The Atlanta-based progressive-metal band "Mastodon" are really something special. Every one in the band are doing some vocals. They are experimenting with odd time-signatures and other stuff.

A great example is "Siberian Divide". Cedric Bixler-Zavala from Mars Volta (Love'em) is contributing with some vocals in the song(chorus parts, like the one @ 1:45:

Mastodon also likes doing concept albums, for example, "Siberian Divide" are part of a concept-album about "blood mountain".
Another concept-album of theirs, is "Leviathan" which is based on Herman Melvilles story about Moby Dick.
One song from that album are "Iron Tusk".

Andrew Says: I Love this Band! I have actually been listening to Mastodon for quite a while, but I didn't realize that Cedric had done singing for them (I only own "Crack The Skye").

Thanks a ton for the band find!

About The Writer

My name is Andrew Muller. I love creative art, music, television shows, movies, video games, and a good story.

If you had to find me somewhere, you would probably find me down at O'neils home cooking eating an organic sweet-potato bun breakfast sandwich with ham.

Among my friends, it's a "Muller Classic Move" to eat Mcdonald's at 2am because it's cheap and open 24/7. The joke here is that I'm an idiot. 

I play drums, guitar, piano, and I write & perform music for My Goal Is Telepathy. Take a listen to the latest sound here.
