Categories: Reviews

Mastodon, Opeth & Ghost 05/12/12 Masquerade  Music Park/Atlanta, GA Words by JakobRoss424 Millions of years ago, before civilization existed outside of Mexico, the Aztecs (because screw the Mayans) predicted that one day, a tour would come along that would relentlessly and brutally destroy any town in its path. This tour would be known as the Heritage Hunter tour, featuring Opeth and Mastodon touring in support of their respective 2011 releases, Heritage and The Hunter. Opening for them would be the mighty Ghost, who hail from ... Read More

An Open Letter To Feist and Mastodon

Categories: Reviews

An Open Letter To Feist and Mastodon Dear Feist & Mastodon, So there I was in the dentist chair this morning getting my face drilled once again (let this be a friendly reminder that not having dental insurance for a decade is no excuse for skipping your bi-annual cleanings) when I had what I would like to believe is a genius idea. To distract you from what is going on inside your mouth, my dentist has this big monitor where her victims patients can ... Read More

Ghost & Mastodon 04/26/12: Gibson Amphitheatre – Universal City, CA

Categories: Reviews

Ghost & Mastodon 04/26/12 Gibson Ampitheatre - Universal City, CA Words/Photos by Reverend Justito Universal Studios Hollywood is always a bizarre place to see a heavy metal show.

I actually thought it was an odd place for the Heritage Hunter Tour to be stopping ... Read More

2012: A Music Odyssey Part 2 Words by Jakob Ross 10. Opeth When the Heritage Hunter tour was announced, I knew I had to go. Opeth was the band on the tour that I was the least familiar with, and upon fully immersing myself in their challenging brand of progressive metal, I knew I'd be in for a fantastic show. Combining light, almost beautiful song structures with the louder, heavier sounds of common heavy metal (and a touch of dry, awkward humor from frontman Mikael ... Read More
