it on their myspace page when they had it posted. Im also a big QOTSA fan so it was tight to hear that track with Josh Homme.

I can't wait to hear Blood Mountain. Mastodon really is a great modern day metal band. Do any of you have live vids of them?

Dont have any live videos myself, but did a wee search on you tube and came up with a few pretty cool vids

Blood & Thunder (check the title though, what an eejit): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8fG2noRLgYA


Seriously though, the more I listen to Blood Mountain, the more I think it's a masterpiece, could even be their best yet, even better than Leviathan, and that's saying something. I would upload it but I dont have the time to do that just now. And the song with Josh Homme is pretty damn cool yeah! He also speaks on a secret track at the end, being the typical fool that he is haha! :D

I had the chance to see them live at a festival last year but for some reason I didn't do that. I guess I had a few more beers instead.

but I regret that, considering they're awesome.
pray nightfall release me
then i could wander, wander to deep sleep

Mastodon was definitely one of the best live shows I've ever been to, the energy between the band and the crowd was immense! If you get a chance to see them again, take it man! I cant wait until they come back here. Apparently after they finish the tour with Converge and The Bronx, they're doing a few dates in Japan and then taking a month break (as Bill has got a baby on the way) before doing a long European tour. Cant wait!

Yeah Brann Dailor is definitely one of the most impressive drummers out there that's for sure!

Amon Amarth is tight, when I listen to them I think of vikings going to war.

Mastodon are great. I'm not really into their genre of music, but these guys kick.

See that's what's good about Mastodon, they have a little bit of everything. Traditional rock/metal, Thrash metal, hardcore, metalcore, progressive metal, psychadelia. It's quite hard to just pin them down to one genre, and that's really refreshing, especially in the modern metal world.

Leviathan is just as if not more worth getting than Blood Mountain! All their album releases up to now have been downright amazing in my eyes!
