Riff of the Day 09/05/15 Mastodon – Blood and Thunder

Mastodon – Blood and Thunder (from the album Leviathan, Relapse 2004) One of my all time favorite bands, which I have seen live five times. Blood and Thunder is exactly that; a storm of guitar, drums, and signature Mastodon vocals. The album Leviathan is a “concept” album, based on Herman Melville‘s literary classic Moby Dick (I’ve even read it!).  I absolutely love this album, as it was my introduction to Mastodon. Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher are amazing guitar players, and make a formidable team. The video is pretty kick-ass as well.

Cool FactRolling Stone magazine stated: “Mastodon are the greatest metal band of their generation — no one else comes close.”

Pretty accurate assessment if you ask me!
