    Sounds pretty good. That ending sounds awesome. Sounds like the song is longer but got cutoff. Guess we'll see.

    Yeah, I liked most of it but the ending riff was the best part. It definitely sounded like that was either the lead in to another riff or was going to get repeated a bunch more to end the song.

    I'll be curious to hear the studio version, obviously - those clean vocals are AWFUL live! The screamed ones all sounded fine and the rest of the sound was pretty good for a live bootleg, but man...that is some off-key howling!

    I'm hoping for the same, I really hope its a bit farther from the Hunter. Then again when the new AAL track came out "Tooth and Claw" I was pretty unimpressed but then it turned out to be nothing at all like the album; so I guess we will see.

    Oh boy if you think those are bad live vocals, lookie here. Brent sounds like a hillbilly Cartman

    I'm pretty sure Brent had the flu and his throat was killing him before he went on stage, so he really had to battle through it. He did sound shit though. Mastodon have always been very variable in a live setting. They can crush, or they can sound like total amateurs.

    I remember hearing something similar. He looked like he was in a lot of pain.

    Going to Toronto to see them this Saturday. Hella excited since it'll be my first time seeing Mastodon and Gojira always slays.

    ^Have an awesome time man, that will be amazing. Are Kvelertak not making it to that show? I would kill to see them live, love 'em!

    Also, what songs does Bill do vocals on? I know he does them on Deathbound, but there's also a track on Remission he does, maybe not on the album but DEFINITELY live. And his live vocals are killer :hbang: ffj

    They will be, I just haven't really listened to them much. I'm definitely going for the other two since they're both in my top 3 favourite bands. :lol:

    Heard High Road on the radio on my way in. Sounded awesome through the car stereo.

    I don't believe so, but I missed the last 3ish songs of their set

    :O You missed The Sparrow? In other news, I checked out the setlist and it looks toiiight. Shame there's no Blood and Thunder. Been a dream of mine to see it live and yell that bridge section with hundreds of others.

    I saw them last Mayhem and they didn't play it then, either. Or Curl of the Burl. The opened with Black Tongue and the rest of the set were boring wankery progressive songs, rather than METAL songs. Honestly, most of the crowd was bored... and this was in Atlanta, their home town.

    Mastodon aren't a sludgy riff band anymore they're a spacey progish band.

    Mine and most of the people I talked to who were excited for Mastodon. Most everyone was very disappointed in their set
