Unfortunately, I was to be disappointed. Now let me get this straight, it wasn't Mastodon's fault. From what I could hear, the music was well played, with enthusiasm and with lots of detail...we just couldn't hear it. There was way too much emphasis on being 'heavy', which resulted in the music getting lost.
Now Mastodon is a heavy group, I agree (in facial hair terms if nothing else!) but they also have a lot of intricacies in their music that I really enjoy. Some pieces were so badly rendered it took until the chorus for me to work out what the song was...
Plus it was sold out, with the inevitable crowds. Eventually we backed off to outside the merchandise stand so I could put my hand over my head to get a view..ish.
So as I say, not Mastodon's fault, but frustrating as I love the band. They need to try the Club Academy, much better quality. Or move up to MEN!
