LATEST UPDATE 3/31 - Mastodon - Emperor of Sand Anniversary 6 pack

2q11Mko.jpg
Video Preview

 

GUITAR: MackeeGH

BASS: PhantomBlade8

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

Precious Stones takes a different tack than the first two, bringing in that signature Mastodon sludgy-prog sound. Hinds leads the vocals this time, with some gorgeous harmonies coming in for the chorus. Lots of key and rhythm changes keep you on your toes.

GUITAR/BASS: spiralshadow123

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

A somewhat psychedelic intro gives way into an intense burst of crunchy sound. Sanders has verse duty this time, with Dailor soaring over lush guitar during the slower but equally intense chorus. This song just doesn’t let up, even during the spacey bridge. The outro features creepy spoken words and a long, soulful guitar solo, fading to echoey piano notes. There’s a lot going on in this track, and all of it good.

GUITAR: MackeeGH

BASS: PhantomBlade8

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

Clandestiny starts off heavy with one of my favorite riffs of the entire album. It stays pretty heavy, with one spacey, synthy interlude punctuating the affair halfway through. Sanders and Hinds tackle this song’s vocals, again featuring beautiful harmony on the chorus. This album has, I think, the best vocals of Mastodon’s discography in terms of composition. Clandestiny is the most emotional of the songs thus far.

GUITARUngrateful Dead

BASS: PhantomBlade8

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

I find Andromeda to be the most “throwback” of the album. It combines the discordance and intensity of Leviathan and Blood Mountain with the prog influence and spacey vocal sounds of Crack the Skye. Old-school Mastodon fans will probably find this their favorite, but it’s got enough going on to stand on its own merit for fans old and new.

GUITAR/BASS: PhantomBlade8

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 

Scorpion Breath is one of the best songs on the album. Brann Dailor is finally unleashed, hitting a million drums a minute. Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and Sanders combine to create a masterpiece of vocal intensity. You want heavy? You’ve got heavy, with a brutal riff after wrenching scream of visceral auditory assault. The outro in particular will give you neck problems. This is fully operational Mastodon.

GUITAR/BASS: PhantomBlade8

VOCALS: EchoOfMystery

 
Jaguar God is the most diverse in sound and tempo, with a slow, vocal-heavy intro giving way to a moderately-paced and mysterious miasma of melody before accelerating to breakneck speed to close things out. Jaguar God deals with the album’s lyrical inspiration most directly: the feelings of fear and loss when confronting a loved one’s diagnosis of cancer.

Thanks to Chainsaw Octopus every song in the Mastodon Rockband project has a playthrough video. The new ones going from July of last year through the latest releases were recorded on a PC so the venues are not representative of the RB3 versions but you can see how hard you are going to fail on expert guitar ;)

Less than 24 hours before Alpacalyptic April begins. If you think waiting is scary, if it's more than you can take

Just blow out the __________ and have a piece of _________!

LATEST UPDATE 4/5 - Alpocalyptic April Day 1 - Happy Birthday!

GUITAR/BASS: Seil

KEYS: Cheesecake Militia

VOCALS: Oddbrother

PREVIEW VIDEO: MrPrezident

 

Today is my birthday and I could think of no better song to open another epic marathon month. "Happy Birthday" is a very fast and furious original that is not only catchy, but hard rockin as well. According to Al himself: The reason I wrote the song was because everyone in the world for birthdays would either go with the—who is it, the Hill Sisters who own the rights to the original song? Everybody has to license that “Happy Birthday” song in the movies, anywhere they sing “Happy Birthday,” and the only other option at the time was The Beatles’ “Birthday,” and I thought there should be more “happy birthday” songs than that, and I decided to write my own severely twisted version of one.
