The original post

Probably my favorite band of all time, and I think they need a thread. I saw them live for the first time and they were amazing. They definatly have a style of their own that is hard to compare to. What does everyone else think about these guys, discuss your thoughts.

Morbid Angel's original drummer,Mike Browning was also the vocalist before he left the band.


and he still sang in the band he started afterwards, Nocturnus.
But indee he is another singing drummer

So I conclude that "rare" wouldn't be the appropriate word, either.

You can add Absu to the list of singing drummers as well.

With bands, like Mastodon, that have more than one person sharing vocal duties, it can add a lot to the music. I especially like it with faster black metal bands when they have two or three people doing screaming vocals, not at the same time, but in sort of a back and forth rhythm.

Not as unique as it seems. Kiss in their heydays had all four bandmembers doing vocals.


That's true and a good point. And if you go back even further, you'll know that The Beatles had songs on their albums in which all four members did lead vocals. Sure, most of the vocals were done by Paul and John, but George and Ringo got a go occasionally. It seems Kiss did this as well, and from reading Gene's book, it's clear he was very heavily influenced by the success of The Beatles, as were so many bands of the 70s and onwards.

Old news, but looking forward to it. They're working with Nick Raskulinecz, so it should be interesting, as long as it doesn't turn out like the new alice in chains

I am crazy Pumped for the new Mastodon! I love them, Have been a Fan since Blood Mountain. I saw them Live With High on Fire, Converge (whom I slept on at the Time but wound up becoming one of my Favs) and Dethklok. It was amazing, they Played Crack the Skye in its entirety, Then a whole other set of Leviathan and Blood Mountain songs, Plus The Bit By Melvins and one From Remission. Mother Puncher. They are aso the Band That turned me onto Melvins, High on Fire, Isis and Neurosis. Yeah I really Love mastodon. My rankings: 1. Leviathan 2. Remission. 3. Crack The Skye. 4. Blood Mountain. 5. The Hunter.

In an ideal world, they'd go back to Leviathan/Remission style.

But we live in a non-ideal world where there's still lots of poverty, environmental degradation and conflict. Hence Mastodon release stuff that does not make my loins quiver in joy.

I want more exploding horses and big frickin whales.

I agree completely, Although I do enjoy the hunter, Crack the Skye (a total masterpiece) and def Blood Mountain. It's just that I would like to see them get all Chaotic/Abrasive again.

I only really like their stuff after Blood Mountain, I got into them from The Hunter, but I really really like their newer material. I'm really looking forward to their new album, love the riff and solo in this song.
