Alrighty, We've got Trey talking about how Tool's his new favorite band, Mastadon making Jambase's home page twice in a month, and Dave Schools talking about Dethklok. While Mastadon is pretty brutal, they've got nothing on Dethklok, the band from Metalocalypse (Adult Swim) that made Dave Schools write an e-mail saying...

Hey [Adult Swim]
This is Dave Schools, Bassist for Widespread Panic
I just wanted to say that after witnessing
The rock and roll evil that is Dethklok
We have completely changed our style
No more unicorns and rainbows for us
In deference to Murderface (the bassist)
I now perform bass solos with my c*ck!
On tour now.

While I used to hate metal, Dethklok has converted me. No more unicorns and rainbows, this is an inevitable progression people. Don't beleive me, scope out Metalocalypse on fix. (It's free!) Dave Schools was converted, and the link's below.

I just checked the Mastodon website and it seems as if jambase has made a mistake. On 2/3 they are playing POP'S in Sauget IL, NOT Pop's Blue Moon.

hey crazyleggedelbow,

they just played west coast dates last month with converge and the bronx. don't feel bad, i missed it to.

from what i've seen mastadon doesn't seem that awesome live. the instrumental parts sound great but the vocals aren't very strong.

i'd have to say they fucking rule not(live). i love their studio shit, so i'm not hating at all.

someone who has seen them live please comment on thier vocals. i've only seen two songs performed live, that's not enough for me to draw a conclusion.
