One thought on “Episode 8: Mastodon

  1. As someone who loves both Mastodon and The Decemberists this was fun to find. If you ever do this the other way around The Decemberists seem like a good band to cover as they seem to have some moments I think someone who likes metal would appreciate (The Tain for example). Also looking forward to there being and Opeth episode as they’re my favorite band (Decemberists are #2 lol). Agalloch would be another I’d enjoy there being an episode on as they were a band I quickly appreciated when getting into metal from an indie/alt rock perspective.
