Then why do I like Baroness so much better? Mastodon feels kind of toothless. Baroness is less heavy on paper, but feels mystic and soulful.
Mastodon haven't released anything worthwhile since the hunter imo. Everything baroness has released is gold. it's too bad that mastodon has become a dad rock Nickelback style band with bad emo lyrics.
The Hunter fucking sucks. OMRtS and Hushed and Grim are way better (and better than anything Baroness has released)
If you say so.
Omrts is so boring. Diamond is the only good song. Hushed is quantized to hell and is a boring, bloated, bummer of a record. This band wrote Leviathan, Blood Mountain, Crack the Skye. Even grim dark place has exciting twists and turns. Red and Blue and Yellow and green are all 10/10 even purple and gold and grey are perfect records for me.
>Diamond is the only good song
You're a fucking weirdo mate, that's the worst song on the album. Your takes are bizarre.
Also, how are you forgetting Emperor of Sand? In my opinion, it was classic mastodon, and could easily replace Remission as the fire elemental themed album in their classic run.
Sultans curse is the only good song on that album. After the hunter they just got lame. None of Brents solos are interesting anymore, Brann always sings the chorus.
I should say that Halloween and Chimes at midnight are pretty good too. Love Diamond tho.
They are just a band that is unfocused. Brent doesn't want to play metal anymore and his riffs make the band for me. They don't write about cool shit like whaling or cysquatch anymore it's all about how their parents and tour manager get cancer and it's just a bummer. It's all Nickelback at best Stained at worst since omrts.
I'm only on OMRtS going through Mastodon's discography but this album is fucking great and at least twice as good as The Hunter.
Plz go listen to Aqua Dementia, Iron tusk, crystal skull, and Siberian divide. Those are my two favorite tracks off leviathan and blood mountain respectively. Then listen to Crack the Skye. Then maybe remission. I know their new stuff is super popular, I love they got a keyboardist especially the dude from the Lennon claypool delirium but it is just so safe and so boring compared to their early stuff. I know that is a trite and cliche thing to say but I feel like it's very true for mastodon but not for baroness. For me baroness only gets better. And their old shit is so great
No one is saying OMRtS is better than Leviathan and Blood Mountain. No one has ever said that.
Gold & Grey sucked
Should I go see them in Detroit?
More like Target Mastodon (Mastodon is Wal Mart Baroness).
Mastodon and Baroness are diet metal
nothing wrong with that
To expand the conversation how does /my/ feel about
Crippled black pheonix
never heard of them
respectable but never liked them
never listened enough to feel any sort of way
loved them, especially wavering radiant
never got into them but i respect what they did for the genre
Crippled black phoenix are prog/post rock, how are they similar to the others?
The guitar player was in Electric Wizard but it is a bit of a stretch. I guess I just associate that band with that scene.
Kylesa and Torche have riffs but they have women/gays in the band so they’re knocked back down to the bottom of the barrel with the others
Misc plz go
>is that...IS THAT A WOMAN MAKING MUSIC? AIEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I'M GOING INSANNNNNNNNNNNNNNEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE HELP ME HITLER
all shitty hipster shit
isis is good though, like REALLY good
What do you think of Sumac/old man gloom?
never heard of them
>old man gloom
i downloaded one of their songs on kazaa like 20 years ago when i was getting into metal and it was fucking WEIRD so i never checked them out again. aren't they like a noise side project of guys in isis/pelican?
