(((O))) Review: Moon Machine – Moon Machine

I have a mixed relationship with progressive metal. There are times that I like it, and there are at times that I don’t. Now I didn’t use the word “hate” because it is such a strong word to use at times, and it would be wrong of me to use that. There is plenty from the genre that I really enjoy; Haken, Voivod, Opeth, Diablo Swing Orchestra, Ayreon, Mastodon, and of course, the masters of the prog metal genre, Rush. There’s also Dream Theater, their fifth studio album Metropolis Pt. 2: Scenes from a Memory is a stand-out. Now we have Moon Machine.

Mastodon: “We write our guitar parts separately then show them to each other. We’re not a jam band – we’re more like choreographed acrobatics”

Stylistically divergent – yet undoubtedly compatible – Mastodon guitarists Brent Hinds and Bill Kelliher unravel Hushed and Grim, the band’s first double album. Over the past two-decades-plus, Mastodon have established themselves as one of the best post-2000 progressive, psychedelic metal bands. Born with an equal love of Melvins, Metallica, Rush and Neurosis, the Atlanta-based quartet have blown minds with their bleak, angular rhythms, abrupt tempo changes, meandering atmospherics and psychotronic imagery.

Check Out Mastodon Video For “Teardrinker”

Hey X Peoria Metal heads, ready for new Mastodon?? The band has just unleashed a new single, “Tear Drinker”, and it’s downright awesome. To add to the fun of this new single, the Atlanta based Grammy Winning Rockers have released a new album, titled ‘Hushed And Grim’, this past October. Great to have Mastodon back slamming home their unique blend of Rock and Metal.

Mastodon husdeh and grim shirt

It’s Memorial Day weekend Mastodon husdeh and grim shirt . This year, we may not be outside grilling or hitting the beaches, but that doesn’t mean we can’t celebrate. Times are weird, and we thought we’d lean into the thing we love most about this time of year, the delicious food. We talked to our artist community about their favorite strange food combinations that they’ve tried and totally loved. A mayonnaise, peanut butter sandwich on toasted white bread with lettuce. In high school, a friend recommended that I try this sandwich. I was quite skeptical and thought it was a prank, but humored her. Hoodie, long-sleeved tee, female tee, men’s tee, 3-hole tee, V-neck tee. Turns out she wasn’t joking, it was tasty! I think everyone should try it at least once and see for themselves 😉 I wish I had that kind of job when I was young.

On Leaving Mastodon

So, happy new year! I hope 2022 comes with lots of good things for you. I’m excited to see what this new year brings my way! This post, though, is rather about something I left behind in 2021: Mastodon. My exit from the platform was a bit rushed, I didn’t wanna talk about it before some weeks had passed… mainly because I wanted to keep my emotions in check. I really want to talk about this, though; there is a lot to unravel here.

The Forsaken King (Unabridged)

Summary : The Forsaken King (Unabridged) New York Times best-selling author Penelope Sky releases her first sexy fantasy romance under the name Penelope Barsetti. Ivory: I see him watch me. Everywhere I go - he follows. He’s one of my father’s guards at the castle. Goes by the name Mastodon. There’s something about him I don’t like, but my warnings are never taken seriously. But I bet if my brother voiced the same concerns that would be no issue…just because he has balls and I don’t.
