Mastodon @ Roseland Ballroom
Opeth

From the opening wails of "Black Tongue" (accompanied by some adorable tongue-wagging by guitarist Brent Hinds) to the soaring peaks of "Octopus Has No Friends," [Mastodon] deftly wove its way through a setlist containing most of the tracks from last year's The Hunter along with other fan favorites. An extra-flashy light setup cloaked the band in hazy neon lights, making already-epic songs like "Blasteroid" downright menacing. The extra bits of A/V magic--including a pair of glowing, flashing eyes embedded in the tapestry behind the foursome--dramatically reiterated what we all already knew: Mastodons are masters of their craft. -[CMJ]
The Mastodon/Opeth/Ghost Heritage Hunter tour breezed into NYC on Wednesday (4/11) when the bands shared a stage at Roseland Ballroom. Here are some pics and all setlists.

The tour rolls on, and the bands play the Riv in Chicago tonight while the Decibel tour (without Watain) plays across town in the same city.

I think that the singer of Opeth needs to lose the stache. He kinda looks like Weird Al Yancovich with it.

I would appreciate an extended and scathing criticism of myself because I am completely obsessed with Ghost after seeing them live. What the hell is wrong with me?

Mastodon was formed on January 13, 2000 after drummer Brann Dailor and guitarist Bill Kelliher had moved to Atlanta from Victor, New York and met bassist/singer Troy Sanders and guitarist/singer Brent Hinds at a High on Fire show.

I need to to say it is a well thought out script that truly offers value onto the people who read it
