Wow. Mastodon is amazing. I may be late to this party, but I love this band. Blood Mountain is a fantastic album, and I will be picking up Leviathan next surely. Very inspiring stuff.
PT's DVD, however, kind of sucks. It plays like a very longform video, with no indication that it is actually LIVE. It's all very pretty to look at, but extremely lifeless for that reason. Musically, it's fine, but I should want to WATCH it, and I don't. It may as well be a studio recording, which is fine and dandy, but rather boring after a while. Disappointing.
Thankfully I have other things to occupy me, not least of which is volume one of
Ultimate Sandman. Delicious!
