Extinction does not kill the spirit of Mastodon

So I got my hands on "Mastodon: Live at the Aragon" (figuratively) and been listening to the concert DVD for the part in Crack the Skye album. And all I have to say is, it is effin phenomenal. Crack the Skye is Mastodon's fourth album and it is, in my opinion the cleanest of the four.

One of the most gorgeous looking album cover ever.

Now, the content of the concert might be lacking compared to "Beside You in Time" by Nine Inch Nails but I'd say that it is an awesome job of Mastodon for their first live album.

The title menu.

As you can see in the menu, it has four basic option of playing the concert, choosing the song, audio set up and Crack the Skye: The Movie which is the same movie that is played in the background when they play the concert.

The track list of the concert is basically all the songs that are contained in Crack the Skye album and in their proper arrangement as well which is awesome as the flow of the songs is not disrupted. They also play a song each from each of their previous album. They even play Circle of Cysquatch from their Blood Mountain album.

But of course, the main highlight for me was the epic 10 minutes and 13 minutes long "The Czar" and "The Last Baron" from their Crack the Skye album. Kudos to them for being able to perform it live.

Some screenshots of the DVD:

Brent Hinds join in the fun of singing.

Go, Troy, shred their heads off!

LONG LIVE MASTODON. Oh, and can't wait for "The Hunter"
