Both of those were awesome. I've never heard Feist before, but it was really interesting to hear how she interpreted the elements of Black Tongue. "Mastodon without Brann? Blasphemy! Oh wait, this is totally wicked."

Respect.

Can't believe this is actually happening. Both were incredibly interesting tracks that each made the cover their own. Really neat!

Really don't get what ppl were expecting from Feist's track, she's not metal so it's obviously going to be quite a bit different from the original "Black Tongue".

The Mastodon cover is pretty spiffy. The song wouldn't feel out of place on the hunter. If I put on my
objective sunglasses(not keen on Fiest's genre) I reckon her cover is wicked as well.

Gave a listen to the Flaming Lips cover as well. T'WAS SHIT! Mastodon didn't have much of a good song
to work off, so that cover is understandably terrible.
