Man this is gonna destroy the vogue! I know at least a hundred ppl that are going to be at this show. This tour will probably sell out on all venues. Mastodon and Baroness are so fukking good! Man i the vogue gets hip and realizes they need to book more of these shows every time there is a punk/metal/industrial show there its heavily attended but for some odd reason they still want to book bullsh** like bassnectar or bela fleck i dont get that i know jam/funk scene is big in indy but not as big as the metal/hardcore/punk/goth scene here. This show will be a testament to my statement.

Sounds like a great show! I really like Valient Thorr lately even tho they're a little on the 'country' side of metal, I like their lyrics and they seem like cool people.

#21, I don't like their vocals at all...for a lot of people this is what throws them off from Mastodon. Aside from the vocal delivery, those guys can play. Simply amazing talent. Having said that, their topics/lyrics are awesome too. Just don't like how they sound vocally.

esoteric: u've done it again. i wouldda agreed 100% with u a couples of months ago, but as i listened to mastodon more and more kuz i respected the hell outta their f***ing amazing playing, the vox grew on me. i'll admit, they're still NOT THAT great, but now listenable imo. what rlly made me get into them more was that SOME songs' choruses were catchy like "oblivion" and "divinations".

#27, lol yeah it's growing on me too. At first I was pretty p***ed off at how the vocals sounded compared to the amazing talent the rest of the band was portraying but now I almost wouldn't have them any other way. Kinda weird how that happens.
