My Top 10 Favorite Mastodon Songs

in music •  last year

Again with one of these My Top 10 Favorite posts, I prefer to let the music do the talking in my place. I don't consider myself a music critic and I haven't listened to today's band entire musical career, so I can't provide you with a full review of their material.

Suffice to say that I'm a fan and that Mastodon's music is often described as heavy metal with a touch of progressive. They have also been given at times the sludge label.

My perception of how is their sound, in general, ​could be sum up in one word: raw. If you don't like a single word as a description​ you can repeat it a couple of times and you get the whole picture: raw-raw-raw.

But, rest assured, they are quite melodic, else I wouldn't like what they do.

Their videos are unique in that they are trippy and often tell a story. I feel these vids have their own Mastodon signature. They touch on the themes of sci-fi, esoterism, knights & magic... or if you prefer all of the weird stuff dreams are made of.


Enjoy (aurally and visually)!
