I've never seen Mastodon live, are they the kind of band that play their songs by the number and note or do they improve parts of their songs adding more flare when they're playing live?

Looks like a pointless cash grab to me.

They play their songs 'by the number and note.' They don't really engage the crowd in any way unless they have technical difficulties, and Troy will walk up to a mic and go, "So... anybody got... any jokes...?"

I liked them live, but that was awhile ago. Don't know how I would feel now. But yeah, basically what Balls said.

metal bands don't normally improvise much...it's more about the composition ofthe tune.

I pay to see them play music, not tell jokes. I wouldn't go see a comedian an expect the, to sing a song in between jokes.

They are awesome live save for iffy vocals at times

So glad you registered just to say that. Cause you're completely right, every Mastodon album above a 4 is so much hatred.

^^^Haha, this should develop well.

And yah, I like Mastodon but they aren't anything special live. The vocals are pretty shitty. But seeing Brian Dailor (I think that's his name) pull off those tricky drum parts live is pretty breathtaking.

Mastodon are one of the dullest live bands around.

First time I saw them, just after Leviathan was amazing, crushingly heavy and really enthusiastic.

They play the songs well, but they don't really convey anything extra like a good live band does.

I'm seeing them in 8 days. Hope they're good.

Regardless, Converge will destroy.

balls to the wall put it perfectly

pointless cash grab
however if this was being released before crack the skye it would be worth it
who releases an EP of songs you put out 3 months ago?

Because the said item includes videos for two singles and three live tracks? The EP is no more of a cash grab than releasing the album to begin with.

I don't know, it could be worse. At least there's a mix of songs and it's not simply Oblivion, the score and then the video; there's a bit of this and that. Depending on price, may get this (if released in the UK)...
