Anybody want me to review some albums? I can review any albums from Tool, Metallica, Megadeth, Slayer, Pink Floyd, or Nirvana. You can suggest other bands but my knowledge will be a little limited on those.

Here it is, it's a long review so I'll have to split it into a few comments.

1._ The Wolf is Loose_ – Fast paced, love the drum solo at the beginning. Lyrics are so-so. Brann Dailor’s drumming astonishing as always.7.5/10.
2._ Crystal Skull_ – I love the way this song kicks off, all tribal-like, then smashing right into the heavy guitar riff. The guitar solo in this song is also a great aspect, as well as the harmonizing guitars bringing the song to an end. Solid song. 8.5/10.
3. Sleeping Giant – I was very impressed with this song, the intro is beautiful, as well as the interludes. I just feel like the vocals during the verses do not fit correctly, but otherwise a fantastic song. 9/10.
4. Capillarian Crest – I enjoyed the guitar riffs in this song. The best part, however, was the crazy tempo changing. This song changes tempo so often it’s like a thrill ride. Easily one of the most intense songs on the album. 9.5/10.
5. Circle of Cysquatch – Opening riff catches attention, especially when the drums come in. Nothing too special until the breakdown, which was so heavy I almost pooped myself. 8/10.
6. Bladecatcher – This song is an amazing instrumental, and it would get a perfect ten if it weren’t for all the stupid robotic mumbling garbage at certain points. Kinda destroys the song a little. 9/10.

7. Colony of Birchmen – Seems a bit repetitive, and too drawn out. Not a bad song, but nothing really impresses me about it, besides the solo at the end, that was pretty damn cool. 7/10.
8. Hunters of the Sky – This song to me is near flawless, and definitely one of my favorites of the album, and I kinda feel like playing Skyrim when I get done listening to it. 9.5/10.
9. Hand of Stone – Some of the guitars in the song are good, but other than that I’m not impressed with this song, and the vocals are almost a chore to listen to. 6/10.
10. This Mortal Soil – I think that this is one of the best songs on the album, if not the best. My personal favorite of them all. Everything is well proportioned, and the lyrics are intense and fit perfectly with the instrumentals. Amazing song. 10/10.
11. Siberian Divide – Seems to differ from the other songs on the album a bit in terms of layout, a welcome change to the other songs which all have similar structure. With this song as well, I enjoy how well the music fits with the guitar. 8.5/10.
12. Pendulous Skin – Pretty good song, well made instrumental; but a terrible ending to this album. After hearing all of the really intense songs on this album, I was very disappointed that Mastodon left this album on the wrong note. 5/10.

Overall Review:
This isn't my favorite album by Mastodon, but it's still a damn good album. The one thing that dislike about Mastodon in general is the vocals, but everything else is perfection. Brann Dailor is a fucking monster in every one of these songs, and the instrumentals are flawless. I would have to give the album an 8/10.

Eh, I can't blame you. I'm a huge Metallica fan, they've always been my favorite, but I can definitely see why someone wouldn't like them. They haven't exactly gotten much GOOD publicity in their history.

I don't really care about publicity or anything, their singer just bothers me.

Yeah, that's usually a dealbreaker with most bands. It's hard to tolerate a band if you don't like the vocalist.

Yeah, that happens with a lot of screamo music to me, sometimes they'll have a kickass guitar riff but the singer just fucks it all
