Mastodon - Colony of Birchmen (Music Video)

Another music video for you guys this (very early) morning. A great band and another favorite of mine is Mastodon! "Mastodon is an American metal band from Atlanta, Georgia, formed in 1999. [They have expanded] their musical borders from early raw sludge riffs to later psychedelic multi-layered songs, yet maintaining progressive style with unusual time signatures and odd instrumentation."
"[This] is Mastodon's first single to reach the Hot Mainstream Rock Tracks chart, reaching #33. It was also nominated for a Grammy for "Best Metal Performance", but lost to Slayer's Eyes of the Insane (a great band to lose to though, Slayer is legendary)."

"The song's title is a homage to the Genesis song The Colony of Slippermen."
Colony of Birchmen:



See you guys later! What are some of your favorite bands? I am interested in expanding my Trance (and Metal too, but don't need as much help with that) knowledge so please share what you have and like. Let me know in the comments. Thanks!

I saw Mastodon when they co-headlined with Dethklok. I love their music, but I have to say that they didn't seem very in to it....Which was VERY disappointing seeing how they were performing in their home state.

Loved the rifts but disliked the singer. Cool nonetheless.

Haven't listened to Mastodon very much, but some friends of mine are great fans of it.

Also, you could've warned that you are changing your blog url address, already thought you deleted it. :(

Charles said...

@akrater, I know I should have but it was a long dreadful process, changing the code and links on various other sites and I jumped the gun. I figured most people would still be routed to the right place, but I was wrong. I will let people know of changes like that ahead of time from now on!

Thanks for all the comments everyone.
